Sundial is headquartered in Calgary. They have a production plant in Olds, Alberta. The licensed producer (LP) has four brands on the legal market. These brands differ in their price point, approach, packaging and niche.

Sundial

The mainstay brand. They started out growing cucumbers! They now leverage their agricultural expertise to bring you a vast line of cannabis products.

“Our Canadian operations cultivate small-batch cannabis using an individualized “room” approach, with 470,000 square feet of total space.’

Sundial, Press Release

Sundial divides their products into 5 main categories:

Calm, Ease, Flow, Lift, Spark

Dry flower and pre-rolls are sold in colourful, cylindrical, plastic containers. Vaporizer products are sold in cylindrical containers that you push up. Oils are sold in colour-coded cylindrical plastic bottles with an assorted dropper. The medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil used is coconut-derived.

Note: Vaporizer products by Sundial are full-spectrum, CO2 extracted oils.

The naming scheme revolves around subjectively evocative actions, that are then colour-coded. Cool tones, such as blues, are used for more sedate actions. Warmer tones are used for more… physical activities.

The Grasslands is always greener

Grasslands

Uncomplicated weed. Three products. Several sizes. When you don’t know what you want, but you know you want it to be good. The products found in Grasslands could come from any of the brands described above – it’s a surprise every time!

Dried flower is sold in child-proof, zipper-style baggies. Big baggies. The smallest bag available is 5 grams. Their pre-rolls are 1 gram.

Fun fact: they have 14g and 15g bags, as well as 28g and 30g bags.

Only in Canada would we have both Metric and Imperial packaging sizes for weed.

They name the product in the container based on the generic “Sativa”, “Indica” and “Hybrid” naming scheme.
