The legalization of cannabis in the US and Canada means the potential for enormous sales growth. Cannabis Business Plan- a cannabis research firm, predicts that the cannabis industry will grow 28% in the next three years, achieving $25 billion in annual revenues by 2025. The research firm expects states like Arizona and Florida to legalize all sorts of cannabis in the next five years, which will substantially increase the size of the industry.
The report further forecast that factors such as consumer education and general societal acceptance of cannabis-based products will add to the sales momentum.
The firm has also highlighted few companies that are likely to take advantage of booming market dynamics:
CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (OTC:CLSH) is among those companies that are actively working on growth strategies to expand their market share.
It is engaged in the extracting of cannabinoids from cannabis plants and transferring the resulting cannabinoid extracts into concentrates including waxes, oils, shatters and edibles.
