Curaleaf Acquires Northern Green Canada, NM Cannabis Seizures

Of the Northern Green Canada deal, Matt Darrin, CEO of Curaleaf, says that “It’s got a lot of different benefits to it, like ensuring this supply of this high-quality indoor flower that we have a number of different outlets for throughout the world. …  But also from a margin standpoint, we view this as very margin-accretive to bring this as part of our vertical supply chain.”

In an interview on the April 22nd episode of Trade to Black, Matt Darin shares details on Curaleaf’s recently announced closing of a $16m acquisition of Northern Green Canada. The company has claimed that the acquisition will “amplify” its strategic advantage in European markets overseas including Germany, Poland, and the United Kingdom and give emerging oceanic markets a foothold. Matt goes on to explain exactly how they expect this to support Curaleaf’s pursuit of a global cannabis market projected to generate $55 billion in sales by 2027.

A legislative agenda was revealed last week by the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) regarding a number of domestic policy issues.  The agenda was introduced to “reduce criminalization and incarceration through sentencing reform, legalizing cannabis, expunging records, providing restorative justice, and an accelerated and reformed clemency process for people with marijuana-related convictions.”
