The Best Cannabis Brands In California

We’ve gathered the best cannabis brands here in California for you to enjoy. And as Cali, there’s space for all kinds of taste. 

Some people call California the green state due to its evergreen (no pun intended) and ever-growing cannabis space. 

Every day it seems there’s a new brand, cannabinoids, smoking devices or glassware, or even drinks and seltzers. If finding a good, California-based brand has become difficult with the growing market, you might find yourself confused.

Well, fret no more. We’ve gathered the best cannabis brands here in California for you to enjoy. And as Cali, there’s space for all kinds of taste. 

Whether you are more into boutique-style high-end products, super-potent products for the most exquisite Cannaseur, to the simple and abundant, classic type of weed.

No matter what kind of stoner you are or products you like, we are sure you’ll find at least one brand that appeals to you in the following list.

Without further ado, let’s check some of these brands out.

Stiiizy

Let’s talk about Stiiizy. They are a California-based, innovative company that has been around since 2017. Award-winning, creative, and with amazing products, they are pioneers in the vaping business long before it got trendy.

Stiiizy was one of the first brands to hop on the new pod technology bandwagon, bringing cannabis-infused oils and distillates to the public in a very accessible option.

Today they have an impressive collection of products to offer the public, that not only look good but feel as potent as they look. Their disposable vapes, prerolled jays, edibles, and even the newest LIIIT line with indoor premium flowers, are all incredible experiences that will even satisfy the biggest Cannaseur.

If you are big into top-shelf experiences, Stiiizy just created a specific line of vaping that focuses on live resin and rosin made with creme de la creme indoor flower.

All of their products are made in state-of-the-art laboratories, handcrafted, and handpicked. So rest assured that each of their wares will be of the uppermost quality.

Stiiizy is one of those brands that prove over and over that they are the trendsetters in the cannabis space. They have kept innovating their products with different lines, cannabinoids, or even creating products that set the newest THC trend. So if you want to try a quality, I’d always recommend Stiiizy as your first choice.

Circles

Circles is a fairly new brand (started in 2020), that has a clear mission in its mind: provide incredibly potent highs with high-quality flowers, at an affordable price. Their motto is to “expand your circle”, making their products easy to share and have a talk while enjoying a smoke.

They currently have dozens of strains available, in their different varieties from indica, sativa, hybrid. This brand is available exclusively through Eaze, where you can grab their flower, carts, and their newly created cannabis-infused gummy line.

You can get their vape cartridges in several flavors, and you can try them in half-gram or full-gram presentations. All of their lines of flower and carts (Circles, Eclipse, and Galaxy) are pretty potent and created with the heavy-user in mind, 

Colorful, potent, and innovative, Circles has many strains and flavors to choose from. Their Pink Lemonade Gummies are not only delicious but packed with 5mg of high-quality hybrid THC with each gummy. And their cartridges vary from 70% THC up to 92%, so you can choose what kind of experience you wish to share with your circle.

Flow Kana

We love what Flow Kana stands for. First of all, they are one of the first sustainable sun-grown cannabis brands. They are a family-run, small-batch, independent farm brand that empowers craft farmers in Northern California. 

They are passionate about their sustainable cannabis supply chain, with small farmer platforms that allow them to tell their story, distribute products statewide, and let them create value while keeping local. 

Products-wise, all of their catalog is grown in small batches. They have Farmer’s Reserve, which has the highest grade of craft cannabis with >21% THC content. This line is full-bodied, with great flavor and aroma, and is hand-trimmed and picked.

They also have the Flow Kana Gold and Silver Flower lines. Both lines are also part of the selection of cultivars from their independent farms. The Gold Flower line contains >18% THC, while the Silver Flower Jars contain >16% THC content.

Flow Kana also offer Prerolls, packed with sun-grown, craft cannabis. They offer these in different strains and sizes, with both 1g and 0.5g jay available. Also if infused blunts pique your interest, they offer them with live resin extracts from their sister brand, Caldera.

Jetty Extracts

Since 2013, Jetty Extracts has been around creating top-shelf extracts. As they state on their website, they’ve innovated the cannabis space by figuring out how to remove harmful additives from their vapes.

They’ve expanded from the growing to the extraction and distribution of cannabis, committing to really bring out perfectly crafted cannabis products, all from California.

And they mean this with their impressive array of products and extracts. The first line to highlight is their Jetty Solventless Vape, as they craft them with live rosin that’s extracted using only ice, water, heat, and pressure. You can get their premium solventless line in both 510 carts or PAX Era Pods in both 1g and 0.5g.

Their Unrefined Live Resin is also pretty much a treasure. So you can get them either in a Dab Applicator, Badder Concentrate, or even try it in their infused prerolls.

Besides their extracts line, they also carry the HIGH THC line which has an incredible combination of flavors and course, high potency. These come in 510 carts only, with flavors and strains like Pink Lemonade, King Louis, Northern Lights #5, and many more. And PS, you’ll want to keep their packaging as it’s beyond beautiful.

LEUNE

LEUNE is a one-of-a-kind sort of cannabis company. Besides offering premium, boutique-style cannabis products, they’ve created a concept called the “LEUNE-iverse”. With this, they want to elevate the cannabis culture by designing experiences based on imagery and type of flower.

The LEUNE-iverse consists of 7 different kinds of cannabis strains and flowers, that are all available in 510 vape carts, PAX Era Pods, disposable vaping devices, flowers, Pre-Rolls, and edibles. 

For example, The Desert Gold strain has a gold motif in all of its packaging, carrying tropical notes in this sativa-leaning hybrid. It has notes of mango and peach, and it is available in all of its presentations.

Their newest addition to their edibles line are the Gem Drops, delicious cannabis-infused candy that will dissolve your worries away. They are available in Cloud Berry, Desert Gold, and Sol Berry. If you want to check some of the other strains they have available, you can check them out here.

The folks at Raw Garden are proud of their sustainable agricultural model that takes advantage of technological advances in row crop farming. With this, they’ve grown, cultivated high-quality products from Santa Barbara County.

With this, their motto “Your Single Source™” means they organize, breed, cultivate, harvest, extract, package, and even deliver their top-shelf quality products.

Currently, they specialize in extracts, mainly Live Resin in THC Carts, Pens, PAX Pods, and their innovation to the cannabis space, their Refined Live Resin Diamonds.

Their Live Sauce and Live Resin are top shelf on their own and available in carts, pens, pods, and even raw for dabbing devices or glassware.

But what really stands out from Raw Garden is their Refined Live Resin. This is a new cannabis product that removes impurities like waxes, fats, tannins, and other chemicals from Live Resin to create a single source high-quality product. 

That means stronger highs, smooth smoke, and no added chemicals, materials, pesticides, or anything of the sort.

Lost Farm are gummies and chews that are more in the heavy-user-side of the cannabis space. These gummies are infused with 100% live resin of full-spectrum with over 10mg of high-quality THC.

Kiva also has its iconic chocolate bars, delicious and decadent. These are made from high. quality cacao and cannabis, and also have a Live Resin line with Lost Farm and a bite-size sibling with Terra. The full bars have 100mg of THC, while the Terra Bite has about 5mg each. 

Last but not least, Petra is the mint line from Kiva. These high portable, subtle-yet-flavorful candies were designed for microdosing. They are available in Tart Cherry and Wondermint, and they pack 2.5mg of THC only.

Get a blast from the past with a renovated look from Old Pal. Their motto is to create accessible, affordable, and abundant cannabis products that are also shareable. Their vision is simple, and as they state on their website: It’s just weed, man.

All of their flowers are all-natural, sun-kissed, and rain-watered. They only carry three simple varieties, indica, sativa, and hybrid. So if you are feeling nostalgic or want something classic, Old Pal is your way to go.

Cannabiotix has over 20 years of experience in the cannabis industry. They come and transform themselves from the underground cannabis scene to the breeding awards and innovation of the modern era.

They currently carry premium flowers, prerolls, live resin concentrates, solventless live resin, and 100% sauce 510 cartridges. One of the highlights is the impressive array of strains and flowers they have available, from popular strains like White Walker OG to their in-house special Kush Mountains.
