(CNW) St. John’s, N.L. — Atlantic Cultivation, a craft cannabis cultivator and processor based in St. John’s, NL, has executed a significant acquisition, securing the Tantalus Labs brand. This strategic move extends Tantalus Labs’ legacy under the stewardship of Atlantic Cultivation, contributing to its role as a purveyor of premium cannabis products.

Embodying a shared commitment to excellence, the acquisition encompasses Tantalus Labs’ brands, remaining inventory, and transitioning the brand from its origins in British Columbia to a coast-to-coast national presence with Atlantic Cultivation.
