Alberta returning $1.3 million worth of CannTrust product

CKTB - NEWS - Cannabis joint

More trouble for a cannabis company with a greenhouse in Pelham.

CannTrust officials say they have been notified the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission will be returning all the company's products, worth approximately $1.3 million.

This comes after the Ontario Cannabis Store did the same thing back in August, sending back around $2.9 million worth of product.

CannTrust officials note Health Canada has not ordered a recall in regards to any of the company's products.

A company release states, "CannTrust remains fully focused on achieving complete regulatory compliance. The Company is committed to rebuilding the trust of all stakeholders, and looks forward to delivering high quality, innovative products to both its patients and customers in the future."

We also learned earlier this week that Health Canada was suspending the company's licenses to sell or grow new cannabis.

This comes as CannTrust continues to face problems after compliance issues were flagged at the Pelham greenhouse in June, including allegedly growing pot in unlicensed rooms.

Health Canada officials also say they found issues at a greenhouse in Vaughan.
