Not that we’re complaining, but the Canadian market went from zero to 100 in the cannabis product department in just a few years. With so many options on the market, it can be overwhelming to know what works for you – and nobody wants to hold up the line of cannabis cravers at the local dispensary with too many questions for the budtender.
Canada’s new culture of cannabis users – one that emerged not long after the legalization of cannabis in 2017 – includes countless customers, from university students to grandparents. Some prefer CBD, some have a soft spot for THC, some consume edibles only, and others do it all.
For those in need of a refresher, CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Where they vary, however, is in their psychedelic properties. Quite simply: THC will cause a person to experience a high while CBD will not. Whatever your preference, we’re here to simplify the decision-making process for you: first and foremost, you may want to stick to the long-time local experts.
Whereas most of Canada’s cannabis brands are relatively new, David Marcus has a long history in the hemp industry, with over 25 years of involvement in the space. His company ABIDE and their flagship brand WholeHemp have deep roots – all the way back to 1995, with the launch of Marcus’ first hemp business, Natural Emphasis. Next came the launch of Pure Hemp rolling papers to the North American market back in 1997, and their first hemp crop in 1998.
For well over 25 years, the company has carved a name for itself through its businesses, as well as the organizations and research programs it supports. WholeHemp’s latest cannabis venture is to bring local, artisanally produced, high-quality, full-spectrum hemp CBD products to Ontario consumers.
Now, the brand offers a variety of flower products, ranging from high CBD hemp flower with minimal THC, to THC: CBD custom blends. So, there are options available for those who don’t necessarily want to feel the full effects of THC. All WholeHemp products are made with high CBD flower sun-grown outdoors by hand-selected local Ontario farmers – many of whom happen to be women. All products are produced in small batches and are full spectrum, containing the full range of cannabinoids and terpenes as found in the plants they are made from, not isolates or purified CBD. All formulations are developed to be 100% botanical, using high-quality ingredients and sustainable packaging.
Those who’d prefer to stay away from THC – and a subsequent high – should opt for WholeHemp Milled CBD Flower, or their best-selling WholeHemp Premium CBD Flower. The brand also offers a therapeutically powerful, all-natural CBD cream made from a blend of shea butter and CBD-infused organic sunflower oil.
The ABIDE + WholeHemp custom blends introduce ABIDE’s higher THC offerings to WholeHemp’s CBD Flower. It is all premium, sun-grown milled flower and the CBD dominant 6:9 was their first custom blend product offering. It features ABIDE’s finest OG Haze paired with WholeHemp Premium CBD Flower and consistently delivers 6% THC & 9% CBD in a value-priced 14g pouch.
More recently they have launched10:4, a THC-dominant custom blend of ABIDE’s finest OG Haze and WholeHemp Premium CBD Flower. This higher yet still moderate potency premium sun-grown milled flower consistently delivers 10% THC & 4% CBD. While other cannabis brands also offer quality blends, with WholeHemp, you’re supporting environmentally friendly local farmers and manufacturers with decades of knowledge and the strictest levels of quality. Whether you’re in the market for a better night’s sleep or a cannabis buzz, WholeHemp products are available on the Ontario Cannabis Store website.
