According to Arcview Market Research, the regulated cannabis sales in North America totaled $6.9 billion in 2016, which is a 30 percent increase from 2015. Sales are projected to increase to $21.6 billion by the year 2021, representing a 26 percent compound annual growth rate. The data also points out that if sales from the illegal markets are included in the calculations, then cannabis consumers in the United States and Canada spent over $53 billion in 2016. The difference in these sales figures indicate the potential strength if the legalization process and decriminalization of cannabis continues. CURE Pharmaceutical Holding Corp.

Troy Dayton, CEO of Arcview Market Research said in a statement, "The enormous amount of existing, if illicit, consumer spending sets cannabis apart from most other major consumer-market investment opportunities throughout history; the cannabis industry doesn't need to create demand for a new product or innovation - it just needs to move demand for an already widely-popular product into legal channels."
CURE Pharmaceutical Holding Corp. (OTCQB: CURR) announced yesterday after the market closed that, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Patent #9,561,182, covering the method of manufacture and method of use of the company's proprietary oral thin film technology, for the administration of medicaments in order to treat animals.
"This patent adds an important aspect to our intellectual property portfolio, as it now ensures many of the same protections we enjoy in human products to animal products, which can be used in a variety of contexts, from households with pets to farms," said Rob Davidson, CEO of CURE Pharmaceutical. "This is also further validation of our unique approach to the development of oral thin film and our proprietary CureFilm technology."
"This action also represents an important expansion in the methodology, veterinarians may have, moving forward to deliver important medicines to the animals for whom they care," added Greg Strathe, DVM, CURE Pharmaceutical advisory board member, and co-owner SAHO, Small Animal Hospital of Owasso, Okla. "The expansion of our ability to improve care continues to be a priority for those in veterinary medicine, and I believe that this approach is a true innovation."
