Aurora Cannabis (TSX:ACB) announced its Aurora Sky facility obtained a sales license from Health Canada.

As quoted in the press release:


The Company also announced today that it has received a sales license from Health Canada, permitting the sale of cannabis softgel capsules produced at its state-of-the-art Aurora Vie facility located in Pointe-Claire, Québec. Aurora and Capcium Inc. (“Capcium”), the Montreal-based manufacturer that specializes in high-volume softgel encapsulation have already commenced production of softgel capsules, which are targeted at the medical, wellness, and adult consumer use markets. The Company anticipates softgels to become a high volume, high margin product within all of its target markets. The Company holds a 19.99 per cent ownership stake in Capcium and is Aurora’s exclusive manufacturer of cannabis softgel products in North America.

“These new sales licenses are a game changer for Aurora, dramatically increasing product availability and positioning us well to serve the rapidly growing domestic and international cannabis markets,” said Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora. “With adult consumer use sales beginning in Canada today, these additional licenses enable Aurora to rapidly scale-up production to service the high growth anticipated for this new market. As the first of our “Sky Class” facilities, Aurora Sky is substantially differentiated from traditional indoor and greenhouse grow facilities because of its use of advanced technologies and automation that deliver industry-leading yields. This allows us to consistently produce an abundant supply of high-quality cannabis and derivatives at sustainably low production costs, anticipated to be well below $1 per gram.”
