From ideation to commercial success
Unlocking every possibility
The landscape in retail cannabis is rapidly changing. Identifying the best market positioning and distribution for your brand is critical to its success. From idea development to the store shelf or online cart, we’ve got you completely covered.
Getting the chemistry right
At Peak, every product we develop undergoes a rigorous process of scientific review and testing. This ensures it can meet both regulatory standards for quality and safety, as well as our customer’s expectations for performance and consumer appeal. To achieve this, we have industry-leading experts in product innovation, formulation and quality assurance. Our expansive, truly state-of-the-art facility is equipped with a research lab and R&D licensing.
We specialize in
Formulation & Validation
Peak will collaborate closely with you to develop formulations and products that will meet the needs of your customers. Our scientific knowledge and expertise in product development, validation, analytical testing and packaging ensure consistent performance and regulatory compliance with Health Canada.
Sourcing & Integration
Peak’s team will work with you to source the ideal inputs, or integrate your existing supply chain, to bring your product to life. Whether cannabis flower or extracts, flavours and ingredients, emulsification technology, or packaging, we will work with your existing resources, or source the best quality materials, required to turn your concept into a commercial success.
Commercialize & Deliver
Peak will support your product registration with the regulator, Health Canada, facilitate product submissions to secure listings with Provincial wholesalers, and coordinate shipments to distributors and private retailers.
Formulating and elevating
Peak can elevate your cannabis-infused canned and small bottled beverages to new heights. We have a dedicated 15,000 sq ft beverage facility with an automated canning line that can process up to 100 cans per minute. Our specialized mixing process can accommodate an extensive range of beverages – from brewing teas to beers, juices, colas, and water-based seltzers. Emulsification technologies ensure the formulation of precisely-dosed, great tasting, and unique beverages for your customers to enjoy.
Extracts & Concentrates
Bringing out the best
Our fully-certified hydrocarbon extractor unlocks the potential of cannabis to create premium products for you. Whether processing cured or fresh-frozen biomass, hydrocarbon extraction utilizes solvents to draw off a much higher percentage of cannabinoids and terpenes than other methods, including supercritical CO2 or ethanol. The result is a flavourful, aromatic, and highly-concentrated output that can be further refined into a variety of cured and live resin product formats including:
- Terp Sauce
Each of which has its own unique physical characteristics that showcase the extracted cannabis.
Post-extraction processing capabilities allow us to turn freshly extracted resin into distillate for vape cartridges and pens. Our in-house filling capabilities enable us to accommodate multiple styles and sizes of vape products, with inputs ranging from pure distillate to live resins to terpene blends.
The finer points of fast-dissolving cannabis-infused drinks
Developed by our in-house team of chemists, our process allows cannabis distillates and isolates to be combined with a wide range of bases in precise concentrations. These unique CBD and THC products are odourless, flavourless, and rapidly dissolve into liquid to meet specific consumer needs. We can also package powders in a variety of formats to create novel products and uses.
Small packages that deliver big
In addition to beverages we have the ability to formulate and package concentrated liquid formats including oils, tinctures and drink drops. Packaging options include glass and PET bottles with a variety of dispensing options to create unique products that meet consumer needs.
Fast-acting solutions in skin care and cosmetics
We can create fast-acting, potent, cannabis-infused creams, lotions, gels and oils for wellness and cosmetic use.
With an emerging focus on the inclusion of cannabinoids in health and wellness products, Peak has proactively focused on developing capabilities to infuse and produce a variety of topical transdermal cosmetic products. Formats can range from liquid-based serums (lotions, creams, gels, massage oils) to balms and even granular products like salts and other bath products. This diversity of packaging formats and product consistencies greatly enhances the capabilities to bring cannabis-infused topicals to market.

Marketing and Brand Support
How consumers relate to your product is essential to building brand loyalty. To create the right chemistry, we’re big fans of collaboration. Peak works directly with your marketing and product teams to develop and manufacture products that hit the mark with your customers and bring your brand to life. We can also connect you to our network of experienced agencies to support the execution of your retail strategy to further drive business.
Bring us your ideas. Our team will work closely with you to prototype, test, and develop novel and exciting products. This spans making recommendations on ingredients, infusion technology, or packaging to optimize your existing formulations, working with suppliers on recipes you already have, or starting from scratch. This is the stuff we thrive on!
Provincial Boards and Product Listings
We’ve launched dozens of cannabis brands into market. This gives us an intimate understanding of the process for submitting products and securing those critical listings. We work with you to build a successful submission package for provincial distributors. This extends to connecting you with category buyers to share your product information, negotiate pricing, and guide you through the numerous regulatory, quality, and commercial milestones required to receive purchase orders.
Our distribution network and sales licensing agreements extend across Canada. The success of this comes down to having a reputation for integrity with provincial boards that review and regulate which products are available online, or in licensed cannabis retail stores.
