Dooma Wendschuh Founders Update December 14, 2018
It’s the end of the year and a great time to reflect on what we've accomplished. Here's a short summary of where Province stands today:
Province Brands is patent-pending on the formulation and process for the world’s first beers BREWED from cannabis in place of barley.
Province is currently using this process to brew Cambridge Bay Imperial Pilsner, a premium pilsner (which contains alcohol) by fermenting food-grade hemp (a fully legal type of cannabis). Province Brands has a supply agreement with the Canadian Hemp Farmers’ Alliance to supply hemp at CAD $55/ton (compare to Barley which commonly sells for CAD $600/ton).
On October 17, 2019 Canada will allow the sale of marijuana infused beverages. Province will use it’s patent pending process to brew alcohol-free beers from the marijuana plant which intoxicate using marijuana or its phytocannabinoids.
Province Brands’ marijuana beers will have a rapid onset thanks to an “accelerant technology”.
Province Brands is currently developing a “decellerant” technology to shorten the duration of effect of edible cannabis. This is technology Province intends to license to other companies making edibles or other beverages.
Province is developing an ultra-premium line of beers designed to give a sensation which is less like the high of marijuana and more like the pleasant sensation of drinking alcohol.
Province Brands is under construction on a 123,000 SF Building which will be the world’s first cannabis brewery.
Funded capacity: 20,000 HL per year.
Currently raising CAD $30,000,000 to increase funded capacity to 175,500 HL per year. At this capacity the facility could generate CAD $130,000,000 per year.
Province Brands has a world class team of 10 scientists & engineers.
3 Ph.D. Scientists
Collectively they have been published 55 times in peer reviewed journals
Collectively they have been named as inventor in 99 granted patent applications
Province Brands has signed LOI’s to provide co-packing services for several other licensed producers and beer breweries to make nonalcoholic marijuana beers for them when it becomes legal in October 2019.
