NEW YORK, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

A report by Arcview Market

Research indicates that the North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products, up 34% from 2015. Many successful brands have launched extracts, edibles, topicals, and other types of products that are
leading consumers to spend more. In the cutting-edge Colorado market, they have reduced traditional dried flowers to less than 56% of the business. More states passed laws to open new markets and expand existing ones in 2016 than in any previous year. These new markets will drive sustained revenue growth in the years ahead. The legal cannabis market is expected to grow at a 27% CAGR to $22.6 billion by 2021. AmeriCann Inc. (OTC: ACAN), AXIM® Biotechnologies, Inc. (OTC: AXIM), Cannabis Sativa.

Retail sales taxes in state-sanctioned cannabis markets totaled more than $500 million in 2016, and in Colorado, Washington, along with Oregon alone, $836 million in adult-use sales began in 2014.

Millions more are consuming it legally in adult-use states with little or no negative impact.
