SMITHS FALLS, Omtario, Aug. 14, 2019 /CNW/ - Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy Growth" or the "Company") (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2019. All financial information in this press release is reported in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

In first quarter fiscal 2020, Canopy Growth harvested 40,960 kg of product, surpassing its previous estimate of 34,000 kilograms. The Q1 harvest is the first full-scale harvest since the retrofitting of its large-scale greenhouse facilities started in calendar 2018, and with a majority of the work completed at Mirabel, Delta, and Aldergrove facilities, the Company is now shifting its focus to optimizing these facilities for yield and cost. The Company believes these efforts will contribute to both revenue growth and gross margin improvements in coming months. The recent Q1 harvest demonstrates the Company's ability to scale production of 'high-THC' strains of cannabis, representing over 70% of the harvest, which positions the Company to better meet the burgeoning demand for high-THC products in retail. The Company also saw a steady increase of recreational retail sales which continues to be the primary channel for reaching new consumers.
