Canopy River's Ontario Joint Venture PharmHouse Obtains Health Canada License Amendment

Canopy Rivers Inc. CNPOF RIV said Monday that its 49%-owned joint venture in Ontario, PharmHouse Inc., has obtained a Health Canada license amendment that enables PharmHouse to grow across its entire greenhouse. 

PharmHouse should start to increase its production following its offtake agreements with Canopy Growth Corp. CGC and TerrAscend Canada Inc. TRSSF, according to the press release.

PharmHouse has dedicated 50% of its 2020 output to these agreements and is now planning to utilize the other 50% of its capacity for its own private label brand and additional offtake agreements.
