More than 150 new products will become available through the Ontario Cannabis Store and selected retailers later this month, the OCS has announced.
The offerings include new dried flower, extracts and pre-roll releases, but also some limited edition products that are new to the market. Here are a few of the highlights.
Thunder Bay-based hot sauce purveyor, Heartbeat Hot Sauce, has teamed up with edible producer Bogart’s Kitchen, a brand from Aleafia Health, to launch a small batch of THC-infused hot sauce. Each bottle of Pineapple Haberno Hot Sauce contains 10 mg of THC and gives foods “a hit of sweet and spice with bright, balanced heat.”
UP, a cannabis brand from Quebec-based Hexo, is launching the first golden paper pre-roll on the market. The limited-edition release contains one gram of 24K Gold, a cross between Kosher Kush and Tangie. The indica-dominant strain is wrapped in 24-karat gold paper and contains at least 20 per cent THC.
Ontario-based Axea, a privately owned cannabis company, has already gone to market with some unique products, such as Himalayan bath salts blended with CBD. Now the company is releasing sandalwood-scented beard oil, infused with 300 mg of CBD per bottle. The oil also contains Jojoba and argan oil to nourish hair and moisturize skin.
The latest product from Vancouver-based Rilaxe, a women-led legacy brand, is organic dried mango infused with THC. The soft chews are made from mangoes sourced from Mexico and infused with distillate created in B.C. Each piece contains 10 mg of THC.
Sev7n is Canada’s first 100 per cent, Indigenous-owned and operated licensed producer. The company is based in the Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne, a territory that straddles the U.S. and Canada border and the Ontario and Quebec borders along the St. Lawrence River. The hybrid 510 thread cart “has a loud flavour profile, full of sweet cherries with floral undertones.”
A portion of proceeds from the sales of Sev7n products goes to the Strong Roots North Charitable Foundation, which empowers and enriches the lives of First Nations youth and elders from the Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne.
