Canadian cannabis producer Aurora Cannabis Inc. announced on July 15 that it officially delivered one of the largest shipments of cannabis to Israel to date.
The company completed a record-breaking delivery defined as “nearly C$8 million”—one of the company’s largest shipments. “We are excited about the evolution of the cannabis industry in Israel and commend the Ministry of Health and the Israeli Medical Cannabis Agency for ensuring thoughtful regulation of cannabis, in the best interest of Israeli cannabis patients,” said Chief Executive Officer of Aurora Cannabis Inc.
