An Alberta medical marijuana company is blazing the trail on the international market, expanding its sales to a second European country.

Aurora Cannabis Enterprises Inc., a medical cannabis producer with an 800,000-square-foot production facility near the Edmonton International Airport, has struck a deal to be the first and only private international pot manufacturer to sell in Italy.

This is a sign of things to come,” Cam Battley, Aurora’s chief corporate officer, told CBC News. “As each new medical cannabis market in the EU [European Union] opens up, we’re going to be able to participate.”

In 2015, Aurora was the first medical marijuana operation in Alberta granted a license by Health Canada, originally at a production facility in Mountain View County, north of Calgary.

Until recently, the Italian military would cultivate medical cannabis for public use, Aurora said in a news release. An increase in demand for medical marijuana is now forcing the Italian government to look for new relationships with suppliers.

Italy gets some government-distributed medical marijuana from the Netherlands, but Aurora is the first private manufacturer to have a direct relationship with the Italian government, Battley said.
