According to a report published by Grand View Research, the global legal cannabis market is expected to reach USD 146.4 Billion by end of 2025. The increasing acceptance of cannabis goods for numerous therapeutic applications for ailments such as cancer, mental disorders and chronic pain are projected to energize the growth of revenue in the near future. The report also indicates that the legal cannabis market has started to gain traction worldwide due to the high demand among consumers for recreational and medical products. As a result, large public and private investments for research and the development of safer forms of ingestion for cannabis such as tinctures, oils, vapes and other edibles are expected to positively strengthen market growth rates.

The legal cannabis market has become very competitive in recent years. According to Brightfield Group’s official blog post, “With cannabis dispensary and product data now going back over two years, our surveys of marijuana product availability in major US state markets reveal several clear indicators that the market is growing increasingly competitive and crowded… One example of this is exhibited by the increase in the variety of branded products available at U.S. dispensaries. Two years ago, the average U.S. dispensary carried 94 different types of branded marijuana products. One year ago, that number had grown to 118, and by January of this year, a typical dispensary carried over 150 different branded products.”
Crop Infrastructure Corp. CRXPF, +13.64% is also listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker (cse:CROP). Earlier last week, the Company announced that, “its tenant at the Humboldt County California property has started harvesting 10,000 sq. ft. of greenhouses.
The operation began in the first of five 2,000 sq. ft. greenhouses and the remaining four greenhouses will be harvested at the rate of one per week. As each greenhouse is harvested new starter plants will populate the canopy space. Once the crops have all been taken down an additional 20,000 sq. ft of canopy crop will be harvested at which time the plants should be mature.
CROP Infrastructure Director & CEO, Michael Yorke, states, “This is an exciting time at CROP as our California property’s tenact reaches its first harvest. First production is always a very important milestone as the results will be analyzed closely and will give an indication of what is not only achievable long term on this property, but also similar ones.”

GB Sciences Inc. (otcqb:GBLX) is a diverse cannabis company, focused on standardized cultivation and production methods; as well as biopharmaceutical research and development. Recently, the Company signed an agreement to initiate research collaborations with Dr. Norbert Kaminski, Professor of Pharmacology & Toxicology at Michigan State University. Dr. Kaminski will study toxicology, anti-inflammatory properties, and immunomodulatory activity of GB Sciences’ proprietary cannabis-based neuroprotective compounds using a diverse array of assays employing human primary white blood cells. Mounting evidence suggests that the inflammatory processes in the brain contribute to the pathologies of Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorders. The human primary blood cell screens performed at MSU are state-of-the-science models for evaluating the effects of compounds on the human immune system and allow MSU researchers to assess both the toxicity and anti-inflammatory potential of GB Sciences’ neuroprotective compounds, including their Parkinson’s formulations and others. “GB Sciences is honored to be working with Dr. Kaminski on this project. He pioneered studies of the effects of cannabis on the immune system,” explains Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, Chief Science Officer of GB Sciences.
