Mauve et Herbes, is the brainchild of William Fournier. Will’s early career began at a grow store, where he gained hands-on experience and knowledge about the intricacies of cannabis cultivation. This was a formative period for him, as he met the local CANNA rep and developed a relationship with the brand. This time laid the foundation for his understanding of the plant and its needs.  He then obtained a degree in plants production technologies and in landscape architecture. The brand is based in Quebec and is known for its commitment to quality, innovation, and sustainable practices. Mauve et Herbes is not just a cannabis producer; it’s a CANNA research hub, a knowledge center of excellence, and a testament to the power of collaboration and knowledge sharing in the cannabis industry.


The Brand Story

The Genesis

The inception of Mauve et Herbes dates back to 2019 when Fournier, while working as a master grower for a licensed producer in Montreal, envisioned creating his own cannabis facility. He transformed an old horse barn into a small indoor facility on his newly purchased agricultural land on the north shore of Montreal.

The Journey

Initially intended to be a micro facility, Fournier opted for a standard license, allowing for a larger indoor facility, an hybrid greenhouse, and two outdoor fields. His partnership with CANNA Canada, a company specializing in nutrients and growing substrates, led to the development of the CANNA Canada Research & Knowledge Center.

The Present

Today, Mauve et Herbes is more than a cannabis producer. It’s a place where research is conducted, product testing is carried out, and knowledge is shared. The brand is known for its unique cannabis genetics and commitment to product development for the consumer market.

The Future

Fournier envisions the knowledge center hosting industry seminars, workshops, tours, and meetings, and potentially collaborating with universities and other license holders. He also plans to explore new and innovative practices through the brand’s highly controlled indoor environment, vertical growing system in the hybrid greenhouse, and extensive outdoor field.

Product Uniqueness

They are not pushed by a huge machine in the background that forces them to cut the corner on timing / quality. Each strain in the competition were selected for their strong nose bag appeal and their taste. Fournier has a crush on diesel profile, the Ripped Off Runtz is a mixed of a fruity / berries and diesel. The First Class Funk x Grape Gasoline is a mixed of mint and gasoline. The Where’s my bike is a mixed of haze/citrus and subtile notes of petrol.
