According to a report published by Ameri Research Inc., the global legal cannabis industry was valued at USD 14.3 Billion in 2016 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 21.1% between 2017 to 2024. The industry is expected to cross the USD 63 Billion value mark by 2024. The legal cannabis market is in a period of vigorous growth, which is a direct result of increasing legalization and decriminalization of cannabis products across North America.

A report by CNBC quotes MedMen CEO and Co-Founder, Adam Bierman, who explains the current state of the industry, “There is so much excitement now around legalization nationally coming in Canada. There is so much excitement about the fact that CaliforniaNevadaMaine and Massachusetts all legalized recreational marijuana… The Canadian public markets offer access to a lot of capital, with a lot of certainty and a lot of speed, and there is this appetite among global investors to invest in a U.S. play. Specifically, global investors want to invest in a U.S. play that has California exposure. Now is the time where it makes the most sense.”

Nevada hemp growers surveyed by Marijuana Business Daily report that the market is fetching:

  • USD c200 or more per pound for flower, depending on CBD content and quality
  • Approximately USD 10 per pound of food-grade seed, or USD 45 per gallon for seed oil

  • Approximately USD 10,000 per Kg of CBD isolate”

CROP Infrastructure Director and CEO, Michael Yorke, stated, “Our licensed tenant Hempire has doubled the planned hemp growing acreage from 120 acres to 240 acres for the last crop of the 2018 season.
