REDECAN Cannabis Strain Review
REDECAN Cannabis and other LP’s have been under fire in the cananbis community for their high prices. The price of weed is a tricky subject. Look on the global scale and you’ll see anything from $43.41 or $43.12 per gram in cities like Tokyo and Seoul, respectively, all the way down to $1.78 per gram in Quito, Ecuador.
There’s also the incredibly high-end side of things, where cannabis prices rise to dizzying heights. Fans of rapper 2 Chainz will likely be familiar with Isla O.G. after he featured it on his show, Most Expensive Shit; that strain comes to a whopping $1063 per ounce. Additionally, according to weedsmart.ca, Fruity Pebbles can cost around $1,325 per ounce, while Cream of the Crop, Cannabis Caviar, goes for a staggering $1800 per ounce.
A dense, tightly-packed bud with large, solid flowers. Wappa has a strong and sweet aroma that leans towards the skunk-ier side of things, and has a clean weed taste. Expect a light green bud with orange hairs. The effects will likely be in the happy/relaxed camp. With a THC potential of 21.6%, it’s advised that this strain be reserved for nighttime.
Resin-coated buds and a musky/tropical fruit flavour, with undertones of berry, lavender, and pine. The terpene profile consists of beta-caryophyllene, trans-caryophyllene, humulene, myrcene, and limonene, so expect an earthy and citrusy odour. God Bud is a mix of Hawaiian, Purple Skunk, and the mysterious Canadian strain known only as “God”. It has a medium THC potency with a green and white colour. If the product comes from the RedeCan facility, it’s green-house grown in pesticide-free, natural lighting conditions, then hang-dried, hand-trimmed, sterilized, and inspected.
A 60/40 sativa dominant hybrid, which is bred by combining Juanita La Lagrimosa (a Mexican-Afghani-Spanish hybrid) with Kalijah (Blue Heaven crossed with a Mexican-Afghani hybrid). This affordable strain’s terpene profile consists of alpha-pinene, limonene, linalool, and myrcene, so it has floral, fruity, and spicy aromas. This strain will likely give you a bit more energy and focus, but some users find Dancehall to provide relief too.
A Canadian hybrid with acute cerebral effects. It possesses a lot of the same traits as another affordable, and much more well-known strain called White Widow. Jean Guy’s dark green buds are packed with golden crystal trichomes, and due to the trans-caryophyllene in its terpene profile, JG has hints of lemon and pine scents. This strain is said to have uplifting, energetic, and happiness-inducing effects. It’s also a reputable source of relief for fibromyalgia and cancer symptoms—although it should be noted that patients prone to anxiety may want to start with a very low dose, on account of its typically high THC content.
“At Redecan, it is our goal to provide our patients with quality medical marijuana that is also affordable. Our products start as low as $5 per gram and can go as high as $8 per gram depending on the strain. Redecan is one of the lowest priced cannabis producers in the industry, while offering superior quality. We are also proud offer universal compassionate pricing for anyone who registers with us.”
Cannabis and the Canadian Market
The cannabis market is quickly becoming a significant part of the Canadian economy, according to the country’s statistics agency. Statistics Canada said Friday that annualized Canadian household spending on cannabis totalled $5.9 billion in the fourth quarter, with the black market still accounting for $4.7 billion of that figure and the legal market estimated at $1.2 billion. Cannabis, both legal and illegal, is now included in the national economic accounts as StatCan released fourth-quarter gross domestic product figures.
StatCan said the average all-in market price paid for legal cannabis flower was $9.70 per gram in the fourth quarter of 2018. That compares to an average price of $6.51 per gram for illegal cannabis, which is 32.9 percent lower than the price of legal pot.
Don’t fear, though, there is plenty of top quality bud at affordable prices.
