CALGARY, Sept. 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Sundial Growers Inc. (Nasdaq: SNDL) ("Sundial") continues to expand its reach from coast-to-coast with its first completed shipment of high-quality cannabis to Nova Scotia's alcohol and cannabis retailer.
"Nova Scotia has done a tremendous job within the first year of legalization resulting in strong consumer demand for high quality cannabis products," said Andrew Stordeur, President of Sundial's Canadian operations. "The Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) retail experience is grounded in social responsibility and consumer education, which has positioned Nova Scotia as the leader in per capita consumption. The Sundial brands look to support this success and build momentum in this province by offering consumers the premium products and exceptional cannabis experiences they deserve."
Sundial is offering its high-quality cannabis products in 12 NSLC locations, including one dedicated cannabis store. Nova Scotia is the only province to sell both cannabis and beverage alcohol in the same stores.
For Sundial, this is the sixth province to receive its 'craft-at-scale', small batch, high-quality cannabis. Sundial is now available coast-to-coast with products already in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.
The Sundial brand offers five product lines: Calm, Ease, Flow, Lift and Spark. Each line is focused on meeting specific needs with tailored product offerings that provide a consistent consumer experience.
The first Sundial products available to consumers in the region will be 1g and 3.5 g containers of Zen Berry, Lemon Riot and Citrus Punch from Sundial's Calm and Lift product lines. In addition, Sundial expects products from its award-winning Top Leaf brand will be available to consumers in Nova Scotia by the end of the year.
Sundial proudly crafts pioneering cannabis brands to Heal, Help and Play:
