Under CLC’s commercial sales direction, we have been able to align a healthy supply of distilled oils and kief with the needs of a diverse base of licensed producer accounts across Canada.
- The company previously announced that its distilled oils reached an average THC concentration of 90.4%, a threshold considered desirable in the cannabis industry.
