The Toronto Globe and Mail’s business news section has launched a subscription product covering the country’s cannabis industry.

Report on Business Cannabis Professional is being sold for an introductory annual subscription rate of $999. The regular annual subscription price will be $2,000.

It is a stand-alone product and is not covered by a globeandmail.com or print subscription.

Cannabis Professional will be distributed as an email newsletter during the week and will include news about policy decisions, people moves, corporate finance, and business strategy and operations. In addition, subscribers will be the first to receive alerts with breaking cannabis industry news from The Globe’s newsroom and bureaus.

“This is a product geared for people who need the best understanding of an industry that is on the cusp of a historic moment, with federal legalization coming in October,” says Rob Gilroy, editor of Report on Business Cannabis Professional in a statement.

Other staffers working on Cannabis Professional include Globe cannabis reporters Christina Pellegrini and Mark Rendell, as well as Marcy Nicholson, a veteran journalist from Reuters joining The Globe to cover the industry in Western Canada from its Calgary bureau.

In addition, other contributors will include Jessie Willms, a data journalist with a strong track record who joined The Globe from CBC; award-winning business writer David Milstead; and members of The Globe and Mail’s Report on Business team, including financial columnist Andrew Willis and investing writer David Berman.
