48North Cannabis has signed a supply agreement with the Ontario Cannabis Store, the provincial wholesaler and online retailer for recreational cannabis.

The deal calls for 48North to supply 1,200 kilograms of dried cannabis from its outdoor farm in Brant County, and other products such as pre-rolls from its indoor facilities in Kirkland Lake and Brantford.

48North's Good Farm operation is expected to produce an estimated 40,000 kilograms of organic, sun-grown cannabis from more than 3.7 million square feet of outdoor cultivation space.

The company operates Good Farm, a 100-acre organic cannabis farm near Brantford and has two licensed indoor production sites, including DelShen Therapeutics, situated outside Kirkland Lake.

This supply agreement marks the company's third outdoor agreement with a provincial wholesaler for outdoor-grown cannabis.

Previously, 48North signed agreements with the Société québécoise du cannabis for 1,200 kilograms of dried cannabis, and Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis for 2,460 kilograms of dried cannabis.

So far, the company has committed nearly 5,000 kilograms of dried cannabis from its Good Farm in 2019 to the Canadian recreational cannabis flower market.

"48North is looking forward to delivering high-quality, sun-grown, low-cost and organic cannabis to some of the largest cannabis markets in the country," said Alison Gordon, co-CEO of 48North in a June 10 statement.

"Through a series of historic supply agreements, 48North has solidified its place as part of the solution in addressing the significant supply shortages facing the Canadian recreational cannabis market."
