New Brunswick has 2 Federally Licensed Marijuana Producers

According to the Health Canada website, New Brunswick has 2 licensed Marijuana producers

  • Organigram , 35A English Dr, Moncton, New Brunswick
  • International Herbs Ltd (Zenabis) , 12 Comeau Ave, Atholville, New Brunswick

Organigram is a Publically traded company under the trading symbol OGI. Organigram received their license on March 26, 2014 and have had a steep learning curve to get to where they are today. The company had a history of being chronically underfunded and suffered from bad leadership in the form of arrogant and unexperienced CEO Denis Arsenault.  They finally got rid of Arsenault after lab testing on their product revealed that they had been using banned pesticides. For an Organic company (Organigram) to use banned pesticides is an oxymoron. Hopefully with the tanking of Denis Arsenault (the moron in Oyxmoron) the company will be ready to produce clean product for the planned recreational market in 2018. Organigram operates a 30,000 square foot building and are working on a 100,000 square foot expansion of the facility.

Zenabis is a private company with Rumored ownership out of British Columbia. They received their Health Canada license on August 18, 2017 (recently). Only time will tell if they can learn from the mistakes of Organigram. Hopefully with that fact that they are a private company, they can focus on building a sustainable business rather then a pump and dump stock scheme like their provincial counterparts. Zenabis is operating out of a 400,000 square foot building, who knows how much of that is actually useable.
