Canopy Growth Corp., the largest of Canada’s publicly traded marijuana companies, is preparing to export its expertise through a new Brazilian partnership.
Canopy’s Bedrocan subsidiary and its Brazilian partners have created a new company to import proprietary varieties of cannabis into Brazil — a country with a population of 200 million.
Initially, Bedrocan Brazil will import cannabis products into Brazil from Canada or the Netherlands.
Eventually, the company will establish domestic cultivation facilities in Brazil using Bedrocan’s genetic material and cultivation technology.
