VAUGHAN, ON, Oct. 10, 2018 /CNW/ – CannTrust Holdings Inc. (“CannTrust or the “Company”) (TSX: TRST), one of Canada’s leading licensed producers and most trusted brands of medical cannabis, today announced (with a week left before legalization) a fourth recreational brand – Peak Leaf – that will be exclusively available in British Columbia.
Come October 17th, BC consumers of legal age will be able to experience a collection of cannabis products inspired by nature. This curated set of strains are rooted in the sights, smells, and sensations of the outdoors. Rich, leafy greens, earthy aromas, and fruity flavours offer a balanced approach to cannabis.

We saw a gap in the BC market for a brand that celebrated our innate connection to nature and think that Peak Leaf will fill this void,” said Brad Rogers, President, CannTrust. “Our focus is on providing a variety of cannabis options, specially curated to meet the needs of all age-legal Canadians. This is another example of how we are living that focused approach and really putting our consumers at the center of everything we do.”
