VAUGHAN, Ont. -- CannTrust Holdings Inc. says its products being returned by Alberta government s cannabis wholesaler and online retailer total about $1.3 million.
The Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis agency announced the move on Wednesday after Health Canada suspended CannTrust s licences to produce and sell pot.
In July, the AGLC placed a hold on its inventory of CannTrust products as a precautionary measure as the federal regulator investigated allegations of unlicensed growing at the company s Pelham, Ont., greenhouse.
CannTrust disclosed this week it received a notice from Health Canada indicating its authority to produce cannabis, other than cultivating or harvesting existing lots or batches, and to sell pot, had been suspended.
The Ontario government s cannabis wholesaler and retailer said in August it was returning products valued at roughly $2.9 million to CannTrust.
