Dr. Page stated, “We strive to provide exemplary and scientifically rigorous services and we are pleased that the quality of our work – and the contribution of our hard-working staff – has been recognized by our customers.

Our tagline is “The Science of Better Cannabis”™ and these awards recognize that we live by this in our daily work. I am proud of the achievements of our team and see significant growth ahead for the Company both in Canada as the market shifts to a recreational adult-use framework later this year, and globally, as the demand for Canadian medical cannabis continues to grow.”
