The Future of Cannabis: Panel Discussion & Networking Event
If you weren't convinced that we are in the early stages of a cannabis boom unlike any other in history, then consider these stats:
In 2017, sales of medical and recreational cannabis in the U.S. were nearly nine times higher than Oreo cookies.
The Cannabis industry is on track to add as many as 340,000 full-time jobs by 2022.
In 2018, the marijuana industry created an estimated $28B-$34B in economic impact.
Total demand for marijuana in the U.S., including the black market, is around $52.5 billion.
At Branchfood we've seen plenty of new products making their way into the home. Cannabis is quickly advancing in both medicinal and leisure markets and some experts predict cannabis will develop into a craft industry similar to microbreweries and craft distilleries. Many options for infused food, drink, and personal care products made with cannabis derivatives like CBD and hemp are just the beginning. With so much innovation underway, 2019 will surely be the biggest year yet for industry development and maturation.
In continuation of our ongoing Future of Food panel series, we'll bring together leading industry experts for a discussion and networking event on the future of cannabis to understand the past, present, and future of the industry. Join us for this event and brush up on the latest on this fast-moving sector.
