The company obtained the license for its beverage facility in late November, and said it has been working on bringing the production process to commercial scale. 

Canopy is enthusiastic about the underlying beverage science and its ability to scale production and introduce high-quality cannabis beverages to the market, the company said in a statement.

"Canopy has had seven weeks to work with THC in the brand-new beverage facility to scale processes and IP it has developed in the R&D environment," CEO David Klein said in a statement.

"In order to deliver products that meet our customer's high standards we are electing to revise the launch date while we work through the final details."

Canopy did not disclose a date by which the beverages will reach the market. The company said an update will be issued alongisde its third-quarter results.
