MedMen is a brand name many cannabis users south of the border are familiar with. The company is one of the foremost cannabis brands in the US, specializing in advanced growing facilities and innovative cultivation. Their retail stores are revolutionary, serving as more than just a weed shop, but as a place to educate consumers.
It’s safe to say that MedMen know their cannabis as they continue to change the face of the United States market. So, the news that MedMen are heading to the Great White North is very exciting for consumers!
However, MedMen isn’t doing this on their own, they are joining forces with one of Canada’s biggest cannabis companies. As part of a joint venture with Cronos Group, MedMen is finally arriving in Canada’s recreational market.
Under Cronos Group’s medical cannabis brand Peace Naturals, the cross-border partnership with MedMen is the first of its kind. Both parties bring a wealth of industry experience, so it appears a match made in heaven.
We don’t know much about what strains are becoming available under the MedMen’s Canadian brand. There are plans for several products to become available, all with the trademark quality from both MedMen and Peace Naturals.
As online retailers are the only place to get MedMen cannabis in Canada, be sure to check your provincial website. Here, there is currently one strain available from MedMen by Peace Naturals, giving a taste of what’s to come.
Mint GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) is a hybrid strain currently available from MedMen by Peace Naturals Project. A unique hybrid bred from Durban Poison and OG Kush, it features a blend of dark and light green hues. The hairs are a dark orange while the bud has a thick white coating of crystals.
As the name suggests, the strain has a prominent mint aroma with a sweet undertone and subtle earthiness. This is due to the unique terpene profile, which includes pinene, caryophyllene, humulene, and myrcene. These terpenes provide the sharp aroma and flavour that make Mint GSC a smooth and silky smoke.
The THC content is in the mid-to-high range at 16-22%, so is only suitable for more experienced users. Mint GSC offers a full-body high along with a potent psychoactive effect on the mind, so experience is recommended. Its appealing aroma and flavour make it a joy to smoke, but just be mindful of its intense effects.
This is just the beginning for MedMen by Peace Naturals. Many more strains are expected to hit provincial websites in the future, so don’t forget to check there for the brand’s latest offerings.
