industry analysis

The health, wellness and cannabinoid industries in the United States and many other countries have been growing due to a substantial growth in the numbers of states approving the use of medical and adult-use marijuana and cannabinoid products. Additionally, in recent years, several internationally recognized medical journals and medical professionals including CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, have published results relating to the use of cannabinoids in the treatment of cancer, childhood seizures, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, Multiple Sclerosis and pain management. This swell of interest in alternative health and wellness related to the use of cannabinoids is resulting in the establishment of new opportunities across many industries. Individual countries and states have passed legislation for the regulation of medical and recreational use, but in the United States the lack of federal mandates has created some uncertainty in the industry.
