On Jan. 10, 2017, Health Canada authorized James E. Wagner Cultivation in Ontario to start cultivating medical cannabis, making it the 38th licensed producer in Canada and the first producer of 2017 licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations.

“We are proud to be the first LP in Waterloo Region, as we are a family owned and operated business with deep roots here,” said JWC in a statement. “We bring a fresh take to the Canadian cannabis industry — our focus is on crafting a high-quality, pharmaceutical grade product, prepared to the highest standards.”

Once JWC’s first medical cannabis crop is ready, Health Canada has to approve two test batches of the product before it can license JWC to sell medical cannabis to patients, which the company expects to happen by summer 2017, as reported by CTV.
