CALGARY, Aug. 21, 2019 /CNW/ - Moving forward with the goal to be in all Canadian provinces by the end of 2019, Sundial Growers Inc. (Nasdaq: SNDL) ("Sundial") has successfully entered the Manitoba market with its recent shipment of high-quality cannabis.
"I'm thrilled to say that Sundial products are now available across the whole of the Prairies. We are proud of our western roots, but we are very much committed to growth," said Andrew Stordeur, President of Sundial's Canadian operations. "Adding Manitoba brings us closer to our goal of offering high-quality cannabis to consumers from coast to coast."
All five cannabis retail chains in Manitoba have placed orders for Sundial products, the first available being Zen Berry from Sundial's Calm series and Lemon Riot from the Lift series. Both are available in 3.5-gram packages with Lemon Riot also being offered in a 1-gram option. Future shipments will add products from the Ease, Flow and Spark series as well—product lines designed to meet specific customer social, spiritual and recreational needs.
As part of the recent approval by Health Canada to amend Sundial's Standard Cultivation and Standard Processing licences, Sundial has added 34 additional purpose-built modular cultivation rooms. Each of these rooms provide the optimal growing environment for consistent high-quality batches of cannabis and nearly double the number of existing rooms in operation. The additional supply will also help meet market demand in provinces, such as Manitoba.
Sundial cannabis is now available in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.
