SMITHS FALLS, ON, July 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Tweed Marijuana Inc. ("TMI" or "the Company"), parent company of Tweed Inc. ("Tweed") and Tweed Farms Inc. ("Tweed Farms") is pleased to announce that pursuant to notification received today from Health Canada, licensed producers such as Tweed and Tweed Farms will be eligible to produce and sell cannabis oils pending the necessary inspections and approvals from Health Canada.
Until today the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) only allowed for the sale of dried cannabis flower. With the addition of cannabis oils to the regulatory framework, Tweed will be able to significantly increase its product offering to provide a more diverse variety for practitioners and patients.
"This is a natural sign of progression in the industry and a big step forward for patients seeking access to a variety of diverse products," said Mark Zekulin, President of Tweed. "Tweed has the largest growing facilities in the country, and is ready to move expeditiously to offer its customers a diverse line of oil extracts."
