It’s coming. Legislation that will legalize recreational marijuana is a year away, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tells us. Medical marijuana has been legal since 2001. Plans for large-scale legal grows are in the works for Powell River. And let’s get real: it’s likely been Powell River’s biggest agricultural crop for 40 years.

Here, Dan Clarke, the director of the city’s first medical marijuana dispensary, Grassroots Botanicals Wellness Cooperative, presents three of the top Powell River-grown strains. cannabis

Bubba Pink Kush

By far our most popular and powerful strain, Bubba is almost pure indica best for experienced consumers. Large dense flowers with distinctive purple hues, and an earthy sweet aroma. Good for pain relief, appetite stimulation, insomnia and stress relief. Due to its potency, it is recommended that this strain be enjoyed in the evening, after the work of the day is over.

Moby Dick

This strain is 70 per cent sativa, so it is very awake and energetic, good for people who want something during the day, but want to avoid the burnout that often results.

With large dense flowers and a pleasant fruity aroma, Moby Dick gives a very cerebral experience that is good for controlling ADHD, anxiety, headache and migraine relief, PTSD and nausea. A great strain for biking, hiking, kayaking or just working around the yard. Not as effective for appetite stimulation or insomnia..

Mango Haze

This distinctive strain contains an equal amount of THC, the main psychoactive cannabinoid, and CBD, a cannabinoid that is not psychoactive, but has many beneficial medical qualities. CBD is an anti-spasmostic, a very effective anti-inflammatory, an anti-anxiety, and has some analgesic (pain relieving) properties.

THC is a muscle relaxant, and analgesic, so these two cannabinoids together are very effective at relieving the symptoms of a wide variety of conditions, notably arthritis, Parkinsonโ€™s, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, or pain caused by inflammation, such as spinal stenosis, or old injuries. We have had this strain extracted into a variety of different forms, such as edible gel caps or sublingual infusions to provide the greatest variety of use.

This is a great strain for people that are not regular consumers of cannabis, because the psychoactive properties are very mild, and the anti-anxiety properties provide a very relaxing experience. Very aptly named, Mango Haze has red hued flowers with a scent and flavour of mangoes.
