Illustrating the impact of an impressive brand evolution, Tweed’s Kush Mints has been nominated for a 2023 Karma Cup in the Hybrid Flower category, as it has demonstrated its consumer appeal with Tweed Kush Mints 28g being the fourth best performing flower SKU in Canada in Q1 FY20241. Celebrating cannabis innovation, creativity, and quality, the Karma Cup Awards recognized Tweed’s Kush Mints for its unique cross between Animal Mints and Bubble Kush. Sourced from a private library and demonstrating Tweed’s commitment to flower innovation, Kush Mints boasts a high terpene content near 2.5% — setting it apart from the competition — and has driven 73% of the 28g segment’s growth nationally in the first three months of 2023.
The Tweed brand is also a finalist for a Grow Up Award in the Brand of the Year category. The Grow Up Awards honor the best cannabis growers, retailers, and suppliers throughout Canada. Tweed was selected as a finalist following a national resurgence which saw the brand rise to the #8 rank within the total flower segment of the Canadian adult-use cannabis market in Q1 FY2024, moving up 19 places year-over-year.
“Tweed has long been a staple in the cannabis landscape, and we have worked hard to restore and enhance its quality and leadership in the category,” said Dave Paterson, President, Canada Canopy Growth. “Throughout the brand’s evolution, we have focused on the needs of consumers and elevated our quality. These honors are exciting evidence of the progress and power of the Tweed brand.”
