You pull up to a drive-through dispensary, phone in hand. A few taps later, your cannabis crypto transaction is complete. Seeing your generous tip, the budtender smiles and hands you a bag of fresh Tangie. You crack open the bag, sending a swirling aroma of skunky citrus into the air.
Not a pipe dream….if you live in a legal region and your local dispensary accepts Stellar CannaCoin, then this could be you. But before I tell you more, let’s talk about why there’s so much excitement for cannabis-related technologies, services, and products [2, 3].
Cannabis is one of the most valuable agricultural products, with U.S. sales projected to surpass $50 billion in a few years, while global sales exceed $100 billion. But these are the early days. As more countries legalize, the growth rate will continue to climb. With its medical benefits, industrial uses, and recreational popularity, the plant could soon rival the tobacco and alcohol industries in global revenue [4-9].
How Crypto Helps the Cannabis Industry
Current laws make it difficult for cannabis businesses to get loans, insurance, and credit cards. They’re forced to store and transport cash….a major security risk. By contrast, cryptocurrencies are stored in digital wallets protected by secret keys and recovery phrases (12 – 24 randomly generated words). If owners keep this information in a safe place, the accounts are highly secure .
The early-stage cannabis industry struggles with heavy taxes and strict regulations. Business owners can’t wait around for politicians….they need money now. Crypto not only offers solutions, it will continue to help the industry as it evolves….providing alternatives to high-interest loans that are risky for smaller businesses .
The Power of Media
History shows that mass media is powerful.
Mainstream media and social media platforms have combined forces to become superpowers. Breaking news stories go viral on social media platforms which boost their reach exponentially.
Positive cannabis news can lead to major rallies on stock and crypto markets. For example….after being elected as Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau began working on marijuana legalization. By 2017, word had spread that legalization was becoming a reality, and the markets reacted .
In early 2018, cannabis stocks Aurora Cannabis, Aphria, and Emerald Health Therapeutics hit all-time highs. But it wasn’t just stocks that rallied….there was a buying frenzy in cannabis-related crypto.
The U.S. also seized the opportunity: 37 states legalized medical marijuana, and 19 legalized recreational. Maryland is likely to become #20 after the mid-term elections .
Following this trend, federal legalization is inevitable. If history repeats itself as it often does in markets, we’re due for a U.S. rally in cannabis-related stocks and crypto.
Exactly when this catalyst will occur is a matter of debate, but one thing almost all cannabis investors agree on: it will be massive. In 2017, Canada had a population of 36 million. In 2022, the U.S. population is 335 million.
More than 20% of Americans have invested in, traded, or used crypto .
October 6th, 2022, Biden took three positive steps towards broad legalization:
- Announced a pardon of prior federal offenses of marijuana possession
- Urged governors to pardon state offenses
- Attorney General and Secretary of Health and Human Services will start a process to review how marijuana should be scheduled under federal law
