Cannabis Companies Benefiting From the Cannabis Rush

LAS VEGAS, July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

FN Media Group Presents News Commentary 

Recreational cannabis is now selling legally in California and Canada, which opened its national marijuana market this month. The estimated $12B sales projection in North America translates to big opportunities for entrepreneurs and brands. In the U.S. the recent and continued success of states like Colorado, Nevada and Washington's cannabis markets along with the lack of federal interference, has helped bring the idea of working with marijuana into the mainstream.

When it comes to recreational marijuana individuals are enjoying cannabis in all kinds of new ways. Most people don't want to smoke anymore for a variety of reasons including lung safety concerns, smell and odor issues, second hand smoke around children and other non smokers, along with the extra time it takes to smoke. There's a huge boom in alternative forms of ingestion. Alternative forms include every kind of edible imaginable (candies, cookies, butters, cooking oils), drinks, topicals, tinctures, lotions and rubs. The legal recreational marijuana industry is revolutionizing business and society in North America.
