The cannabis industry is picking up speed across the continent.
Canada has now become the first G7 country to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide – and across the border, more U.S. states are also entering what could become a $95 billion market by 2026.
As the industry matures, product quality will become a strong differentiator between those competing for market share. But what makes for a top-notch cannabis product, and does organic farming play a role in this?
HOW QUALITY CANNABIS IS MADE
Today’s infographic from The Green Organic Dutchman explains what goes into making a high quality cannabis product, and why the industry could be gearing towards embracing organic farming.
The first major factor that affects quality is where it is grown.
For most of its 6,000-year history, cannabis was predominantly grown outdoors. In a more modern setting, however, indoor cultivation has increased in popularity.

Canada is becoming the second country in the world to legalize cannabis today, following in the footsteps of Uruguay who gave the drug the green light back in 2013. Supporters claim the move will help eliminate much of the black-market drug trade and help bring about new medicinal advances. The move is somewhat of a leap into the unknown, however, with the rules governing the use of legal cannabis different in Canada’s territories and provinces. There could be serious cross-border implications as well. Even though the U.S. has legalized the green stuff in nine states, it remains a crime at federal level.
The legal framework of legalization is also shrouded in uncertainty and confusion. For example, only purchases from official stores will be legal while sales of several ounces between friends could result in fines or jail time. That is also true when it comes to sales of the drug to the minors; an 18-year old selling a few ounces to a 17-year old could result in the former getting 14 years in prison. One certainty is that the Canadian cannabis industry is packed with potential. Even though it remains unclear on how much pot will be needed to meet the country’s demand, Canadians have been spending big on the stuff for years. According to Statistics Canada, people spend over $5 billion CAD on cannabis every year.
Expenditure has been rising steadily since the 1960s with dips in the early 1990s and between 2005 and 2010. The cost of cannabis has also fallen considerably in recent years with the price gram declining by more than 10 percent in the past two years. Spending is expected to increase even further after legalization and despite the unknowns involved in the experiment, investors will be eyeing the Canadian cannabis market intensively.

Medical cannabis is gaining ground the world over, having recently been legalized in numerous states in the United States. Even though it is described as one cure for many ailments, there are some subtle nuances that make it more like a multitude of cures.
Cannabis comes in two overarching varieties- sativa and indica. Under these two varieties are numerous strains, each of which produces different results to treat different ailments. Sativa produces a cerebral high that allows the user to have energy and mental clarity. Indica produces a calming and sedating body high, allowing for relaxation.
Different strains of sativa can be used to treat stress, pain, depression, and adhd. Hybrids of the two varieties can be used to treat stress, depression, pain, migraines, adhd, insomnia, lack of appetite, and headaches. Indica strains can be used to treat pain, stress, insomnia, lack of appetite, nausea, tension, and anxiety.

In 2012, voters in Colorado and Washington made history by voting to pass initiatives that made the recreational use and sale of marijuana legal. These were huge victories for marijuana legalization advocates in these states and across the country, but whether or not the rest of the 48 states will follow Colorado and Washington’s lead remains to be seen.

Many people are campaigning for marijuana legalization around the world. But from the legal point of view, what will that look like? Should people be allowed to smoke weed anywhere, or should there be certain restrictions? Can one grow weed at home? What falls under a criminal offence? Currently, Canada is faced with such questions. Their government has promised some sort of marijuana legalization, but it is still not clear what that will look like. With the purpose of contributing to the debate, this infographic compares marijuana legalization laws in three countries that can be used as a model: the USA, Netherlands and Portugal.
This analysis will, without a doubt, be interesting to non-Canadians as well, because it shows different approaches that these countries have to marijuana legalization. While some countries allow consuming a personal amount of this substance, others view it as an addiction issue. Again, growing weed at home is not without limitations. There are restrictions on the number of plants that can be grown and how they are looked after. All this shows that we are still far from a perfect legal model. Maybe Canada will lead in this process. In any case, when you read the following infographic, you will certainly look at the marijuana issue with different eyes.
