REPORT: GLOBAL CANNABIS SALES GROW 48% TO $15 BILLION IN 2019

A new report cannabis sales from industry stalwart Arcview Market Research, whose flagship annual report, The State of Legal Marijuana Markets, has become the industry standard for market analysis and data in the legal cannabis sector, cites big sales and bigger opportunities for investors looking for private placement investing opportunities right now in the industry.

Global cannabis sales rose 48% to $15 billion in 2019, driven by “growth in sales in Canada and seven U.S. states that saw sales more than double” according to a Business Wire press release:

“Continued consumer adoption in maturing markets such as Colorado and new adult-use markets including Massachusetts contributed to 45% growth in adult-use sales to $8.9 billion. However, medical-only states and countries actually grew faster – up 54% growth to $6.2 billion,” the release stated. “The United States saw 81% of spending in 2019, although superior growth in the rest of the world will continue balancing the market across the US, Canada, and Europe through 2024.”

That 45% coming in from the Bay State is noteworthy considering the slow rollout of adult-use retail storefronts and other issues surrounding the Massachusetts legal cannabis market.

As far as what investors should pay attention to comes from one of the key takeaways is summed up by this comment from Troy Dayton, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of The Arcview Group (emphasis ours):

“These stunning growth numbers prove the negative stigma of cannabis is coming to an end in the US. What’s incredible is the realization that so much potential growth remains both domestically and globally. With sales jumping nearly 50% in an industry with only a handful of markets online, this report quantifies why there’s so much anticipation from producers and shrewd investors waiting for national and international markets to open up or mature. The fallout in public market valuations is not trending with the tremendous growth curve of this exploding market. That discrepancy represents a unique and time-bound opportunity for investors.”

Other key points on cannabis sales in the forecasts mentioned in the release:

  1. Sales in 2020 are forecast to increase by 38% driven by growth in established markets and continued geographic expansion, including Illinois’ recreational market opening.
  2. Despite medical spending outgrowing adult-use spending in 2019, adult-use markets will be the primary drivers of global market growth through 2024.
  3. More than $400 million in Massachusetts adult use sales in the first year of an adult use East Coast market.
  4. Florida continues to perform strongly with over $650 million in sales despite being a medical-only market.
  5. New consumers continue to enter the market at a rapid pace with the development of new products and social acceptance.

Between the more than $400 million in cannabis sales across the first year of adult-use sales in the Commonwealth, and the stunning numbers coming out of the first 12 days of sales for Illinois, there are more and more reasons investors are seeking the top 1% of private placement investment opportunities in the legal cannabis market.

How Family Office Club works with Cannapreneur Partners
Just about every event the Family Office Club produces has someone that wants to sponsor it from the legal cannabis space. They’ve become familiar with the space and the area of the cannabis people try to make sense of, from where to invest, learning about federal law vs state laws regarding legal markets, and so on. As the exclusive thought leader on cannabis for The Family Office Club, we have built a strong relationship through regular speaking engagements on stage at their investor summits while fostering new strategic partnerships and investor deal flow. Additionally, Family Office Club Founder, Richard Wilson, is appointed as a director on Cannapreneur Partners Board of Directors.

"There is a lot of education needed, and it’s an area that we’re going to have a group on stage [from the industry] at almost any Family Office Club investor event anyway, so it’s much more productive to be aligned with a firm that is in line with our mentality and long term vision of doing business. As I’ve mentioned in my books and Family Office Club podcasts, having high integrity, and aligning all parts of people on a team with shared values means an entrepreneur is more aligned in their industry and investor can put things in their portfolio to get better valuations in the long run." - Richard Wilson, Founder of the Family Office Club

How does the Family Office Club works with Investors?
As one of the top thought leaders in bringing partners and clients investments, capital raises, and private capital placement for high net worth families, the Family Office Club is making the industry more efficient while helping clients navigate a frustrating area: A lot of ultra-wealthy families don’t speak to each other.

By interviewing hundreds of family offices on stage every year, as well as in their Family Office Club podcast, and in the books they have published, the Family Office Club has proven they can help the investment industry be more efficient.

"Doing so with credible counter parties that share our long term views is we’re keeping an eye out for. Whenever there’s a new opportunity, there are some investors that get in early and take a mega view of an industry, kind of like what we have at the Family Office Club. I can relate to that perspective and take that view instead of defining themselves as a retail operator in space or defining themselves as one piece of space they’re trying to put together an ecosystem and a strategic platform. We don’t define ourselves as running a Family Office biz, we’re trying to grow the Family Office marketplace and make it easier to close deals with family offices." - Richard Wilson, Founder of the Family Office Club
