April 1 Alert: Tweed R&D Discovers Exciting Genetic Mutation

SMITHS FALLS, ON , April 1st 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - The Research and Development team at Tweed Inc. (Tweed) (TWD.V) have been busy in the lab analyzing an exciting new discovery in the cannabis plants from the latest harvest. When growing marijuana, the environment and the inputs can apparently become a part of the outputs in ways that have never been observed before. The lab results show that the medical marijuana plants have melded with leftover chocolate residue and spontaneously formed a new cannabis terpene, the aromatic compounds that give plants distinct aromas.

"We dubbed it A1-Chocolatene, because of the teardrop shape and the pleasant chocolaty smell it gives off," said Katya Boudko , Tweed's Head of R&D.

This discovery comes on the heels of the Company being named one of the Canada's Most Innovative by Canadian Business Magazine. Even though the new molecule appeared on its own, Tweed's ability to isolate it and study it wouldn't have been possible without the Company's in-house lab. Sometimes, you need that extra ingredient to be able to peel back the foil and figure out what a discovery like this actually means for the scientific community.

While this could be regarded as a first for cannabis, spontaneous changes like this aren't completely unfounded. Gueuze style Belgian beer owes its distinct taste to the buildings it is aged in. A1-Chocolatene could be the same sort of scenario.

"Our best guess is that the years and years of chocolate production somehow got into the atmosphere here at 1 Hershey Drive. The cannabis plants are breathing it in for weeks on end and they're mutating," said Boudko. "At first it looked like any normal aromatic terpene but once we looked at it under the microscope, the slope and pointed top became evident and we knew we were working with something magical."

Tweed's newest discovery does unfortunately mean that the patent-pending Terpography section in the Yield Guide is out of date. Moving forward the Company probably won't make the updates… because…well… it's April Fools day .
