Business is Booming
Just the CBD market alone is predicted to grow 700% and reach $3 billion by 2021! And this data does not fully take into account the market set to explode in California. According to ArcView (a top cannabis market research firm), the legal marijuana industry in California alone should reach $6.45 billion by 2020.
That’s explosive growth. Along with it will come plenty of industry jobs and substantial source of new tax revenue for the states!
