NEW YORK, February 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Cannabis is arguably the fastest growing industry in the world, according

to a research report by Arcview Market Research. Regulated cannabis sales in North America totaled $6.9 billion in 2016, a 30 percent increase from 2015. Sales are projected to increase to
$21.6 billion by the year 2021 representing a 26 percent compound annual growth rate.

This collaborative agreement brings together the expertise of a leading Cannabis Research Company, Cannabis Science, and the research strength of Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center.
