"This is a great value add for our loyal clients, and delivers an enhanced overall experience. It's easy to use, fast and convenient. Customers often spend more time visiting our website from their mobile phone or tablet than they do from their desktop. The app puts ordering right at their fingertips, and lets us communicate and engage with them even more effectively."
Latest Innovation from Fast-Growing Cannabis Company
Aurora, which began commercial operations in January, 2016, has set the fastest pace of growth in Canada's burgeoning medical cannabis sector. The Company announced on September 6, 2016 that it had surpassed 7,700 active registered patients, less than eight months after first sale of product. The new mobile app is the latest innovation from Aurora, which on May 24, 2016 became the first Licensed Producer to offer same-day delivery at no additional cost, a service provided to its customers in the Calgary and surrounding communities.
On August 23, 2016, Aurora announced the completion of the design, engineering, and tender process for the construction of the first phase of a 600,000 square foot expansion. When completed, the high-technology, fully automated greenhouse is expected to be the most advanced cannabis production facility in the world.
"I am delighted with our ability to lead the way in the cannabis sector, not only through providing patients with medical cannabis of the highest quality and consistency, but also by bringing valuable, industry-leading innovations to our customers," said Terry Booth, CEO.
Aurora's wholly-owned subsidiary, Aurora Cannabis Enterprises Inc., is a licensed producer of medical marijuana pursuant to Health Canada's Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) and operates a 55,200 square foot, expandable, state-of-the-art production facility in Mountain View County, Alberta, Canada. Aurora trades on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the symbol "ACB".
