Subject to the terms of the Agreement, the company expects to supply 1,700 kilograms of indoor-grown dried cannabis flower to Avida Medical in the UK over a period of three years.

"We are pleased to partner with Avida Medical in the UK, marking yet another exciting milestone for Organigram's expansion into the global market.
