As Canada is primed as a global leader and first mover in the cannabis industry, BlissCo is uniquely poised in the rapidly growing multi-billion dollar market and in various international markets as cannabis regulations progress.
BlissCo, founded in 2013, is a Canadian vertically integrated cultivation, extraction and distribution focused cannabis brand that earned its Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) license to cultivate from Health Canada on March 29, 2018.
BlissCo's state-of-the-art production facility, located in Metro Vancouver, is purposefully designed as a hub for research, cultivation, processing, extraction, packaging and distribution.
Now with the ACMPR license to cultivate, BlissCo will commence its operation to harvest premium cannabis within its' urban facility in Metro Vancouver. BlissCo also has a multi-year supply agreement in place with a Canadian Licensed Producer of characteristically sun-grown premium medicinal cannabis to purchase supply in large volumes (news release). This premium bulk cannabis will be brought to our secure and pristine facility in British Columbia for processing and then be packaged for sale and distribution to our growing patient list when BlissCo has appropriately received its license for sale.
BlissCo was founded with the assistance of a team of advisors, including medical and naturopathic doctors, has intentionally engaged with the medical community to understand how to contribute to improved patient health with medicinal cannabis products. A large part of our strategy for growth centres on how to securely integrate and collaborate with the healthcare system.
