According to a statement issued by the companies, CEO Brent Zettl, who helped co-found the Saskatoon-based licensed producer in 1988, is pursuing other opportunities.
He has agreed to remain available to CanniMed and Aurora as they integrate the two companies.
Aurora's senior vice-president of business integration Andre Jerome has been appointed as interim chief executive.

The agreement ended a sometimes-terse takeover battle between the two marijuana companies.
