Medicinal Cannabis: How Australian Startups and Investors can get involved

Cannabis use for medicinal purposes dates back hundreds of years across civilisations, geographies and eras. Over the last century, many countries have created policies to criminalise and penalise the use of cannabis. In light of scientific evidence, across medical fraternities, supporting cannabis’ efficacy in treating medical conditions, a lot of countries are re-evaluating their legal stance on cannabis

Canada and US are the leading economies and societies to take a progressive look on cannabis legislation, with Canada having fully legalised the plant for both medical(2001) and adult recreational use(2018).

According to the most recent research, more than 260 million adults worldwide consume cannabis at least once per year, collectively spending $344 billion USD annually. As much of the world has not yet legalised any form, much of the demand is in illicit or unregulated markets. By way of comparison, the U.S., which is the world’s largest legal cannabis market, is forecast to generate $13 Billion in legal retail sales in 2019(Source: NFD, Global report 2019).
