5 Cannabis Stocks That Could Capitalize On The Booming EU Cannabis Sector

Read entire article here.

During the last year, the cannabis sector has been in the middle of a major transition that has been centered around the expansion into new markets. The European Union (EU) has been a point of emphasis for these cannabis operators and we are favorably on this strategy for growth.

The country is expected to see 1 billion shekels ($273 million) in annual medical marijuana revenue as Israel is one of the world’s top producers.

The government approved exports in January of this year, but due to the months-long political gridlock in Israel, the process stretched out for longer than expected.

Previous efforts to cash-in on Israel’s booming pot industry overseas were reportedly hindered last year by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s close relationship with US President Donald Trump.
