Sept. 16, 2016, Smiths Falls, Ont. – Tweed Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation, has launched ‘Lemon Skunk’ in the Tweed store.
This is the first strain bred from DNA Genetics, hand selected through painstaking phenotyping by DNA Genetics, and grown to DNA standards in Tweed’s world-class facility at One Hershey Drive in Smiths Falls, Ontario.
“The number of awards won by DNA Genetics is simply unbelievable,” said Tweed president Mark Zekulin.
“Our partnership with DNA has allowed us to advance our growing to the next level, and now we can bring this very specific line of new products to market, grown out to the highest terpene and quality standards only for Tweed customers.”
DNA Genetics was founded in Amsterdam in 2004 and has won over 125 awards from prestigious cannabis events in several countries.
The launch of this prestigious line-up of hand picked genetics follows a recent announcement that Tweed has launched a new seed breeding area, which will serve as a massive accelerator towards unique product development capabilities in order to expand quality and variety through innovation.
In addition to brand new products, Tweed and DNA have collaborated on a phenotyping project that has now yielded dried cannabis worthy of official certification by the California-born, Holland-based breeding team.
