The management team of Cannabis Strategic believes industry growth will continue at a rapid rate fueled not only by medical and recreational legalizations, but also due to the recent interest in hemp cultivation that comes as a result of the recent passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. A 2018 report by Grandview Research predicts the global industrial hemp market size to reach 10.6 billion USD by 2025, an amount that is propelled by an increased demand for high-quality cosmetics, personal care products, protein supplements, and other health food products.
