A Quebec medical marijuana producer is offering a kosher line of products in time for one the High Holidays on the Jewish Calendar.
Hydropothecary says its processed medical marijuana products have been granted kosher certification by the Ottawa Vaad HaKashrut. The news comes right in time for Rosh Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, which is celebrated from September 20 to 22.
Kosher certification is given to foods and consumed items that conform to kashrut or Jewish dietary law.
“Kosher certification is important to Hydropothecary because it reflects our emphasis on rigorous testing, independent third-party oversight and our focus on easy-to-use product innovations. As the only medical marijuana company in Canada with current kosher-certified processed products, we take great pride in having the support of the Council for Kashrut,” said Hydropothecary CEO and co-founder, Sebastien St-Louis, in a release.
The company’s kosher products include its ready-to-consume activated marijuana powder product line, Elixir cannabis peppermint oil, and the H2 line of milled products.
Hydropothecary claims it holds the only kosher certification currently granted to cannabis products in Canada.
