I took it upon myself to pick the top 10 OCS products every cannabis enthusiast should try from the OCS (as of June 2020). Personally, I find the the Ontario Cannabis Store to be a bottomless pit of information and strains, leaving me endlessly browsing their website. BUT I’m also very indecisive. I’ll do my best to update this list every single month moving forward so as to help you navigate all of the products. It seems like every month they are adding more and more! Which is f*cking awesome.
Also, been noticing that the OCS has a lot of exclusive products that other dispensaries in Ontario do NOT have.
Here are my top OCS products picks for flower:
San Rafael’s Pink Kush
Time and time again this strain keeps making its way back onto our lists and one of the reasons is that San Rafael does an incredible job cultivating this strain.
This 90/10 indica dominant hybrid is visually striking. Broken Coast uses a hand-trim/hang-dry method so the trichomes remained preserved. The nugs are densely coated with trichomes that resemble sugar coated candies, and the taste is just as sweet.
Pink Kush brings on relaxation and giggles that pair with a euphoric high. As the high progresses you’ll find any physical pain is relieved.
You can find San Rafael Pink Kush on the OSC online store starting at $13.55/gram. One of the best OCS products out there.
San Rafael’s Delahaze
We’ll start with this, beginners beware – Delahaze carries a high THC content of up to 28%!
This 70/30 sativa hybrid carries a very flavourful profile, and that’s its strongest selling point. It’s pungent and skunky but holds a fruity citrus undertone. This scent expands when Delahaze is burned with the smoke tasting like a ripe mango.
The high is described as cerebral and “happy”. The strain will keep you level-headed and energetic as you focus on whatever tasks or errands that are on hand.
You can pickup San Rafael Delahaze here for $41.45/3.5g.
7 Acres’ Jack Haze
Cerebral and stimulating are some of the words that can be used to describe 7Acres’ Jack Haze strain.
The nugs are dense and ragged with pistils twisting through the emerald hues. A properly cured Jack Haze, like this one, will give off a musty smell with a piney and wooden undertone.
Like most sativas, the effect takes on quick. The stimulating properties will make you see connections that would otherwise go unnoticed. You can use Jack Haze to accomplish a mountain of tasks or use it for some introspective solo time.
Jack Haze can also be used for medicinal purposes like helping patients who suffer form ADD, alleviating anxiety, and relieving pains and headaches.
This sativa dominant hybrid is a must try if you’re a die-hard sativa fan.
Grab yours for $43.95/3.5g.
Vertical’s Cold Creek Kush
Cold Creek Kush is a very potent indica hybrid (90/10) that carries THC levels as high as 25%. It stems from two popular strains, Chemdawg 91 and MK Ultra and because of this Cold Creek Kush is impossible to keep on the shelves of a dispensary.
Like most indicas, you’ll notice the pistils webbing in, out, and around the bud. Vertical uses the hand-trim/hang-dry method which preserves the trichomes and allows the end user to get the most out of their product.
When ground up, the room will fill with a fresh cloud of earth and spice. When burnt, this bud tastes pungent, like spicy herbs.
The high is a slow burn, so burn slow. It creeps and builds up without you even recognizing it. You may find yourself finishing a joint before realizing how high you actually are.
The high is warm and relaxing. You’ll find any pains are eased and you’ll be distracted from your woes.
For only $40.80/3.5g, we highly recommend this pickup – while it lasts.
DNA Genetics’ Kosher Kush
Kosher Kush has not only won the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in 2012, but it’s the first commercial strain to be blessed by a Rabbi. The strain is an indica dominant hybrid (80/20) with THC content that can be as high as 26%, so novice users beware.
Kosher Kush displays amber pistils that wrap around a variety of green shades. It has a unique yet familiar smell that’s reminiscent of rich earth and fruit.
This strain is meant for lazy days as the high will bond you to the couch and leave you sedated. You’ll find Kosher Kush is a great way to deal with insomnia or any body aches and pains.
Grab this Kosher strain for only $12.60/gram.
Northern Green’s Polar Kish
Polar Kish was the a strain that really caught my eye in the sea of buds on the OCS website. This indica dominant strain is hand-trimmed and hung-dry. Can you see the pattern here?
You can literally smell the fresh spring forest along with the fruity undertones right through your electronics screen. The nugs are dense and moss-like with curling pistils and a rich trichome coating.
Like all indices the high is heavy and relaxing. Depending on the amount consumed, you may feel the weight of your eyelids or your appetite growing. This is a strain that you should definitely experience.
Polak Kish has is currently discounted. Get yours for only $7.57/gram.
Wappa is a indica leaning (60/40) hybrid with relaxing effects, an appealing flavour profile, and THC percentages hitting as high as 26%.
The buds are solid and tightly packed with a structure that is often associated with most indica’s. The leaves are a mottled variety of green with orange and yellow pistils twisting throughout the bud. Topping it all off is a coat of amber trichomes that often gives off a yellow glow.
Wappa has a strong but sweet aroma that hints of skunk. The smell is accented with a light citrus scent. When burnt the taste is simultaneously herbal and skunky.
The high is a creeper but the effects are very soothing. You’ll slip into a heavy high and the feeling of relaxation will flood down your spine. There is some mental stimulation as well, because Wappa can often leave users fixated on a simple task.
Give it a go for only $9.90/gram. Honestly, this is the best OCS products out there right now. Haven’t been able to find a better flower in the legal market.
If the ritual of grinding and rolling isn’t for you, we’ve also picked out some modern options for smoking as well. These are the top vapes available on the OCS right now.
Good Supply’s Pineapple Express Cartridge (510 Thread)
Pineapple Express has been a fan favourite for sometime now. You can find this distillate carrying THC levels as high as 83% and it’s the perfect companion when you’re on the go.
The taste is often compared to a fresh fruit stand, with overtones of fresh pineapple and mango, and undertones of green apple and pine. This tropical strain will replace your post meal dessert or morning cup of coffee.
The buzz is powerful and will have you floating in no time. The mild body numb is accompanied by a heady and happy high that will leave you feeling creative or talkative, or both. The energy this strain provides makes it easy to get through a short to-do list.
Pickup a .5gram cartridge for only $43.95.
Wayfarer’s Northern Lights Cartridge (510 Thread)
This award winning95/5 indica dominant hybrid packs a knockout punch. Often referred to as the “two hit and quit” strain, this Northern Lights oil will mold you to the couch indefinitely.
This cartridge does a great job of delivering a taste that highlights the characteristics of the train, with notes of lemon and pepper.
We recommend you smoke this strain after a long day or your day off as this will help you reach your maximum relaxation potential. You may find this strain helps alleviate stress, anxiety, and chronic pains.
This is considered to be one of the most popular strains of all time and a top OCS products.
Kolab Project’s Sativa Disposable Pen
This sativa pen is a great if you’re a novice to the cannabis vape market. This disposable vape pen come with a rechargeable battery a decent THC percentage that canoe as high as 88%.
The flavour profile is influenced by the Strawberry Ice strain that will carry fruit flavours and a subtle mint undertone.
We recommend trying this out so you can set a benchmark for your tolerance and see if the vape pen market is something you want to experiment with.
This is a full set so no additional parts are required. Just ‘fire it’ up and go about your day.
$52.95/.3g – battery included here.
