Vancouver – West Blvd Cannabis culinary cannabis facility will undertake research and development of new product concepts in its test kitchen.

The location will host on-site palatability testing for new product development and educational events. The company and facility are available to collaborate with other cannabis companies to conduct market research for product validation through methodical consumer and stakeholder surveys.

West Blvd Cannabis was founded by Connor McNamee, Nico Sto Tomas, Brad Quevillon and Cayli Weinberg.

WBC is preparing to raise investments to further develop R&D and manufacturing capabilities. It will debut its first brand at legal cannabis retailers this spring: a specialty combustible brand Choklit Park, in partnership with local growers in B.C.

The company’s THC and CBD cooking oils, teas and gummies, and other products, are currently in R&D and are expected to launch in summer 2022.

“We’re ecstatic to share this new facility with the Canadian cannabis industry. It’s been years in the making, and to finally be testing and developing unique products on-site feels surreal,” said Connor McNamee, chief executive officer. “As we approach the Series B funding round, we’re excited to showcase our innovation and represent our collective vision of the cannabis and cuisine world.”
