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.

Of course, these exorbitant prices are only for a certain sub sect of high-rollers. Don’t fear, though, there is plenty of top quality bud at affordable prices. Here are a few that won’t break the bank.

Wappa

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.

God Bud

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.

Indica vs. sativa: What’s the difference between cannabis types?

Dancehall

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.

What are cannabis terpenes and what do they do?

Jean Guy

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.
