Delta 9 Cannabis – Manitoba's Cannabis Company
July 2019

Dear Reader,

Summer has officially arrived and we’re in FUN mode at Delta 9 these days! We’ve got lots going on this coming weekend to celebrate Canada Day. Stop by any of our stores on Monday, July 1, for a great t-shirt giveaway or better yet, if you’re in the Osborne Village area, stop by and check out our decaled Japanese fire truck, grab a bottle of water and chill out to some tunes from multiple bands playing all day on the D9 main stage at 478 River Ave. And if you happen to be heading out to Countryfest this weekend, stop by the Delta 9 Oasis and grab a free water bottle or charge your cell phone.

In this newsletter, we set out to de-mystify the world of rolling papers. With so many options to choose from, we’ll help you sort out the best. We’ve also interviewed two of our Cannabis Specialists to get their take on seven of our very own cannabis strains. Check out what they have to say and start your own cannabis adventure!

Enjoy the heat and have a safe and wonderful Canada Day long weekend!

See you in August!

Not all Rolling Papers are the Same

Assorted rolling papers at Delta 9 Cannabis Store

Remember the old days when your friends sent you to the store for rolling papers and told you to make sure you came back with the blue ones? Those days are long gone.

There’s a whole new world of rolling papers out there now, from vegan to organic to 24k gold, and all will take your cannabis enjoyment to a new level. Of course we’ll start with the basics, our own 100% natural, unbleached hemp Delta 9 Rolling Papers, but from there we’ve got all kinds of options for your rolling enjoyment.

The Cannasseur’s Choice

The RAW Connoisseur™ option is one of our personal favourites. Unlike anything that you have ever seen or smoked, RAW rolling papers are plant-based and contain no added chalk or dye. RAW papers are available as both RAW Classic Unbleached and RAW Organic Unbleached.

“RAW is the cannasseur’s rolling paper,” said Delta 9 Cannabis Specialist Bob Hanson. “People that love rolling joints, love RAW papers. After you've been through all the different papers, you’ll usually end up using RAW. They come in every size and shape and they’re the best of the best. RAW is the world leader in rolling papers.”

Get Wired!

Need a little help creating the perfect joint? Randy’s Wired Rolling Papers have you covered. “Randy’s papers are for people who might want a little bit of assistance with their rolling,” said Hanson. “They give you a guide wire to work with and when you get down to the roach you can hold on to it with the wire.” Good idea!

Randy’s papers come in two versions, Randy’s Regular Wired Papers and Randy's Wired Root Papers. The latter are 100% organic, vegan, unbleached hemp papers. Both use Natural Arabic Gum and American stainless-steel wire, but the Root papers are 30% thinner than Randy's Regular, which contributes to the overall joint smokability.

Easy and Exotic

If you don’t want to roll at all, why not try Amico Sweet Palm Rolling Tubes? These pre-rolled tubes are made from an all-natural non-tobacco leaf that burns slow and evenly, just the way you want it. The pre-rolled leaf not only enhances flavour, it also burns better than a premium cigar. Sweet Palms also have all-natural built-in filters made from corn husk, which cools the smoke and drops a natural sweet taste on the tip of your tongue.

Go Bananas!

You can’t get more natural than Million Bananas Wraps, which are created from real organic banana leaves. These vegan wraps are free from GMOs and other contaminants that can ruin the taste of your herb and expose you to toxins. Unprocessed and professionally cured, these banana leaves burn slow and steady with a delicious, unique taste that can’t be imitated.

Free of Everything

High Hemp Organic Wraps are the first ever hemp herbal wrap made from sustainably grown European hemp. Imported from the Netherlands, these wraps are the best alternative to the harsh toxic ingredients used in traditional wraps today. They provide the smooth taste of traditional hemp rolling papers, but the even slow burn of a traditional tobacco wrap. High Hemp Organic Wraps are certified organic, tobacco-free, GMO-free, and gluten-free, resulting in some of the highest purity ratings on the market today. Available in four flavours besides regular, including Grape Ape, Honey Pot Swirl, Hydro Lemonade and Maui Mango, High Hemp Organic Wraps have also tested positive for low dosages of CBD, making them the first of their kind!

Smoking Gold

For those special occasions (and when appearance matters), how about smoking gold? No kidding! Shine 24k Gold Wraps are handcrafted gold wraps made from the finest 24k edible gold with a hemp-blend paper base. They are also available as a Gold King Size Cone, a pre-rolled cone that simply requires you to fill it with your favourite cannabis strain. Shine provides a touch of exclusive luxury to your cannabis experience and provides you with the perfect way to celebrate your latest accomplishments, not to mention being the VIP at the party.

Joint Rolling 101

Pre-rolls such as Bliss and Spark Stix have become extremely popular at Delta 9 stores in a very short time, but with so many different rolling paper options available, many cannabis consumers still want to roll their own joints. If you want to take your rolling skills to the next level, make sure to check out Joint Rolling 101 at one of the joint rolling stations in the Delta 9 stores every Friday from 7-9 p.m. and Saturday’s from 2-6 p.m. You’ll learn more about different types of papers, rolling styles and options, filters, tips and more.

After all, If you’re rolling gold, you want to get it right.

7 Great Strains to Suit Your Fancy

Whether you’re a writer, a painter, a biker, a hiker, a movie buff, a gamer, a birdhouse maker, a stamp collector or a dancer, we’ve got you covered with a cannabis strain to suit your fancy.

Cannabis science has advanced to the point where we have strains that allow you to function normally (and happily!) in a wide variety of scenarios, especially when being “blasted” is not an option. We talked to Delta 9 Cannabis Specialists Bob Hanson and Jennifer Gingras about seven different Delta 9 Cannabis strains that might be just what you need for that “special” occasion.

Here’s what they had to say:

Bob Hanson and Jennifer Gingras – Cannabis Specialists at Delta 9 Cannabis Store

CBD SKUNK HAZE – The Happy Shopper
Sativa Hybrid
THC: 4-6%    CBD: 7-9%

BOB: “If you were to take a time machine and go back 50 years, this is exactly what Bob Marley would have smoked. This plant was originally gifted to the world with a balance of THC and CBD. CBD is a neuroprotectant that allows you to feel comfortable smoking cannabis. With high THC, what goes up has to come down. The high from this strain has a much different curve to it that allows you to have feelings of love, compassion and understanding. It doesn’t just take you from A to Z. It’s good for socializing, stimulating attention to detail, promoting creativity and reducing stress and anxiety.”

JENNIFER: “I call CBD Skunk Haze my shopping strain. It’s a nice uplifting smoke. I would recommend it for going shopping in a place that is very tense, very busy. It allows you to get through your shop on a busy Saturday and feel super relaxed at the same time. I also might use it in the morning if I wake up with a little bit of anxiety or a small headache.”


WHITE WIDOW – The Conversationalist
Hybrid
THC: 17-18%    CBD: <1%

BOB: “White Widow is a strong strain. It’s the building block for a lot of the modern strains that we smoke. It’s a very strong mood elevator. Good for optimism and positivity. It’s called White Widow because it contains an enormous amount of trichomes that give it a white frosty look. Personally I find the white strains lack a lot of flavour, but they make up for it with their strength. I would use it for working out, mood elevation and combating symptoms of depression. It will make you happy, relaxed and creative.”

JENNIFER: “White Widow is a Brazilian sativa landrace strain mixed with a heavy south Indian indica. It can provide you with a powerful burst of euphoria. It’s a very uplifting strain that stimulates conversation and creativity but because it’s a hybrid it also allows you to stay balanced. You’ll feel the sativa first and the indica will kick in later. It has an earthy wood flavour.”


KALI MIST – The Imaginator
Pure Sativa
THC: 17-19%    CBD: <1%

BOB: “They call Kali Mist the ‘happy’ sativa. When you consume this strain it’s all about giggling and having fun. This strain will also help you tap into your inner Salvador Dalí.”

JENNIFER: “Kali Mist is a pure sativa, so you have to make sure to start low and go slow, just to see how you feel. It can be used during the day for a blast of uplifting energy without having any fatigue when you come down. Many find that it also stimulates appetite.”


BLUE VENOM – The Overachiever
Indica Dominant Hybrid
THC: 12-14%    CBD: <1%

BOB: “Blue Venom is a cross between Blueberry and White Widow and I love both of those strains. A lot of people don’t recognize the name Blue Venom, but they know Blueberry and White Widow. Blueberry is an old strain, a form of the actual skunk plant that has a kind of fruity berry essence to it. It exceeds everybody’s expectations. It’s heavier than a lot of the strains that they smoke. And it has a longer onset time for cannabis. Different people have different levels of tolerance. It surprises a lot of people and they end up consuming less of it.”

JENNIFER: “Blue Venom offers a fast-acting, long-lasting experience that usually results in full body relaxation and slowly produces a deep sedation. So you might be happy, focused and talkative early but sleepy later. You might start a movie but you might not finish it. It’s very relaxing, good for getting to sleep and staying asleep. And it has a nice flavour!”


SUPER LEMON HAZE – The Creative Genius
Hybrid
THC: 14-17%    CBD: <1%

BOB: “Super Lemon Haze is often considered the most intelligent cannabis strain available. It’s really geared towards writers, creators, designers and illustrators and they love it. And the high often last lasts upwards of 3-4 hours.”

JENNIFER: “I agree with Bob. And Super Lemon Haze is a “super” popular cannabis strain. Consuming it makes you energetic, creative and happy. Medical patients use it to help treat symptoms of depression and anxiety and to reduce chronic pain. It can also stimulate your appetite. And like the name says, it’s super lemony with a zesty, citrussy smell and a little bit of a sweet taste. Think Lemon Head candy.”


AK-47 – The Energizer
Sativa Dominant Hybrid
THC: 14-15%    CBD: <1%

BOB: “AK-47 is one of the oldest strains around. It has a very unique flavour and provides a very clear-headed high. It’s definitely energizing, so you need to be ready to direct that energy. Most consumers put their newfound energy into straight-out laughing, so it’s good for fun group outings.”

JENNIFER: “AK-47 delivers a steady, long lasting cerebral buzz. It keeps you mentally alert and engaged in activities. It’s good for being creative and doing social activities. It’s a sativa dominant hybrid so it will make you feel happy, but you’ll also be able to get through a movie. It has enough indica in it to relax the body but you won’t fall asleep. It’s good for someone who is new to cannabis because it relaxes you quite nicely.”


BLACK DOMINA – The Heavy Hitter
Indica Hybrid
THC: 10-12%    CBD: <1%

BOB: “The heaviest of the heavy. Black Domina is one of the hardest-hitting strains available and generally produces an almost tranquilizing effect. Many people think it’s a 25 percent THC strain but it’s usually only between 10 and 12%. It has one of the highest levels of myrcene in it, which seems to enhance the absorption into your lungs like very few other strains do.”

JENNIFER: “Black Domina would probably be ideal for late night use. It will provide an overwhelming feeling of relaxation for most people, a very lazy feeling. The myrcene and the THC work together to provide a heavier high. People say they have used it for pain relief, depression, stress, anxiety and insomnia.”


VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE
