Rubicon Organics Launches 11 New Products, Releases Second Annual ESG Report

Rubicon Organics Inc. ROMJF ROMJ launched eleven new products in Quebec under the Simply Bare Organic and 1964 Supply Co. brands. This doubles the number of items available in the province, adding to Rubicon Organics' presence in Quebec.

Rubicon Organics has added two new offerings under the Simply Bare Organic brand in Quebec:

  • BC Organic Duct Tape available in 3.5g format is the first Duct Tape cultivar in the legal market in Canada. This cultivar is a cross of two strains - Original Glue and Do-Si-Dos with aromas of gas, pine and chocolate.

  • The Sélections 3x0.5g pre-rolls are an extension of the Sélections line currently in 28g format in the province. This pre-rolled offering features a rotation of certified organic cultivars, hand-rolled in hemp paper. The 3x0.5g Selections cultivar will change every two months, starting with the popular BC White Rntz Organic.

In addition, three of the brand's online exclusives are now available in stores across Quebec: BC Organic Bubba Pink 3.5g dried flowers and 3x0.5g pre-rolled, and BC Organic Lime Mi'jito 3.5g dried flower.

Rubicon Organics secured six new store listings for the 1964 Supply Co. brand.

  • 1964 Supply Co. Bleu Nuit 5x0.5g Pre-Rolls are now available in all stores after a successful online presence. This is the first pre-roll for 1964 Supply Co. available in stores in Quebec.

  • Following the strong performance of 1964 Supply Co. 3.5g Lebanese Hash, Rubicon Organics has introduced its Flower + Lebanese Hash 1x1g Infused Pre-roll in stores.

  • Sour Cookies 3.5g from 1964 Supply Co. was introduced in stores as of September 2022.

  • Two of the new listings will be under 1964 Supply Co. Secret Menu. The Secret Menu 3.5g and 5x0.5g Pre-Rolls feature rotational cultivars from outside of the core 1964 Supply Co. portfolio.

  • In addition to the Secret Menu rotational SKUs, 1964 Supply Co. has launched BC Buds 28g as a rotating product in stores in the Quebec market. This 28g product features a rotating selection of base cultivars from 1964 Supply Co. that were previously unavailable in Quebec.
