Rose LifeScience Inc. has partnered with another Quebecois micro-producer to continue expanding its craft cannabis collective DLYS.
On Monday, the cannabis company announced it’s partnering with Botanext, a micro-producer based in Val-d’Or, Quebec that specializes in hand-trimmed and hang-dried craft cannabis.
The first cultivar will be sold under the name DLYS du Nord and will be available on April 6 via the Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC). It will be a Sativa-dominant hybrid cultivar called Double Tangie Banana, which is a citric-flavoured cross between Banana Sherbert and Tangie.
DLYS by Rose currently offers products from Quebecois micro-cultivators AMDJ-canna, MindiCanna, Cannafrogs, LaHoja Organique, Les Cultures Vigi and Cultures Angers.
“Quebecers should have access to great products made right here,” Botanext President Maxime Godbout, said in a statement. “We know that’s important to them. Our love for a quality flower, combined with our knowledge, is the essence of the Botanext DNA.”
