Canada Cannabis Markets Report 2019: A Comprehensive Breakdown of the Entry, Regulatory & Strategic Outlook - ResearchAndMarkets.com

March 19, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 19, 2019--The “Oh Cannabis: The World is Watching Canada - A Comprehensive Breakdown of the Entry, Regulatory & Strategic Outlook” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Canada’s total cannabis market is significant, potentially reaching nearly $7.2 billion by 2019-with legal sales making up more than half of that.

Once an illegal and rather niche product, legal cannabis is now a fast-growing global industry. And it’s proving to be disruptive, impacting everything from beverage production to home construction.

There’s also been a large uptick in public and private investment in new, safer forms of ingestible marijuana, while cannabis startups - focused on everything from therapeutics applications to cultivation techniques - are also cropping up. Financing to cannabis companies more than doubled in 2017.

Canada is fast becoming the world’s leading cannabis market. It has a national legalized medical cannabis program, flourishing medical cannabis importing and exporting programs, and a fully federally legal, adult-use program.

And a new kind of consumer will be buying a good portion of that legal product: middle-aged, university-educated Canadians juggling many responsibilities and looking for the occasional toke. Knowledgeable staff, clear pricing, convenience, customer experience, product choice, and product and location safety will all play a key role in their success. Those who get the essentials right could secure a strong competitive advantage.

The economic impact of cannabis legalization will depend on two crucial factors: how much of the dominant non-licensed black market (85% of users) migrates to the legal space; and, how many non-users (over 25 million Canadians of legal age) choose to indulge in the substance.

Finally, while Canada is well-positioned to become a global leader in cannabis exports, markets remain limited to a small-subset of jurisdictions permitting medical use.

Cannabis has a significant ready base and a robust & sustainable future market potential. Given the traction on promoting cannabis and success realized, the author presents their strategic market research report titled, Cannabis: The World is Watching Canada.
