The chief executive officer of CanniMed Therapeutics has resigned, effective immediately, as Aurora Cannabis wraps up its acquisition of the medical marijuana company.
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.

In January, Aurora struck a stock-and-cash deal valued at $1.1 billion to buy CanniMed.

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