Tweed Farms Receives Sales License and Amended Production License
SMITHS FALLS, ON, Oct. 24, 2016 /CNW/ – Tweed Farms Inc. (“Tweed Farms” or the “Farm”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth” or the “Company”) (TSX:CGC) is pleased to announce the receipt of its license to sell dried cannabis products. The sale of product is limited to other licensed producers, and in particular its sister company Tweed Inc. (“Tweed”).
The Tweed Farms license capacity has also been amended and the greenhouse facility is now licensed to produce and sell 6,000kg of dried cannabis, valid through January 13, 2017. Cannabis produced at Tweed Farms will be allocated predominantly towards the online store of Tweed, as part of Tweed’s commitment to ensuring variety, reliability and affordability for its customers.
There are economic efficiencies to using rain-recapture and natural sunlight on a large-scale. This current harvest that is underway as we speak will be the first time we’ve used the full potential of the largest greenhouse in the industry and we’re very excited to bring a harvest of this scale to market for medical cannabis patients.
CEO Bruce Linton
With this license extension, Canopy Growth Corporation has a present licensed production capacity of 12,000 kg across three diversified, world-class sites.
Here’s to Future Growth.
