Cannabis company with major Langley operation calls it 'benchmark' moment

Zenabis, a cannabis grower with a major operation in Langley, now has distribution deals in all provinces and territories, the company announced on Wednesday, March 24.

Robert Maxwell, Zenabis’ vice president of sales and marketing, said the company has concluded agreements with Cannabis NL, a division of the provincially-owned Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation, and the government of Nunavut, “completing its goal of extending the availability of its Namaste and Re-Up products to all Canadian provinces and territories.”

Shipments under the new agreements will commence in April.

Maxwell called it “a benchmark moment” for the company.

“We continue to portray what a lean, nimble company that grows really, really good cannabis can achieve,” he commented.

Zenabis operates three licenced Canadian cannabis facilities in Langley, Atholville, New Brunswick and Stellarton, Nova Scotia.
