Quebec cannabis newcomer poised to start growing at massive facility

Cannara Biotech Inc. announced Friday evening it has received a cannabis licence from Health Canada, allowing it to start growing at its facility in southern Quebec amid a tightening market already crowded with big Canadian producers.
