CannTrust Relaunches Two Brands Following Illegal Cultivation

The Vaughan, Ont., cannabis firm made the announcement Wednesday

CannTrust Holdings Inc. is staging a comeback more than a year after its licences were suspended for illegally growing thousands of kilograms of dried cannabis in unlicensed rooms.

The Vaughan, Ont., cannabis firm announced Wednesday that it will reintroduce two recreational brands, Liiv and Synr.g, to the Canadian market this month.

“We’re confident that when the customers come back and try our products again, then they’ll remember how good and how consistent and high quality they are,” CEO Greg Guyatt said in an interview.

“We think we will win them back.”

That task may not be easy.

CannTrust remains under Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act protection as it deals with multiple class action lawsuits and other litigation.

The cases were filed after Health Canada discovered illicit cultivation at CannTrust’s Pelham, Ont., greenhouse and seized cannabis from unlicensed rooms in the summer of 2019.
