514 Cannabis
A new Montreal-grown cannabis brand
Brand platform

Context

Great White North Growers (GWNG) is a private producer of high quality cannabis. Proudly based in Ville d'Anjou, a borough of the island of Montréal, GWNG leverages a state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing system allowing producers to cultivate premium cannabis multiple times in a year.

Challenge

On 17 October 2018, cannabis became legal everywhere in Canada.

Our mandate was to build a cannabis brand from scratch while considering all the subleties around the culture, use, selling and promotion of cannabis in Quebec.

Insight

Among all the cannabis brands sold at SQDC, there is only one that was born and managed by Montrealers. This unique brand will be unvealed by GWNG. What if we take advantage of this differentiating factor by borrowing some Montreal's culture codes?

The solution

514, the first ever 100% Montreal-based cannabis brand.

The brand name 514 refers directly to its origins. Products are named after the different boroughs of Montreal, photos are taken by local photograpers, derived products are created by local artisans. We have demonstrated that 514 is more than an area code, it's the reflexion of Montreal expertise.
