From time to time, we hear some weed enthusiasts claiming to have come across a unique and rare strain.
More often than not, these unique strains either turn out to be newly launched hybrids, or less popular existing strains.
But at the same time, there are a number of strains out there which are quite hard to get your hands on.
Some of these strains which only come once a season, or are quite rare in a certain area.
If you buy your weed from a local brick and mortar establishment, you might be aware of such flowers, since they might only rarely ever be available.
Then, we have some strains which have gained a legendary status.
These strains tend to be more expensive, and offer the most exquisite experience known to man.
As a result, these strains are highly sought after, and many weed lovers will be willing to pay higher prices just to get a hold of them.
However, this is where the trouble starts.
Since these strains are quite rare, chances are that many users have never seen them before. As a result, you might just get scammed, and end up with a product not worth the price you paid for it.
This is where we come in. In this article, we will be discussing 10 of the most rare strains in Canada.
While many weed lovers in Canada have heard of this strain, and many might have even tried it, the fact remains that there just isn’t enough of this indica dominant strain in the country.
Despite it being quite rare, Blueberry is famously known for being one of the most potent strains in the market, with some of the highest THC levels we have ever seen.
As a result, the strain packs a powerful punch which sets in rather quickly and lasts much longer than you would expect it to.
Another rare strain in the market, Critique is so old that no one knows for sure where it descends from.
One of the few perfectly balanced hybrids in the world, Critique offers its users a unique and balanced high, which is both mentally stimulating and relaxing at the same time.
This is possible because this strain contains high amounts of both THC and CBD. As a result, users can expect a creative and emotional boost, as well as a bodywide relaxing high.
3. Gorilla Bomb
As one of the few perfectly balanced hybrids in the entire world, Gorilla Bomb has earned its place in this list.
Containing moderate amounts of THC and CBD, Gorilla Bomb offers its users a unique and incomparable high, which leaves them feeling relaxed, sedated and in a couch locked state for hours on end.
However what makes it truly rare is its quality, and the fact that it requires special handling and storage treatment which not all dispensaries cater to.
4. Hindu Kush
Sure many of us have heard of the Hindu Kush, the legendary 100% pure indica strain which originates from the vast mountain ranges of Pakistan and Afghanistan.
However, while many people love this strain, it also happens to be among the rarest strains you’d find in the market.
Why? Because there just isn’t enough demand in the market for this strain. A lot of people prefer hybrids to OGs, and hence not many dispensaries stock the strain.
However, if you are looking for something more potent and fun to smoke, be sure to choose the Hindu Kush before it vanishes from the market altogether.
5. Panama Red
Famous since the 1960’s, Panama Red is most commonly known for the fiery red accents in its buds.
A pure sativa strain, the demand for Panama Red has reduced today due to many reasons, but primarily due to the market’s increased preference of hybrids.
While a few people still grow and sell this strain, the sad fact is that not many people want to purchase this strain anymore. And pretty soon due to the decreased demand, we might not see this strain anymore at all.
6. Puna Budder
If you know someone who’s been smoking weed since the 70s, be sure to ask them about the Puna Budder.
This classic 70’s strain contained upto 20% THC content, and used to be the most smoked strain in Canada and the US.
However, the strain is almost non-existent nowadays, especially due to police crackdowns before legalization.
7. Angola Roja
If you think that the Puna Budder is old, then you are in for a surprise. The Angola Roja is currently ranked as the oldest strain in the world, and can be traced back to the Portugese empire in the 1500s.
Truly famous in the 1960s, weed enthusiasts today owe a lot to this strain, because if the legends are true, the Angola Roja has fathered many of the strains we love today.
The word chronic is regularly used with cannabis, especially since Dr. Dre used it in some of his raps in the 90s and made it synonymous with weed.
However, many people forget that Chronic is a highly potent strain on its own.
It was extremely famous in the 90s, and can still be found occasionally in dispensaries in Canada.
The strain has a truly diverse taste and aroma, and offers mouth watering combinations of orange, pepper, nectar, and lemon.
9. Bubba OG
While the OG Kush remains one of Canada’s favorite strains, the original Bubba OG is extremely difficult to find.
The strain was largely considered one of the best, and was a cross between the pre-98 Bubba Kush and the Ghost OG.
As a result, Bubba OG is extremely potent and has an exquisite flavor, a combination to die for.
Bubba OG, or BOG as it was called back then, worked wonders for chronic pain, nausea, muscle spasms and insomnia.
10. Black Diamond
An indica dominant hybrid descending from Blackberry and Diamond OG, Black Diamond is an extremely rare strain which cannot be found easily in the market.
As a high quality hybrid strain, Black Diamond is extremely potent and is primarily used for medicinal purposes.
Anecdotal evidence tells us that the strain has been effectively used against a number of conditions, including chronic pain, insomnia, OCD, PTSD, anxiety and stress.
