Pure Sunfarms Ranks as Canada’s Favourite Flower Brand
Delta, B.C., July 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Holding its place as Canada’s top-selling dried flower brand, Pure Sunfarms expands its cannabis offerings to meet consumer demand by launching Blue Dream, a popular West Coast strain.
B.C.-based Pure Sunfarms is the top-selling dried flower brand in the three major markets in Canada: Ontario, Alberta and B.C. Pure Sunfarms has been the number one dried flower brand by sales in Ontario each quarter since its launch in September 20191. The company has also been ranked the top-selling dried flower brand in B.C. and Alberta since August 20202. This is attributed to the many popular cultivars Pure Sunfarms has in its portfolio, including its best-selling Pink Kush, which was the single highest-selling strain in Canada in June and over the past five months in Ontario1.
The company has recently expanded its dried flower lineup by introducing a new cultivar — Blue Dream, a legendary West Coast strain. Blue Dream is a highly sought-after strain across North America, ranking as the top-searched strain in Canada on the popular cannabis website, Leafly.ca3. Bred in California, the easygoing daytime strain is a fruit-forward, sativa-dominant cross of Blueberry and Haze with aromas of blueberry, lemon, and pine.
“As the leading brand of dried flower in Canada, we seek to provide consumers with a variety of products they’ll love at an everyday premium,” said Mandesh Dosanjh, President & CEO, Pure Sunfarms. “Blue Dream rounds out our flower portfolio with its popularity and deep West Coast origins.”
Pure Sunfarms’ Blue Dream is now available in B.C. and will be available in stores in Ontario and Alberta in July.
Along with Blue Dream, Pure Sunfarms has also added the following products to its offerings in select markets: Pennywise 1:1 dried flower, Pennywise 1:1 and CBD Full Spectrum Vapes, Peach Nectar CBD gummies featuring 10mg of CBD per piece, Balance Oil 15 featuring THC and CBD in equal potencies, and 0.3g pre-rolls (10 packs) available in D.Bubba and Pink Kush.
