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.
