One of the Top Industries Being Transformed by Cannabis
Wednesday, March 20, 2019 11:40 AM
HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / March 20, 2019 / Analysts at Jefferies say the cannabis industry could reach $130 billion by 2029.
"This assumes full U.S. federal legalization, full recreational and medical legalization across Europe, full medical and recreational legalization across Lat Am, and cannabis disruption of a number of other industries," noted the analysts, as quoted by Yahoo Finance. "Industries at risk of disruption are pharma, alcohol, health and wellness, pet care and smoking cessation."
One of the biggest industries being transformed by cannabis are alcohol companies.
"Consumers will continue to look to cannabis products over alcohol for occasions when they are feeling creative, need to get motivated, or seeking health, medical or wellness benefits," notes a recent study from ISWR and BDS Analytics, as noted by FoodBev Media.
Some of biggest beneficiaries of the boom include Pure Global Cannabis Inc. (TSX-V: PURE) (OTC PINK: PRCNF), HEXO Corporation (NYSE:HEXO)(HEXO), and Canopy Growth Corporation (CGC)(TSX:WEED).
Pure Global Cannabis' (PURE)(PRCNF), through its wholly-owned subsidiary PureSinse Inc. just announced its partnership with Velvet Management Inc. to be its Canada-wide sales and distribution agent for its premium wellness, recreational, and craft cannabis products to be sold through provincially licensed stores and online retailers.
Velvet, a company created by the largest wine distributor in Canada, Philippe Dandurand Wines Ltd. will help ensure a strong retail and brand presence for Pure Global's non-medical lines of cannabis products with provincially regulated channels. Dandurand is the largest wine importer/agent in Canada, responsible for over 4 million cases or $625 million of annual sales volume across 3,000 retail points, with the largest wine salesforce in the country.
Velvet will soon have over 40 experienced sales representatives to service the close to two thousand licensed retail locations soon expected across Canada. Velvet has established direct relationships with provincial wholesalers and retail operators in all provinces giving Pure Global's branded portfolio immediate, direct access to each point of distribution in Canada's consumer Cannabis market, with exclusivity for the premium and craft product categories.
"This is significant for our sales, distribution, and route to market strategy to expedite our reach to provincially licensed retailers," said Malay Panchal, CEO of Pure Global. "Velvet's highly professional and experienced team was an obvious choice when further asking who has the track record to make us leaders in every product category we want to enter."
