Business Highlights

  • Continued enhancements to the Company's cannabis flower quality, leveraging new genetics, cultivation procedures and post-harvest processes, have enabled the Company to consistently produce new high-quality cannabis flower products. Flower innovations have performed well in market.
  • Distribution of high-quality cannabis flower was instrumental in the Company becoming a top 3 supplier of cannabis flower to British Columbia cannabis stores during Q2 FY2024, up from 11th in Q2 FY2023.4
  • Illustrating quality and consumer appeal of flower being produced by the Company, Tweed Kush Mints was nominated for a 2023 Karma Cup award in the Hybrid Flower category.
  • Canadian medical business delivered 4th consecutive quarter of revenue growth. Wana gummies are available to the Company's registered medical cannabis patients in Canada through the Spectrum web site.
  • The Company is executing a plan to re-introduce the Wana brand in the Canadian adult-use cannabis market including planned new product introductions and active outreach to key retailers in 2H FY2024.

Strong demand is expected to accelerate growth in international medical cannabis markets

  • Responding to market opportunities, the Company started shipping 5 new SKUs to international medical markets in Q3 FY2024. Additional product SKUs are expected to be launched over the coming months.
  • Company is increasing focus on the growing Australian medical cannabis market; Canopy Growth's Australian medical cannabis business has generated 10 straight quarters of revenue growth.
  • Successful attainment of EU-GMP certification of the Kincardine, Ontario cultivation facility bolsters the Company's ability to supply international medical cannabis markets.

Expanded Storz & Bickel product portfolio with introduction of new Venty portable vaporizer

  • Venty vaporizer features adjustable airflow up to an industry leading 20 liters per minute maximum, short 20 second heat up time, precise single degree temperature control from 40C to 210C and fast USB-C charging.

  • In July 2023, Jetty6 introduced its award-winning vape products in Colorado and achieved #3 market share in the solventless vape cartridge category in that state just 3 months after launch7. In August 2023, Jetty expanded its product offering in California with the launch of a family of OCal Certified (California cannabis comparable-to-organic certification) solventless vapes.
  • On November 1, 2023, Acreage8 debuted its Superflux craft cannabis brand in New Jersey. The initial launch will introduce four limited-edition, small-batch flower strains crafted with bespoke genetics, including Red Carpet Runtz and Silly Rabbit.

On November 3, 2023, we received a letter from the staff of the SEC (the "Staff") in which the Staff indicated that, despite the Reorganization Amendments, it would object to the deconsolidation of Canopy USA once Canopy USA acquires Wana, Jetty or the Fixed Shares of Acreage. We are currently assessing additional structural amendments to Canopy USA that would facilitate the deconsolidation of Canopy USA from the financial results of Canopy Growth, and intend to maintain active discussions with the Staff on such changes.
