Animal Mints by Back Forty
Animal Mints is a popular choice for indica lovers! It is a cross between the strains Animal Cookies and SinMint Cookies. The Animal Mints strain is rather strong – at 22% THC – and it can reach even higher potencies of up to 25%. It is always grown with organic practices in an advanced hybrid greenhouse.

Wedding Pie by Back Forty
Another great indica choice is Wedding Pie, also by Back Forty. This popular strain is a cross between Wedding Cake and Grape Pie. The Wedding Pie strain can reach very high potencies, up to 26% THC, and is grown with organic practices. These vibrant green buds have a flair of purple. The top terpenes are trans-caryophyllene, linalool, farnesene, limonene and alpha-bisabolol. Wedding Pie is terpene-rich. with almost three per cent total terpene content. It is flavourful and unique, with a spicy, cracked pepper profile. Back Forty’s Wedding Pie is available as pre-rolls, or dried flower. (The pre-rolls go by the name Forty’s Wedding Pie). The first impression is, this is some strong weed, giving a chill, relaxed and happy buzz! Famous among TOKE staff for being an amazing strain, it delivers.
Animal Mints and Wedding Pie are some great organic cannabis products. So what is the story of Back Forty? What does “Back Forty” even mean? According to Brad Canario, Brand Director at Back Forty, “Back Forty refers to the most remote part of a farm, the place where I imagine a farmer would go to get away from the day-to-day and connect with the peace and quiet of nature.” He adds, “We’re thrilled to introduce this brand, designed for savvy cannabis consumers looking for an uncomplicated, high-quality product at an affordable price. Take a trip in the Back Forty!”
White Rhino by Pure Sunfarms
White Rhino by Pure Sunfarms is a truly lovely indica, with a beautiful and nostalgic White Widow flavour. It is truly a pleasure to smoke it! It punches in at 18% THC. Pure Sunfarms’ White Rhino is a classic BC bud strain, cultivated on the Gulf Islands before it became popular across Canada. An “indica-dominant child of White Widow,” it is both potent and extremely flavourful. White Rhino has the fruity aromas of blueberries and mangos (myrcene), green grapes (alpha-pinene), and Thai basil (caryophyllene).
Who are Pure Sunfarms? To put it simply, former tomato farmers who transformed their million square foot grow site into a state-of-the-art cannabis greenhouse three years ago. Although they are relative newcomers to the world of cannabis, they draw on the expertise of long time cannabis growers in their operations: “when it came time to build our team, we made sure to include both experienced greenhouse cultivators and long-time underground growers from British Columbia’s cannabis community––the same people who made “BC bud” a worldwide stamp of quality.” White Rhino has long been a popular strain in Ontario, with a legacy going back to the pre-legalization period.
Island Cherry by Seven Leaf
Seven Leaf’s Island Cherry is an indica-dominant hybrid with strong cannabinoid and terpene levels. It packs a powerful punch at 22-28% THC. The lead terpenes are Beta-Caryophyllene, Limonene, Linalool and Myrcene. The aroma has a distinctive sweet cherry note. Upon smoking, the flavour is unique and unexpected.
Did you know that buying Seven Leaf’s Island Cherry is a great way to support an Indigenous licensed producer? Seven Leaf is the first 100% Indigenous owned and operated cannabis producer licensed by Health Canada on First Nation territory. Seven Leaf is proud to use traditions a thousand generations in the making to create something new and different. In 2018, Seven Leaf launched their state of the art cannabis production facility on Akwesasne Mohawk land. Akwesasne (Land Where the Partridge Drums) is situated on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, on Cornwall Island, just off the coast from Cornwall Ontario.
At Seven Leaf, growers draw on the rich Mohawk history of living in harmony with the land and its natural resources. Traditionally, Akwesasne Mohawk people were hunters, fishermen, and farmers, and they continue to have a unique and long relationship with Mother Earth and everything that grows from her. In their cannabis production, they strive to employ the lessons learned over centuries of growing the traditional crops – corn, beans and squash (“the Three Sisters”) – in a manner that is environmentally sustainable, and which keeps soil rich in nutrients.
Gorilla Berry by Green Seal
Gorilla Berry is another good choice for an indica-dominant hybrid strain. It is another strong one, with a potency reaching 22-28% THC. It combines the fruity flavours of blueberry and citrus, and it has a nice terpene mix of pinene, caryophyllene, and myrcene, resulting in an earthy and spicy flavour. Green Seal is based in Stratford, Ontario. Their claim to fame is their innovative, high intensity lighting used in their growth techniques. Green Seal are data driven and scientific in their quest for the highest THC and highest terpene content. Gorilla Berry is a good budget choice, for a high THC product with an enjoyable flavour.
BC God Bud by Verse Originals
This roundup closes on a high note with one of my personal favourites: BC God Bud by Verse Originals. God Bud is a solid indica-dominant strain perfect for meditating or relaxing outdoors, and communing with nature. Its ratio is 60% indica and 40% sativa; it is both relaxing and uplifting. BC God Bud pairs perfectly with a nice, cold beer. God Bud had an excellent flavour: earthy, piney and skunky. The principal terpenes are caryophyllene, bisabolol, and humulene, and the potency is 18-19% THC. God Bud is a truly a bud of outstanding value – under $100 for 28 grams!
