The people have spoken:
Insa named most-awarded brand in High Times Magazine’s first-ever Massachusetts Cannabis Cup.
Since its founding in 2013, Insa has taken a handcrafted approach to its cannabis cultivation and product innovation. Now, we are proud to announce that cannabis consumers across Massachusetts selected Insa as the most awarded brand in High Times Magazine’s Cannabis Cup across the competition’s 11 categories. Products came from 45 local brands, and Insa was a finalist in six categories, including two first-place awards for its Clementine Sativa Vape and its Double Caramel Sea Salt Chocolate Bar.
Insa’s Clementine Sativa Vape earned top honors in the Sativa Vape category. Clementine is an energizing sativa-dominant strain that is made by crossing Tangie with Lemon Skunk. This strain is loved by consumers for its sweet taste and fragrant citrus aroma. Insa’s Clementine Vape are available in 500mg and 1000mg Carts, 500mg Darts and 350mg Pens.
Insa’s Double Caramel Sea Salt Chocolate Bar earned first place in the Edibles: Chocolate category. This delicious creation, made with pure ivory chocolate sourced from Europe, is a top-seller at Insa’s dispensaries. The chocolate is caramelized during conching, a mixing process conducted at high heat, to bring out the natural color and flavor of salted caramel. This artisanal process yields a final product with a unique color and creamy flavor, and is infused with bits of salted caramel sugar for a pleasant crunch. Each bar of Insa Double Caramel Sea Salt Chocolate contains 5mg of THC per piece.
“For the very first time in Massachusetts, High Times Magazine asked cannabis consumers to judge the state’s range of products, and we are honored that people across Massachusetts rated Insa products so highly,” said co-founder Pete Gallagher. “We have an amazing team that strives to develop cannabis products that help people have better days. To be judged as the Commonwealth’s most awarded brand overall is a true honor,” he added.
Insa is acclaimed throughout the Bay State for its world-class standards of craftsmanship, high-quality ingredients, and innovation. Insa operates retail locations in Springfield, Salem, and Easthampton, MA, and can be found at other fine cannabis retailers across Massachusetts, or via delivery to select Boston neighborhoods through Insa.com.
