The Great Insurance Shuffle: A Schengen Border Dispute Or Something Wider?

It does appear that Europe is actually the place where insurance coverage is going to be defined properly for the first time.

While cannabis reform has certainly arrived, full force, in Europe, it is already a different discussion than anywhere else on the planet.

While the same elements are present in Europe as anywhere else (rec vs. medical, federal vs. regional reform), they are in a different form and focus than is happening in say the U.S. or Canada or Israel.

The most crucial point of this debate, however, right now, is how cannabis is or will be covered by health insurance. Now and into the future. In Europe right now, that has also created a strange standoff across a normally peaceful, open border.

Cannabis Makes Its Way Into the G-20 Summit

The G-20 summit is currently taking place in Hamburg, Germany and marijuana has made its presence known.

Although some of the expected discussion topics include climate change, security and trade, we think medical marijuana will be a topic that takes center stage. 20% of the countries at the G-20 summit have legalized medical marijuana and it will be a topic that is nearly impossible to ignore. Every country is looking for ways to lower its debt level and marijuana is the answer.

Marijuana will not only create a new revenue stream but it will also significantly decrease expenses and allow countries to better allocate its resources.

Germany: The Global Cannabis Movement Continues

Germany is becoming a hotbed for Canadian cannabis producers and we think this trend is just getting started. 

Germany, the largest country in the European Union started 2017 by legalizing medical cannabis creating a major opportunity for cannabis businesses across the world. The legislation also will make cannabis available to people suffering from serious illnesses and available through health insurance plans.

These factors have led to a surge in the number of licensed Canadian medical cannabis producers focused on this market and we want to highlight some of the recent deals.

Canadian Weed Producers Will Dominate the Global Marijuana Market

“First-mover advantage.” Why Canadian weed producers will dominate the global marijuana market.

In marketing strategy, there’s a term called “first-mover advantage”. It’s when a few key players in a particular industry gain an advantage because they entered into the marketplace first. These companies are able to establish strong brand recognition, shore up the best sources of funding, and build a loyal customer base simply because there aren’t any competitors in the way during their first few years of operation. 


How German ethos and humor will shape its cannabis market

There are few places where German culture and cannabis are beginning to interact. Germans are not only accepting about this, but often find it funny. Not to mention the fact that many German firms already in this space, seem to think that all this fuss is downright humorous.
