Cannabis has been present in Latin American countries for centuries. The Latin America and Caribbean Cannabis Report investigates pioneering legalisation from Colombia and Uruguay, joined in some degree by Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and St Kitts. They are all following the path of decriminalisation and with many taking steps towards full legalisation.

CBD – A Supply Overview

CBD is a vast and complex subject area that touches on all aspects of the cannabis market – medical, pharmaceutical, recreational and packaged consumer products. Within this report, CBD – A Supply Overview, Prohibition Partners examines legislation, cultivation, extraction, production, finance and retail across the global CBD industry. Moving away from the fragmented structure that has characterised the industry, we document the rise of vertical integration and the emergence of regulation.

The Pharmaceutical Cannabis Report

The rapid growth of cannabis-based medicines is becoming a significant disruptor of the global pharmaceutical industry, but the point of entry has been complicated by the historic scheduling of cannabis as a schedule 1 narcotic. However, pharmaceutical cannabis products such as Epidyolex, Sativex and Dronabinol have become serious alternatives to traditional pharmaceuticals and are beginning to shift how the pharma industry approaches cannabis.

The Germany Cannabis Report

The Germany Cannabis Report is the first and only free-to-access report to focus on the biggest economy in Europe and its burgeoning cannabis market. Having legalised medical cannabis in 2017 and achieved a market value of over €73 million in 2018, Germany is set to play a central role in the European market in the coming years, which is estimated to be worth over €123 billion by 2028.

The North American Cannabis Report

The North American Cannabis Report is the first and only free-to-access report on the cannabis industry in the United States and Canada, a market worth a potential $47.3 billion by 2024. Although the US is currently the most profitable cannabis industry in the world, the lack of legislative clarity at the federal level is disrupting the industry. Canada has taken a leadership position at the international level, having legalised recreational cannabis in October 2018. The market is set to grow at an unprecedented rate over the next five years, as legislation shifts in favour of liberalisation and consumer industries begin to move in on the cannabis space.

The Cannabis Legal Report™

Prohibition Partners’ inaugural The Cannabis Legal Report™ provides the most comprehensive review of the legislation and regulation governing the emerging legal cannabis market. Attitudes towards medical cannabis are shifting amongst the public, and policymakers, professionals and investors are beginning to take note. This report runs through the crucial insights needed to understand the burgeoning cannabis market which could be worth an estimated €123 billion by 2028 in Europe alone.

The European Cannabis Report™ 4th Edition

Home to more than 740 million people, a population more than double that of the United States and Canada combined, Europe is set to become the world’s largest legal cannabis market over the next five years. In the last 12 months alone, the European cannabis industry has grown more than in the last six years. Six countries have announced new legislation and over €500million has been invested in European cannabis businesses and as our exclusive research shows, Europe’s cannabis market is estimated to be worth up to €123 billion by 2028.

The Asian Cannabis Report™

Asia, the world’s most populous continent, has a relatively low prevalence of cannabis use at just 2% annually. However, this is the equivalent to an estimated 85.5 million people, making Asia a key market in the long-term expansion plans of producers, investors and operators. As the historically conservative stance on cannabis begins to soften, the medical market alone could be worth as much as US$5.8 billion by 2024.

The African Cannabis Report™

While cannabis remains illegal in most African countries, many nations are keen to embrace cultivation as a way to boost their economies. Cannabis is already widely grown and consumed across the continent with production currently standing at around 38,000 tonnes and consumption rates at 13.2%. While any path towards a legalised and regulated cannabis industry presents a number of significant challenges due to opaque laws and inconsistent enforcement, Africa’s climate, affordable land and low-cost labour offer enormous opportunities in a market that could exceed $US7.1 billion by 2023.

Medical Cannabis in Europe – The GMP Standards Guide

Prohibition Partners is excited to announce the launch of 'Medical Cannabis in Europe - The GMP Standards Guide', in association with Orion GMP Solutions.

The European Cannabis Report™

Regulatory changes, public support and evidence of cannabis’ therapeutic effects are driving growth in the European cannabis industry. The market itself has the potential to be worth €115 billion but the size of Europe’s opportunity is counterbalanced by the scale of complexity in navigating each country’s unique legal framework.
