According to data provided by Energias Market Research, the global medical cannabis market is expected to grow significantly from USD 8.28 billion in 2017 to USD 28.07 billion in 2024, at a CAGR of 19.1% from 2018 to 2024. There are several crucial factors that propel the growth of the market, including growing recognition of medicinal benefits, increasing demand for cannabis in the treatment of various diseases, as well as a growing number of research and development investments. Sales of cannabis products for recreational use are also projected to increase, as California’s new recreational cannabis laws went into effect earlier this year. While California is the largest market, Canada will show strong sales as well, a report by Deloitte projects the Canadian market will be worth at least $5B in sales in 2018. FinCanna Capital Corp.
