- Acquired the award-winning prohibition-era brand, Glacial Gold, and expanded into branded product manufacturing and sales.

- Established distribution of Glacial Gold products into three provincial markets and nationally for medical cannabis patients.

“A significant portion of our cost of sales is related to our existing excess capacity, as such, as our revenue scales our gross profit should increase exponentially,” said Nextleaf CFO Charles Ackerman. “2021 was a significant year of graduating the business to increasingly focus on scaling commercial activity. We’ve added optionality to our revenue model with the addition of cannabis product sales to B2B bulks sales. Combining the B2C and B2B activity all drives further utilization and scale in our extraction economics which is the top of our value chain.”
