Nova Scotia’s rst licenced cannabis brand called SKOSHA
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.
