“I am excited to welcome the Bayfield team to Supreme Cannabis. We have worked closely with Bayfield and have come to trust their advice, work ethic, and values. As we enter an exciting growth stage for the Company and the global cannabis industry, we will benefit from the infusion of skills and experience brought by the Bayfield team.

We Grow Better as a team.
