THE NORTH AMERICAN CANNABIS REPORT: 3RD EDITION – KEY INSIGHTS

Prohibition Partners is proud to present The North American Cannabis Report: 3rd Edition, which projects the continent’s adult-use cannabis market to be worth US$66.4 billion by 2026. In addition to market sizing projections based on exclusive, scrupulous data collection, industry expert Q&As and analysis, this year’s report highlights the top trends in mature and emerging markets across North America.

2021 was one of the most exciting and challenging years for the cannabis industry yet, with rapid-fire and billion-dollar mergers and acquisitions, massive progress on US state legalisation and right-sizing markets in Canada, California, Colorado, all pointing towards a more cohesive, cross-border industry to come.
