Tweed Lambastes Cannabis Consulting Firm Quantum 9 for False Testimonial

tweed_logo_smallCanadian cannabis producer Canopy Growth, which owns Tweed, issued a press release this evening criticizing cannabis industry consultant Quantum 9:

Who is Quantum 9?

SMITHS FALLS, ON, March 2, 2016 /CNW/ – Tweed Inc., a subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation (TSXV: CGC), wishes to issue a clarifying release.  A recent press release issued by a company called “Quantum 9” indicates that Tweed endorses its services. In fact, no member of the Tweed’s management team knows who Quantum 9 is.

In late 2013 a Tweed employee held a brief meeting with Quantum 9. Some years later, that individual penned a personal recommendation letter.

Tweed is proud of its accomplishments and the reputation it has built as a leader in the cannabis sector. And we have had the privilege of teaming up with real world-class leaders as we build something special.

Tweed has partnered with DNA Genetics, an award-winning powerhouse of genetics and breeding in the cannabis sphere.  We teamed up with the Canadian AIDS Society to bring education initiatives to patients seeking answers, and DSG Inc. to build the backbone of the EQUAL clinical study. We have worked closely with Indoor Harvest to explore groundbreaking aeroponics technology.  We have incredible research partners at leading Canadian universities, and most recently we partnered with cannabis icon Snoop Dogg.

Quantum 9 does not fit into that category and we do not endorse or recommend their services.

Here is the press release cited:
