A Canadian company is facing the prospect of losing its licence to produce and sell cannabis products. It would mark the first time Health Canada has revoked a licence since the country first began regulating the medical marijuana industry.

Ascent, a publicly traded company, grows, produces and sells a range of cannabis products, including a number of CBD items.
