CannTrust shares plunge after Health Canada finds violations at second cannabis facility

Health Canada has found fault with cannabis production at a second CannTrust Holdings Inc facility, a month after the regulator froze sales of several tonnes of marijuana grown at another one of its Ontario operations.

U.S.-listed shares of the Canadian grower, down 36 per cent in the past month after it suspended sales, fired its chief executive officer, disclosed a formal investigation by local regulators and said its results may have to be restated, fell another 26 per cent in early trading to $2.30.

CannTrust said it had accepted the latest findings from the health regulator into the Vaughan facility in Ontario, which received a non-compliant rating, and expects to propose a remediation plan to Health Canada.

In a decade's time, we could be looking at a global market that's capable of $50 billion, $100 billion, or even $200 billion in annual sales.

A budding crop: Growing cannabis is labor-intensive, expensive to start, but doable

Farmers and drug-enforcement agents spent decades trying to rid Illinois fields of cannabis, considered both a noxious weed and an illegal plant.

But the star-shaped “cannabis sativa” is making the transition to commercial crop, now that the state has legalized hemp production and both medical and recreational marijuana use.

Just how easy is it to grow?

Cannabis can proliferate like a weed, but producing the THC-rich flowers favored by marijuana users can be “very challenging,” according to Dan Linn, executive director of the Illinois chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. “There is a little bit of a learning curve to it.”

With Aphria rocketing on an encouraging quarterly win (and creating a much-needed tailwind for other marijuana stocks in its wake), investors are eyeing the hegemony of the fledgling sector with their appetite for risk and upside renewed.

However, one stock in particular has been grabbing the attention of pot stock believers.
