Innovation

As our industry continues to rapidly evolve, product diversity, world-class research and supply-chain advancements are becoming increasingly important. Our sharp focus on innovation at the global stage is accomplished through ongoing strategic investment and ownership of leading research, partnerships with disruptive brands and organizations, and acquisitions.


Canopy Health Innovations is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation. Canopy Health is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and researching clinically-ready, whole-plant cannabis drug formulations and dose delivery systems. The ultimate goal is to validate diversified treatment options for Canadians and for patients and consumers in other jurisdictions where treatment with cannabis is federally legal. The foundation of our research and development plan is to improve the quality of life and health of those suffering from acute and chronic illnesses. The proper formulation of cannabinoids means the opportunity to improve a number of common complaints and ailments, like pain, appetite stimulation, and sleep quality. Medical cannabis is also used to manage common diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, autism, autoimmune diseases like Crohn’s disease and colitis, and fibromyalgia.

Canopy Animal Health is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canopy Health, focused on creating cannabis-based healthcare products for companion animals. Our goal is to provide family pets with specialized cannabinoid medicines to maintain, improve, or extend their quality of life. Canopy Health has undertaken an extensive intellectual property review which forms the basis of all of our strategic plans.
