New Regulations are Set to Introduce Cannabis-Based Edibles and Oils to Canada

NEW YORKSept. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Last year, Canada legalized cannabis for recreational adult use. Since then, the Canadian market has grown rapidly to become a prominent global market driver. Initially, Canada faced heavy legal barriers, which hindered the growth of the market, as the federal government imposed restrictions in order to keep the market regulated. However, regulatory laws are beginning to loosen as more provinces are approving operating licenses. For instance, Alberta alone accounted for nearly a third of total Canadian cannabis sales, despite provinces such as QuebecOntario, and British Columbia having a much larger population. In particular, provinces such as Ontario witnessed widespread shortages largely due to cannabis operators being unable to keep up with demand. As a result, provinces have pledged to issue dozens of licenses for businesses applying in efforts to ramp up production and sales. Furthermore, licenses are also being granted in anticipation of Canada’s “second legalization,” which is expected to be implemented in the latter half of 2019. The second legalization is expected to introduce cannabis-based products such as oils, tinctures, edibles, and concentrates to the Canadian market. However, despite Canada having already legalized cannabis, it is still overshadowed by the U.S.’s burgeoning market. Currently, the U.S. is the primary growth driver for the global cannabis market, largely due to the states such as California and Colorado, which adopted cannabis reform early. Conversely, Canada’s recreational market is still in its infancy stage. However, the market is primed to witness exponential growth as it continues to mature over the next several years. And according to data compiled by Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, the legal cannabis spending in Canada is projected to grow at a CAGR of 44.4% from USD 569 Million in 2018 to nearly USD 5.2 Billion by 2024.

In 2018, the market share for dried cannabis flower began to dwindle as more consumers shifted towards concentrates and extracts. Generally, many consumers have begun to prefer cannabis-based oils because of their potency and versatile use. Cannabis oils are typically vaped through devices, however, consumers can also add oils to foods, beverages, and even skin-care products. The oils are generally made by extracting the cannabinoid content from a dried flower, meaning there will always be a large demand for generic flower. Additionally, the potency of the oil can vary depending on the type of flower used. For instance, extractors looking to create a highly potent oil would most likely use a THC dominant strain. Generally, extractors purchase wholesale cannabis in order to be able to mass-produce oils. However, wholesale cannabis is typically known to lack quality due to the number of artificial byproducts that are added during growth. As a result, craft cannabis growers have come into the spotlight. Craft cultivators engage in a tedious process of growing premium cannabis strains. The cultivators tend to avoid using artificial products that may damage the cannabinoid content, which can weaken the potency of the strain. In order to maintain high-quality cannabinoids, craft cultivators also nurture each and every individual plant to ensure proper growth. Now, craft cannabis brands are creating a whole new dynamic market that is appealing to health-conscious and frequent consumers. However, as the craft industry continues to grow, consumers across a broad spectrum are expected to appeal to the art of craft cannabis. “I completely agree that passion, care and attention to every detail is required to produce superior-quality cannabis with rich cannabinoid and terpene profiles. There cannot be compromises to nutrient-source quality, environmental control nor labor practices,” said Kenneth Morrow, Founder of Trichome Technologies. “I firmly believe those who produce the best cannabis, regardless of scale, will always have customers, and those who do it ethically and sustainably possess even more strategic advantages.”

Pasha Brands Ltd. (OTC: CRFTF) (CSE: CRFT) is also listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker (CSE: CRFT). Yesterday, the Company announced breaking news that, “it has acquired the brand “Baked Edibles” (“Baked Edibles”), previously used by Canada’s longest-running commercial cannabis bakery. In its previous iteration, Baked Edibles was an iconic pre-legalization brand that served Canadians for years and will now take its place among leading edible brands in the regulated market.

Under previous ownership, from its base in Victoria, Baked Edibles supplied premium edibles, cannabis oils, capsules, and topicals to the Canadian market beginning in 2015, following the R v. Smith Supreme Court ruling, which declared the legal right to possess cannabis derivatives for medical purposes. In addition to an exceptional line of products, Baked Edibles differentiated itself from other grey market edibles brands by sourcing high quality ingredients, and, in the interest of public health and safety, providing customers with valuable product information and dosing guidelines. It was also the first cannabis bakery in Canada to receive a municipal business licence.

In obtaining the Baked Edibles brand and its associated intellectual property, Pasha will rework the brand’s product line-up to better suit Health Canada’s forthcoming amendments to the Cannabis Act, while maintaining the Baked Edibles spirit by utilizing existing recipes and using high quality ingredients.

A long-time favourite in the grey market among consumers, the Baked Edibles name formed the basis for an operation that was a pioneer in the areas of dosage control, best-in-class standard operating procedures, and product consistency.

‘This is a natural fit for Pasha and exemplifies our approach to bringing authentic cannabis brands into the legal marketplace,’ said Jason Longden, CEO of Pasha. ‘Baked Edibles has been a force in the Canadian cannabis industry and has inarguably set the standard of what high quality edibles should be. With Health Canada regulations for edibles and consumables anticipated in the coming months, we look forward to further developing our product offering.’
