Innovative global cannabinoid company, Cronos Group’s (Nasdaq: CRON), Spinach brand has emerged as the top contender in Canada’s burgeoning cannabis market, securing the coveted position of the number one flower brand in the country. Spinach closed 2023 as the number one ranked flower brand in Canada with a 6.9% market share in the fourth quarter. Spinach flower products have resonated strongly with consumers, and were the best-selling flower brand in Canada in 2023.

“With leadership positions in both the flower and edibles categories, and as the second best-selling brand overall in the Canadian cannabis industry1, we are especially proud that we’re shipping our high-quality, best-selling borderless products to emerging international markets. We’re thrilled to continue our growth trajectory globally after recently shipping our cannabis flower to Australia’s medicinal market and look forward to another tremendous year in 2024,” said Mr. Gorenstein.
