Management Commentary

“Q2 was pivotal for the Company as we began commercial production in the second phase of our Hamilton site and expanded our product line for the Grower’s Circle,” commented Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD. “The product quality feedback from the Grower’s Circle has been overwhelmingly positive, confirming that patients appreciate having access to premium certified organic cannabis, an underserved segment of the market.  With double digit quarterly growth in Europe and construction nearing completion in Canada, the team continues to deliver on our ambitious business plan with executional excellence.  We now have our first purchase order from the OCS in hand and look forward to shipping our first recreational sales this week,” continued Athaide.
