First retail order from Nova Scotia
On September 21, the company’s wholly owned subsidiary Mernova Medicinal Inc received an initial purchase order worth C$180,000 from the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation in Canada for two of its premium strains, HPG13 and Lemon Haze.
This milestone marks the imminent launch of Mernova’s Ritual Green brand of high-quality cannabis products into Canada’s rapidly growing recreational markets.
The NSLC is operated by the Nova Scotia Provincial Government and is the sole distributor of retail cannabis in the province of Nova Scotia while Mernova is a licensed producer in the province.
Entering Canada’s retail markets diversifies Mernova’s revenue streams and builds on an established and growing wholesale product sales pipeline.
