True Leaf Secures Licenses from Health Canada
True Leaf Cannabis Inc., a subsidiary of True Leaf Brands Inc., secured licenses from Health Canada to cultivate, process and sell cannabis for medical purposes pursuant to the Cannabis Act for its 18,000 square foot True Leaf Campus facility in Lumby, British Columbia.
The license allows True Leaf to begin cultivating, processing and selling medical cannabis from its facility immediately and to produce alternative cannabis products such as edibles, topicals and capsules. True Leaf Campus sits on a 40-acre site of industrial zoned land wholly owned by True Leaf.
“Today marks an important milestone for True Leaf as becoming a licensed producer helps support the continued development of our therapeutic pet care products,” said Darcy Bomford, founder and chief executive officer of True Leaf. “Our facility is now licensed and meets EU GMP and HACCP standards. This is required for the ‘Cannabis 2.0’ market in Canada and also opens the door to export cannabis to the booming European market.”
During the licensing process, the company entered the pet industry with True Leaf Pet, a natural pet care brand with a suite of hemp- and CBD-based pet products now sold in 3,500 stores across North America, Europe, and Asia.
