Recreational cannabis to be included in the CFTA

Recreational cannabis to be included in the CFTA

9 December 2022Economy

To reduce barriers to trade and labour mobility, the Canadian government has developed an Action Plan. This plan has five main components, including the review of CFTA to reduce federal exceptions, particularly in the area of government procurement. This is of great interest to our industry as "Minister LeBlanc mentioned the federal government's initiative to include non-medical cannabis under CFTA". We welcome this initiative since, as we know, the cannabis industry is an active participant in the country's economic success, having contributed more than $43.5 billion to the Canadian GDP since 2018.

Artisanal cannabis: a story of passion

Artisanal cannabis: a story of passion

6 December 2022Products

Alexandre Gauthier, vice president of research and development and director of cultivation and sales analyst at Origine Nature, gave an interview to Narcity in which he pushes for a better knowledge of artisanal cannabis. Because, he says, what differentiates craft cannabis from mass-produced cannabis is passion. "[In large-scale cannabis facilities] everything is dried quickly. Everything is cut by machine. Everything goes through an automated line to separate the buds and package them automatically. And so that's where you become, of course, mass production. When you're talking about artisanal cannabis, there are a lot more human steps and human control." This passion drives Origine Nature to create the perfect conditions for cannabis plants, a plant that is very sensitive to its environment. So any changes in the climate or in its irrigation level will have an impact on the final product. And this also pushes Origine Nature to innovate in order to create a more ecological and nature-friendly industry: "we lay the foundations, we make sure that everyone realizes that we can do it", explains Alexandre Gauthier.
