Is Colombia poised to be the Seed Bank for the world?

As cannabis legalization spreads globally, the need for the well-established grey market genetics companies to go legal is crucial. Original landrace strains have been crossbred to create thousands of strains, yet many legal markets are often limited to sourcing genetics from Canada, Israel, Spain, or Bulgaria. In the United States, the grey market for seeds has exploded, with some of the hottest genetics coming out of legal recreational states including California, Colorado, Oregon, Alaska, and Washington.

This entrepreneur wants to cure the sick with high-quality cannabis

Lucia, a Colombian girl, suffered severe epileptic seizures since adolescence. Although she visited many doctors and specialists, at 35 years of age she had not found anything that would help her treat the debilitating symptoms of her illness.

One day she was able to travel to Canada where a specialist recommended a brand of medicinal cannabis oil that, as soon as she tried, significantly mitigated her ailments. Her spasms were less violent and her triggers less frequent.

Upon returning to her home country, however, Lucia could not locate the medicine that had benefited her so much. Although she tried many cannabidiol presentations available on her local market, none gave her the same result she had experienced in Canada.

Can Latin America become a world leader in the medical cannabis market?

The medical cannabis market in Latin America is expected to be worth $8.5bn in 2028. Health Europa explores the industry, highlighting the main drivers in the rising economy.

A detailed look at how Aurora Cannabis can produce 700,000 kilograms a year

The marijuana industry is growing like a weed. According to various Wall Street prognostications, the global cannabis industry could be generating upwards of $50 billion to $75 billion in annual sales roughly one decade from now. That's a boatload of cash, and all the more reason for pot growers to double down on capacity expansion.

Although there are 11 growers that are currently on pace for more than 100,000 kilograms in peak annual output, according to their respective management teams, none stands out more than Alberta-based Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB).

PharmaCielo granted new cannabis licenses in Colombia as competition heats up in Latin America

PharmaCielo (TSXV:PCLO) (CVE:PCLO), a Canadian based medical cannabis investor with global operations in Colombia, announced last Wednesday that they had been granted a proprietary license for 10 unique CBD and THC strains under Colombia’s national cultivar registry. These licenses come as a part of a national shift for Colombia to regulate its illegal drug trade and bring global prominence to one of its major agricultural products.

The Latin American country decriminalized small amounts of marijuana in the 1990s. It was a blow to the United States whose never-ending war on drugs, particularly cocaine and marijuana from Colombia, had gone on for decades.

Young people living in liberal states consume more marijuana, but have lower rates of marijuana dependence, according to a new study from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.

It also serves as a reminder that the effects of legalization will look different in different states.
