Introducing Our New Buds: SKOSHA

You Want the Real Thing? SKOSHA’s Got It

At Namaste, we’re always on the look out for new partnerships and opportunities to collaborate with other brands that share our commitment to providing high-quality cannabis products to Canadian consumers.

That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with SKOSHA, Nova Scotia’s first recreational cannabis brand, to help bring their premium quality cannabis to consumers across the country.

Based in the clean, cool forests of the Wentworth Valley, SKOSHA pays homage to its East Coast roots with strain names like Nor’Easter and Lemon Dory. Handcrafted by locals and never irradiated, SKOSHA cannabis is the real thing.

Why SKOSHA Cannabis?

SKOSHA’s unique growing methodology and Nova Scotian heritage are a natural fit with Namaste, since our Stellarton facility is located a stone’s throw away from their facility and corporate headquarters.

Besides location, their dedication to quality and social responsibility impressed us.

Their manifesto explains it best:

“At SKOSHA, we insist on transparency. We say what we do and do what we say. We strive for harmony by respecting our natural environment and the people who call it home. We believe cannabis has a place in an open-minded lifestyle, rich with purpose and joy. We use our passion for science and innovation to deliver best-quality products — every time. We are leaders and listeners, educators and dreamers. We are SKOSHA.”

What Makes SKOSHA Cannabis Unique?

SKOSHA cannabis is grown using a proprietary process called the PurePlant™ method. This unique approach involves a ruthlessly discriminating seed selection process; rigorous growing practices that involve daily interactions with every plant; and a nutrition regimen that is carefully tailored to each plant’s specific needs.

These growing techniques were developed and perfected over 20 years of medical cannabis cultivation, and produce optimal yields of premium, clean, non-irradiated cannabis.

All SKOSHA cannabis is grown indoors in small batches, slow cured and lightly trimmed to preserve terpene content. Their Private Collection flower is hand-trimmed.

Social Responsibility at SKOSHA

It might be enough for some cannabis brands to just grow great cannabis, but SKOSHA doesn’t stop there.

SKOSHA minimizes their packaging waste by using only one layer of packaging for all their products. Their Private Collection flower comes in a reusable, recyclable moisture-locking container made with the least material possible, and they continuously optimize their processes to find ways to reduce their ecological footprint.

SKOSHA is also committed to promoting responsible consumption for adults and preventing youth from accessing cannabis. You can find educational information and tips for responsible use of cannabis on their website.
