Net income climbed to C$74.9 million, or C$0.22 per share, from C$11 million, or C$0.01 per share a year earlier. On a diluted basis, the company reported a loss of C$0.38 per share.

Canada legalized the recreational use of marijuana in October.

A highlight of the third quarter was the closing of a C$5 billion investment in Canopy Growth from the liquor giant Constellation Brands Inc (NYSE:STZ). In addition, Canopy Growth expanded into the UK and Peru and announced plans to set up in New York State, marking its first foray into the US hemp market.

Canopy Growth said its intellectual property portfolio grew to 32 issued patents and more than 140 patent applications, ranging from technology to genetics to clinical formulations.

Cannabis shipments for Canopy Growth totaled 10,102 kilograms and kilogram equivalents, the company reported.
