As part of Zenabis’ growth strategy, they will begin supplying Shoppers Drug Mart with dried cannabis and eventually cannabis oil and other products online.

Current pharmaceutical regulations prohibit pharmacies, like Shoppers, from selling medical cannabis in physical storefront locations, but Zenabis chief revenue officer David Lluncor said the trust medical cannabis customers have in pharmacies means there will be plenty of demand for online offerings.

Both companies expect to start selling within a month, but are still waiting to hear about an inspection date before Zenabis will be apply to supply Shoppers.

In the meantime, the companies will work on defining how much Zenabis product Shoppers will sell.

The expansion will require Zenabis to expand its current workforce of 400 to 2,500. CEO Andrew Grieve says 400 of those jobs will be in the New Brunswick facility.

“There will be a mix of entry level jobs as well as jobs for people with a very high level of education,” Grieve said.

In addition, the expectation of the new Health Canada regulations allowing value-added products such as edibles, means the company will be looking to further develop its product line.
