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.”

Last year, Village Farms International, Inc. (TSX: VFF) (Nasdaq: VFF), the parent company of Pure Sunfarms, bought a 70-per-cent stake in Rose for a deal totalling $46.7 million.

“The team at Botanext is proving how important Québec micro-producers are to the cannabis industry — and more importantly, the Québec consumer,” Rose CEO Davide Zaffino ROSE said in a statement.

“Everyone on the Botanext team has a clear passion for what they do, and their attention to product detail exemplifies all the values of DLYS,” he added.

Rose LifeScience is a leading third-party cannabis partner, acting as the sole direct-to-retail sales, marketing and distribution entity for Entourage Health Corp. (TSXV: ENTG) (OTCQX: ETRGF) (FSE: 4WE), Sundial Growers Inc. (Nasdaq: SNDL), Tilray, Inc. (TSX: TLRY) (Nasdaq: TLRY) The Flowr Corporation (CVE: FLWR), as well as 10 micro and craft growers throughout Quebec.

Rose has also teamed up with artisanal hemp producer Après La Pluie, which focuses on outdoor, non-psychoactive cannabis and will debut a CBD-based product under the Six Lunes brand.

The company owns Tam Tams, a legal weed brand, processed at its licensed 55,000 square-foot facility in Huntingdon.
