The end of Cannabis prohibition is creating one of the fastest growing sectors. The laws governing this growth vary greatly on the city, state and federal level. What are some of the laws in Los Angeles, California and in the US? What about the other states that have approved medical or recreational Cannabis? There are hundreds of Cannabis Strains each with a different molecular composition. What is the difference between a Sativa or an Indica and what are Cannabinoids or Terpenes. Cannabis affects sleep, appetite, sex drive, inflammation, pain, seizures and cancer. It can be ingested through flower, edibles, oils, drinks or applied as a topical. Is this a green gold rush or a giant “bust” waiting to happen?
How is the business and investment environment developing in the Cannabis industry? Is this a good sector to invest in or just a “grey market” industry that is producing significant profitability based upon significant risk?
