This La Strada strain that’s made by the Edison Cannabis Co. is close to perfect. My expectations were pretty high for $32.30 CAD for 3.5 grams, and I did not get disappointed whatsoever. This strain has about 18% THC and almost no CBD, and it’s main terpene is caryophyllene, although by the colors and the smell, humulene is definitely present. It’s sativa dominant and originally comes from the acadia strain. There’s really nothing bad to say about this, there’s a more detailed breakdown below.

The buds on this La Strada strain look absolutely beautiful. They are just the perfect amount of damp, and there was zero small buds. They were of a really nice light green color, completely covered in crystals with light orange hairs in between all the buds, they were also perfectly trimmed. It was such a delight bidding this weed up with my fingers, because I started to get used to all the super dry nugs I’ve been trying out lately. The Edison Cannabis Co. and Organigram did an excellent job with the look of this weed.
What a refreshing aroma! The smell of this weed is very sweet, it smells like flowers with a touch of citrus and cinnamon. It’s also not subtle at all, but it’s so pleasant. The terpenes emit such wonderful and unique aromas, I was very impressed.
As I mentioned, it’s hard to pick out something that I didn’t like on this La Strada strain, that includes the taste and the smoke. Such a fruity and sweet taste, both the caryophyllene and the humulene are very present. The smoke was super smooth, and it burned perfectly. You can really tell the difference in the smoking experience with how dry/damp the nugs are, and they were really perfect this time. I found the taste very unique, and it really stood out compared to other strain that I’ve tried.
Here we go, my first perfect score. What a great high, it was definitely a sativa dominant strain, I had a lot of energy and I was completely functional. I was actually ready to work, and as you may know, it’s my favorite type of high. I wasn’t glued to the couch whatsoever, I felt very stimulated and motivated to do something productive, not “waste the high” on just watching some netflix, if that makes any sense. Also, there was absolutely no downer, I went from being very high to completely sober, seamless transition.
I would recommend this strain to everybody, beginners and every day smokers alike. However, for beginners, the high will hit you like a slap in the face, just saying! But it’s a nice slap, like a very soothing hug-type of slap. (Yeah…I smoked some more La Strada right before writing this, sorry about that). I would recommend smoking this before doing something creative, or while hanging out with some friends and doing something fun, not before bed though, you’ll have too much energy. Although the price may be a little steep, it really felt like the perfect weed.
