Company becomes first to market in Florida with concentrates produced via hydrocarbon extraction. Hydrocarbon extracts offer patients high quality, full-spectrum concentrates as a uniquely powerful, aromatic and high purity medicine
Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (CSE: TRUL) (OTCQX: TCNNF), a leading and top-performing cannabis company based in the United States, today announced the launch of a new line of high-quality cannabis concentrates made through hydrocarbon extraction. Live Resin, a high-terpene, single-source extract, is the first offering from Trulieve's new hydrocarbon line.
Live Resin is created in Trulieve's state-of-the-art hydrocarbon extraction lab using the Company's proprietary blend of propane and butane on TruFlower that has been frozen immediately after harvest. The result is a strain-specific and full-spectrum concentrate that is exceptionally flavorful. It contains higher levels of cannabinoids and terpenes than other concentrates. Live Resin provides patients with a powerful and richly aromatic experience with a broader sensation of effects.
"We've spent the last year focused on developing products that highlight more than THC and CBD, creating terpene-heavy, full-spectrum, and single-source oil products including our TruWax concentrate and signature TruSpectrum cartridges," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "Cannabis is an incredible medicine not only because of the medical properties of cannabinoids like THC and CBD, but because of every element of the plant. Having an opportunity to utilize an industry-leading technology like hydrocarbon extraction will allow us to expand our comprehensive product catalog and continue bringing innovative, natural, and, more importantly, effective relief to our diverse range of patients across Florida."
The first sale went to Nicole Walker, a patient in Tallahassee. Commenting on making the first purchase, Walker stated, "I am excited to be part of Trulieve's special day. As a long-time Trulieve patient and someone who benefits from concentrates, I've always known I can count on Trulieve for the highest-quality products, and now with hydrocarbon-produced concentrates, I look forward to an even better experience going forward."
Hydrocarbon extraction uses solvents to gently process cannabis, allowing for the retention of high levels of the plant's original flavor and terpene and cannabinoid profiles at a lower temperature. By protecting the delicate properties of the plant from high heat, the process creates a consumption experience most similar to smoking whole flower cannabis.
Trulieve's first hydrocarbon extracted concentrates, Live Resin in the popular Member Berry and Orchard Nectar strains, are available in .5g sizes throughout Florida. All of the extracts in Trulieve's product line will be strain-specific, ranging across Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid products.
