Pure Sunfarms, a JV of Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc (OTCMKTS:EMHTF), received the approval of SLGA (Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority) for its packaged and branded dried flower products. The company commenced the shipment of dried flower products to Saskatchewan.
Consumers get access to dried flowers
Saskatchewan, the fifth largest province in Canada, accounts for 6% of cannabis sales nationwide. The open market model for cannabis in this province will be introduced in this province by September. SLGA removes the cap on licensed retailers count in Saskatchewan and allows consumers access to dried flower products.
CEO and President of Pure Sunfarms, Mandesh Dosanjh, said the company is pleased to enter the market in Saskatchewan following the success in Alberta, Ontario, and British Colombia. The company will offer its superior quality products at affordable rates to more Canadians, given a growing network of retailers in Saskatchewan.
Expansion of retail stores to promote growth
CEO of Emerald, Riaz Bandali, said the company will expand its retail stores soon in provinces like Ontario and Saskatchewan to strengthen its growth. He further said the introduction of innovative products and expanding to new markets demonstrates its leadership in the cannabis industry.
