10 Biggest Marijuana Companies in the World

Marijuana is the word that you hear you think of drugs, addicton and so on, but yet there are companies that serve people with marijuana – now let’s check out the list of the biggest marijuana companies in the world! Believe it or not, but marijuana companies are among the safest and best investments in the world, as it’s a multi-billion business with excellent forecasts.

The global marijuana market increased by 37% in 2018, and the global spending on marijuana reached $57 billion last year. Its 33% was on medical marijuana, and 67% on recreational marijuana.

Uruguay was the first to legalize marijuana in 2013, and Canada followed it in 2018. In US, the recreational weed states are California, Massachusetts, Michigan, Maine, Nevada, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Alaska,  Washington, D.C., New York and New Jersey and Vermont. The US should easily become the largest marijuana market in the world unless Europe decides to legalize marijuana. As $1,3 trillion are spent for healthcare, Europe would hardly have any competition. Italy and Germany took the lead , while the UK produces the largest amount of medical cannabis in the world. As for the sales, Australia’s cannabis market is reported to reach $1.2 billion by the year of 2027.

Now, without a furthet ado, let’s see what Insider Monkey have investigated for us in their latest article about the biggest marijuana companies in the world.
