This week’s election has sparked a lot of interest in Canada. There’s been so much interest, in fact, that the Canadian immigration website crashed during the US election. Whether you plan to visit America’s northern neighbor or move there for good, here is what you should know about marijuana in Canada.

Legal Status

Medical marijuana is legal in Canada, but there aren’t clear rules like those in America. Vancouver, which is located on Canada’s west coast, has city-regulated dispensaries. There are no recreational areas in Canada, but most Canadians are for marijuana legalization. Also, Alaska, at Canada’s northwest corner, is a US recreational state.

Those moving long-term might want to consider growing their own. I Love Growing Marijuana offers free shipping to Canada.

Top Strains

When you first arrive, try some Canadian weed if you can. Canada has developed a few unique strains perfect for recovering from the election. Here are some of them:


These Indica dominant plants have a powerful cerebral effect but take a little while to land. They work miracles against anxiety (which might come in handy) and our autoflowering seeds make it easy on the new grower.


This Indica strain is a combination of Shiskaberry and God Bud. Its focus is on relaxation, but it is also good for pain relief and a better state of mind. Nukem will help any American find a little peace while relaxing in Canada.

Island Sweet Skunk

A west coast variety with tropical undertones, Island Sweet Skunk is a relaxing, yet uplifting sativa.  Grown near the southwest border with the United States, this strain is delightfully Canadian. Enjoy its intricate flavors while exploring Canada.

OG Shark

OG Shark is Canada’s unique OG variety that is a potent blend of lemon and pine flavors. It is a hybrid that is perfect for stress, depression, and headaches. It’s a great cure for a stressful election.

Black Tuna

British Columbia has a famous hybrid it calls Black Tuna. It is a mixture of Herijuana and Lamb’s Bread that was originally sold in tuna cans. Now that is stealth packaging! Today, Canadians enjoy this potent strain (which is wonderful for those sleepless nights) without the tuna can.


Rumor has it, the University of British Columbia developed this strain to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. It is an indica strain that combats nausea, stress, and insomnia.  Chemo has a woody and earthy aroma.
