Pure SunFarms: A Journey Through Time
The history of Pure SunFarms is a testament to the resilience and innovation of the cannabis industry in Canada. From its humble beginnings to becoming one of the country's leading cannabis producers, Pure SunFarms has carved a unique path in the market. In this blog, we will take a journey through time to explore the fascinating history of Pure SunFarms and how it has evolved into the reputable brand we know today.
Early Beginnings and Joint Venture
Pure SunFarms was officially established in 2017 as a joint venture between Village Farms International, a leading greenhouse produce company, and Emerald Health Therapeutics, a cannabis producer and distributor. The company's foundation was built on the principles of combining Village Farms' decades of experience in greenhouse growing with Emerald Health's expertise in the cannabis industry.
Transition to Cannabis Cultivation
In 2017, Pure SunFarms boldly retrofitted a vast 1.1-million-square-foot greenhouse in Delta, British Columbia, previously dedicated to growing tomatoes. With a keen eye for innovation, they transformed the space into a state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation facility.
Through meticulous planning and a commitment to sustainability, Pure SunFarms shifted gears seamlessly. Their successful transition enabled them to become a prominent player in the cannabis market, delivering exceptional products to consumers across Canada.
By combining their agricultural legacy with a newfound passion for cannabis, Pure SunFarms stands tall as a testament to adaptability and forward-thinking vision, all while maintaining their dedication to quality and environmental stewardship.
First Harvest and Product Launch
In 2018, Pure SunFarms celebrated its first cannabis harvest, marking a significant milestone in their journey. The inaugural crop showcased the company's dedication to quality and set the tone for their commitment to delivering exceptional products to consumers.
Shortly after their first harvest, Pure SunFarms launched its initial product line, focusing on dried flower and pre-rolls. By concentrating on these classic cannabis formats, they catered to a diverse range of consumers, from medical patients to recreational users.
Brand Recognition and Consumer Trust
Pure SunFarms' commitment to transparency, sustainability, and quality standards earned them recognition and trust among consumers. By providing detailed information about their products and cultivation practices, they empowered consumers to make informed decisions about their cannabis consumption.
Their focus on delivering consistent and reliable products also resonated with consumers, helping them build a loyal customer base. As a result, Pure SunFarms became a sought-after brand in an increasingly competitive market.
Rapid Expansion and Market Reach
As the cannabis industry in Canada continued to gain momentum, so did Pure SunFarms. The company experienced rapid expansion, bolstered by its reputation for high-quality products and competitive pricing. Their strategic partnerships and collaborations allowed them to extend their market reach beyond British Columbia to other provinces across Canada.
Community Engagement and Sustainability Initiatives
Throughout their journey, Pure SunFarms has actively engaged with local communities, demonstrating a commitment to corporate social responsibility. They supported community initiatives and provided education and awareness programs on responsible cannabis use.
Their sustainability initiatives also remained at the forefront of their operations, highlighting their dedication to reducing their environmental impact while maintaining their position as a responsible corporate citizen.
Embracing Innovation and Diverse Product Offerings
Staying true to their ethos of innovation, Pure SunFarms continued to explore new opportunities within the cannabis market. They expanded their product offerings to include vapes, and oils, offering consumers a broader range of consumption options.
In fact, the 510 Vape Cartridge line has recently undergone a complete makeover.

After a year of extensive research, testing and partnering with industry experts, PSF launched a fresh lineup of best-in-class vape cartridges that maximize potency and flavour. Everything about this new lineup was carefully considered—from new hardware to new flavour formulations—to bring you the best possible experience.
This lineup features pure THC and bold new flavours. We know consumers are looking for flavour-forward vapes, so we’ve amped up the taste while maintaining a high potency (82-89% THC). Available in: Juicy Blueberry, Hawaiian Pineapple, Pink Lemonade, Sour Strawberry, Sugar Melon and Frozen Tangerine. Taste the difference and enjoy your vape until the last pull.
For a pure THC experience without the flavour, we have our popular 1g High THC vape at 89-96% THC, now using updated cartridges.
Your questions, answered.
1. What’s in these vapes?
Formulated to maximize flavour and potency, each vape features pure THC distillate infused with a custom flavour-forward terpene blend.
2. Will your new vapes taste different than your previous vape offering?
Yes, you will notice our new vapes are more flavour-forward than what we previously offered. We’ve introduced all new flavours, and revamped each formulation to maximize flavour and potency.
3. What cannabis extract do you use?
The cannabis extract in our vapes is pure THC distillate. We opt for distillate to deliver a high concentration of THC. Distillate is a product resulting from the further processing (distillation) of cannabis extract. This process increases the concentration of cannabinoids and removes any undesirable plant matter, including tannins and waxes. Flavonoids, terpenes and other compounds characteristics of the original dried flower are removed in favour of concentrating THC.
4. What extraction method do you use for your distillate?
To create the distillate in these vapes, a multi-step solvent-based extraction method is used to increase the concentration of THC, removing any undesirable plant matter. A unique flavour recipe/terpene blend is then added to create a great tasting flavour profile. The result is a high potency vape, focused on THC and bold flavour.
5. What voltage battery should I use?
For best performance, do not use a battery with a higher voltage than 3.4V to prevent overheating and oversaturation. If you are using a variable battery with variable voltage settings, we recommend a voltage between 3.0 and 3.4V and avoiding any voltage over 3.4V.
6. Can I still buy your non-flavoured high THC vape?
Yes, our much-loved High THC Distillate vape is still part of our vape offerings.
