CALGARY, Aug. 21, 2019 /CNW/ - Moving forward with the goal to be in all provinces by the end of 2019, Sundial Growers Inc. (Nasdaq: SNDL) ("Sundial") has successfully entered the Saskatchewan market with its recent shipment of high-quality cannabis.
"Quality is at the core of our processes here at Sundial. We're excited to provide superior products to Saskatchewan and continue to build our customer loyalty across Canada," said Andrew Stordeur, President of Sundial's Canadian operations. "We have ambitious, but realistic, plans to be in every province by the end of this year."
In Saskatchewan, licensed cannabis producers can sell directly to retailers, rather than through a board, making this a unique Canadian market.
The first product shipped to Saskatchewan is Zen Berry, under Sundial's Calm product line. Zen Berry is an indica-dominant Shishkaberry strain, currently available in 3.5 gram and 7-gram containers. 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 Saskatchewan.
Sundial cannabis is now available in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.
