Palm Beach, FL – February 15, 2023 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – The cannabis business is one of those atypical industries that actually flourished because of the pandemic. The global worldwide market has significantly grown in all its segments. A recent report from statista.com projected that: “Revenue in the Cannabis market is projected to reach US$47.20bn in 2023; Revenue is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2023-2027) of 12.69%, resulting in a market volume of US$76.12bn by 2027; In global comparison, most revenue will be generated in the United States (US$32,870.00m in 2023); and In relation to total population figures, per person revenues of US$332.30 are generated in 2023.” The report continued: “The maturity of the Cannabis market varies across the globe mainly due to differing legal environments and public attitudes towards cannabis. Some countries such as Canada and the United States have adopted fully regulated frameworks that allow cultivation, consumption, and retail distribution of various cannabis products. There are other countries that have more limited frameworks that allow the cultivation of cannabis, but have not legalized retail sales (e.g., South Africa). Regulations can also differ regarding how cannabis is used. Some countries allow consumption of products that contain high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) strictly for medical use, while there are other countries that also permit the consumption of high THC products for recreational use.” Active Companies from around the market with current developments this week include: Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: LBUY), SNDL Inc. (NASDAQ: SNDL), Tilray Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NASDAQ: ACB) (TSX: ACB), Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX: CRON).
“Legalization of cannabis is an important source of economic growth as it contributes to the growing tax revenue, increasing demands on the construction industry and to the creation of new work places. In addition to economic benefits, legalization of cannabis leads to more transparent tracking of its supply chain and therefore reduces the counterfeiting activities and overall criminal rates. The majority of consumers will shift from illicit markets to legal ones and potential users will be more eager to use cannabis as it will not be subject to penalties. We believe that loosening of legal restrictions in the coming years, rising demand and social acceptance as well as increasing investment flows in infrastructure, technology, and real estate around the world will lead to considerable growth in the overall market. COVID-19 has also contributed to the higher usage of cannabis mainly due to increased levels of stress and anxiety along with lack of social isolation.”
