Earlier this year, Pyxus went through a name change (quite unlike the rest of its Canadian counterparts, it was not done for stock promotion). The name change represented a pivot from traditional tobacco to a strategy focused on legal cannabis/hemp production for the long term - a pivot that is now being vindicated by Altria's interest in the space.

PYX owns majority stakes in two Canadian licensed cannabis producers and has received its ACMPR cannabis cultivation license from Health Canada as part of the company's "one tomorrow" transformation.
