Flora Growth’s Strategic Future


<![CDATA[When Flora Growth debuted on the Nasdaq in May 2021, the company publicized the U.S.-based initial public offering (IPO) as the first known cannabis cultivator to list without using a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), reverse merger or dual listing.
