We are constantly searching for new additions to our portfolio.  This series is all about showcasing how we hunt, what it’s about and showing how different various plants can be from each other.

What is a "Hunt?"

When we decide that there’s room in our portfolio, we work on finding the next addition.  We thought that consumers would like an inside peek at how this works, and even better, give them a chance to try multiple expressions of the same cultivar. 

The “phenohunt” is a key part of the industry, and one that needs to be highlighted. We will be releasing a small allocation of product here in New Brunswick that will display the work that goes into this type of thing.

On the Inside

No two seeds of the same cultivar are the same.  Not only will the plants look different from each other, they will have different properties in the grow room and different properties when it comes to aromas, flavours, THC levels, terpene levels, bud structure, and so much more.

When we undertake a hunt for something new, we need to find something that works for us business wise, something relevant with consumers and something that showcases our house style in the best way possible.

Thrill of the Hunt - Episode List

Episode 1: Gastropop (Coming April 2022)

Originally bred by Compound Genetics, Gastropop is cross of Apples & Bananas X Grape Gasoline.  We decided on this cultivar because of the pedigree of the breeder combined with the possible profiles it is capable of producing.  We knew we could bring something to life that would display our house style and really make some waves. 

We collaborated with our friends at Golden Peak Cannabis in Dieppe, NB.  We grew out 78 plants and 13 different expressions of Gastropop to try and find the perfect expression for us. 

It was a very interesting crop as the various expressions showed a wide range of traits in everything from rooting times to fruit aromas on the nose.  As we do these hunts, we of course want to find something that the market will desire, but it has to work for us as a plant and make business sense of as well. 

Our four favourite expressions of Gastropop!

This crop was the largest hunt we've ever done and we couldn't believe how different all of the expressions were. We had plants that were touching the lights they were so tall, and some we had to add extra plants to the table to fill the canopy. We adjusted our harvest days to ensure each was harvested at peak ripeness, with some taking an extra week longer to mature. I'm really impressed with the bud structure on our four favourites, even though the entire crop featured a smaller profile of bud. We know there is lots of potential here and can't wait to work with the selected expressions again after we hear from our consumers, especially.
