With the legal cannabis and hemp industries continuously growing, from product development and manufacturing to adjacent services, so is the competition, making it increasingly difficult for companies in the field to stand out, despite the size of the market and the rising demand. In this competitive market, companies such as Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA) are successfully carving out a niche for themselves due to a unique strategic approach and business model.
Now legal for medical or recreational use in 29 states and the District of Columbia, marijuana continues to be an attractive industry for investors, with sales of roughly $6.7 billion in 2016, according to Arcview Research (http://cnw.fm/m7yXK). The industry is expected to go over $22 billion by 2021, according to the same report. Other reports are a bit more conservative, with New Frontier Data research estimating the medicinal and recreational marijuana market to reach $18.37 billion by 2021 and $24.07 by 2025 (http://cnw.fm/cG0Dc). The hemp industry is also growing fast, with analysts expecting to see it rise from a market size of $688 million this year to a little over $1.8 billion by 2020, according to the Hemp Business Journal (http://cnw.fm/8rE3R). A large portion of the sales from this year were from hemp-derived CBD, with the sector recording $130 million in sales and growing at an aggregated growth rate of 53 percent, per the report.
The exponential growth of the legal cannabis market and the hemp-based CBD industry enables Marijuana Company of America to fully develop its vertically integrated business model, which is built around the idea of bringing together a diverse portfolio of investments and joint ventures representing synergistic business segments of the market that are uniquely positioned to bring added value to shareholders. Designed to serve as an umbrella for a variety of companies that participate in the legal cannabis industry, Marijuana Company of America aims to provide investors with the opportunity to become a driving force of hemp and cannabis innovation, processing and cultivation, as well as distribution, with the end goal of maintaining customer loyalty and capturing a hefty market share by developing valuable and recognizable brands.
With a commitment to quality both in terms of the turn-key services it provides to the industry and the products brought to market, Marijuana Company of America also aims to establish itself as a successful network affiliate marketing program (http://cnw.fm/Z6kdU) via wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Inc. The subsidiary offers affiliates multiple opportunities to generate long-term income from sales and referrals, as well as the opportunity to build an affiliate organization to promote a range of quality CBD products, including hempSMART Brain and hempSMART Drops and additional products launching in Q4 2017. As part of its affiliate marketing program, hempSMART™ also offers support materials and training, giving affiliates access to high-quality products and the opportunity to enter large markets and develop a national customer base.
In addition to hempSMART™, Marijuana Company of America’s portfolio includes several companies involved in hemp cultivation and the development of optimal cultivation and processing facilities. The latest announcement by the company was a signed LOI to acquire 25% of Colorado-based hemp-derived CBD producer Space Cowboys, Inc. The agreement between Marijuana Company of America, Canadian Global Hemp Group (OTC: GBHPF) and Space Cowboys was announced in a press release on October 10 (http://cnw.fm/Ej0ny). Under the agreement, Marijuana Company of America and Global Hemp Group will invest $2.5 million in Space Cowboys to help expand its cultivation operations. In exchange, they will receive 25 percent equity in Space Cowboys, as well as access to a constant stream of high-quality CBD.
