Medical cannabis producer WeedMD Inc. has partnered with craft cannabis producer CannTx Life Sciences Inc. for a limited edition release of two exclusive cultivars.

“Rockstar Tuna” and “Royal Goddess” are high-THC whole flower products that will be made available to WeedMD’s subsidiary, Starseed Medicinal Inc., starting late May this year.

“This unique partnership is a natural fit for both WeedMD and CannTx, bringing together complementary renowned cultivars, with distinctive terpene profiles, that are hand-crafted for our medical patients by this University of Guelph-affiliated micro-propagator,” said Joseph Mele, SVP, Commercial Sales and Marketing, WeedMD. 

WeedMD and CannTx have had a long-standing commercial partnership. In July 2020, the two companies announced an agreement to enhance WeedMD’s genetics bank with new cultivars, and to preserve the lifecycle of elite proprietary strains such as Pedro’s Sweet Sativa, using tissue culture technology. This has allowed WeedMD and its brands to consistently and perpetually clone, grow and produce the same great products on which they’ve built a solid reputation.

In addition to expanding WeedMD’s genetics bank and cultivars’ lifecycle with its rejuvenation techniques, CannTx’s platform also banks genetic material for secure storage and plant asset preservation.
