Cannabis, also known as ‘weed,’ was once regarded as a dangerous drug because of its high THC content. The public’s and the government’s views on the substance have evolved since then. As a result of this shift in public opinion, several countries have repealed laws that made marijuana possession a crime. The plant itself is the primary delivery system for marijuana. Reports at the beginning of the industry indicated that the black market was outselling the white market, which slowed growth. Canada has 2,652 marijuana dispensaries as a result of this change of perspective. Since 2018, marijuana sales have totaled $11 billion, fueled by $29 billion in capital expenditures. Canada’s GDP has been bolstered by $43.5 billion from industry, with $25.2 billion of that coming from direct labor income. In 2020, the global cannabis market was valued at $20.47 billion and had grown at a rate of 50% per year. There will be 32.04 percent growth in the industry between 2021 and 2030, according to the study. Village Farms International, Inc. and Trulieve Cannabis Corp. are among the best-known companies.
