Canada is poised to legalize recreational marijuana statewide this summer, putting “The Great White North” in a prime position to become a global leader in the cannabis industry. This news was revealed in 2017, following campaign pledges made by the Liberal party in the 2015 election. Job creation and economic stability are two major benefits of giving weed the green light. What’s more, cannabis legalization proves effective at dismantling the black market.

The country has been developing a multi-billion dollar legal marijuana industry for quite some time, with medical marijuana being legalized as far back as 2001. In fact, the Canadian cannabis market was worth an estimated $6.2 billion back in 2015 and according to Marijuana Business Daily, Canada’s cannabis industry will pull in an estimated annual figure of $2.3 billion-$4.5 billion by 2021!

So, which recreational marijuana brands are emerging as big game players in an industry that is grasping widespread investor attention? Let’s find out.

  1. Canopy Growth Corp. – Previously known as Tweed Marijuana Inc., this Ontario-based company is hot on the stock market right now. A vast scope of brands are operated under the company, which produces a diverse variety of strains inside its 500,000 square-foot greenhouse. Some of its core brands include Tweed, Spectrum Cannabis and Bedrocan.

  2. Aurora Cannabis – A pharmaceutical company headquartered in Vancouver, Aurora Cannabis is a producer and distributor of quality buds/products. Although this brand is acknowledged as Canada’s largest producer of medicinal marijuana, the company’s CEO, Terry Booth, recently raised $15 million to prepare for recreational cannabis legalization.

  3. DOJA Cannabis Company – Based in the scenic Okanagan Valley, this licensed cannabis producer handcrafts its cannabis strains to satisfy consumers in both the medical and recreational marijuana markets. The company’s main aim is to develop a cannabis lifestyle brand.

  4. AphriaThis producer of cannabis primarily targets the medical market, but it is setting its sights on the recreational marijuana industry. In fact, Aphria announced that it would invest CAD$10 million in the market back in December.

  5. Canna Farms – A client-focused brand that boasts innovative cultivation techniques, this family-owned and operated company cultivates contaminant-free plants with glacial-fed groundwater. No pesticides are used to produce the flowers, oils and live cannabis plants, all of which are available in blended varieties.

  6. CannTrust – For over 40 years, this cannabis producer has been helping in-need patients with a broad range of healthcare-focused products. The potential of legalizing cannabis for adult-use in Canada opens up a world of opportunity for CannTrust, which just obtained a license to export plants internationally.

  7. Canada’s Island Garden – All of the plants cultivated by this licensed cannabis producer are grown in accordance with environmental and quality control standards. Both high-CBD and high-THC products are offered to clients.

  8. Broken Coast Cannabis – This year, Broken Coast’s cannabis production facility will expand. Located on Vancouver Island, the facility is the heart of the company’s operations. Shoppers can browse by one of three main categories – marijuana, cannabis oil and accessories.

  9. THC Biomed – Only the highest-quality BC-grown buds are cultivated by this major Canadian cannabis company. Some of the live plants and dried cannabis contain high levels of THC, whereas other genetics are better-suited for patients who require a dose of CBD.

  10. Pi Extracts A brand new shatter producer, Pi Extracts sells pre-packaged grams of shatter from different strains, such as OG Kush and Green Crack. The THC distillate pens provide convenience on the move.

  11. Sweet Reef – If you like to indulge in sweet treats like salt water Taffy, you simply have to try the THC-laden candies produced by this cannabis edibles company. Packets are available in an assortment of fruity flavors.

  12. Gods Own Concentrates Butane extraction and Fractional Distillation are the two main extraction methods used to produce this brand’s high-end concentrates.

  13. Calyx Pure CBD – Squeeze a few drops of this brand’s pure hemp oil under your tongue to experience rapid relief from chronic pain. Combined with grapeseed oil and flavorings, this potent oil is not the only product that appeals to the cannabis community. Various recreational products are also infused with enriching CBD, including beauty and skincare goods.

  14. Nu THC Pills – Plant-extracted oils are contained in this brand of pills, which are created using plants grown in accordance with GMP and GPP standards. The oils are extracted using a supercritical CO2 technique.

  15. Thompson Caribou Concentrates Concentrates and shatter are sold by this brand to customers across Canada. The company is a proud winner of numerous “cups” at statewide cannabis industry competitions.

Canada’s recreational cannabis market is ever-growing and so, you can expect this list to feature a medley of new brands over the course of the next few months. In addition to the aforementioned brands, keep an eye out for products from Spark of Life CBD Tinctures, Northwest Cannabis Co and South Coast.
