Aurora Cannabis Receives Australian Stamp of Approval

Global medical cannabis company, Aurora Cannabis (Nasdaq: ACB) has received a landmark certification from Australian authorities for cannabis products from its Canadian production facilities. The company announced on Wednesday that it has secured Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification from Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for its Canadian production facilities, River and Ridge. The company’s share price rose nearly 5% in intraday trading following the news.

The certification enables Aurora to deliver top-tier cannabis products to Australia, including dried flower, resin cartridges, pastilles and oils.
