St. Stephen – Tidal Health Solutions Ltd. (Tidal) in St. Stephen, one of Canada’s leading suppliers of cannabis 2.0 products, has announced that it is now supplying soft chews in provinces across Canada. Tidal is a leading supplier of lifestyle and medical cannabis products, and an innovative manufacturer of cannabis edibles, concentrates, and topicals. Tidal is one of the few licensed producers in Canada to hold a full cannabis 2.0 license, which allows for the sale of sprays, concentrates, edibles, and topicals.
“We just launched four of them,” said Chief Commercial Officer Steve Johnston. “I think we’re the first in Canada to launch soft chews with full spectrum extract, which is very unique in cannabis products. It’s fairly new for those who aren’t familiar with what cannabis is and what edibles are. That’s something that we’re extremely excited about.”
Johnston said full spectrum extract is basically a process that preserves the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in the cannabis plant. Most companies produce items that are only a distillate, which is cannabis THC. He said full spectrum extract has the compounds responsible for what is known as the “entourage effect”, which enhances the existing THC in a product.
“All of our soft chews moving forward, and we’ve got some more coming down the pipeline, will be made with full spectrum extract. It’s a much, much more unique effect overall, what we call the entourage effect. It basically supports the existing TCH, which most people are known for.”
Currently, there are four flavors of soft chews: watermelon, peach, grape, and sour cherry. Johnston said they are indica-dominant soft chews, but the company is also planning on launching sativa-based chews later on this summer. Indica is for those who want to relax, and sativa is more uplifting. Tidal also plans on launching soft chews that are just CBD.
The soft chews are currently available in one chew per pack, and each pack contains 10 milligrams of THC. This product is suitable for all consumers of legal age. The product is currently available in the three maritime provinces, as well as in Saskatchewan and Ontario, and will soon be available in Alberta.
Johnston also hinted at another new product that Tidal has already launched in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia: cannabis creams. These are often used by those who have muscle and joint pain, and can be used to treat a number of muscle and joint pain issues.
