PALM BEACH, Florida, August 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
As the cannabis industry continues to grow across North America and consumer demand rises, the need for improved operations, new products and more proficient extraction, processing and grow facilities are creating unique revenue opportunities in numerous areas in the U.S. and Canada where the plant is now legal, both recreationally and medicinally. Active companies in the industry include Future Farm Technologies Inc. (OTC: FFRMF) (CSE: FFT), PotNetwork Holding Inc. (OTC: POTN), UbiquiTECH Software Corp. (OTC: UBQU), Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED.TO) (OTC: TWMJF) and Aphria Inc. (TSX: APH.TO) (OTC: APHQF)

"We believe this alcohol extraction technology is the best extraction equipment on the market today," says William Gildea, CEO of Future Farm. "The ability to process large amounts of cannabis flower into highly purified concentrates from day one will immediately benefit California's medical marijuana community."
Cannabis concentrates and edibles are the largest and fastest growing segments of the cannabis market, which many experts believe will overtake cannabis whole flower sales by 2020. The market for cannabis concentrates is booming because they are used to make edibles, topical ointments, capsules and other packaged products that require consistent, precise, and high quality oils, obtained from professional extraction methods. As the recreational industry begins to bud in California, many in the concentrates niche believe it's going to continue to explode in popularity.
