Times are changing in the industry. Even the number of Americans who support cannabis legalization at the federal level is at an all-time high, nearly five times what it was at 12% in 1969. Reform is on the horizon, but what does that mean for growers, dispensaries, and pros who’ve already been adapting to the constant industry changes? Here’s the short answer: We continue fighting to be the best.
The Current Legalization Landscape
Worldwide, over 183 million people use some form of cannabis, and with recreational legalization in place in several states (and medical cannabis legal in many more) across the U.S., this number continues to skyrocket day by day. Good, quality cannabis is in high demand, meaning everyone—from big corporations to small farmers—is looking to get a piece of the pie. Luckily, no matter how legalization efforts net out in the near or distant future, a booming industry will always leave growers triumphant.
The Future of Cannabis Legalization
Here’s one thing we can’t deny: The future of cannabis is bright. From job creation to economic impact and everything in between, federal legalization of cannabis will change the industry for the better.
How Tech Can Advance the Industry
In one way or another, tech always seems to find its way into emerging industries. For cannabis, we’re already seeing key buzzwords, like machine learning and automation, enter the conversation. For growers, these technological advances can help them provide the quality and quantity that consumers desire in shorter timespans. With Anden, and our new patented VLGR (Variable-Speed, Low Grain Refrigerant) technology, growers far and wide are already reaping these benefits and more.
Economic Impact and Growth
Thanks to today’s growers, cannabis sales have been rapidly increasing year over year, with industry net worth projected to be upwards of $100 billion by 2030. With such rapid growth, employment demands are also increasing with estimates of 20,000+ jobs opening up over the next five years. These developments help our growers continue to grow (literally) and thrive.
Where Anden Stands
Despite the rapid changes, potential threats, and more within the industry, Anden is here to stay. We’re built for grow and will continue to adapt to the ever-changing landscape without cutting corners or compromising. Because, like our growers, we’re here to deliver and will always fight to be the best.
