Canopy Growth Corporation is a world leading diversified cannabis company. We operate a collection of diverse brands and curated strain variety, supported by over half a million square feet of indoor and greenhouse production capacity, partnered with some of the leading names of the sector.
Tweed is the most recognized marijuana production brand in the world. It has built a large and loyal following by focusing on quality products and meaningful customer relationships. Tweed doesn’t just sell marijuana, it facilitates a conversation about a product we’ve all heard about but haven’t met intimately yet. It is approachable and friendly, yet reliable and trusted. As marijuana laws liberalize around the world, Tweed will expand its leading Canadian position around the globe.
Bedrocan is the epitome of medical-grade cannabis. Bedrocan BV pioneered medical cannabis in Holland through decades of selection and refinement, leading to standardized, whole bud cannabis strains that patients can rely on. Bedrocan Canada supplies the same standardized strains to the Canadian market through exclusive licensing rights to the American continents, an arrangement it will also enjoy for all future genetic advancements. Due to its consistency over time, Bedrocan’s strains have been used in clinical research in seven European countries. That commitment to research didn’t stay on the east side of the Atlantic – Bedrocan Canada recently launched one of the largest clinical cannabis studies in the world, the EQUAL Study, to evaluate quality of life before and after medical cannabis use.
Data Driven Indoor Production
Tweed is housed in the famous former Hershey Chocolate factory at 1 Hershey Drive, the campus comprises 40 acres of land with over 500,000 sq. ft. of available space. Tweed occupies 168,000 sq. ft. of licensed production space, plus office space where Canopy’s head office drives the vision forward. It is a data-driven, automated and lean operation, housing an R&D facility, oil extraction infrastructure, and in-house lab. Precise climate controlled spaces for each stage of cannabis production, from clone to cured bud, allows for the highest quality and widest variety of product in the sector.
REFINED STANDARDIZED HARVESTS
Bedrocan Canada operates to the refined and unwavering processes developed over decades in the Netherlands. At over 50,000 square feet, no variable is left unchecked to ensure the stabilized genetics produce standardized harvests time and time again. A second facility serves as a distribution-only location, where product imported from the Netherlands has historically been distributed to the Canadian market.
Tweed Farms is the largest marijuana-producing greenhouse in the world, certainly legally that we’ve ever come across, with over 350,000 square feet of licensed cannabis production space. The scale and the passive processes allow the Farm to produce environmentally friendly cannabis at extremely competitive cost per gram. The Farm combines traditional and state-of-the art agricultural techniques, using the natural power of the sun and recycled rainwater to nurture genetically identical plants produced in the on-site tissue culture propagation lab.
Snoop Dogg is one of the most revered figures in music, entertainment and more recently, a business pioneer in the cannabis sector. Over a respected career that stretches 25 years, his repertoire has turned him into a cultural icon across mediums. Snoop and business partner Ted Chung recently launched online media platform MERRY JANE, the definitive cultural destination for news and original content. He is also the first celebrity to release a branded line of products, “Leafs By Snoop,” which includes hand-weighed flower, concentrates, and edibles. Via Casa Verde Capital, Snoop has also made a foray into the venture capital model for early stage start-ups. Tweed is pleased to partner with Snoop, a true global powerhouse.
DNA Genetics have won awards in every category in the Cannabis Cup, the world’s preeminent cannabis competition. They are, simply put, global breeding and growing legends. DNA has partnered with Tweed to ensure all that knowledge and experience is put to good use as Tweed and Tweed Farms continue to iterate through their growing and curing processes to arrive at nothing short of perfection. Working with DNA, Tweed will be breeding new strains for customers that simply aren’t available anywhere else in the world, and bringing the best of existing DNA genetics to Tweed customers, bred and grown to the DNA standards the world expects.
Driven by a leadership team consisting of former legislators, public health experts, and medically-focused entrepreneurs, AusCann is a leader in Australia's emerging medical cannabis industry. Working with Canopy's subsidiaries Tweed and Tweed Farms, AusCann is in the process of developing world-class production standards that they will use to grow clean, consistent medical strains. Australian patients will have access to a wide array of AusCann products in 2017.
Indoor Harvest is developing aeroponic agriculture solutions for the cannabis industry. The Texas-based company is already working with CityFarm at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to revolutionize the efficiency and accessibility of agriculture. Working with Tweed’s R&D team, Indoor Harvest is developing IP that both companies can leverage and license throughout the world.
CannScience is an R&D biopharmaceutical company established to conduct research and development of therapeutic products based on the extracts from medical cannabis. CannScience is developing proprietary technologies that will be the future of medical cannabis delivery, and through its 33% stake in the company, Canopy is happy to be along for the ride.
Our accomplishments to date are a result of our diversity. From horticultural experts to storied cannabis growers – Harvard MBAs to Cambridge law graduates – Ottawa Valley tech icons to Compassion Club pioneers. With no existing roadmap to success in the cannabis sector Canopy created its own, valuing IQ along with expertise, bringing together the types of people who go looking for opportunities to innovate. We were the first cannabis company to go public, the first to launch diversified growing platforms, and the first to bring together two major licensed cannabis producers under one roof.
We are proud of our accomplishments, and are always looking for the next first.
Here’s to Future Growth.
