Cannabis fa­cil­ity re­leases new strain

The Amherst News - - CUMBERLAND COUNTY -

A cannabis pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity in Went­worth has in­tro­duced a third strain to its re­tail lineup.

The new line is called Mi­rage, an in­dica-dom­i­nant hy­brid, and is billed as Breath­ing Green So­lu­tions strong­est strain in its SKOSHA lineup, which makes it “ide­ally suited for evening en­joy­ment,” said the com­pany in a news re­lease.

The strain is in­spired by the Bay of Fundy, the re­lease said, where boats rest­ing on the ocean floor at low tide can seem like a mi­rage.

“Mi­rage is a pow­er­house in­dica with a burst­ing ter­pene pro­file that de­liv­ers a truly unique ex­pe­ri­ence,” said chief op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer Joe San­ford.

He said Mi­rage’s strong in­dica-dom­i­nance pro­vides a nice con­trast in the SKOSHA strain lineup along­side its de­but flag­ship sativa, Nor’Easter.

“Our team here in Went­worth has been putting a lot of time into work­ing with this strain, and we couldn’t be more proud to bring yet an­other lo­cally hand­crafted cannabis va­ri­ety to mar­ket for Nova Sco­tians to en­joy,” San­ford said.

SKOSHA is Nova Sco­tia’s first li­censed cannabis brand and is the first home­grown Nova Sco­tian cannabis avail­able for pur­chase in the prov­ince through the NSLC.

At launch, SKOSHA’s Mi­rage will be avail­able only in Nova Sco­tia, ex­clu­sively in whole flower at a 3.5-gram pack­aged weight. It is listed as hav­ing THC con­tent of 15.19 per cent and a CBD con­tent of 0.03 per cent.

Mi­rage is de­scribed as hav­ing a “ter­pene pro­file of pinene, caryophyl­lene and limonene” that com­bines to de­liver a unique smell of herbal lemon cake bat­ter.”

“This ter­pene pro­file ex­tends to Mi­rage’s tast­ing notes, with ini­tial hints of citrus balanc­ing to a woody, herbal fin­ish.”


Joe San­ford, COO of the Breath­ing Green So­lu­tions cannabis pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity in Went­worth, is seen show­ing the prod­uct to a re­porter dur­ing a re­cent tour of the op­er­a­tion.
