Coupled with our commitment to quality and consistency in supply, I’m confident that our range of products will help to play a role in decreasing the size of the illicit footprint.
The range of new products includes Canna Farms™ BC Kief, Canna Farms™ BC Bubble Hash, Canna Farms™ BC Live Rosin, and Canna Farms™ BC Hash Rosin. “Our offering for traditional concentrates meets the demand for solvent free products that keep terpenes & flavour intact,” said Dan LaFlamme, President, Canna Farms Ltd.
