April 9, 2017 at 10:04 am by Alan Brochstein, CFA Editors Note: Staying a breast of these fast markets in the cannabis space is very challenging and time consuming.

The Future of Cannabis Investing

Source: Tom Beck for Streetwise Reports  (2/3/17) The cannabis industry attained new highs in 2016, paving the way for some big changes this year, says Tom Beck, senior editor of Portfolio Wealth Global. New Frontier Data Four states in the U.S. voted in favor of legalization on November 8th of 2016, and it was expected that the cannabis market would rake in over $6.7 billion from the U.S. alone in 2016. It only gets better from here. For starters, sales of cannabis are set to rise to $22.8 billion in the U.S. by 2020. The graph above captures the rollicking growth rate of the market. Portfolio Wealth Global sees this as a dam bursting, but the magnitude of the moment is understated—that’s because even top hedge fund managers still don’t have a handle on whom the top dogs are, and that’s exactly the opportunity we see in building strong relationships with … Continue reading

The Cannabis Market That Could Grow 700% By 2020

Debra Borchardt , CONTRIBUTOR I write about retail and cannabis. Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the part of the cannabis plant that doesn’t get you “high” like the THC side of the plant. It is typically used for health reasons instead of for recreational purposes. The CBD products are either derived from industrial hemp plants or marijuana plants. The Hemp Business Journal estimated that the CBD market will grow to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by 2020 with $450 million of those sales coming from hemp-based sources. That’s a 700% increase from 2016. In 2015, the market for consumer sales of hemp-derived CBD products was $90 million, plus another $112 million in marijuana-derived CBD products which were sold through dispensaries – bringing a total CBD market to $202 million last year. Matt Karnes of Greenwave Advisors is even more optimistic about the … Continue reading

Congress Just Ended The Ban On Medical Marijuana

December 26, 2015 Robert Celt The federal ban on medical marijuana is finally a thing of the past. Slipped inside a major budgetary spending bill that was purported to prevent the government from shutting down, is an interesting earmarked section that finally lifts the federal ban on medical marijuana. The relevant excerpt of bill H.R. 83 text reads as follows: “Sec. 538.

UN to call on governments around the world to decriminalise all drugs, says Richard Branson

October 19, 2015 Adam Withall Branson’s intervention appears to be designed to prevent the UN from changing its mind AFP The UN may be about to call on the governments of all countries to end the “war on drugs” and decriminilise the use and possession of all illegal substances. In an extraordinary post on his Virgin website, Richard Branson said he had been showed a report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) which dramatically changed the organisation’s stance on drug control. He said the “as-yet unreleased statement” had been sent to some of the world’s media under embargo, but the businessman has gone public with it early for fear the UN will “bow to pressure by not going ahead with this important move”. The UN was preparing to declare “unequivocally that criminalisation is harmful unnecessary and disproportionate”, Branson wrote. A document changing the UN stance on drug control … Continue reading
