Canopy Growth announces strategic Spanish partnership
“Entering this agreement with a large, well-recognized European partner like Alcaliber, with a proven background in controlled substances and an ability to produce plant-based medication solidifies our commitment to diversified production capabilities not just in Canada, but also new and emerging cannabis markets,” said Bruce Linton, Chairman & CEO, Canopy Growth. “This agreement gives us additional resources to aggressively enter the European market where federally permitted by law, while we continue to work to establish our own complementary production footprint for cannabis cultivation, value-add oil extraction and Softgel production in the European Union.”
Alcaliber has been granted a license to cultivate, produce, manufacture, export/import, and commercialize cannabis for medical and scientific purposes by the Spanish Agency of Medicinal Products and Medical Devices. As a result of this agreement, Canopy Growth and Spektrum will grant Alcaliber a license to use certain strains and seeds to be grown and cultivated at Alcaliber’s facilities for sale worldwide.
“Alcaliber is really enthusiastic about pharmaceutical cannabis and our agreement with Canopy Growth and Spektrum is a perfect symbiosis,” explained Jose Antonio de la Puente, CEO, Alcaliber. “There is a clear demand for pharmaceutical cannabis produced in accordance with pharmaceutical standards and the expertise we have developed manufacturing narcotic derivatives for over 40 years combined with Canopy Growth and Spektrum’s cannabis experience will be a great step forward for the industry.”
