Total Impact of Cannabis Market Projected to Reach $48 Billion In 2019

Palm Beach, FL – June 23, 2019 – The cannabis markets are growing like a weed in both the U.S. and global markets. Each projection seems to raise the ceiling even higher than before. A recent article in the Marijuana Business Daily projected that: “Total economic impact of the cannabis industry will range from $39.2 billion to $48 billion in 2019 – about a 35% increase over 2018… and the U.S. cannabis sales in 2018 were between $8.6 billion and $10.8 billion – more than U.S. spending on e-cigarettes, the video game Fortnite and Goldfish crackers… and U.S. sales of cannabis in 2019 will be about 35% higher than 2018 and could reach $30 billion by 2023.  But are not just the industry giants that have green fields in front of them. Local dispensaries and recreational shops are a big part of the revenue tsunami. Another industry website laid forth the following industry picture and accompanying statistics: “As more states approve cannabis for use, an entirely new market has cropped up in the United States. Medical dispensaries, as well as recreational shops, are opening to supply marijuana to a broad base of consumers.”   Active Companies from around the market with current developments this week include:  Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTCQB: MCOA), Hemp Inc. (OTCPK: HEMP), Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTCPK: MJNA), Sipp Industries, Inc. (OTCPK: SIPC), Smart Cannabis Corp. (OTCPK: SCNA).


The article also reported that: “Sales of legal cannabis in the U.S. amounted to nearly $10 billion in 2018 alone. Most of us already realized that the marijuana industry was huge, but this figure tells us just how expansive it is.  The cannabis market is expected to grow at a rate of 21% per year between now and 2021. This will mean that in three years’ time, the marijuana industry will be pulling in about $23 billion per year in revenue.”
