ASBURY PARK, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / December 4, 2018 / Marijuana prohibition is incrementally ending as more and more states are expanding medical marijuana programs and some are going all-in on full recreational legalization. Recently one entire major Western country, Canada, made the jump to full recreational legalization for Canadian adults. Public attitudes toward legalization have shifted to the point where a strong majority of various age groups and other demographics in the U.S. show decisive support for full-scale legalization. Amidst these changes, the legal cannabis business world is growing rapidly and a unique marijuana business-to-business directory is emerging as an important tool for budding marijuana businesses, see here https://marijuanawerx.com/.
There are many facets to the legal medical and recreational marijuana industries. Some examples, in addition to the obvious ones such as growers and dispensaries, include the emerging cannabis and CBD oil infused beverage industry, a niche that is attracting potential interest from major players in both the soft drink and alcoholic beverage industries. There are markets for business insurance for cannabis companies, brand marketing, packaging, legal services, security and transportation, lab testing and compliance, production equipment for growers, and much more. Then there is credit card payment processing and banking for cannabis businesses, a federally regulated area which will likely be on hold until federal marijuana laws change.
There are also expanding job opportunities in the legal marijuana business including growers, dispensary employees, security personnel, production managers, licensing and regulation compliance, general compliance managers and more. In order to help facilitate this expanding jobs market, a number of private firms are offering training and certification for prospective cannabis industry workers. Private training firms offering course training online for these jobs include companies such as Green CulturED, The Grow School, The Cannabis Career Institute, Oaksterdam University, Cannabis Training University, THC University, Cloverleaf University, Cannabis Training Institute, Trichome Institute and others.
The MarijuanaWerx cannabis business directory can accommodate directory business listings and profiles for all of these niches and more. For niches not currently listed, MarijuanaWerx will create a category as appropriate. Listings on MarijuanaWerx are free. The company offers enhanced listings for a small fee in addition to offering advertising programs to industry participants.
Another large niche in the cannabis business is the edibles market, as well as the market for vaporizers as more and more people abandon smoking marijuana for either vaping or edibles. Some of the leading vaporizer companies are profiled on MarijuanaWerx including DaVinci Vaporizers, Storz-Bickel vaporizers, Pax, DynaVap Vaporizers and others. States that have legalized weed such as Colorado, Washington, Oregon and California are experiencing significant growth for vaping products including both for vaporizers for concentrated oils and those for dry herb vaping.
Edible sales in the United States and Canada are projected to hit over $4 billion by year 2022. A survey conducted in Colorado last year indicated that 64% of pot consumers in Colorado had used marijuana edibles over a 6 month period compared with 81% who consumed cannabis via inhalation. In California, a poll showed similar usage with 55% consuming pot edibles and 88% using inhalation. So, edibles are huge with spending on such hitting $1 billion in 2017 in the U.S. and Canada and expected to grow to $1,5 billion in 2018 and eventually to $4.1 billion in 2022.
