How can Australia take on the world’s cannabis market? Will we lead or follow when it comes to medicinal marijuana products?
Since Australia’s legalisation of Medical Cannabis in 2016. We have created over 25 medicinal cannabis companies that produce CBD and THC oil. South Korea, Thailand, Europe and other countries buy Australian medicinal cannabis.
In 2019, Australian Cannabis product choices had a 40% increase that is creating more competitive prices for medical patients. The average daily spending is between $11 to $14 a day for Cannabis patients.
Australia is not one to back down from a business opportunity that has the international marketing giddy with excitement. As each year a new country is legalising the medicinal use of Cannabis in their country, Australian companies are scaling up using three phases:
Phase 1) Acquire licensing and setting up local Australian commercial Cannabis facilities
Phase 2) Produce and deliver medical-grade Cannabis products to Australian pharmacies
Research shows that around 250,000 Australian patients are waiting to gain access to medical Marijuana. Initially, Cannabis is being used for more severe illnesses, but in the near-future, CBD and THC oils will be used to treat a wide range of ailments and diseases.

The Australian Cannabis market is poised to reach $2 billion by 2025 and have an industry value of $55 billion. But the real green gold mine lays in Asia’s untapped market as each country slowly legalises the medical use of Cannabis.
THC Global - A Great Cannabis Example
Companies like THC Global (ASX: THC) has been planning to take on the international Cannabis market with locally grown Australian Cannabis for years.
The main hurdles for Australian Cannabis companies in the medicinal Marijuana industry are licensing, regulatory approvals, the development of the facility and importing talent with the “know-how” that Australia is missing.
