Canada’s Top-Terpene Varieties: Unveiling the Most Potent Strains

Gone are the days of the solitary product hunt in the shadowy corners of the grey market. In the past, a visit to your dealer meant relying on your senses to gauge quality – if it smelled good, chances were it smoked just as well.

But with the dawn of legalization came a tidal wave of THC fervor, propelling brands to push potency to unprecedented levels. Fast forward several years into the era of legal cannabis, and THC levels frequently soar to the 30% mark, placing emphasis squarely on quality.

Enter terpenes, the unsung heroes of cannabis aroma and taste. These aromatic compounds, abundant in cannabis strains, give rise to an astonishing spectrum of flavors and fragrances. With over 100 terpenes identified in cannabis, the possibilities are endless.

Let’s explore some of Canada’s most terpene-rich strains:
