Biome Grow Inc. will begin trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange under ticker symbol “BIO” tomorrow, Tuesday October 9. The company is employing a conglomerate strategy, currently focused in the Atlantic Provinces of Canada, to the burgeoning legal cannabis industry. With four subsidiaries, an executive team well-versed in both the specific business of cannabis and the more general capital markets, and an impressive Board of Directors, Biome Grow is looking to dominate the underserved markets of Eastern Canada before branching out both domestically and internationally.
