According to Arcview Research and BDS Analytics outlook on the 2019 cannabis market, worldwide cannabis spending is forecast to grow to $17 billion in 2019, and as high as $31.6 billion in 2022, averaging a 26% compound annual growth rate during the five year period from 2017 to 2022.

North American market expansion will lead overall growth fueled by “The Class of ‘16”, referencing the states that joined California in legalizing adult-use (which includes Nevada and Maine) and medical-use (Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota, the latter of which decriminalized marijuana in May 2019) or saw their states launch new medical programs (Ohio and Pennsylvania). From that overall group, Massachusetts has fast become one of the most exciting cannabis investment hotbeds and markets nationwide.

It’s not coming down the road. Or tomorrow. Opportunities in the explosive cannabis market are happening right now.

WHY NOW?

Cannapreneur is here to bring it all together for investors and business owners seeking capital.

As of 2017, with the exception of Idaho and Nebraska, all 50 states have come online with legal cannabis law for either medical or adult-use cannabis, or have legalized hemp and CBD products. Idaho’s Senate has since passed a hemp legalization bill to open up hemp farming in the state. “The key fundamental driving enormous increases in the capital available to cannabis-related businesses remain to enter a blossoming market.

From Arcview/BDS 2018 The State of Legal Marijuana Markets report

“In 2017, a total of 430 capital raises, worth more than $3.5 billion (an average of about $8.2 million per raise), were tracked by Viridian Capital Advisors, up from 348 raises valued at just under $1.3 billion (an average of just $3.7 million each) in 2016.”

In a five-year window – according to legalization advocates

Connecticut, Washington DC, Rhode Island, and Vermont are forecast to begin adult-use sales. In addition, Missouri (‘20), Texas (‘21), Utah (‘20) and Virginia (‘21) are expected to come online for medical revenue as well. Arcview Market Research/BDS Analytics also project the Massachusetts adult use program’s projected growth to reach $1.1 billion through 2022.”
