Smoking on a Budget: Top 5 Budget-Friendly Strains

Are you a medical cannabis patient or a die-hard “cannasseur” who smokes a lot of flower?

If so, you’re probably looking to save cash anywhere and anyway you can.

The first thing you should know is that we have a wide variety of daily deals and discounts. Check out our Promotions page to see which discounts you qualify for!

We also offer select cannabis strains that are both gentle on your wallet and highly effective for medical and recreational purposes.

So if you’re smoking on a budget, here are our top five budget-friendly strains!

(All the strains listed below start at just $11 per gram except for Kosher Kush, which starts at $12).


1. Cactus Jack (Sativa)

In addition to having a dope-sounding name, Cactus Jack (sounds like a gambler or gunslinger, right?) is an ideal strain for budget-conscious consumers who are already fans of the sativa strain Jack Herer.

Users can expect Jack Herer-type effects like increased creativity, motivation, and cerebral euphoria.

But Cactus Jack will also relax the body, putting you into a lazy state of mind without fully knocking you out. Can be used to treat pain, anxiety, depression, migraines, and mood swings.

2. 818 Headband (Hybrid)

Also known as Sour OG, 818 Headband is a 50/50 hybrid cross between Sour Diesel and OG Kush. It’s a fan favorite among hybrid users because of its evenly balanced effects – an energized cerebral euphoria alongside body-relaxing sedation.

One hit may be all you need to get the desired effects, but at just $11 a gram, you can stock up just in case.

3. Connor’s Comfort (1:1 THC-CBD)

CBD is all the rage these days, and for those of you who need a bit more cannabidiol in your flower, Connor’s Comfort is the obvious choice.

With a 1:1 THC-CBD ratio, plus the beneficial terpenes terpinolene and myrcene, this strain is bound to keep you calm, relaxed, and pain-free.

4. Neon Night (Indica)

We don’t know if Las Vegas has a quintessential cannabis strain, but Neon Night definitely deserves a nomination (we’ve written about it before here). This one’s a heavy indica that relaxes the head first and comes for the body later. Great for those who’ve had enough of Vegas for one night and are ready to chill out and sleep easy.

5. Kosher Kush (Indica)

A proud relative of OG Kush, Kosher Kush took home the Cannabis Cup Best Indica Prize in 2010 and 2011, not to mention Best Strain in 2011. With some samples testing as high as 29% THC, this heavy indica, noted for its powerful ability to relieve pain and promote relaxation, is an awesome deal!
