Aurora Cannabis Launches New Cannabis Product Line - Aurora Frost

May 30, 2018

 

EDMONTON, May 30, 2018 /CNW/ - Aurora Cannabis Inc. ("Aurora" or the "Company") (TSX:ACB) (OTC:ACBFF) (Frankfurt: 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) today announces the launch of new product line called Aurora Frost. This new dried cannabis product line represents the highest potency offering of any Aurora product launched to date at over 35% THC.

 

 

Aurora Frost products are produced from premium whole flower. The products, generally known throughout the industry as kief, consist primarily of trichomes, the resinous glands rich in active pharmaceutical ingredients, including terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD.

 

Aurora's in-house technology team successfully developed a new and proprietary technology used to efficiently produce high volume, GMP compliant, Aurora Frost products, based on a process that finely trims the trichomes from the cannabis flower.

 

Beginning today, Aurora Frost is shipping in convenient, child-safe, certified glass bottles. Products are sold in one gram increments, priced at $35 per gram ($25 per gram for compassionate pricing patients). Like all Aurora products, Aurora Frost comes with publicly available third party independent laboratory results on potency, terpene profile, and contaminant analysis.

 

"Successfully developing a proprietary, fine trimming and GMP compliant technology needed to produce these high-quality products at commercial scale, provides us with a remarkable advantage in addressing this niche of the cannabis market," said Terry Booth, CEO. "Aurora now makes this high potency medical cannabis available to its patients, reflecting the Aurora Standard of innovation and patient care."
