“We look forward to continuing work with Oceanic on expanding their cultivation and retail operations in Newfoundland,” said Delta 9 CE) John Arbuthnot. “We are very excited to be able to offer the residents of Newfoundland and Labrador the best selection of cannabis products and to work with Oceanic to create a world class production facility.”
