The Canadian cannabis concentrate scene has been heating up this year, with many new entrants and products entering the market at a rapid pace. Solventless concentrates such as live rosin and hash rosin specifically have seen a rise in popularity and prevalence. In mature markets such as California, dabbable concentrates account for between 20-35% of all cannabis sales. Canada is still catching up on these product types and consumer trends. In this article we profile the Canadian solventless concentrate brands leading the way in this exciting new category. 

BIG

Striving for big taste at the lowest price possible, BIG takes an artisanal approach when creating solventless concentrates. From their years of being in the legacy market, they use a proprietary process called the Hasho Method that gently allows the cannabis to preserve its flavour.

EarthWolf Farms

Starting as a hops farm, EarthWolf Farms turned to organic cannabis to expand its business. Their motto “Sun, Soil, and Smoke”, reflects in their honest hard effort in creating craft cannabis, which offers a unique flavour and aroma due to the mountain air. When creating their concentrates they isolate the trichomes using ice water extraction. Currently, out of stock at the OCS.

Avana

A few months back we featured Jonathan Hirsh as a Trailblazer from Avana. Their passion for cannabis and process of concentrates is at the forefront of their brand, bringing premium solventless concentrates to the market. Crafting their products with the cannabis connoisseur, they offer live rosin, hash and vape cartridges. Currently only available with the OCS and other select provinces, they feature new cultivars every few months.

Their popular exotic Indica-dominant strain Peanut Butter Mac has been turned into a Live Rosin. This product is now available in Ontario and offers a golden, terpy dabbable concentrate for consumers. Expect more high-quality concentrates from this team.

Beurre Blanc

Putting the “Beau” in boutique cannabis, Beurre Blanc produces curated concentrates using traditional methods and advanced technologies. By combining small-batch craft cannabis (Jet Fuel Gelato X Orange Cookies), ice water, and pressure, Beure Blanc’s rosin is juicy and has a texture similar to taffy. Also, producing flower and cartridges, Beurre Blanc is another company to look out for.
