The worldwide trend toward marijuana legalization has triggered a wave of growth opportunities for investors.
And the growth is projected to continue – in a huge way – over the next several years.
In fact, according to industry analyst Arcview Research, the global legal marijuana market is expected to reach $146.4 billion by the end of 2025 – and will see a compound annual growth rate of 24.9% from 2017 to 2025.
Already, a number of companies have helped investors collect double- and triple-digit returns over the past 12-18 months as Canada prepared for legalization of recreational Cannabis on October 17.
Here’s what I mean:
As the North American market continues to mature, investors looking for maximum upside potential should consider looking beyond North America.
ICC International Cannabis Corp (OTC:KNHBF | CSE:WRLD) ) is positioning itself to have the opportunity to become the Walmart or Amazon for the global marijuana supply chain.
You see, ICC International Cannabis Corp (OTC:KNHBF | CSE:WRLD) has been gobbling up distribution opportunities worldwide.
They recently secured rights to distribute marijuana to about 35,000 pharmacies in 16 countries through their purchase of 50% of Marathon Global Inc., which has an exclusive agreement with Cosmos Holdings Inc., a European based pharmaceutical distributor.
And that is just one of the breakthrough moves they’ve made in the past few years.
The company is building one of the first vertically integrated global cannabis supply chains.
Because as the worldwide trend of legalizing marijuana accelerates the industry faces a new problem.
There is no existing global supply chain to get cannabis from the farm to consumers around the world. It’s a big, industry-wide problem.
How do you get cannabis grown in Canada into the hands of consumers in Europe?
And it’s the problem ICC International Cannabis Corp (OTC:KNHBF | CSE:WRLD) has already started solving.
A Herculean Supply Management Problem…
You see – marijuana isn’t corn flakes or iPhones.
It isn’t even like other regulated consumer products like alcohol or cigarettes.
The legal regime for cannabis is in flux around the world. Even in soon-to-be legal Canada, the rules will be wildly different from province to province.
When you add the international scene to the picture, it’s even more complex.
ICC International Cannabis Corp (OTC:KNHBF | CSE:WRLD) is working to solve the problem.
They’re taking a two-prong approach:
1) An Automated Kiosk For The Cannabis Market
2) A Global Distribution Network Spanning 4 Continents
The automated kiosk device is called the BioCanna ADM Retail System.
It’s an intelligent automated retail kiosk for the dispensing of Cannabis and related products in both medical and commercial markets – direct to consumer.
With strict regulations in place throughout the global Cannabis market, the BioCanna ADM could offer Cannabis retailers a means to meet and surpass requirements.
You might eventually find them at 1,000s of locations.
The first asset in their distribution network is Marathon Global Inc. In June 2018, ICC Cannabis International closed its purchase of 50% of Marathon.
It’s their beachhead for the 742 million strong European market.
Through their 50% interest in Marathon, they have an exclusive agreement with Cosmos Holdings, to procure and distribute medical cannabis products and all cannabis derivatives.
There are over 110 clients in the Cosmos Holdings distribution network, representing approximately 35,000 pharmacies in 16 countries across Europe.
Their next major asset is Aricannabis BioTech Corp.
Aricannabis works on an exclusive basis with NuCare Health to provide Cannabis products to over 2,800 independent and corporate pharmacies across South Africa. In August 2018 ICC entered into a definitive agreement to buy Aricannabis for 2,000,000 ICC shares.
This may the gateway to the rest of the African continent.
In South America they have an LOI to purchase Cannabis Medical Group SAS.
This Colombian entity holds licences to cultivate, produce, hold, sell and export cannabis and cannabis derivatives – both domestically and internationally.
Cannabis Medical Group have acquired 13 hectares of optimal agricultural land located in Funza, the heart of the Bogota savanna, which is also one of the safest areas in Colombia.
Under the terms of the LOI, ICC will pay US$2.0 million, and it will issue 30 million common shares to buy Cannabis Medical Group. This will give ICC International Cannabis Corp (OTC:KNHBF | CSE:WRLD) true seed to store presence.
In Europe International Cannabis, through its subsidiary, Danavian, controls one of twelve Danish medical cannabis cultivation and distribution licenses.
Danavian has engaged an Israeli Cannabis organic cultivation and management company, Sababa Sciences Inc. Sababa Sciences will provide end-to-end management including the implementation of advanced Israeli agricultural technologies for high-quality medical cannabis treatments.
Danavian and Sababa Sciences have designed a 55,000-square-foot, fully automated greenhouse facility that will meet IMC-GAP, ISO:9001 and European GMP standards. Finished cannabis and cannabis derivatives produced by Danavian will be sold through Denmark’s retail pharmacy network.”
With the Fortune 500 piling into legal marijuana in droves, their timing is perfect.
Constellation Brands $4 Billion Investment Sets The Cannabis Industry On Fire
On August 15th, the maker of Corona and Modelo beers announced it had taken a 9.9 percent stake in the Canadian cannabis company Canopy Growth Corp (NYSE:CGC), which can be increased to 38%.
The deal gives Constellation the first toehold in the cannabis-infused beverage industry the brewer said it expects to soon be legalized across the United States.
They’re not alone either. The legitimacy this deal grants to “Big Cannabis” has swung open the doors to AAA brands from a multitude of industries.
On August 24th, multiple sources reported to BNN Bloomberg that Diageo Plc – the world’s biggest alcohol company – was pursuing a deal with a Canadian cannabis firm.
They are reportedly holding serious discussions with at least three major producers as they seek to add marijuana-infused beverages to their portfolio.
Less than a month later, Coca-Cola entered the fray – announcing talks with Aurora Cannabis to introduce drinks infused with CBD extracted from marijuana.
But these Fortune 500 companies still need to figure out how to get their product to market.
And ICC International Cannabis Corp (OTC:KNHBF | CSE:WRLD) just might have the solution.
