How does the coronavirus (COVID-19) affect the Legal Cannabis industry and the overall Cannabis industry? It's an uncertain time for founders, operators, investors, and other members of the cannabis industry. Join us for a discussion regarding:
-Cannabis investment thesis, convictions, and predictions BEFORE and AFTER the coronavirus
-Similarities and differences from the current climate to the last recession (2007-2009)
-Status of federal legislative plans with respect to cannabis in light of the coronavirus
-Any new industry trends in light of a potential new normal
-Operating and fundraising as a CBD or THC company this year
Background on CBD, Hemp, etc:
Industrial hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol) became federally legal under the passing of the Farm Bill in December 2018. The hemp distinction is what makes the extract legal and acceptable in medical applications due to chemical uniqueness with high CBD quantities. It comes with the backing of the medical community, the World Health Organization, the nursing and the veterinary community. A Forbes article published May 20, 2019 says the CBD Market is projected to reach $20 billion by 2024, or within 5 short years.
