Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE:CGC)(TSX:WEED) received a new license from Health Canada permitting it to grow cannabis at an outdoor site in northern Saskatchewan. Hours after receiving the license, the first cannabis cuttings were planted at a 7 million sq. ft. (160 acres) secure cultivation field in the province, one that is patrolled by drones (kidding – no drones, promise.) The new license expands Canopy Growth’s diversified Canadian footprint and complements its existing indoor and greenhouse facilities to provide a leading balance of facilities to produce low cost input materials for value-add products, while ensuring more sophisticated growing operations for in-demand flower products. “Our team has outdoor, at-scale cannabis expertise gained from over a decade of hemp farming experience, including Canopy’s 4,000-acre hemp operation executed last year, the extract of which is bolstering our CBD supply for the medical and recreational markets,” said Mark Zekulin, President and co-CEO, Canopy Growth. “At this stage in the summer planting season we view this as a pilot and ramp up project for outdoor cannabis cultivation, though the team will do everything it can to deliver low cost yields this year.”
Sugarmade Inc. (OTC:SGMD) recently announced that with California’s legal cannabis market expected to grow “more than 18 percent annually to hit $5.6 billion by 2020” and the hydroponics market on “a CAGR of 6.5%” from 2018 to 2023, California-based Sugarmade, Inc. has positioned itself at the confluence of two great market movements. The state was the first to buck the trend of prohibition when, in 1996, it passed the Compassionate Care Act, which legalized medical cannabis. In 2016, it made adult use legal as well, and, on January 1, 2018, sales of recreational pot officially began. Now, with demand for cannabis set to rise rapidly, attention is turning toward the supply sector and the cultivation and storage technologies like those now available from SGMD. The company’s partnership with Plantation Corp. has given it a toehold in the cannabis storage space, and its master marketing agreement with BizRight Hydroponics Inc. gives it immediate scale, expected to be around $30 million per annum.
