Nova Sco­tia’s rst li­cenced cannabis brand called SKOSHA

Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY - BY HARRY SUL­LI­VAN

A cannabis pro­ducer in Went­worth has an­nounced the in­tro­duc­tion of the prov­ince’s first li­cenced mar­i­juana for recre­ational con­sump­tion.

Breath­ing Green So­lu­tions has launched a recre­ational cannabis brand called SKOSHA.

“ ere’s no deny­ing that Nova Sco­tians have a taste for lo­cal,” said Joe San­ford, Op­er­a­tions man­ager and co-founder at Breath­ing Green So­lu­tions.

“In bring­ing the SKOSHA brand to market, we want to give lo­cal con­sumers a cannabis op­tion that is un­mis­tak­ably Nova Sco­tian,” he said, in a news re­lease. “We’re ex­cited to o er recre­ational con­sumers dis­tinctly lo­cal cannabis op­tions which fol­low in our prov­ince’s tra­di­tion of cre­at­ing in­cred­i­ble lo­cal prod­ucts.”

Breath­ing Green So­lu­tions, a mod­ern fa­cil­ity lo­cated in Went­worth Val­ley, re­cently be­came Nova Sco­tia’s rst li­cenced cannabis pro­ducer.

None of the cannabis brands cur­rently sold though Nova Sco­tia Liquor Com­mis­sion out­lets are pro­duced in Nova Sco­tia.

San­ford said an an­nounce­ment is planned for later this week as to where and when SKOSHA prod­ucts will be avail­able.

He said the SKOSHA brand em­pha­sizes the hyper-lo­cal na­ture of its hand­crafted cannabis and the home grown brand aims to re­son- ate with recre­ational con­sumers who pre­fer to buy lo­cal.

e SKOSHA brand is the prod­uct of ve years of “hard work by the Breath­ing Green So­lu­tions team,” he said, and the rst two strains that will be avail­able un­der that name, echo that Nova Sco­tian theme with a nod to the weather.

One strain is called Nor’easter, a sa­tiva-dom­i­nant hy­brid THC strain while a sec­ond is called Shel­ter, de­scribed as a milder, in­dica-dom­i­nant hy­brid strain with a nearly bal­anced THC-TO-CBD ra­tio.

“For the rst time, recre­ational con­sumers in Nova Sco­tia will be able to ex­pe­ri­ence the di er­ence that hand­crafted, lo­cally-grown cannabis prod­ucts can make,” the re­lease said.
