Sebastien St-Louis, the CEO and Co-Founder of HEXO Corp is this week’s guest on The Green Rush. HEXO is one of Canada’s largest LPs and a leader in the race to capture the estimated $250 billion global market. Recently the company joined other major players like Aurora and Canopy on the NYSE and inked a deal with MolsonCoors Canada to produce cannabis infused beverages, set to hit Canadian shelves this December.
Lewis is joined by Nick for this week’s conversation with Sebastien as we sit down with him to learn more about how HEXO is preparing for the coming consumables marketplace in Canada, discuss how CannTrust’s issues have affected (or not affected) how other LPs are operating, and what the long-term future of the Canadian cannabis market really looks like.
Don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
