The (big) business of cannabis
Cannabis is a double-barrelled, high-impact fact of Canadian life. Of course there is transformative social impact. But, maybe not quite as high profile and consumer interesting, is the tremendous business impact.
Despite the headlines about primarily retail and recreational cannabis, the business of cannabis is proving to be exciting. New research is showing potentially hundreds of uses of cannabis and hemp beyond pharmacology, natural medicine and recreational drug use. And many complementary industries – like the agricultural, industrial, technology and services sectors – are vital to the growing cannabis industry.
