Benefits of an Investment Fund in the Cannabis Industry

There are tremendous opportunities to be had in the legal cannabis industry. If you’re reading this then you’ve probably seen the numbers: $2.7 billion market value in 2015 behind 74% growth in 2014 with an ancillary market that could be three times the size of the market of the plant itself. These enormous positives obviously come with some challenges, and while all investments involve some degree of risk cannabis investment definitely has some unique hurdles. How can a new investor make sense of the variance in state and local regulations (or lack thereof), 280e, and the trials of an emerging market? It’s certainly possible for savvy individuals to navigate this avalanche of information with a lot of time and work. For others, though, an investment vehicle such as a diversified investment fund could be the key to mitigating the risks of cannabis investment.
