Alberta Grown Series #5: Candre Cannabis

Candre Cannabis

Welcome back to our Alberta-grown cannabis series where we are highlighting all of the good green being grown right here in our beautiful prairie backyards. 

When it comes to Alberta-grown cannabis Candre is producing some of the most notable brands on the market. Responsible for well-known names such as Violet Tourist, Queen of Bud Cannabis, and RGB Group Inc; their premium products are quickly becoming key players in redefining Alberta as the true home of oil and grass. The quality at Candre is rooted directly in their beliefs. They value the relentless pursuit of greatness while maintaining high standards in everything they do, something the Plantlife family  full-heartedly agree with.

A History of Quality

The story of Candre is not much different from the story of Plantlife. A journey of thoughtful partnerships and careful cultivation, fueled by the desire to bring top-shelf flower to the Canadian cannabis market. By growing rare cultivars with high cannabinoid and terpene contents, Candre is distinguishing itself as a highly-demanded producer. 

Their state-of-the-art facility, Calyptra, is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains in the town of Sundre, Alberta. Thanks to the crisp mountain air and clean glacier water this location makes for top-notch growing conditions. Calyptra contains twelve 1600sq/ft grow rooms where expert growers maintain hand-harvested, hang-dried, premium whole flower. With a setup like this, it’s no wonder their products stand out among the rest.

What’s Growing at Calyptra:

The Calyptra facility is fully equipped to produce, process and package their own cannabis and/or source quality cannabis, from carefully selected producers. Living up to the hype, Candre’s brands stand out as some of the most exceptional on the market. Here’s the low-down on what you can find at Plantlife.
