Social Responsibility

Quality returns, transparent values.

Quality returns, transparent values

The emerging cannabis market straddles numerous jurisdictions, each of which has its own rules and regulatory framework. BlackShire Group fully supports the counsel and public policy research of local lawmakers, and practises full regulatory compliance wherever it or its portfolio companies operate.

Full compliance and responsible behaviour is just one way BlackShire Group can help normalize cannabis – helping to innovate and promote retail and pharmaceutical products that can enrich the lives of consumers.

BlackShire Group is committed to cannabis education, to the responsible use of cannabis products, to good governance and to giving back to the community.

The power of sport

BlackShire Group believes amateur and Olympic-level sport can uplift individuals, inspire communities and test the limits of the human spirit. It lives that belief by supporting athletic endeavours and participation throughout Canada, particularly among promising student-athletes and amateur competitors. In addition to helping individuals achieve their dreams, BlackShire Group's principals proudly sponsor Rugby Canada as well as a variety of local tournaments and events.

BlackShire Group is also confident in the positive benefits cannabis can have for adult athletes pushing the boundaries of human performance. Consider the compound cannabidiol, or CBD, which shows promise for reducing or treating many of the maladies that high-performance athletes face every day, such as anxiety or inflammation. CBD products have the potential to treat sore muscles, for example, without the negative side effects of today’s go-to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – a leading cause of drug-induced liver injury.

The future of cannabis and the future of sport are interconnected. BlackShire Group is proud to support both.
