Today, governments worldwide are beginning to change their stance on cannabis and embrace its medicinal possibilities. Studies are finding that medicinal cannabis is an effective, affordable and natural treatment for a variety of illnesses. As such, legal cannabis markets are evolving rapidly around the world.
The growth has largely been driven by Canada and in the United States where recreational consumption has been legalised. Other countries like the United Kingdom and Germany are also beginning to make great advancements in the use of plant based therapies.
In 2016, the Australian government established a licensing and permit scheme for the lawful research, cultivation and manufacturing of medicinal products. With superior climate conditions and high green standards, Australia has positioned itself to be a key supply centre for the rest of the world.
