I’m a micro-cultivator. How can I partner with Maven Brands?

Give us a call at 250-275-6063 or email us at info@mavenbrands.ca. We’d love to speak with you.

Why should micro-cultivators work with Maven Brands?

We value the craftsmanship that micro-cultivators bring to the industry and we see the struggles that micro-cultivators experience in getting their beautiful product to market. We recognize that the cultivation process is a job by itself and having to deal with a complex route-to-market on top of this can be frustrating and time-consuming. Maven Brands’ team can help with regulatory compliance, quality assurance, packaging and sales, so growers can focus on what they do best – producing some of the best cannabis in the world.

  • Contracted lab testing services
  • High speed 3.5 gram glass jar and pre-roll packaging lines
  • On-site anti-microbial service 
  • Progress payments for production

How can I benefit from Maven Brands’ demonstration micro-grow?

Our demonstration micro-grow will help cultivation teams observe how we design, build and run our craft cannabis cultivation programs. Our transparent approach will show you how to implement and operate a state-of-the-art grow that is cost-effective, simple to operate, and field-tested to produce consistent, premium craft cannabis. We are excited to build a community with people who want to learn and grow together. The sharing of collective knowledge and experience is key to the success of the B.C. craft cannabis community.

Can you share Maven Brands’ COAs?

We are proud to share our Certificate of Analysis (COA) for our first batches of Orange Tingz tested at High North Laboratories. The COA confirms Maven Brands’ cannabis meets all Health Canada requirements for recreational and medical use. These outstanding results were achieved without the use of pesticides or irradiation, underscoring Maven Brands’ commitment to quality.
