Dutch Passion is partnering up with ANC Cannabis Inc. unlocking the legal production and distribution of the very first batch of Canadian-produced Dutch Passion cannabis seeds starting with Critical Orange Punch and Purple #1. The two varieties are expected to be available for purchase through the Ontario Cannabis Store starting February 7th for retailers and February 14th for consumers.
Original Dutch Passion seeds in Canada
"Enabling commercial and home growers to produce their own premium-quality cannabis plants has always been at the heart of Dutch Passion’s work," the Dutch Passion team explains. "Today, we are proud to achieve a new milestone in this regard by sharing our expertise and genetics with ANC Cannabis Inc., a standard licensed cultivation company founded in western Canada focusing on starting materials for commercial and home growers."
More than just a partnership, the “Masters at Work” have made a point of guiding and overviewing the Canadian production of seeds from one end to the other of the process in order to ensure Dutch Passion's quality standards are fully met. Sales are expected to begin on Jan, 25 for retailers and Feb, 1st for consumers.
“We are delighted to see our Dutch Passion best-seller seeds being available to all Canadian home growers. The selection and breeding processes have taken some time, but we are really happy with the results, says Eric Siereveld, CEO of Dutch Passion. We are looking forward to bringing more strains to the Canadian market in the near future.”
Distribution by Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS)
Critical Orange Punch and Purple #1, two of Dutch Passion’s best-selling cannabis seed varieties, will be the first original seeds to be sold to Canadian retailers and consumers via the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) starting from the first quarter of 2022. "This is an important first step for Canadian growers who are keen to sample new cannabis genetics which can be purchased completely legally through approved, official, channels," they continue. "Several other photoperiods and auto-flowering strains from the Dutch Passion collection are also expected to be produced and sold through this Dutch Passion X ANC Cannabis Inc. partnership."
Dutch Passion X ANC Cannabis Inc.
Since Canada became the second country in the world to fully legalize the use of cannabis for medical and recreational purposes in 2018, Dutch Passion saw a surge in demand from Canadian commercial and home growers. "Finding the right partner to meet the end-customers’ expectations while preserving premium-quality standards has been a challenging task. With our common ambition and values, we are confident that choosing ANC Cannabis Inc. was the best pick to venture in this new journey," they conclude.
