TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As Neutra Corp. (OTCQB:NTRR) works to deliver more and better products for cannabis patients and growers, the market for those products is projected to continue its historic rise well into the future. A new industry report forecasts that nationwide cannabis sales could reach $6.7 billion this year and grow to $21.8 billion by 2020.
The “State of Legal Marijuana Markets” report by research and investment firm the ArcView Group, states that 2016 could be a big year for cannabis in the U.S., with seven more states poised to potentially legalize it for adult use: Arizona, California, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada, Rhode Island and Vermont. Florida, Ohio, Missouri and Pennsylvania will vote on passing medical marijuana laws.
As more cannabis markets open up, demand is expected to rise 25 percent, according to the report. Such rapid growth has led to significant challenges for the industry, including supplying a huge amount of cannabis crops without the use of potentially hazardous pesticides and making cannabis treatments safer, more discrete and more reliable for patients.
With help from joint venture partners Surface to Air Solutions, Inc. (S2O2) and Oceanview Health Services Ltd., NTRR is hard at work marketing and promoting antimicrobial alternatives to harsh chemicals used in cannabis farms as well as a new line of cannabis topical products. In 2016, NTRR plans to deliver many new offerings for cannabis producers and consumers alike as the regulated cannabis industry continues to swell in the United States, Canada and beyond.
