PHOENIX, Dec. 10, 2019 /CNW/ -- Harvest Health & Recreation, Inc. (CSE: HARV, OTCQX: HRVSF) ("Harvest"), a vertically integrated cannabis company with one of the largest and deepest footprints in the U.S., today announced the availability of a series of advanced, high-quality vaporizers at Harvest stores and select retailers in Arizona, Colorado and Maryland. The product line, from award-winning brand Evolab includes Chroma™, Alchemy™ and Delta 8, all of which utilize a distillation process resulting in an extract that is 100% cannabis-derived, free from cutting agents using instrument grade CO2 — considered a clean extraction method.
Harvest recently announced its commitment to creating, high-quality and trusted vaporizer products under the rigorous CannApprove™ testing protocol. CannApprove™ testing represents a set of stringent seed-to-sale testing protocols that products must pass before they are allowed on store shelves. The protocols apply to ingredients, components, manufacturing processes and packaging and ensure that products are free from potentially toxic ingredients like vitamin E, PEG, PG, VG and MCT oils.
Evolab is a 10-year industry veteran and award-winning brand offering thoroughly tested and high-quality products by utilizing innovative extraction and science techniques. With expanded availability, Evolab will come in several varieties offering consumers vapes with varying potency and taste options.
- Chroma™: The award-winning cannabis oil is a blend of cannabinoids and a unique hybrid blend of cannabis terpenes that provide a consistent, reliable, and, most importantly, effective experience. An oil that delivers – without additives, artificial terpenes, or cutting agents. Chroma™ is available in high THC and high CBD formulations, creating a consistent experience consumers trust.
- Alchemy™: Alchemy™ offers a selection that brings the plant's entire range of elements to life with full fidelity using 75% cannabinoids and 25% strain-specific terpenes. Using a highly refined CO2 extraction process that's solvent and hydrocarbon free, the finely calibrated balances of THC and CBD provide a lushness of experiences that perfectly mirrors your favorite strain. Alchemy™ is available in Indica, Sativa, Hybrid and High CBD varieties.
- Delta 8: The newest cannabinoid oil from Evolab, Delta 8 utilizes the unconventional Delta 8 isomer. Similar to the better-known Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 THC is a naturally occurring compound found in most cannabis plants. However, Delta 8 THC typically only appears in very low levels. While Delta 8 THC can be found naturally occurring in most cannabis plants, it typically doesn't appear in quantities sufficient to extract at scale. The Delta 8 oil is derived from a simple and elegant heat and filtration process that modifies regular Delta 9 THC. In much of our internal testing, Delta 8 is very similar to 'THC Classic' but it has slightly different effects - which our testers generally describe as more upbeat, energetic and productive.
Evolab products are now available at select retailers in Arizona, Colorado and Maryland and will be available in California, Florida and Las Vegas in the upcoming months.
