The shipment marks the Company's first foray into Alberta's recreational retail market.
Today's shipment is just the beginning of the Company's relationship with the AGLC. Looking ahead, 48North has agreed to supply 2,400 kilograms of sun-grown outdoor organic cannabis from Good:Farm and 60 kilograms of its high-quality craft indoor-grown cannabis from its northern cultivation facility, delshen. Today's shipment pertains to the 60 kilograms from its indoor facilities.
"48North is looking forward to sharing our high-quality cannabis with Alberta consumers. Without question, Alberta's legal cannabis market is amongst the most robust in the country and we look forward to sharing our high-quality indoor-grown craft cannabis from delshen and our outdoor-grown organic cannabis from Good:Farm with Albertan consumers," said Alison Gordon, co-CEO of 48North.
