Canopy Growth to Invest $20 Million to Fund Socially Responsible Local Initiatives

Meet the Tweed Collective, a new kind of 4/20 Commitment from your Friends at Tweed

4 years and $20 million to foster social, responsible community development across Canada.

4/20/2018 (obviously)

SMITHS FALLS, ON, April 20, 2018 /CNW/ – Tweed Inc. (“Tweed”) is proud to announce the funding and creation of the Tweed Collective – an initiative founded on the principles of progress, growth, and community development.

Over the next 4 years, the Tweed Collective will invest $20 million in social, responsible initiatives that will transform where and how we live in meaningful ways. Call it our very own 4/20 commitment.

From the start, Tweed was founded on the belief that cannabis can be a force for good. Building on this belief, we at Tweed are proud to have already made meaningful contributions to the health and development of the communities we call home.

Through the Tweed Collective, we are honoring the legacy of advocacy, progress, and community building that this important day in the cannabis community represents.

We started at home by supporting the local theatre and the community garden in Smiths Falls. With Tweed expanding across the country with new production sites and retail stores, home now stretches coast to coast and our contribution has to expand along with it.

“Cannabis legalization is an important social change and it is incumbent on us as leaders in the industry to renew our commitment to social, responsible community building all across Canada.”

The Tweed Collective is looking for artists, creators, builders, and partners with bold ideas for their community, to come share their vision at

Let’s Grow Good Together.
