San Rafael 71 is a recreational cannabis brand launching a pop-up on Ossington this weekend. The pop-up at 9 Ossington Avenue starts today and runs from September 14th – 30th. San Rafael 71 owner MedReleaf, is a licensed Canadian producer of cannabis products recently acquired by industry biggie Aurora Cannabis. The brand is inspired by California in 1971, when a group of smokers sought out wild pot plants at 4:20 in the afternoon.

The San Rafael pop-up includes live music, art, games and a vintage record shop. Last night’s kick-off party featured a comedian, 4-20 beer brewed in collaboration with Amsterdam Brewery, and DJ Skratch Bastid.

In the alley behind the coin laundry and Rotate This, just north of Home Hardware’s warehouse, is the large site formerly home to the Ontario Bread Factory. Now it’s the site of Supreme Cannabis Company’s offices.

Currently, the building, 178R Ossington, looks like it’s undergoing construction. There are numerous trucks and delivery vehicles there during the day, but it is an office space.

Supreme Cannabis is a publicly traded Canadian company and owner of medical cannabis grower 7ACRES. The company has supply agreements with a few provinces so expect them to grow into the large space in the alley behind Ossington and stay awhile.
