05:28 03/08/2019

The cannabis boom is just in the early stages of major growth.



 



Over the next decade, spending on worldwide cannabis could reach $57 billion by 2027, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics.  One of the largest groups of buyers, they note, will be in North America, where sales are expected to reach $47.3 billion in 10 years. 



 



Analysts at Cowen note the U.S. cannabis market could rocket to $16 billion by 2025.  



 



Even analysts at Piper Jaffray say we could be looking at a global market value of between $250 billion to $500 billion a year. “We believe the long-term growth can be significant — both from transitioning illicit trade to legal sales, medical sales, and from transitioning sales in health [and] wellness categories to CBD-infused products,” said the analysts, as quoted by MarketWatch. 



 



One area seeing a major impact from the boom is in consumer-packaged goods.



 



As executives from big retail brands and consumer-packaged good companies just begin to pour into the cannabis industry, it’s creating sizable opportunities in up-and-coming companies.  



 



In fact, one of the top companies to watch is SLANG Worldwide Inc. SLGWF.
