Legal Cannabis Market Shows Strength in Sales

By , in PR PR Los Angeles on .

NEW YORK, December 19, 2017

A report published by Ameri Research Inc. indicates that the global legal cannabis market was valued at $14.3 billion in 2016 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 21.1% between 2017 and 2024, culminating in 2024 global sales of $63.5 billion. According to Ameri, the legal cannabis market is witnessing robust growth due to the increasing decriminalization of cannabis products across North America and Europe. The rising demand of cannabis for both medical and recreational use is a key factor driving the growth. In addition, it is estimated that due to the complex regulatory structure at the state level and federal level, the full potential of the market is not yet realized. Cannabis Strategic Ventures (OTC: NUGS), mCig, Inc.

A major focus of the legal cannabis market is on the medical segment. Giadha Aguirre De Carcer, CEO and Founder of New Frontier Data explained, “The United States constitutes 35% of the global pharmaceutical market, the largest market in the world, and a major driver of the U.S. economy. It is one of many industries that will be impacted by the growth of the legal cannabis market and we are already starting to see that trend in legal medical states where use of key prescription drugs is down by 11%. If cannabis were to be adopted nationally, we would begin to see a trend of patients turning to medical cannabis as a substitute or complement to pharmaceuticals.” 

Cannabis Strategic Ventures (OTC: NUGS) just announced breaking news this morning that, “it is creating a financing and investment pool geared toward investment in cannabis projects in California. This pool will be managed by the Cannabis Strategic Ventures team with initial investments targeting cultivation opportunities.

“While most of our investors consider us to be an employment and staffing service targeting the emerging cannabis sector, we now plan to show investors a much broader path for the Company,” commented Simon Yu, CEO of the Company. “While we have already signed an employment deal in Washington with more on the horizon, we are now beginning the process of performing due diligence on multiple emerging cannabis cultivation opportunities, with the most advanced project being located in Santa Barbara country.”

With the opening of the California recreational market in less than two weeks, Cannabis Strategic believes expansion out of its first market, Washington State, into California presents significant opportunities for the Company. The Company plans to pursue investment opportunities in not only Employment, HR and Staffing operations, but also in the areas of real estate, cultivation, extraction, packaging and dispensary operations.
