Kitchener, Ont. —  Highland Cannabis, a local, independent cannabis retailer, is celebrating its three year anniversary of serving the Waterloo region with a unique product offering. As a token of gratitude to the local community that has made them the number one cannabis retailer in the Waterloo region, and one of the top 10 cannabis retailers in the province of Ontario, Highland Cannabis is excited to unveil a special product: ‘Highland Special: Paulander Purple.’

What makes this offering unique is that Highland Cannabis will receive no profit from their collaboration with their grower. This decision allows independent retailers across Ontario to offer Paulander Purple at a below-average retail price of $44 for seven grams or $86 for 14 grams. Highland Cannabis is committed to sharing the celebration and joy of their three year anniversary with cannabis enthusiasts throughout the province, making it accessible and cost-effective.

“We are immensely grateful for the support of our community over the past three years. Highland Special: Paulander Purple is a tribute to our customers and neighbours who have made this journey so rewarding,” said Owen Allerton, founder and owner of Highland Cannabis.

Named after the nearby Paulander Drive in Kitchener, Ontario, where many of Highland’s customers reside and their delivery drivers frequent, Paulander Purple is a unique and locally inspired strain of cannabis that embodies the spirit of the community: creativity, innovation, tranquility and joyfulness. Working in collaboration with a prominent Southern Ontario cannabis grower, Highland Cannabis’s dedicated budtenders meticulously sampled various purple strains, ultimately selecting a super purple, very heavy Indica for its distinctive qualities resembling the Waterloo region.


Master grower Zane Roberts took charge of perfecting the cultivation of the Paulander Purple strain, resulting in beautiful frosted nugs that glitter with trichomes and boast a rich terpene profile. The inaugural batch of Paulander Purple impressively registers at 27.96 per cent THC and 3.3 per cent Terps, ensuring a potent and aromatic experience for cannabis enthusiasts.

“The release of Paulander Purple is a celebration of our shared moments as a retailer and as a community, and we are excited to share this special strain with the entire province,” said Allerton.

Highland Cannabis invites the community to join in the celebration of their three year anniversary and the launch of Highland Special: Paulander Purple. The product will be available for purchase starting January 12, 2024, at Highland Cannabis and select independent retailers across Ontario.
