Many of the online companies are based in BC. BC is said to have the best conditions to grow premium marijuana. Marijuana grown in British Columbia is known to contain up to 30% THC by weight and widely considered to be some of the best in the world. Many LLCs and independent Canadian growers cultivate on Vancouver Island, where temperature and altitude is ideal for many species of cannabis.The early history of cannabis production was centered in hippie communities in the Gulf Islands and Kootenays, in climate conditions perfect for outdoor growing. However, it is believed that much of the cannabis currently sold for export originates from hydroponic grow operations in the Lower Mainland, with significant amounts added by outdoor growers throughout the province. BC bud is the best throughout Canada.
A large amount of the province’s cannabis crop is smuggled across the national border to the United States, up to 95 percent according to some US officials, as “B.C. Bud”‘s value more than doubles in the US. As of 2010 experts estimate that the province exports CA$4–8 billion in cannabis annually, among British Columbia’s largest exports with softwood lumber. Some Americans believe that the provincial government is, as Canadian Geographic reported that year, “quietly tolerant” of the cannabis industry because of its importance to the economy.
