VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Segra International Corp. (“Segra”), an agriculture technology company is pleased to announce a new partnership with the renowned cannabis breeder Parker Sullivan, and the release of his fabled cultivar “Banjo” for distribution both in Canada and international markets globally. Parker is a well-known figure in the cannabis breeding and production space and has been featured in numerous publications including Forbes.

Banjo is a potent sativa-leaning hybrid produced from breeding the classic cultivars Boost and Tangelo, and has received considerable critical acclaim in recent years, including ranking as one of Leafly’s “5 Cannabis strains to be excited about in 2020.” Bursting with citrus fragrances and subtle blueberry notes, Banjo leaves a distinct incense-like aroma in the air when smoked.
