California-based cannabis producer State Flower focuses on its craft approach to cultivation, using first-class genetics at an Envirocann certified facility in San Francisco. “This announcement is yet another example of TerrAscend delivering on its U.S. expansion plans, providing ever-growing U.S. exposure to Canopy Rivers’ and TerrAscend’s shareholder base,” Canopy Rivers president and CEO Narbe Alexandrian stated in the news release. “We think the acquisition of State Flower will allow TerrAscend to capture important mindshare in the U.S. through a strong, consumer facing brand.
