KITCHENER, Ontario, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- James E. Wagner Cultivation Corporation (“JWC” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: JWCA), a licensed producer of cannabis under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”), is pleased to announce its continued commitment to medical dried cannabis through its participation in Canopy Growth Corporation’s (“Canopy Growth”) curated CraftGrow program (the “Program”). The Program is part of the Spectrum Cannabis online marketplace that brings together high-quality cannabis products. JWC’s product will launch within the already established CraftGrow program on November 1, 2018 and will be available online for purchase at SpectrumCannabis.com.
Participation in the Program is an excellent opportunity for JWC to increase the availability of its dried cannabis products, produced using its proprietary, state-of-the-art aeroponics growth system, GrowthSTORM™.
“JWC is excited to be offering product through the CraftGrow program,” said President and Chief Executive Officer of JWC, Nathan Woodworth. “Canopy Growth Corporation is a world leader in cannabis, and we look forward to our collaboration bringing JWC's aeroponic cannabis to the patients of Canada!”
Through use of Canopy Growth’s vast platforms, including its extensive distribution infrastructure, JWC’s aeroponically-grown dried cannabis products will be more readily accessible across Canada to medical patients. The first product expected to be offered in the Program is JWC’s high-CBD strain “Cannatonic”. Additionally, JWC anticipates that several of its THC-dominant strains will also become available through the Program.
