“The cannabis resin we get from HollyWeed will be used for our current offering of oils and softgels, as well as our future advanced manufacturing products,” said Bruce Linton, co-CEO of Canopy Growth.”This is an opportunity for Canopy Growth to build a strong partnership with another high-quality Canadian company.”

The two companies expect the first shipment of cannabis to be used for extraction will take place in fall 2019.

Headquartered in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canopy Growth is the one of the world’s largest diversified cannabis and hemp companies, offering distinct brands and curated cannabis varieties in dried, oil and softgel capsule forms.
