Tweed, a long time cannabis grower from Smith Falls ON put its sign up April 8 at the former Canadian Food Inspection Agency building on Saskatchewan Ave. and 3 St. E.

On its website, Tweed explains that since 2014 it has been producing high-quality cannabis products for tens of thousands of Canadians. Tweed is part of the Canopy Growth Corporation and operates from a former Hershey chocolate factory.

“We’ve grown, we’ve learned a lot, and we’ve fine-tuned things along the way. But with legalization and the opening of the recreational market, it feels like this is just the beginning. We couldn’t be more excited to meet you all.”

It is expected the company will soon announce an opening date.
