Biome Grow Inc (CSE:BIO) (OTCMKTS:BIOIF) is bringing its cannabis products to Manitoba, the company announced Wednesday.
The company has won a license for the retail sale of cannabis in the province and plans to distribute its select dried flower and pre-rolls to retailers from its wholly-owned Nova Scotia cultivation facility, Highland Grow.
The news comes hot on the heels of similar approvals in Saskatchewan and New Brunswick, bringing the company’s total distribution area to five provinces, also including Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia.
The reason for the expansion into Manitoba, Toronto-based Biome said in a statement, is the same as for its previous territory increases: positive feedback from consumers and dispensary operators.
“We are happy that our high quality, premium flower and pre-rolls have which have proven very popular with discerning consumers in Atlantic Canada and Saskatchewan will now be available to the 1.4 million people of ‘Friendly Manitoba’,” said Biome Grow CEO Khurram Malik
The company saw its shares climb 4% to C$0.39 on Bay Street and 7.5% to $US0.30 in New York.
