VICTORIA: Shelter Craft Collective, a division of 1193269 BC Ltd., doing business as Shelter Cannabis (Shelter) is proud to announce that North 40 Cannabis (North 40) was made available to retailers in Saskatchewan today.North 40 is Canada’s first licensed micro-cultivator and processor. Based in Saskatchewan, the small family run grow with over thirty years of cultivation experience will be bringing their first harvest to market under Shelter’s house brand, Farmstead.
We are extremely pleased to be able to team up with Shelter to get our products out to consumers, said Gord Nichol of North 40. It’s been a long time coming and we couldn’t be happier that our home province, Saskatchewan, will be first in line to have access to our hand crafted, small batch cannabis.
Nichol went on to say he believes this is the start of a turning point in the cannabis industry where quality will challenge the big companies for consumers hearts and minds. We trust our products will meet, and hopefully exceed expectations.
Processed in Shelter’s Agro-Greens facility, this small-batch, hand-trimmed and non-irradiated craft cannabis is the first wave of what many expect to be a coming craft revolution in Canada’s cannabis industry. A lot of us lobbied for the inclusion of this class of license and worked hard behind the scenes to make this happen, said Jamie Shaw, Director of Communications and Culture for Shelter. We are proud to be bringing cannabis grown and processed in Saskatchewan to Saskatchewan consumers, and we hope other provinces look to what Saskatchewan is getting right.
