SMITHS FALLS, ON and NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth” or “the Company”) (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) and Sequential Brands Group, Inc. (“Sequential”) (NASDAQ: SQBG) announced today that Martha Stewart has joined the Company in an advisory role to assist with developing and positioning a broad new line of product offerings across multiple categories.
With decades of success in publishing, broadcasting, online and merchandising, Martha Stewart has firmly cemented herself as one of the most well-respected businesswomen in the United States.

With several clinical trials underway, Canopy Growth will be leaning on Martha’s vast knowledge of consumer products while exploring the effectiveness of CBD and other cannabinoids as they relate to improving the lives of both humans and animals.
“I am delighted to establish this partnership with Canopy Growth and share with them the knowledge I have gained after years of experience in the subject of living,” said Martha Stewart. “I’m especially looking forward to our first collaboration together, which will offer sensible products for people’s beloved pets.”

As previously reported in January 2019, Canopy Growth has developed diverse product offerings specific to hemp-derived CBD and the Company looks forward to working closely with Martha Stewart as they further develop and introduce these products to market in the future. Canopy Growth previously reported that it will invest between $100and $150 million in a hemp industrial park in New York State with an intended purpose of being the Company’s first hemp facility in the United States.
