What We Do

Drawn from the boundless expanse of Alberta’s open, cerulean skies and the untarnished beauty of its surroundings, each and every plant under our care receives meticulous attention from our team of specialists, resulting in an unwaveringly premium product. For us, this transcends mere employment; it’s a true vocation, a labor of love we’ve embraced wholeheartedly. It’s a testament to the countless hours we’ve dedicated to refining our plant genetics and constructing the most optimal growth environments within our expansive 10,000 square-foot licensed facility, thoughtfully situated in the untouched heart of rural Alberta, far from any potential environmental impact. Every phase of our process is a symphony of hands-on involvement, where our fervor for uncompromising quality infuses every step. It’s the embodiment of our commitment to producing top-tier, small-batch strains that reflect our unwavering dedication to excellence.
