A discussion on product innovation, branding and de-stigmatization

Canada’s cannabis sector has been fascinating to watch over the last 13 months as a fully legal and regulated sector. From the peak investor highs to the on again and off again rollout of the retail play, particularly in Ontario, to the release of edibles, beverages and topicals. It’s certainly not been boring. Yet what often gets lost in all the market prognostications, regulatory laments, and the way in which retail opportunities are being allocated, is the manner in which marketers in the space are handling brand building and brand reputation in an entirely new industry. Tune in as Andrew Rusk, head of marketing, digital and communications at Canopy Growth discusses what’s next for the cannabis sector in Canada, delving into product innovation, strategic partnerships and the continued de-stigmatization and education that the sector continues to face.
