FinCanna Capital well positioned with royalty business model in the heralded American cannabis industry
A key point to know for cannabis investors is that California is the largest legal marijuana market in the world. The sheer size and population of around 40 million is making California the epicenter of the United States cannabis market. The state has around 1 million medical cannabis users. California is also the largest state economy in the US and is the fifth largest economy in the world.
The cannabis market is forecast to grow very strongly
A 2019 report on the cannabis market stated: “Worldwide legal cannabis spending hits $12.2 billion in 2018, projected to grow 38% to $16.9 billion in 2019.” An earlier (2018) report by Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics stated: “The (global) cannabis market could triple in size in the next four years. In fact, by 2022, the global cannabis market could be worth as much as $32 billion, a three-fold increase in just five years with the U.S. expected to fuel much of that growth with an expected market value of $23.3 billion. Much of the current growth we’re seeing comes from California’s cannabis market, which is expected to exceed $5.1 billion market value in the next year after legalizing its recreational use on January 1, 2018.”
