NEW YORK, May 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
According to Grand View Research,Inc. the global medical cannabis market is expected to reach a value of USD 55.8 billion by 2025. The rising number of states and countries where new rules for using cannabis in therapeutic applications is one of the crucial
While California is the largest market, Canada is projected to show strong sales as well. According to CBC, Canada is one of only two countries, together with the Netherlands - that currently exports cannabis, allowing firms in Canada to take instant benefit of recent medical cannabis legalizations in more than 20 countries. CBC reported that the, "offerings in today's Canada medical marijuana market differ little from those used recreationally - the smokable plant and, more recently, oil extracts. More than 70 companies have licenses from the federal drug regulator, Health Canada, to cultivate, produce and sell medical marijuana, with more than half those licenses granted in 2017 or 2018."
Snipp Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SNIPF) is also listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the ticker (TSX-V: SPN). Earlier this week the company announced breaking news that it, "has incorporated a 100% owned subsidiary in the United States to facilitate it to do business with Cannabis companies based in the United States. The reason the Company chose to incorporate this subsidiary is twofold. The first is to enable the Company to be able to leverage its software platforms to service Cannabis businesses with creative business models that could include equity based and performance compensation partnerships and secondly to isolate its core business given that at the U.S Federal Level Cannabis is still a Schedule 1 controlled substance."
"Since the launch of the Cannabis Marketing Resource Center we have received a lot of interest and had many discussions with multiple players in the US and Canadian market. Some of these discussions have led to recommendations that have included working in a more partnership type structure that could involve an equity component as part of the payment mix for the use of our platform and services by these potential clients. As a Company we are open to working with companies to design programs that enable our shareholders to enjoy the upside of this nascent but fast growing industry and creating a separate legal entity to enable that therefore makes a lot of sense", said Atul Sabharwal, Founder & CEO of Snipp. The Cannabis space is rapidly evolving and we have seen a few US based companies dual listing on the Canadian exchanges. A great example is a company like iAnthus, A CMRC member, who pioneered listing in both markets. They have set the stage for a whole new crop of companies based in the US to list in Canada many of whom have not only joined our Cannabis Marketing Resource Center but some of whom are also in deep discussions with us on signing a Managed Service Agreement which allows Snipp to become an approved vendor of theirs locking in these clients for the future as their marketing needs evolve. We look forward to sharing some of progress we are making in converting our CMRC members to paying clients over the next few quarters Visit the Snipp website at http://www.snipp.com/ for Snipp's full suite of solutions and examples of Snipp programs.
