The province becomes Canada’s sixth to receive reinforcements from the Calgary-based company
Nova Scotia is receiving reinforcements from Sundial Growers.
The province just became Canada’s sixth—behind B.C., Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario—to receive the Calgary-based company’s “craft-at-scale” small batch cannabis.
“Nova Scotia has done a tremendous job within the first year of legalization resulting in strong consumer demand for high-quality cannabis products,” said Andrew Stordeur, president of Sundial’s Canadian operations.
The company’s product lines, which are categorized as Calm, Ease, Flow, Lift or Spark, are each meant to address specific consumer needs. Strains currently available in 12 Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation include Zen Berry, Lemon Riot and Citrus Punch from the Calm and Lift lines. Sundial anticipates that products from its Top Leaf line will hit shelves later this year.
Nova Scotia is the only province that allows both cannabis and alcohol to be sold out of the same location.
Sundial, which has a market value of approximately $800 million, went public in August. It operates primarily in Calgary, but has a cannabis business in the United Kingdom, under its subsidiary, Sundial UK Ltd.
In early July, the company acquired Bridge Farm Group, a producer of ornamental plants, flowers and edible herbs for $115 million. The company has said that the acquisition was part of a larger strategy to produce and sell CBD internationally.
