Working with the C* Word opens a gateway to one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Over the last 6 months, the global cannabis industry has grown more than it has done in the past 6 years. As medical cannabis is quickly becoming the most important healthcare development of the past 20 years, it is creating incredible opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs globally. In addition, the UK enacted its medical cannabis program on November 1st, and the domestic cannabis industry is therefore becoming a key focal point for local and international media.
