CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sugarbud Craft Growers Corp. (TSXV: SUGR, SUGR.DB, SUGR.WR, SUGR.WS, SUGR.WT,) (OTCQB: SBUDF) (“Sugarbud” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the further expansion of the Company’s Craft Cannabis Collection with the launch of the Company’s first Cannabis 2.0 products under its own sales license along with the launch of its first 30%+ THC dried flower product – GMO Cookies.
Product Portfolio Expansion
Sugarbud GMO Cookies 3.5g Dried Flower | Sugarbud GMO Cookies is an indica-dominant hybrid strain created by crossing the popular GSC and classic Chemdawg. The buds are thin, long, open-structured and delicate, with a mix of olive green and purple, accentuated by orange hairs and a sugary coat of shimmering trichomes. Sugarbud’s GMO Cookies shows all the classic aromas of musty cellars, savory garlic, sweet spice, and earthy coffee. Total THC will range between 26-32% with a terpene profile of between 2-4%. “GMO Cookies is yet another fine example of our commitment to consumer satisfaction and the house-style and craftsmanship that has come to define Sugarbud Craft Cannabis – dense, sugary buds, exceptional terpene forward aromas and smooth flavors,” stated Sugarbud President and CEO, John Kondrosky.
Sugarbud Krypto Chronic #2 Flower Rosin | Sugarbud’s first flower rosin is an exceptional concentrate made through the solventless extraction of Sugarbud’s exclusive indica dominant hybrid genetic – Krypto Chronic #2.
Solventless extraction methods place a premium on maintaining the naturally occurring terpenes, flavors, aromas and cannabinoids throughout the entire process, ensuring that the full essence of the original dried flower is maintained. Sugarbud’s Krypto Chronic #2 flower rosin is another exceptional example of Sugarbud’s “House Style”, and embodies the same quality, consistency, flavor profiles and aromas consumers have come to expect from the Sugarbud Craft Cannabis Collection. Total THC will range between 60-70% with a total terpene profile of between 5-8%.
Sugarbud WC # 11 | Made using CO2 extraction of Sugarbud’s exclusive indica dominant hybrid cultivar – Wedding Cake #11 – each 0.5g WC #11 vape cartridge is additive free and contains only 100% cannabis extract. The high terpene content comes from the careful subcritical CO2 extraction of its dried craft cannabis and the cannabinoids are then extracted using a supercritical CO2 extraction method. The result is high-quality terpene forward extract that offers consumers a flavor and aroma profile consistent with dried flower it is derived from – such as the distinct hints of smoky spice, citrus and pine.
“Building on the momentum that we have established with our recently launched Bahama Blizzard #11 dried flower and our expanded Mule Fuel and Krypto Chronic #2 Pre-Roll formats – we are very pleased to now be rolling out our first Cannabis 2.0 products under our own sales license. Entry into the Cannabis 2.0 segment is a major catalyst for growth moving forward and we expect to build upon the scope and reach of these initial launches in subsequent quarters,” concluded Mr. Kondrosky.
The Company expects 3.5g GMO Cookies Premium Craft Flower, Krypto Chronic #2 1.0g Flower Rosin and WC #11 0.5g Vape cartridges to be available for purchase from private cannabis retailers throughout Alberta and online at AlbertaCannabis.org and nationally to registered medical patients through CannMart.com in late December, 2021.
