Health Canada approved the company’s application to become a licensed cannabis producer under Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) in September, after initially applying in October 2016.

Shoppers has said that it has no interest in producing medical cannabis, but the LP designation is required in order to sell the product to patients.

Under the current Health Canada regulations for medical cannabis, the only legal distribution method is by mail order from licensed producers direct to patients.
