CannTrust relaunches two brands following illegal cultivation, CCAA filing


VAUGHAN, Ont. — CannTrust Holdings Inc. is trying to stage a comeback more than a year after it had its licenses suspended for illegally growing thousands of kilograms of dried cannabis.

The Vaughan, Ont. cannabis firm says two of its recreational brands called Liiv and Synr.g, will return to the Canadian market this month.

CannTrust will launch additional products and markets in 2021 and is promising its full line of medical products will return in the near future.

The products come as CannTrust remains under Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act protection while it deals with multiple class action lawsuits and other litigation.

The cases were filed after Health Canada discovered illicit cultivation at CannTrust’s Pelham, Ont., greenhouse and seized cannabis from its unlicensed rooms in July 2019.

The company’s licences for growing and processing cannabis were suspended, but earlier this year, Health Canada reinstated those linked to CannTrust’s Fenwick and Vaughan facilities.
