Three major cannabis companies recently joined forces to create an unprecedented partnership that will enable the sale and cultivation of marijuana across Canada ahead of the country’s legalization of recreational marijuana next year.

Dentons represented Green House Holdings North America Inc., the North American branch of the Amsterdam-based cannabis seed company of the same name on an agripharm joint venture with Smiths Falls, Ontario-based Canopy Growth Corp., the world’s largest publicly traded cannabis company, and Denver-based National Concessions Group Inc., the largest legal weed company in the United States and one that does business as Organa Brands.
