I always assumed that Amsterdam was the undisputed weed capital of the world, but now I’m not so sure.
I was impressed by some of the varieties I sampled during my trip to the Netherlands, but I have honestly had comparable weed in Vancouver and Seattle during my trips out to the Pacific Northwest.
North America to me is the place to find the best cannabis in the world, but we had the advantage of importing genetics from all over the globe for the past sixty years and more. When you trace back the genetics of all the famous cannabis strains, you’ll eventually end up with nothing but landrace strains like Mexican, Hawaiian, Durban Poison, Thai, and Columbian Gold just to name a few. But you don’t have to be in any of these regions any longer to access these varieties of cannabis, nor do you have to know an importer either. While a good portion of cannabis genetics were developed in the United States, we don’t get enough credit here in Canada. British Columbia has been the home of a number of amazing weed strains like BC Bud and Jedi Kush, but you can’t forget Toronto either. My home city has over 200 cannabis dispensaries, and is the origin of marijuana varieties like Afghani Bullrider, which is becoming a popular selection among Ontario weed enthusiasts. While Vancouver is touted as a place to find some of the best on the planet, Toronto is the undisputed weed capital of eastern Canada. I wouldn’t trade living in Toronto for any other city in Canada, even if money wasn’t an issue.
