Incorporated in 2013 under the name Hydropothecary, the company was initially created to meet the needs of the medical cannabis market. With the advent of a legalized market, the company became HEXO Corp in August 2018, retaining Hydropothecary for medical clients and creating HEXO for the adult-use community.
One of the country’s lowest-cost producers, HEXO Corp currently has more than 310,000 sq. ft. of production capacity, with another 1,000,000 sq. ft. facility now under construction.
HEXO Corp takes pride as a product innovation leader in both medical (Hydropothecary) and adult-use cannabis (HEXO). Our research team employs state-of-the-art technology, a deep understanding of market trends and exacting scientific standards to create innovative, smoke-free cannabis products.
