The company reported record net revenue of US$194 million, an increase of 34% in the second quarter compared to US$144 million in the prior year quarter.

Tilray says it leads the Canadian cannabis market in revenue, sales volume, and market share with a 12.5% position during its second quarter, leading sales in cannabis flower, oils, concentrates, and THC beverages, buoyed by its acquisition of HEXO Corp. and Truss Beverage.

Tilray also says it is continuing to focus on expanding its distribution of medical cannabis into various international markets. It also hopes that it can expand its distribution of cannabis products into the US, pending any future changes to the country’s federal cannabis laws, especially by utilizing Tilray’s investment in the US brand Med Men.
