Opportunities and Challenges in the Cannabis Industry
Once an illegal and somewhat niche product, legal cannabis is now a fast-growing global industry impacting everything from pharmaceuticals, to beauty products, to packaging, to local banking. Hemp, a variety of the cannabis plant, is even finding its way into clothing and construction products.
According to BDS and Arcview Market Research, it’s estimated that global consumer spending on cannabis will reach $32B by 2022. That’s 3 times the current spending level.
Medical marijuana is already legal across most of the US, and 10 states (plus Washington DC) have legalized marijuana for recreational use. As of October 2018, it is now fully legal in all of Canada as well. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp in the US, opening the door to a wealth of market opportunities.
