When cannabis was legalized in Canada, more people began consuming it. And obviously, as our country continues learning to embrace the plant and all its benefits, we are seeing that cannabis culture is about more than just big business.
At this point, for many users, it could also be called a lifestyle.

You are going to want something from the sativa family. Strains in this family tend to enhance focus, too.
