The website MarketWatch.com reported that the company Sundial Growers sold a half-ton of cannabis that was allegedly returned by corporate buyer Zenabis Global because it contained visible mold, parts of rubber gloves and other non-cannabis material, according to people familiar with the matter.
According to the website, the batch of cannabis would be worth roughly C$2.5 million ($1.9 million), assuming a price of C$5 per gram. Sundial has not disclosed that a shipment has been returned; a spokeswoman for the company didn’t return requests for comment. Sundial announced earnings Wednesday morning.
