Cannabis is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, and it’s no longer a ‘budding’ one either. Even without federal legalization, legal U.S. cannabis sales are projected to hit $30 billion this year, and $47.6 billion by 2026, surpassing the craft beer industry, according to research firm BDSA.

While M&A activity continues to contribute to the industry’s momentum (2021 saw nearly 300 deals in the global cannabis space, according to an analysis published by Viridian Capital), public support for legalization is also growing. A Gallup poll from November 2021 cites that two in three Americans support the legalization of cannabis.

With all that momentum, there has never been a better time to build your cannabis team to drive long-term growth. With ForceBrands‘ specialized cannabis practice, landing the right job or finding the right talent has never been easier.
