For those of us who drive, you know that there are usually three types of gasoline you can put in your car when filling up. Drivers can go with the typical, widely used 87 regular, or they can move up a few points to the higher octane 91 supreme.
The higher octane versions provide a more efficient burn in the combustion chamber and give better fuel economy for the drive.
The same is true for cannabis. Those who enjoy our favourite plant can always opt for the most common of experiences or move up a few notches for something special.
The craft cannabis company 91 Supreme is that something special. Herbal Dispatch sat down with one of the founders of the company to find out more.How did 91 Supreme get started?
There are many different kinds of cannabis users in the world. We are a collective of cannabis connoisseurs that understand the complexities of the plant to a science, while bearing a fixation for unique flavour profiles.
We began our journey with a passion for craft cannabis cultivation as medical patients under the early Health Canada regulations. Access to cannabis alone was quite difficult, so the best option was to visit our local dispensaries.
Here is when we noticed that verified quality cannabis products in the market with discreet logos and packaging was non-existent. Being family oriented individuals we understood that it was important to present a lab tested product with exceptional class and discretion.
In addition, we stayed observant to the market and realized that there was little diversity of “terpenes” (flavour essence) available, which we truly believe is an essential aspect to the effects of cannabis. Being avid cannabis connoisseurs, we have further developed our passion into being able to craft some of the highest quality hydrocarbon extractions, while garnering thousands of unique flavour profiles through technology and craft.
We use a proprietary blend of solvents and lab test our products, as well as quality controlling them internally to ensure we only offer the best.
In the early stages of our research and development, we were very focused on honing our skill with hydrocarbon extractions. Finding clean, quality, stable, yet flavourful shatter in variety was very hard to find here in Canada. In addition, the cannabis community was beginning to shift toward concentrates because of the many benefits they seemed to offer, such as vaporization and the ability to better capture flavour profiles. We pride ourselves behind stable, clean, and flavourful shatter.
Fast forward to one-year later after mastering the art of shatter, we began to win several awards with our Live Resins. This is where we process a wet-live plant through hydrocarbon extraction, leaving a sugary-golden waxy product that is packed with flavour.
Only naturally, we got even better and are now constantly innovating new products such as our HTFSE/HCFSE/Caviars (High terpene full spectrum extraction/High cannabinoid full spectrum extraction).
Through elaborate and calculative processing, we are able to transform clean cannabis flower into a liquid and crystal-like mixture of terpenes and THCa diamonds. Aromatic, visually appealing, easy to work with, and fully effective.
Finally, merchandise. We work with a rare group of talented individuals, some of whom have a background with fashion design. We have had several people who are not necessarily part of the cannabis community, but purchase and love our clothing. And of course, the cannabis community has shown great appreciation toward our merchandise. With respect to the positive feedback, we continue to drop more non-cannabis gear for everyone to enjoy, such as silicone placemats shaped like gas tanks, and toques that even celebrities can rock discreetly to keep their ears warm while supporting the cannabis lifestyle.
Our creative artistry and genuine passion for varieties in flavours is what truly drives all of our products forward.

Is the name 91 Supreme an homage to the premium gasoline drivers can get at gas stations?
That is correct. If you have ever gotten your gasoline filled, then you must heard this before “87 regular”? Well, being oil processors ourselves, we want to ensure that we never offer regular. In fact, here in Canada there are 3 common grades of gasoline: 87 Regular, 89 Plus, and 91 Supreme being the top grade. Our approach captures that concept perfectly, we strive to only process at the 91 Supreme grade.
What inspires you about cannabis?
The variety of the plant and the community inspires us.
Cannabis is a plant, but more importantly it is the core to an amazing community of loving, sharing, passionate, and intelligent individuals. The creative products we now specialize in is our expression of what we were searching for and expecting from the market.
Can you provide some insight as to where cannabis products are headed? We had flower, hash and now high potency concentrates like shatter and resin. What’s next?
Cannabis products are ever evolving and with legalization right around the corner, I feel that the Canadian industry has already begun taking off.
As a technology-based company, we hope to continue discovering new unique phenotypes and flavours. We have been leaders here in Canada with hydrocarbon extractions, as you can see with our perfectly blended terpene and THCa blends of caviar. We intend to bring Caviar to another level, prep your pallets.
What products does 91 Supreme have coming out on the horizon?
We intend to launch a few new products that include a CO2 based rechargeable vaporizer. The solution we will be putting into our ceramic-coil based atomizers consist of only THC Distillate (derived through CO2 Extraction), 100% Natural MCT oil, and raw cannabis-derived terpenes.
We noticed a lot of vaporizers in the marketplace using raw THC distillate, but none that used real cannabis-derived terpenes. So it was only fitting that we share our unique roster of flavour profiles towards the vaporizer market. These pens will be launching in the beginning of May.
Also, we are planning to launch a number of other products that should launch shortly after our vaporizer. Stay tuned!
*Hint: Terp mixing on another level
Is 91 Supreme planning on being a part of legalization and if so, how?
Yes. We have positioned ourselves in the market to become a producer of cannabis flowers, which will prepare us to becoming a licensed extractor when the climate is suitable. In addition, we continue to document and focus in our research, technology, and creativity that will further substantiate our presence in the cannabis market.
