Another exciting step towards legalization: Tweed retail is coming to Manitoba!

Submitted

Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth” or the “Company”) (TSX:WEED, NYSE:CGC) is pleased to announce that it has completed the required Cannabis Retail Organization Agreement and Cannabis Store Retailer Agreements with the Manitoba Government and today unveiled the future locations of its first Tweed retail sites in the province.

Starting October 17, adult customers in Manitoba will be able to experience Tweed, the bestknown cannabis brand in Canada, in a brick and mortar retail environment.

Residents of Brandon can look forward to a dedicated Tweed retail store to serve them, and residents of Winnipeg can look forward to two locations in the city. Grand opening events will occur in the coming months to better introduce Tweed to the community and showcase how Tweed stores will serve the people of Manitoba with the best product and education, while contributing as responsible and respectful members of the community. In addition, Tweed will operate an online store, Tweed.com, to serve the province and will announce additional Manitoba retail locations in the coming months.

“We’re excited to bring Tweed and our many partner brands to residents across Manitoba and we know our retail experience will delight and surprise,’’ said Mark Zekulin, Co-CEO & President, Canopy Growth. “Residents can look forward to visiting their new Tweed retail stores which will offer the best cannabis shopping experience while contributing to their community as a socially responsible and community-oriented business.”

Tweed retail stores will stock an industry-leading lineup of products from Tweed as well as partner brands including DNA Genetics and Leafs by Snoop, as well as other curated selections of leading cannabis products. Tweed products will also be available through Delta 9 Cannabis Inc. locations in the province.

This announcement solidifies the retail channel for the Company’s existing supply agreement to provide the Manitoba market with up to 6,500 kilograms of cannabis products over the next twelve months.

Here’s to Future (Retail Stores and) Growth.
