Is cannabis research on the way up?

The marijuana market has undoubtedly seen a massive boom over the course of the past few years. One of the major benefits of this has been the changing of legislation across the board in places like Canada and various states throughout the U.S. Although it is still federally legal in the U.S. and many places around the world, the new market has opened up a large amount of opportunity for those looking to research the substance.

One of the issues with lacking laws to allow marijuana’s use is the fact that it makes it extremely difficult to study. For a drug with so much potential to treat everything from cancer to insomnia, one would think that research would be one of the priorities.

KushCo Holdings: 2 things to love and 2 to hate from its Q1 results

The marijuana industry absolutely transformed before our eyes in 2018. After decades of being a taboo topic, legal weed became a legitimate business model with the passage of the Cannabis Act in Canada. Although it'll take some time for the industry to get up to speed, the legal Canadian pot market could be generating in excess of $5 billion in sales within a few years.

The same could be said for the U.S. market, even though marijuana remains illegal at the federal level. With 32 states having legalized weed in some capacity, 10 of which allow adult-use pot, the dollars are starting to roll in.
