Canadian cannabis producer Tilray affiliate High Park Company has signed an agreement with the Yukon Liquor Corporation to produce and distribute cannabis products in the territory. It’s the first company to come to terms to serve the region. According to a CBC report, Yukon will receive a 50 kilogram shipment once the federal reforms take effect and officials have the option of purchasing another 350 kilograms in the first year.
“Our goal is to deliver on the high expectations that Canadians have of us by cultivating and distributing a portfolio of world-class adult-use products that will lead the market in quality, excellence and craftsmanship.” – Adine Fabiani-Carter, High Park chief marketing officer, in a press release
Fabiani-Carter told the CBC that the company would first ship flower and oils.
“We will be selling everything we are allowed to under the regulations that are coming out by Health Canada. What you would think of cannabis in its most standard forms – so, the bud of the cannabis flower, whether it’s in a dry flower form or put into a pre-roll.” – Fabiani-Carter to the CBC
Although the date for legalization has shifted since it was announced last year, lawmakers expect the reforms will take effect this summer.
