Pasha Brands Ltd. (“Pasha”) (CSE:CRFT, OTC:CRFTF, FSE:ZZD), North America’s largest craft cannabis brand house, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, BC Craft Supply Co. Ltd. (“BC Craft”), has signed a supply agreement with Waterloo, Ontario based Greenterra Cannabis (“Greenterra”).
The founders of Greenterra, Adam and Drew Anger, 30 and 24, are two brothers and successful businessmen who saw a tremendous opportunity to get into legal cannabis with a minimal investment. They completed their application using Tamra Follett’s do-it-yourself standard operating procedure kit, and will be cultivating cannabis in a greenhouse using hand-mixed soil and organic inputs.
Adam has owned several companies in the trucking and transportation industries and will be operating the business side of the greenhouse, while Drew, the owner of a marketing company, will be lead cultivator.
“Adam and Drew bring a youthfulness and excitement to their business that made signing a supply agreement with them so attractive to us,” said Patrick Brauckmann, Executive Chair of Pasha Brands. “They truly represent what it means to be a family-oriented business in the cannabis industry and we’re excited to get their product on the shelves of retailers across the country.”
With Canada’s current licensed cannabis producers only able to supply an estimated 15 percent of what Canadians are consuming, Pasha is optimistic that yet another new supply agreement will help correct the cannabis supply imbalance. Each micro cultivator in Canada will be allowed to produce approximately 500 kg of cannabis per year. Canada has tens of thousands of craft producers operating in the illicit cannabis market and BC Craft is focused on helping as many small farmers transition into the regulated market as possible.
“It’s hard to believe that we’re breaking into this industry and turning our hobby into a business,” said Adam Anger. “We’re really excited to partner with a company like BC Craft because we know that they prioritize not only craft cannabis but a sense of family the same way that we do.”
