What Cannabis Products Should You Choose?
Cannabis can be consumed in many different ways, making the purchasing process confusing and difficult for beginners and daily users alike. How do you know what to buy? What product type and potency are best for you? We understand it can be overwhelming. Before you begin purchasing your cannabis, it is best to determine your intention for your consumption. Are you planning on going to a birthday party? Is it a night to chill out at home? These questions can lead you in the right direction to finding your optimal cannabis choice. After this, several factors determine what cannabis is the optimal choice for you.
Some people prefer to smoke their buds, while others enjoy consuming edibles. Most people believe regular cannabis users have a higher tolerance than non-users, though this may not be the case for you. Potency, cannabinoids & product type are the main factors in deciding. If you are attempting a trial-and-error with different products to find your fit, start low and go slow. If you find yourself lost about what products to purchase, visit a Prairie Cannabis store and ask our budtenders to educate you on our offerings.

Prairie Cannabis budtenders are well educated and take charge of educating consumers about our menu, discounted products, and services.
Popular Choice: Dried Flower
Many consumers favor choosing dried flower as their primary choice for cannabis products - but where do you begin? Depending on your budget and experience with cannabis, you may want to start with rolling papers or a pipe as your consumption accessories. We highly recommend hemp-based papers for a clean burn and smoother smoking experience when purchasing rolling papers. The other accessory options for dried flower are bongs, vaporizers, or using dried flower to create DIY edibles.
Regardless of the consumption method and cannabis accessories you choose, one that is critical for dried flower enthusiasts is a grinder. Grinding your own dry herb can save you money and time. For recommendations on what dry herb grinder is best for you as a Prairie Cannabis budtender. Our budtenders can agree, buying bulk flower is best. At all of our locations you can find ounces for under $100 and discounted premium dried flower.
BC Pink Kush by Flowr has beautiful hints of purple and one of the most popular sold products at Prairie Cannabis. It has a range of 18-26% THC depending on the lot and is an Indica-dominant cultivar.
Are Premade Joints For You?
Pre-rolled joints are pre-filled rolling papers for your convenience. They come in different sizes, shapes, and types, such as packs of 3, 10, or 20. In addition, a new kind of product on the market for more experienced cannabis users are blunts and infused pre-rolls which are not only dried flower but added cannabis extract for higher potency.
Purchasing pre-rolls is a favored option among cannabis users in Canada because they are easy to use and discrete. Prairie Cannabis offers a large selection of CBD, high THC, 1:1, Indica, Sativa, Hybrid, and premium pre-rolled joints.
Treat Yourself with Topicals
Blissed Breath CBD Lotion contains 100mg of CBD and 5mg THC in each container. It is unscented and ingredients include shea butter, CBD distillate, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extract and jojoba oil.
Edibles in Demand
Edibles are another highly favoured cannabis product in Canada, but like many other cannabis products, the wide variety can be overwhelming. Many cannabis consumers choose to purchase edibles because there is no inhalation; they are discrete to use and have various product types. The first things you should consider are the type of edible product you would like and the ingredients list. You may begin with choosing a CBD, THC, or 1:1 product. After settling on what cannabinoid content you want to purchase, you can start looking at other options. At all Prairie Cannabis locations, you can find gummies, chocolates, infused oils, capsules, and beverages. In the case, you are searching for a more health-conscious option like low sugar edibles. Low sugar options include many popular nanoemulsion beverages and edibles like:
Rilaxe’s 10mg THC are Dried Fruit Edibles with a selection of mangos, bananas, cherries and apricots. These unique health conscious products are made with high-quality distillate and organic, locally sourced ingredients.
Bedfellows Indie Pals 10mg THC and 2mg CBD (Ready to Drink) light malt and oat created brew, with a hoppy flavor. House of Terpenes Sparkling Tonic 5:5 THC CBD. A sparkling drink with notes of tangerine, thyme, lemon, and slight hops.
For The Experienced User: Concentrates
Cannabis products in the concentrate category are known for their high potency (50%-99%) and what many call “difficult” hardware applications. Extracts are a perfect category for those interested in engaging more with cannabis. The concentrate comes in two main forms: solvent and solventless based. Meaning some are made with the assistance of compounds like CO2 and butane whereas others extract through pressure and temperature techniques. Each type of concentrate has its own unique forming characteristics and could be easily one of the most complicated cannabis categories. With products ranging from hash to terps sauce, it’s best to do research or speak with your Budtender about where to start.
Here is a list of a few examples of cannabis concentrate types:
- Terp Sauce
- Sugar wax
- Bubble Hash
- Live Resin
- Vaporizer Cartridges
One of the things that makes concentrate consumption more difficult than other categories is choosing what hardware you want and have the budget for. If you want something portable for when you are on the go, a concentrate vaporizer is a great choice. On the other hand, if you are planning on consuming concentrates from home, a glass piece may be best. With either option, you need to be prepared for applying high heat to vaporize the high cannabinoid content extracts have.
RAD's Maui Mango Crumble is a high-quality, terpene-filled concentrate with over 50% THC.
