NEW YORK, October 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a research

report by New Frontier Data, the legal cannabis market was worth an estimated $6.6 billion in 2016, and is projected to reach more than $24 billion by 2025 or growing at a compound annual growth
rate (CAGR) of 16%. The medical cannabis market is expected to grow at 12% CAGR through 2025 and growing from $4.7 billion in 2016 to an estimated $13.3 billion in 2025. During the same period, sales of cannabis products for recreational use (or adult use) are projected to grow at a 21% CAGR, from $1.9 billion to $10.9 billion. Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. (OTC: KWFLF), GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH), Cara Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: CARA), Insys Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: INSY), Zynerba Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: ZYNE)

"Cannabis stocks significantly outperformed major indexes in 2016, fueled by speculative investment based on anticipated expansion of new legal markets. In the run up to the election, stocks increased by 207.8% and continued to rise, even with an uncertain future under the new administration. While recent comments by the Trump administration did have an initial dampening effect on the market, we have seen continued growth relative to Q4 2016 whereby cannabis stocks are still outperforming other sectors," said Giadha Aguirre De Carcer, CEO of New Frontier Data.

Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. (OTC: KWFLF) is also listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the ticker symbol 'CBW'. Just earlier today the company announced breaking news that it is excited to announce the launch of its inaugural C420 community event taking place on November 16, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada during the annual Marijuana Business Conference (MJBizCon).  

Borrowing from and following in the footsteps of the C100 Association, a non-profit, member-driven association of Canadian thought leaders in the San Francisco Bay Area committed to supporting and accelerating the innovation economy in Canada, the purpose of C420 is to bring together exceptional Canadian entrepreneurs operating in the cannabis space to share ideas, opportunities and best practices to foster a true community approach to the industry. As Cannabis Wheaton's mission is to create growth through diversity, C420 will provide a forum for a wide variety of Canadian cannabis entrepreneurs to network and collaborate in the heart of the largest cannabis conference in North America.

Ian Rapsey, Chief Creative Officer of Cannabis Wheaton stated, "Fostering and nourishing deep collaborative relationships in the Canadian cannabis community is paramount to building a strong foundation for the industry. It is our goal that what C100 is to Canadian technology entrepreneurs, C420 will be to Canadian cannabis entrepreneurs."  

Mike Lickver, Executive Vice President of Cannabis Wheaton commented, "I always look forward to producing events filled with great people sharing great ideas. Hosting the C420 in Vegas is a way for our team to capitalize on an environment that already brings so many Canadian entrepreneurs together during the pre-eminent conference of the year. We anticipate an exciting and entertaining evening shared by Canadian cannabis leaders that will become the first of many annual C420 events to come."  

Cannabis Wheaton's C420 event will be launched in collaboration with several industry friends who will be announced closer to launch.

Cara Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: CARA) is developing lead molecules that selectively modulate peripheral CB receptors without targeting CNS cannabinoid receptors.

Insys Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ: INSY) is developing treatments for a variety of conditions other than pain, including synthetic cannabidiol (CBD) for two types of pediatric epilepsy and Prader-Willi syndrome. Last year the company announced enrollment of the first patient in a Phase II clinical trial for the treatment of cocaine dependence using its pharmaceutical cannabidiol (CBD) product candidate. The study is being conducted by Dr. Didier Jutras-Aswad, MD, at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Center (CRCHUM) and is supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Company. 

Zynerba Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: ZYNE) is a clinical-stage specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing innovative pharmaceutically-produced transdermal cannabinoid treatments.
