Canopy Rivers (TSX: RIV) (OTC: CNPOF), a venture capital firm specializing in cannabis, on Tuesday announced that its portfolio company James E. Wagner Cultivation Corp. (TSXV: JWCA) (OTCQX: JWCAF) (“JWC”) received a Health Canada license amendment permitting cannabis production in four new flowering rooms at its flagship facility in Kitchener, Ontario. The additional flowering rooms are part of an ongoing program to expand JWC’s existing production capacity. Once fully operational, the expansion will double the facility’s current licensed production capacity from 22,000 square feet to approximately 44,500 square feet. “We believe that this license amendment demonstrates Health Canada’s recognition of JWC, the quality of its operations, and its disciplined approach to expansion,” Canopy Rivers chief operating officer Olivier Dufourmantelle stated in the news release. “Through its supply agreement with TerrAscend, JWC has an active role in the Canopy Rivers ecosystem. We’ve seen that companies that work together, thrive together, and we think this Health Canada approval will enable JWC to increase production and further collaborate within the Canopy Rivers ecosystem.”
