Canadian company eyes high-THC odourless cannabis products

In addition to the high THC content, CannabCo Pharmaceutical’s Purecann makes the cannabis virtually odourless when smoked or stored, reducing impact on others sensitive to the pungent odour.

Ontario-based CannabCo Pharmaceutical has announced a milestone achievement in testing one of the industry’s most potent cannabis strains at 41 per cent total quantifiable cannabinoid content. The strain features a lab-tested cannabinoid count of 40.59 per cent with a THC rating of 35 per cent. The main distinguishing feature of the strain, other than its high THC content, is that it was created with Purecann, CannabCo’s proprietary Odourless Cannabis technology.

The deployment of Purecann makes the product virtually odourless when smoked or stored, allowing for a reduced impact on others sensitive to the pungent odour of cannabis.

The company has developed and tested multiple Purecann strains ranging from less that 0.3 per cent for the smoke-able hemp market, with numerous strains in the 20 to 32 per cent range, culminating to the highest THC range currently at 35 per cent.

Currently the highest THC dry flower in the Ontario Cannabis Store lists at a maximum of 32 per cent THC.

Mark Pellicane, CannabCo’s CEO, thinks they can do better. “We are always pushing the limits with our technologies,” he said. “With the demand for high THC strains, it made sense to target the same in odourless variants and our result is one of the highest THC strains produced to date.”

The company also has multiple strains in the high 30s in the works, as well as market specific strains with targeted THC levels and cannabinoid profiles for specific markets and effects.
