MEDICAL CANNABIS, THE NEXT BIG INVESTMENT!
Hello my dear friend!
Welcome to another entry to my blog series on medical cannabis. This week I feel inspired! As you may know the start date of our classes is around the corner, and if you haven’t register for one of our 5 week medical cannabis courses, don’t worry, you still have time. This is your chance to start a new career, open you own business or even work for a company and improve you earnings. Please don’t let it go! With the increasing number of cannabis enthusiasts and cannabis entrepreneurs, more and more business opportunities are sprouting up.
Since we are so close to the beginning of our classes, as my personal goal I decided to convince you on why you should seriously consider entering this business. Here's a quick overview of the current market that can help validate why you should no hesitate any longer and take the first step.
1. Cultivating cannabis is one of the most rewarding things that a person can do, and thank’s to cannabis reform victories, it can now be done for a legal profit.
Cannabis cultivation for profit includes:
Harvesting and selling cannabis flower
Selling harvests to processors for concentrates, edibles, and other products
Breeding cannabis seeds and selling them to other growers
Producing cannabis clones and selling them to dispensaries
2. Cannabis related businesses constitute one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. This market alone was worth $4.7 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow to $13.3 billion by 2020.
3. Despite what could be considered an unfriendly administration in Washington D.C., nine states and the District of Columbia now allow for recreational cannabis use and 31 allow for medical use. More states are lining up to join the legalization wave.
4. The cannabis industry took in nearly $9 billion in sales in 2017, according to Tom Adams, managing director of BDS Analytics. Sales are equivalent to the entire snack bar industry, or to annual revenue from Pampers diapers.
5. The industry has also been creating jobs and opportunities. There are 9,397 active licenses for cannabis businesses in the U.S., according to Ed Keating, chief data officer for Cannabiz Media. This includes cultivators, manufacturers, retailers, dispensaries, distributors, deliverers and test labs.
6. More than 100,000 people are working around the cannabis plant and that number is going to grow. The industry employed 121,00 people in 2017. If cannabis continues its growth, the number of workers in that field could reach 292,000 by 2021, according to BDS Analytics.
7. Jobs in the industry are diverse and range from $12 per hour to more than $100,000 per year, and the growing demand for labor is expected to continue rising through 2020. Jobs boards like 420Careers and Weedhire can help connect prospective cannabis industry workers with open positions.
8. Florida now has 13 companies with 34 medical cannabis dispensaries. There are three operating in Central Florida, all in Orlando, with several more in the works. About 1,300 doctors have registered as well to evaluate and approve patients for cannabis based treatment of dozens of ailments.
As you can see numbers don’t lie, but also need to remember the real meaning. This business is ideal for people like you who are passionate about alternative medicine and have a strong desire to help others. Do not forget the main goal which is to alleviate the severity of symptoms associated with many medical conditions that adversely affect quality of life. If you feel identify with what I just said, you are more than welcome to join in us now!
