Souvenir Branded High-Quality Cannabis from Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc (OTCMKTS:EMHTF) Now In Québec

Published

on

The cultivation and sale of cannabis are still one of the many booming activities in Canada after the legalization of recreational marijuana in October 2018. In Quebec, the permitted age for buying and possessing cannabis is 21years. This is perhaps what has driven Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc (OTCMKTS:EMHTF) to establish a base in Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc.

Through its subsidiary, Verdélite Sciences has unveiled a new Souvenir Cannabis brand primarily for adult recreational marijuana users. The Souvenir comes in blue and white packaging with Fleur-de-lys and will bring a new experience to the Quebec market.

The Souvenir product line has over 80 years of cannabis growing experience in Québec

‘’The team at Verdélite has poured heart and soul into this launch, perfecting growing methods and bringing the brand concept to life. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the SQDC and providing Québec with great cannabis,” says VP General Manager of Verdélite, Maheep Dhillon.

Verdélite’s commitment has been displayed through the unmistakable quality of the Souvenir craft batches. Every batch of dried flower comes with a competitive price point. The distribution will be done through the Société Québécoise du Cannabis (SQDC) online stores as well as the retail stores. With this determination, SQDC’s 42 operational stores are likely to scale up to 70 stores by the end of the year.

Consumers within the Québec market will first have Chemdog and Grapefruit GG4, being the initial products the company will be launching.

The two, which have high potency THC strains, different aromas, and flavors, will be sold in 3.5g packages plans to introduce other formats and categories underway.

Cutbacks on Canada’s recreational market

Over the years, the Canadian recreational market has been doing so well. However, the legal market is no longer able to attract serious buyers, thanks to the black market, which has remained a strong preference for hundreds of people. They claim the legal product is more expensive and that the government does not reveal what one is buying before.

This has caused major issues to North America’s marijuana companies, which are now at a limbo of whether or not they should open more stores. In addition to this, companies also have to endure strict advertising rules.

Published

on

Zenabis Global Inc (OTCMKTS:ZBISF) spoke about its “best efforts” offering. Unveiled today, the units are part of its grand scheme to thrive in a dynamic business climate.

A close outlook

A lot has been happening; lately, part of that being the striking of a series of agreements with lenders. The company hopes to succeed in its plan to advocate the extension of the due date that it was supposed to pay a debt amounting to $7M. This forms part of the larger debt that had been borrowed in December. It was a figure totaling up to $61M.

Zenabis Global has, over the years, stood out among the rest as one of the best performing and licensed cultivators of recreational and medical marijuana. Asides from this, the business guru has also been focusing on the cultivation of vegetable and floral products.

Plans into the future

To reach its business goals, the company intends to channel some of its funds to employing some new staff members. It will be taking staff members from facilities situated in Atholville, Aldergrove, Langley, and Pitt Meadows.

The company has so far made significant strides forward in terms of business achievements. For instance, it already has about 111,200 kg of its top-notch products only for its leading facilities. It continues to express great determination in line with the production of some top quality licensed cannabis products.

With its cultivation space that adds up to 3.5 million square feet, the business giant hopes to employ the best cultivation practices that will help it rise to become a market leader in a diverse and fast-changing business climate.

Major business moves

If all moves according to plan, the business expresses optimism that it will succeed on its quest to link its Zenabis Langley and Zenabis Stellarton to its Zenabis Atholvlle. This is a move deemed to play a huge role in helping it uphold a steady production in years to come.

The Zenabis brand name is usually applied within the cannabis market. On the other hand, there are terms used for the cannabis adult-use market recreational segment. These names include Blazery, Namaste, and Re-Up.
