Investing in cannabis doesn’t have to be complicated. We’ve put together a handy guide to get you started — from legality, to identifying opportunity, and maximizing ROI.

A guide for investing in cannabis

The word “investment” might induce fear and panic in a consumer’s or investor’s mind. The main reason is fear of losing money, so many people don’t even think about acting on investing – especially in the cannabis industry.

Are You Interestested in Investing in Cannabis?

Investment simply means distributing funds to an asset or allocating capital to a venture (business, project, real estate etc.,) with the expectation of producing a profit. Let’s look at some facts about the cannabis industry and investments.

-in 2019 there was an increase of 45.7% in sales worldwide, but only a 17 % increase in 2018?!

-in the USA, the cannabis market is valued between 40-50 billion dollars and has an expectation to grow to 80 billion dollars (assuming national availability)?!

-2020 is projected to have a 38.8% increase in sales worldwide?!

-2024 is projected to reach $42.7 billion, with an increase of 26.9 % in compound annual growth from 2018?!

-66 % of survey respondents now support legalizing marijuana (a record high)?!

-the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill (which made industrial hemp a lawful agricultural commodity) could help the industry generate an estimated 1.6 billion dollars in revenue?!

-the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is looking for ways to legalize the sale of cannabis products in food and beverages that could help companies sell products across state lines?!

Is investing in cannabis illegal?

Recent updates in federal law – specifically the most recent Farm Bill, officially defines industrial hemp as having less than 0.03% THC. The 2018 Farm Bill freed hemp from any association to marijuana.

Signing this bill now makes hemp an ordinary agricultural commodity and now farmers can have access to water rights, grants, banking, crop insurance and many more benefits.

Since the federal law updated this significant change, interest in hemp and cannabis investing could have a dramatic rise in the US.
Again, is investing in cannabis illegal? This will depend on your specific local state laws and the amount of risk you’re willing to take – in early phases.
