Local Strains of Cannabis in Hamilton

Hamilton’s Best Buds at Your Fingertips


We’re willing to bet that every time you’ve visited a Hamilton dispensary, they’ve made claims about having the best weed strains around, right?

That’s an easy claim to make, but the real question is whether or not these dispensaries in Hamilton actually know detailed information about the buds that they are selling. It’s one thing to know whether a cannabis strain is indica vs sativa, but that information can only take you so far.

In today’s world with hundreds, if not thousands of cannabis strains on the market at any given time, you should be able to source more information than just what family your flowers fall into.

How strong are they? What do they taste/smell like? What kind of effects can you expect from consuming each strain? These are all important questions that will help shape whether or not you have a positive cannabis experience or a disappointing buzz that wasn’t really what you were looking for.

Hello Cannabis takes pride in thoroughly educating all of our staff and budtenders, so that we can always guide you towards the perfect cannabis experience for your preferences.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a handful of our best local marijuana strains to help you decide what you’d like to buy on your next visit to our Hamilton store.


Best Sativa Strains in Hamilton


Energy, Creativity & Focus



Mysteriously, the exact origins of this popular pure sativa strain aren’t fully known. However, it’s understood that this strain is a cross between Mexican Sativa, Congolese and Afghani Landrace. This strong sativa strain is recognizable by its fragrant aroma, which has been compared to many things; from cheese to spices, to fruits and berries, depending on the observer. One thing is for certain with this strain, with THC levels between 18%-21%, it’s no surprise that it’s considered one of the best sativa strains around.



Produced by Dinafem by crossing two of their most popular strains, Haze and White Widow, Moby Dick has quickly become one of the most popular sativa strains in Hamilton. This very cerebral strain takes on a lot of the typical sativa effects at the beginning thanks to Haze (energized, increased heart rate, eye/face pressure). After about an hour these effects begin to dull and the user will begin to feel more relaxed and floatier, likely due to the White Widow traits. Possibly the most popular thing about this strain apart from its effects (and the fact that its THC can run as high as 20%), is that its flower has a distinctively pleasant smell, often compared to vanilla, eucalyptus and tropical fruits.


Best Indica Strains in Hamilton


Soothing, Calm & Relaxation



This fantastic indica dominant strain is grown locally by Redecan in Niagara Falls, ON. Developed as a cross between the ‘Amherst Super Skunk’ and ‘Chemdawg’ strains, this strain is fairly potent with THC ranging from 14%-20%. It’s known for its soothing citrus/diesel aroma, although the bud itself can be quite pungent; often referred to as the kind of cannabis you ‘can smell a mile away’. As strong as its scent may be, its ability to soothe and relax users makes it a favorite among those with an indica preference.


Best Hybrid Marijuana Strains


The Best of Both Worlds



Also known simply as ‘Kish’, this incredibly popular indica-dominant hybrid strain was created by crossing DJ Short Blueberry with an unknown Afghani strain. The flower has a very gentle, fruity, almost berry-like aroma, which can be shocking for users who discover the strains 14%-20% THC range (and some batches even reaching as high as 26%!). The effects of this strain can feel like a rollercoaster, with the beginning leading towards high levels of focus and increased happiness. All motivation for productivity will fade later in the high, when this strain is known for promoting a relaxed, dreamy state that can help lead to a deep sleep.



Offering a fruity, earthy flavor, this strain is a great example of how very different varieties can sometimes be a perfect pairing when crossbred. Developed from crossing the potent sativa Grapefruit with the equally strong hybrid GG1 (Gorilla Glue 1), this strain is certainly not for the faint of heart with its 17%-23% THC count. Produced by Emerald Health, this citrusy flower is known for elevating feelings of euphoria, happiness and even arousal; making a perfect choice for date night with your partner or spouse.
