Five Strains That’ll Make You Feel Like It’s Spring

The sun is shining, dispensaries are open, and the first spring of Canadian legalization is here! If you’re planning on laying in the grass and looking up at the clouds, here’s what should be in the joint hanging out of your mouth.


1. Sour Patch Kids

Sour Patch Kids Nug

This Sour Diesel x Sour Kush cross breed is a decent pain reliever and good daytime stress reliever for the experienced smoker. If you’re smoking this indica-dominant hybrid, pull up on your couch with some snacks and the Netflix series you’ve been anticipating all winter. The smoke is sweet with a slight diesel aftertaste. The high starts light and then it hits your body to give you a relaxing but very stoner-eyed state of chill. Recommended for catching up on Netflix on a rainy spring day 🌸

  • THC 24.00 - 31.00% (Cannasos)
  • CBD 0 - 1.00% (Cannasos)

2. Blue Dream

Blue Dream by Aurora

The lovechild of Super Silver Haze and Blueberry Indica, this strain is a sativa-dominant bud that will leave your head in the clouds. This strain is good for calming day-to-day mood disorders such as anxiety, depression and ADHD/ADD. Originally from California, this West-coast bud is a pungent balance of earthiness and fruitiness, perfect for a day in the park. Smoking some Blue Dream, pack a blanket and some snacks for a relaxing spring afternoon of cloud-watching. ⛅


  • THC 13.00 - 22.00% (OCS)
  • CBD 0 - 1.00% (OCS)


3. Ultra Sour

Ultra Sour by Seven Oaks

For the experienced consumer, Ultra Sour brings the ultimate head euphoria with the flavours of pine and citrus. It’s a harsh smoke with a good high, leaving you feeling happy and euphoric and not terribly hungry. Get some spring cleaning done and kick off the warm weather with a joint of Ultra Sour, but be wary! Too much of this deep green sativa bud and you’ll be feeling deep green yourself.

  • THC 13.0 - 20.0% (OCS)
  • CBD 0.0 - 2.0% (OCS)


4. Airplane Mode

Airplane Mode by Alta Vie

If you’re looking to unwind and switch off at the end of the day, the name of this strain is self-explanatory. Airplane Mode provides a user-friendly sense of calm without the added anxiety that can come with high-THC strains. If you are an irregular consumer, or you have a low tolerance to indica, this strain will have a stronger effect and leave you feeling like a marshmallow. Bring Airplane Mode with you to relax in a park or watch the sunset and you’ll be flying high. ✈️


  • THC 12.0 - 18.0% (OCS)
  • CBD 0.0 - 1.0% (OCS)


5. Banana Split

Banana Split by Aurora

Consider this your newest sweet treat of the spring! Described by the OCB as having “hints of sour fruitiness” with “the taste of tropical bananas,” this strain is indica-dominant and delicious. Pair your high with a real sweet treat to beat the spring heat and get the ultimate Banana Split experience. 🍦

  • THC 8.00 - 17.00% (OCS)
  • CBD 0 - 1.00% (OCS)
