From THC BioMed

THC BIOMED BRAND STORY 

A recipient of a rare exemption research 56 license, THC BioMed is one of the pioneers to research and study cannabis since its founding in 2012 by John Miller. Through years of experience, THC BioMed’s team of experts has perfected the art of cultivating only the highest quality cannabis grown indoors in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia. THC BioMed passionately grows its strains organically, with the purest of nutrients and without the use of pesticides or other exogenous chemicals. 

We are not just Canada’s oldest licensed producer. We offer a wide variety of medicinal genetics of dried flowers and innovative edible options. Today, our products are accessible to all medical patients around Canada via our web store, and we are present in dispensaries in five Canadian provinces (BC, ON, SK, YT, and MB). THC Biomed is traded on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker, THC (CNSX: THC).

Our focus is to offer customers the highest quality cannabis at a price that is affordable for everyone.

CULTIVATION

Unlike many LPs, THC BioMed cultivates its flowers in small batches, so everything is closely monitored. Growing in such a highly controlled environment gives the company unparalleled power to regulate all aspects of the growing cycle. The plants are only grown indoors in small rooms with the desired light, temperature, and humidity. Each plant is hand watered. There are absolutely no pesticides, and critters are kept away by physical means and tightly sealed rooms. Every lot is subject to Health Canada’s standardized testing requirements.

The process is mainly done by hand, from cannabis harvesting to live flower trimming. The product is laid to dry on trays and further trimmed by hand. After drying, the flower is cured for several weeks before final inspection, testing, and then packaging. 

THC BioMed’s Landrace strains are proprietary strains with genetics that originated from Africa. For consistency, the plant environment is replicated like its origin to achieve the same growth and development as its original natural habitat.

THC BioMed created its unique strain of Landraces by taking two landrace strains (both sourced from each strain, where they have carefully selected the best performing batch in terms of effectiveness and consistency in results) and creating a hybrid strain. The new strain is then introduced to environments that resemble that of both parents as closely as possible. After being subjected to this environment through several generations, THC BioMed created a hybrid landrace. With this method, our hybrid Landraces have a long-lasting and uplifting effect compared with the rest.

From THC Kiss

THC KISS BRAND STORY 

THC Kiss is the edibles product line of THC BioMed. When it launched the innovative THC Kiss Beverage Shot in 2018, it became a bestseller among THC BioMed medical clients. So in Q4 of 2020, THC BioMed introduced its edibles product line to the recreational market, THC Kiss, because legend tells that its effects can transfer through a kiss! 

All THC Kiss products are full-spectrum, made with THC Sativa Landrace extraction, and come with a total of 10mg THC. What makes THC Kiss great is it contains just as much THC as higher-priced edibles, and there is absolutely no bitter after-taste! The full effects (body and mind) of THC Kiss can act as quickly as ten minutes from consumption. 

Today, the THC Kiss product line consists of THC Kiss Guava and Mango beverage shots, THC Kiss Strawberry and Orange Gummies, and THC Kiss Cocoa, Shortbread, and Cinnamon Biscuits. The THC KISS beverage and gummies are free of gluten, nuts, and alcohol, while the biscuits are free of nuts and alcohol. 

We believe edible cannabis should be a pleasant and satisfying experience, so we’re working continuously on expanding THC Kiss with more flavors and products, all at affordable price points!

EXTRACTION

THC BioMed uses a unique proprietary extraction method that allows the products to remain full spectrum. The terpenes are from cannabis, so there are no extra terpenes added.

THC BIOMED BRAND STORY 

THC BioMed’s unique selling point is it offers the best possible products for the lowest possible price.

From Papa's Herb

The Story of Papa

The story goes like this. It’s 1985. Papa was the king of Miami… Strolling around town wearing his white suit, mesh loafers, and dark shades, chatting up all the ladies. Papa knew everybody and everybody knew Papa. He was the kind of guy you couldn’t help but like – a big personality with a big heart. Papa always remembered your name.

So here’s to Papa.

He’s always sharing the good times.

Fleurish Cannabis is Growing!

How well do you know your Fleurish products?

Cannametrics is proud to have Fleurish Cannabis and Growtown Cannabis products on the platform!

Fleurish Cannabis shares comprehensive batch-level product information and digital assets with you on Producer Connect for it’s Fleurish brand, and now it’s all new Growtown lineup!

Check out their products on the Products page or send them a message from the Messages page to connect with them directly.

Fleurish is proud to be a Craft Grower here in Eastern Ontario, growing exceptional strains cultivated for everyone, but targeted towards women. You have known and loved their products across Canada for over a year now, and today we are excited to announce the next evolution of Fleurish’s offering under a new brand – Growtown!

From Growtown Cannabis

Unique Products

Growtown is Fleurish’s new and unique brand, launching with a focus on finding, curating, and celebrating extraordinary, rare, and of course, quality cannabis products. Unlike Fleurish, as we are not strictly the grower of our products, we feel that the products we have found deserve to be in your stores and in front of your customers. Small micro growers with a ton of passion, but not necessarily the scale, unique cultivars brand new to Canada that can’t launch on their own, and more are what we are excited to bring you. On top of that, we have some truly impressive craft processing for those new and unique extract products that we are looking forward to building into 2022.

We are incredibly excited to launch with a seller favourite – a clear and straightforward ultra-high THC (30%+) indica flower from a local grower here in Ontario. Following on this product’s heels will be a pure CBG flower in our “highly unique” category and a pure CBD flower grown and cared for by the most industrious one-person show we have ever seen!

Community Driven

We recognize that not all cannabis products are created equally. That is why we are committed to bringing a wide array of quality cannabis products to all provinces. Starting with Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan, and Ontario in the Spring, we will be looking to bring these products to the rest of the provinces in 2022!

The other part of a community-driven business is then listening and implementing your feedback. We listened and implemented small case sizes with Fleurish and are keeping to that with Growtown. We heard Saskatchewan wanted specific pack sizes for our pre-rolls, and we are sticking to it. We heard Manitoba wanted new dried formats, and even though you fine folks are the only people in Canada who order it, we’re doing it! 

What works in Edmonton, Alberta, isn’t always what Nipawin, Saskatchewan, is looking for. Especially when it comes to unique offerings like whole flower CBG (and pre-rolls), finding the correct formats for your local community is key to both of our successes. We are committed to offering you the best selection upfront and then listening and acting on your feedback wherever possible to deliver the perfect product to your customers.

Evolving Opportunities

Our goal is to bring new products, new insights, and new ideas with the Growtown brand. We will work hard to sift through the latest and upcoming research on the major and minor cannabinoids, new products, and trends, and then simplify it down to a level your budtenders and customers can quickly grasp. Evolving information also means changing products. We are very excited to try some (under the cap for now!) new products out so that when we try launching something the market has never seen, you can be confident that your customers are getting what they paid for.

Research like this won’t be an overnight process, but we are committed to being more than just another brand of weed.

Cannametrics Gains Another Amazing LP! Welcome, Laurentian Organic Inc. & Tremblant Cannabis!

We are pleased to announce that Laurentian Organic Inc. and Tremblant Cannabis are now sharing comprehensive batch-level product information and digital assets with you on Producer Connect.

Check out their products on the Products page or send them a message from the Messages page to connect with them directly.

From Laurentian Organic Inc.

For decades, cannabis has been part of the lives of many. In 2018, we witnessed the legalization of this plant and in April 2020 we officially embarked on this adventure.

Becoming one of the first licensed producers in Quebec is a source of great pride for us since Laurentian Organic Inc was born from the desire to share Quebec cannabis know-how. Our team of experts had the ambition to create unique products that stood out.

We do this by adopting innovative cultivation methods and setting the highest quality standards in the industry.

Our Process:

Greenhouse Grown
Our plants benefit from the sun’s rays in our hybrid greenhouse. Not only does this allow us to save energy, it also complexifies the chemical composition of the plant.

Organic
We cultivate according to organic methods without synthetic additives.

Hang Dried
Once our flowers are harvested, we hang-dry them. This allows us to preserve the integrity of the flower and its trichomes.

Curing
This step is the secret ingredient for a flawless experience every time. Curing the flowers over two weeks enhances the aromas and softens the mouth-feel.

Hand Trimmed
Hand-trimmed is a more precise way of working the flower and it keeps the trichomes intact. We handle each flower with care to ensure a perfect presentation.

Check out Laurentian Organic Inc. on the following platforms

From Tremblant Cannabis

For Folks Who Like it Old School

Tremblant Cannabis is for the cannabis enthusiast who wants an accessible product that offers a high experience/price ratio.

The innovative approach of the brand ensures a constant roaster of the market’s most wanted products, whether it’s flower or concentrates.

Our hashish was created with a very specific result in mind. We wanted to recreate the classic taste and feel of hashish: smooth, spicy & soft.

Inspired by the afghan methods, we combined tradition and science to create a modern version of hashish. Our products are specially designed for connoisseurs who seek an authentic experience, like back in the days.

2. Each plant receives daily individual care including hand watering ensuring optimal growth throughout its life cycle. We do not use pesticides, instead, we use beneficial insects.

3. Plants are harvested at their peak then hang dried in a dry, cool environment to preserve trichomes responsible for cannabinoid & terpene production. Cured to maximize taste & mellow out the smoke.

4. We hand trim with attention to detail for manicured bud that looks as good as it burns.

5. We test from the top to the bottom of the plant, ensuring our COAs (Certificate of Analysis) match the product in every jar.

6. Our flower is hand packaged in reusable glass containers designed to preserve freshness & quality. Our pre-rolls are whole flower- no leafy trim, no stemmy shake.

Cannabis Terpenes 101: Secondary Terpenes

Understanding terpene basics and why they matter​

Terpenes are aromatic molecules that give cannabis and other plants their distinct aromas. In our previous post, we got acquainted with dominant cannabis terpenes.

This time around, we’re focusing on secondary cannabis terpenes, which are typically present in much smaller concentrations. While they might not be as important as their dominant cousins, secondary terpenes still contribute to the flavors and effects of cannabis.

Strains Rich In Secondary Terpenes

Although all cannabis strains contain them, secondary terpenes rarely break into the top three terpenes by concentration. For example, linalool is the third most abundant terpene in only a handful of strains, including Do-Si-Dos, Scooby Snacks, and Zkittlez, making these strains rather unique. 

Here’s a closer look at the ten most notable secondary cannabis terpenes: carene, camphene, caryophyllene oxide, fenchol, humulene, linalool, phellandrene, beta-pinene, terpinene, and terpineol.

Carene

Also known as delta-3 carene, this terpene has a sweet smell reminiscent of turpentine. Aside from cannabis, it’s also found in pine trees, rosemary, and other plants.Studies have shown that carene has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties 1 and may support bone health.2 It’s also been shown to promote sleep by interacting with GABA receptors in the brain.3

Camphene​

Camphene is another terpene common in conifer and camphor trees, as well as valerian, nutmeg, and other plants.

It has a cooling, piney, camphor-like odor with hints of citrus. Early research suggests that it may be able to lower cholesterol and triglycerides4 and help with inflammation and pain.5

Caryophyllene Oxide​

Caryophyllene oxide is a different form of beta-caryophyllene, one of the dominant terpenes in cannabis. It’s found in the same kinds of plants, such as basil, cloves, and pepper, and has a woody scent.

Caryophyllene oxide has similar effects to regular caryophyllene, including pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, and antiviral properties.6

Fenchol

Also known as fenchyl alcohol, fenchol is common in basil and aster flowers. It has camphor and lemon-like flavor and may have pain-relieving qualities.7

Humulene

Humulene has an earthy, woody, and spicy scent and is common in hops. It hasn’t seen much research aside from studies highlighting its anti-inflammatory properties.8

Linalool

One of the most recognized secondary terpenes in cannabis, linalool has a floral odor and is also found in lavender and coriander.

It’s been shown to have many beneficial properties, including sedative, anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing), antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antimicrobial, neuroprotective, antidiabetic, and pain-relieving effects.9, 10

Phellandrene

Phellandrene is an under-researched terpene that’s found in eucalyptus plants and has a complex flavor with hints of mint, citrus, pepper, spice, and wood. It may have antidepressant and antihyperalgesic (reduced sensitivity to pain) effects.11

Beta-Pinene

Beta-pinene is the lesser-known cousin of alpha-pinene, one of the dominant cannabis terpenes. It has a woody, pine-like aroma and is common in pines and some other trees.Studies suggest that it may have anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, anticonvulsant, antimicrobial, anticancer, antioxidant, and gastroprotective properties.12

Terpinene

Terpinene is common in eucalyptus, citrus, cardamom, tea tree, and other plants, and has a refreshing, woody scent. It’s been demonstrated to have anti-inflammatory,13 antioxidant,14 and anticancer effects.15

Terpineol

Terpineol is abundant in lilac, pine, and lime blossom, and has a lilac-like aroma. Research suggests that it may have anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, anticancer, and antidepressant properties.16, 17, 18

Summing Up

Secondary terpenes contribute to the flavor and effects of cannabis, with each strain having a unique terpene profile.

While they might not play as big of a role as their dominant cousins, secondary terpenes are still important. For example, strains rich in limonene can be a good option for calming, uplifting effects.

You can search products by their terpene profile and look for specific secondary terpenes in our Producer Connect database.
