Israel Represents An Attractive Long-Term Growth Opportunity For Aurora Cannabis Inc.

A few years ago, Israel overtook Germany as the world’s largest cannabis importer and this is a market that we have been bullish on. 

A core pillar of our bullish view on Israel’s cannabis market is related to how the climate is ideal for cultivating cannabis. When compared to Canada or the United States (US), the cost to cultivate a gram of cannabis is much lower in Israel. As a result, the economics that are associated with cultivating cannabis are much more attractive in Israel and our readers should be aware of this. (Click here to view original article.)


Which Country Will Legalize Cannabis Next?

It may be hard to pinpoint the exact time when cannabis will be legalized worldwide, but it’s a safe bet that eventually, most, if not all of the planet, will end cannabis prohibition.

The scientist who identified THC is now working on synthetic cannabinoids

In the 55 years since he first isolated D9-tetrahydrocannabinol (better known today as THC) with colleagues Dr. Yehiel Gaoni and Dr. Haviv Edery at Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam has been the absolute leader in the science of cannabis.
