Sensible regulations are needed to ensure that investments in the emerging cannabis industry are protected as much as reasonably possible. Wherever the cannabis industry is allowed to operate it encounters a highly regulated environment, which to some degree is necessary in order to convince lawmakers to transition an illegal market into a regulated one. One of the most important aspects of investing in the cannabis industry is knowing the regulatory environment you want to invest in. This panel will provide a quick overview of the latest regulatory developments in Germany, Switzerland and the EU.

In general, large US MSOs strategy for expansion has mostly been within the United States, primarily looking to acquire assets/businesses within emerging states' cannabis markets. European companies have adopted a similar growth strategy with a significant focus on catering the European market; however, Canadian LP have been focused on implementing a significantly more international expansionist strategy in emerging markets around the world. Due to the stark differences in expansion and business philosophy, cannabis companies have several key differences in their business formulas in both operating and investment strategies that define business in their respective markets.

    History Of The Relationship Between The Capital Markets And Cannabis And M&A In The Global Markets

Due to the rapidly changing nature of cannabis legislation around the world, the capital markets have traditionally had a volatile relationship with cannabis companies, particularly due to the bubble seen in the cannabis market in the late 2010s. Several significant trends, however, have become apparent in recent years particularly in the increasing use of the debt capital markets. Among the trends in both the capital markets and in M&A behavior, several key M&A transactions and capital raises have shown the changing perception of cannabis among public and private investors and the overall change in investing behavior of both investors and large cannabis companies.

    The World Is Changing And So Must Your Strategies

How to strategically navigate and succeed with investment opportunities and business development in the expanding world cannabis arena.

Investors are eager to enter the global cannabis market which is projected to reach well over 100 Billion USD by the end of 2026. Investment enthusiasm must be tempered by calculated planning and awareness of the inherent risks in both the public and the private sectors of this rapidly evolving sector. As the expansion of the EU market resumes in the wake of the pandemic, the opportunities are surging, with some on a trajectory towards significant global impact. The EU will be the 2nd largest emerging cannabis market after the USA. It’s crucial to learn from the successes and failures of the U.S. and Canadian markets in order to strategically place future investments in companies that are positioned to become global leaders and epically pay off. In this session, Nic Easley, CEO of 3C Consulting and Managing Director of Multiverse Capital, will walk investors and entrepreneurs through how to plan for and determine the best current and future global opportunities.
