MONCTON, NB, June 20, 2019 – Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX VENTURE: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI), the parent company of Organigram Inc. (the “Company” or “Organigram”), a leading licensed producer of cannabis, is pleased to announce that it has now shipped its first cannabis products to the province of Quebec, following purchase orders placed with the Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) and following registration with the Autorité des Marchés Publics.
A true national player in Canada’s legal adult use recreational cannabis marketplace, the Company has now distributed products for sale to all ten Canadian provinces.
“We are pleased to now officially ship our products coast to coast,” says Greg Engel, CEO, Organigram. “Our national reach means brands such as Edison Cannabis Co. and Trailblazer are available across the country, offering a range of cannabis options for legal adult recreational cannabis consumers.”
Organigram’s currently available product portfolio includes value, mainstream and premium product offerings across the categories of dried flower, pre-rolls, and oils.
“Product innovation continues to drive our growth strategy and our ongoing expansion,” explains Engel. “As we look ahead to the legalization of edibles and extracts, we are excited to have the national network in place to offer Canadians access to new thinking and new products as they explore Cannabis 2.0, and a new cannabis experience.”
As this initial shipment was made subsequent to the Company’s third quarter ended May 31, 2019, this shipment, together with additional shipments expected to be made to Quebec in the current quarter, will be reflected in the Company’s results for the fourth quarter ending August 31, 2019.
