Hey everyone! This is Cory here with another article for your reading pleasure!
The industry has once again dropped a plethora of awesome new products!
However, what I really want to bring more attention to is the variety of half ounce, aka 14 gram, options that are now available at your favourite local cannabis store!
WAIT, WHY WOULD I BUY SO MUCH OF ONE STRAIN?
WELL, One of the advantages of purchasing larger quantities of cannabis that you get a better cost per gram, compared to buying 3.5 grams or 7 grams.
We are fortunately starting to see a larger amount of craft cannabis licensed producers release their strains in the 14 gram quantity.
Which means if you find a strain you really enjoy, you can finally get a better cost per gram if you buy a larger amount.
I personally find the half ounce quantity to be the perfect amount. It’s just the right amount where you can really dive into the flavour and effect of that particular strain and still finish it before you start to build up a strain tolerance.
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT A CRAFT CANNABIS PRODUCER THOUGH?
Craft cannabis Licensed Producers or LP’s are limited to an annual production of less than 10,000kg. In order to be considered ‘craft’ a producer must also hang dried, hand trimmed and hand packaged.
HERE IS A SHORT LIST OF SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS FAVOURITE 14 GRAM OPTIONS
A BLK MKT Exclusive. Close your eyes and imagine sweet lime cordial syrup, with dense buds that are completely iced out in trichomes, with hints of bold purple inside.
MacFlurry is a cross between Ice Cream Cake and MAC (Miracle Alien Cookies).
Our most recent batch of MacFlurry was coming in at over 30% THC, with around 3% terpenes. I have seen recent batches hit as high as 33% THC! I am a huge fan of MAC strains because of the powerful effect usually associated with strong hybrids.
Then you mix in some heavy hitting indica from the Ice Cream Cake, and you’ve got yourself a top-notch, high-quality strain!
The nug appeal is like no other, I always like reference how weed from BLK MKT looks like the type of pictures I used to see in High Times magazine! I used to look at pictures of weed in magazines and wonder what it would be like to smoke something that beautiful!
Well, this is it! My lifelong search for that perfect nug finally came to an end when I pulled out a nice big top cola from my half ounce of MacFlurry! BLK MKT provides a humidity pack in all 14g containers, which are packaged in a beautiful, flat black, glass tube.
If you haven’t tried BLK MKT’s MacFlurry yet, make sure you stop by a Budders Cannabis Store near you and pick one up before I smoke them all myself!
Looking for the Fire, that Gas! Look no further! This flower is full of taste, burns great and the nose is full diesel. Cured to perfection with a 14 day hang dry that makes the terpenes talk loud.
Recent batches were hitting that sweet spot around 25% THC and normally rock a decent amount of terpenes at 3%.
Grown in Duncan, British Columbia – hand trimmed and hand packaged. Exotic Gas by The Loud Plug is a Pink Cookies strain, a potent indica dominant hybrid with a strong Kush nose. The high is commonly known to immediately leaving you in a state of relaxation with uplifting cerebral thoughts.
A great smoke for weekends, or end of day vibes! Anytime I feel like smoking a good old pink kush or something similar, I find myself reaching for the Exotic Gas (Pink Cookies), because you get that same hit and taste that has made pink strains so popular, but with a lot more flavour, and a lot stronger potency! Stop by a Budders Cannabis and ask a budtender for some Exotic Gas, you’ll be glad you did!
Straight outta California! The Brand Cookies was introduced to the OCS a few months back. It was an American brand from San Francisco that is now grown in British Columbia.
Georgia Pie is a potent hybrid strain bred by Seed Junky Genetics and is a cross between Gellati and Kush Mints. This strain is known for having a pungent aroma that smells like a fresh peach cobbler.
From the legendary Cookies team, masterfully cultivated at scale by Pure Sunfarms. THC Ranging from 21-28% and a fair level of terpenes normally coming in around 2 or 3 %.
Hybrid Greenhouse grown, hang dried, machine trimmed and hand groomed. Georgia Pie features some absolutely stunning bud appeal! Very nice hues of purple paired with a nice thick layer of trichomes.
Georgie Pie is a must try. The first time a ripped open a bag, it instantly filled the room with the most potent, delicious cannabis smell I have ever experienced! Make sure you hit up a Budders Cannabis dispensary today and consider getting yourself a 14g bag of Georgia Pie!
From MTL Cannabis, Sage N’ Sour is a Sativa-dominant cross between the pungent Sour Diesel and S.A.G.E. This strain takes its well-known Sour Diesel lineage to the next level with a citric bouquet of aromas.
Sage N’ Sour has over 1% CBG and its dominant terpene is Terpinolene, typically found in true sativas, lilac, nutmeg, and cumin.
Grown in Montreal, Quebec – Indoor, hang dried, hand trimmed! Comes with a humidity pack in a perfect sized round black container.
I’m personally not a huge fan of sativas but when I am looking for a good daytime smoke or something good for cleaning the house, I will almost always reach for a diesel strain like Sage N’ Sour.
If you haven’t experienced a strain from MTL Cannabis yet, they also have an amazing Cookies N’ Cream hybrid! You can also place an order for in-store pick up or delivery through our website at budders.ca .
Another personal favourite, from MSIKU, White Wedding. A vibrant, purple and green strain coated in a heavy layer of trichomes reminiscent of an early winter frost.
White Wedding is unique and highly potent with earthy notes and coffee undertones. Hang dried and hand trimmed to preserve aroma and flavours.
If you’re like me, sometimes I feel like the better the weed looks the better my buzz is! Now obviously that’s not the case, but in this instance, the thick layer of trichomes gets me so excited to take a toke! I personally enjoy vaping this strain to really bring out the full flavour and effect!
Everyone is always hooked on west coast, or BC grown cannabis! But, MSIKU is paving the way from the east coast. From Halifax, Nova Scotia, this indigenous licensed producer has been pumping out high quality, craft cannabis for a while now!
Every time we would get their White Wedding, Nova Glue, Peggy’s Pride, or Gellati, I would scoop one up and absolutely fly through it! Truly amazing strains!

Now something I thought was awesome about Bullrider is that its co-owned by hip-hop artist Drake! Bred by Compound Genetics - KK Mints is a name given to this strain, due to the fact that its legacy name is heavily copyrighted in a galaxy far far away.
Its genetic lineage is Khalifa Kush x The Menthol – this highly potent hybrid indica has buds that are typically smaller and heavily frosted in dense trichome coverage with vivid yellow-orange pistils, bright green buds and hints of violets & purples.

These frosty flowers are completely coated in trichomes from tip to tip and feature a dense forest green flower structure, spotted with wavy orange pistils.
Despite a THC range of 20-26%, the reason I tell customers all the time that I’m a big fan of ‘Glue’ strains is because of how hard they hit! Even when glue strains come in around 18-20% THC, I still find they absolutely get me glued down.
Between the absolutely stunning bud appeal, and the intense potency and aroma, Zookies by Flint & Embers is an incredible seller at Budders Cannabis stores.
