Cannabis company Tilray Inc. reported a loss in its latest quarter as revenue soared.

Tilray says the total kilogram equivalents sold more than tripled to 5,588 kilograms from 1,514 kilograms in the prior year period.

However, the average net selling price per gram fell to $4.61 compared with $6.38 a year ago due to a reduced mix of higher priced extract products.
