According to new data published Arcview Market Research, a leading publisher of cannabis market research, the legal cannabis market is projected to continue to grow at a 27 percent CAGR through 2021, despite conflicting signals from the current presidential administration. The report created by Arcview's data partner, BDS Analytics, points out that the two biggest drivers of growth in this industry are the passage and subsequent implementation of new adult-use laws and branded product subcategories. Examples of these subcategories would be vape cartridges, edibles, and other alternative consumption methods. Invictus MD Strategies Corporation (OTC: IVITF) (CSE: IMH.CN), Cannabis Science Inc.
