Best Tasting Cannabis Strains of 2021

When consuming cannabis, always remember this fact: THC is a hallucinogenic compound. That’s fancy-pants science speak to explain away its psycho-active effects.

But what does psycho-active actually mean, you might ask? Really, it’s just another way to say that a substance alters your perceptions, emotions, and cognition too.

But wait…what’s cognition, you might be wondering?

Well, let’s chill out on the botany and psychology lessons for a few minutes and break it down to the bottom line.

THC creates subjective experiences – period!

Even if you and a friend (or 10) were to consume the exact same amount at the exact same pace and THC concentration, you’d have different bodily sensations, especially taste. It doesn’t matter whether you’re consuming edibles or going the traditional route.

Now, for those new to cannabis and THC, take note of this fact: it doesn’t make you see pink elephants and psychedelic kaleidoscopes in the sky.

Cannabis is much more subtle, especially when it comes to the taste of the buds.

Let’s start with a short introduction to the taste of cannabis then go on to the coup de grace: the top 5 best tasting strains of 2021!

How can cannabis have a pleasant taste? It’s a plant…

The general rule of thumb, according to the culinary world, is that humans β€œtaste” with our noses and our eyes too. If that doesn’t make sense, it’s not the spliff or bowl you’re holding in your hand right now that’s confusing you; it’s a counter-intuitive phenomenon.

Our senses are part of a symphony of perception, and it’s a little known fact that one sense can significantly affect the others.

Nothing is more terrible about catching the flu than the loss of taste due to nasal congestion. Now, think about how that might tie into cannabis consumption.

If you smoke it, your nasal senses will fire on all cylinders. That’s key to the perception of aromas.

It may look like a corny compulsion at a glance, but there’s a reason why seasoned cannabis connoisseurs always sniff their buds before ingesting them.

Our sense of smell primes our taste buds like no other, so your mind can make heads or tails of what you just took into your body.

A pro tip: if your cannabis tastes β€œplanty,” it’s poorly cured and shouldn’t be consumed – unless you can withstand the headaches. At Bud Dash, we always cure our products to perfection!

With that in mind and without further ado, here are the best tasting cannabis strains of 2021 you can find at a Canadian dispensary nowadays.

1. OG Kush

First of all, if you’ve never tried any OG strains, you’re missing out. It’s the classic marijuana taste and scent you might recognize: floral and potent with hints of gasoline.

But just wait until you consume it! The flavor profile will blow you away, but honestly, if you’re new to cannabis, don’t take in too much OG Kush unless you’re trying to take a trip to the dreamworld.

2. Cheese

You get one guess what the primary aroma is for this strain. Indeed, cannabis buds can have a cheesy, semi-spicy sort of aroma and taste, but it’s not so pronounced unless you consume a fair amount in one session.

Cheese is a uniquely pungent strain that is mistakable for experienced smokers, similar to Skunk varieties. Though not as aromatic as OG Kush, Cheese strains are unique to say the least.

3. Wedding Cake

Those new to the cannabis community might not know that certain strains can have a fruity, sugary taste.

Remember our little primer about how our sense of smell affects the sense of taste? Wedding cake is the perfect example, it’s and a good place to start for newcomers trying to pinpoint their favorite flavors.

While not as fruity as hybrid strains like Sweet Tooth and Girl Scout Cookies, Wedding Cake is definitely in the top three.

  • Hybrid

    Bud Dash Original

    ReCon (AAA)

    $60$100
    The ReCon is a perfect blend of two parts LA Confidential and one part Cannadential. The Cannadential father was chosen for its Indica traits and at times, the ReCon seems stronger than even the LA Confidential. There is plenty of magic in this cross for sure!

4. ReCon

Those new to the cannabis community might not know that certain strains can have a fruity, sugary taste.

Remember our little primer about how our sense of smell affects the sense of taste? Wedding cake is the perfect example, it’s and a good place to start for newcomers trying to pinpoint their favorite flavors.

While not as fruity as hybrid strains like Sweet Tooth and Girl Scout Cookies, Wedding Cake is definitely in the top three.

5. Purple Sunset

Just saying the name makes our mouths water a little bit. Purple Sunset is a clever play on the usual tastes you detect in Haze hybrids. Specifically, this strain came from a cross between Purple Punch and Mandarin Sunset.

If you still have some OG Kush left over, compare that with Purple Sunset and note the similarities, not necessarily the differences. Purple Punch is a popular cross between Larry OG (another Kush) and Granddaddy Purp (yet another Kush).
