Cannabis is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. At the close of 2018, there were a stunning $11 billion dollars in legal cannabis sales in the U.S. alone, and by 2021, the global market is estimated to be worth $31.4 billion.
Canada legalized the drug for recreational use in 2018, and other countries like Spain, Portugal, and France are poised to legalize marijuana over the next several years, meaning that the market will only continue to grow. Additionally, experts predict that the U.S., which currently drives 90 percent of global cannabis sales, will legalize cannabis for recreational and medicinal use nationwide by 2021.
