EDMONTON — Aurora Cannabis Inc., a Canadian cannabis company, announced a manufacturing agreement with The Valens Company Inc. a manufacturer of cannabis products, to manufacture a new seasonal offering in the mint category.

Launching under Drift Turbo, the Company’s mainstream adult-use recreational brand, the new Canna Cane Mints are a two-piece hard peppermint candy containing 10mg THC (5mg THC per piece). This is the first product offering under the manufacturing arrangement, which is expected to expand in the coming months.

“We know that Canadian cannabis consumers are looking for novelty and variety, and seasonal offerings are a key approach to strategically expanding our portfolio of adult-use products,” said Miguel Martin, CEO, Aurora Cannabis. “Valens’ exceptional manufacturing capabilities complement our product line up this upcoming holiday season.
