popular cannabis strains

Cannabis was finally legalized across Canada as Justin Trudeau promised in an effort to keep the profits from “criminals”. However things didn’t go according to plan with the rocky rollout, especially in the province of Ontario.

While neighbouring provinces launched brick-and-mortar stores that had line-ups for blocks, Ontarian’s were limited to only the Ontario Cannabis Store website.

Many took to twitter with complaints about having issues with the website, many had issues with delivery times taking several weeks and of course the latest news that the OCS website had sent their customers moldy weed.

There are several hundred websites however which the Ontario Cannabis Store has to compete with which are mainly located in British Columbia which has long been known for being the weed capital of Canada.

There are thousands of cannabis strains in existence and while hard to believe, most websites tend to have very few strains in common.

Weed List on carries thousands of cannabis products including hundreds of strains available for purchase online in Canada.

In this article we are going to examine 8 popular cannabis strains that are found on both the Ontario Cannabis Store website and Weed List and compare prices.
