INFOGRAPHIC: 5 Things Investors Need to Know About Cannabis

Equities Editors Desk |

Over the past two years, the legalization of cannabis is increasingly dominating the national discourse in the U.S. as well as in Canada. Yet, for all the cultural momentum and regulatory progress thus far, this revolutionary market catalyst remains one of the more misunderstood issues for both Wall Street and Main Street alike, even as the majority of the population has shifted to a pro-legalization position. For those that have gotten ahead of the curve and are seizing this unique window of opportunity, the runway is wide open to establish themselves as the dominant players in this young space.

As part of our coverage program on The Future of Cannabis, Equities.com and Viridian Capital Advisors wanted to present five key facts every investor needs to know when looking at the burgeoning industry. We asked our friends at Visual Capitalist to do what they do best and help us create an infographic that encapsulates the major trends and facts about this multi-billion dollar industry as it prepares to break out into the mainstream. Check out the infographic below and tell us what you think in the comments!
