Neil here.

As angel investors, we get front-row seats to witness the rise of some of the largest and most lucrative industries the world has ever seen.

I’ve personally witnessed plenty of paradigm shifts in my own career, like the rise of ecommerce, the takeover of artificial intelligence, the transformation of the fintech industry, and so many more.

But this year, there’s a red-hot industry exploding in value unlike ever before… and as always, angel investors get first dibs.

I’m talking about cannabis… and more specifically, cannabis tech.

This year, millions of investor dollars are piling into this corner of the industry. In the third quarter alone, for example, VCs poured around $57 million into cannabis tech startups.

But what is cannabis tech? Well, it could be just about anything. The cool thing about cannabis tech is that it intersects with a bunch of other massive industries.

Some, like Blackbird, provide marketing tools for cannabis retailers. Others, like Dutchie, have built e-commerce platforms for dispensaries. There’s even a crowdfunding site, called CannFundr, specifically designed for cannabis-related startups looking for funding.

(And over at Angels & Entrepreneurs, we recently featured a company whose software app is helping cannabis business owners easily sell and deliver their products in North America.)

Cannabis tech is one part of a larger cannabis industry that’s picked up serious steam this year.

In fact, cannabis is one of very few industries that wasn’t affected too negatively by the COVID-19 pandemic. With millions of people stuck at home, companies across the country are seeing unprecedented demand for their products.

Marijuana Business Daily projects that retail sales of both medical and recreational cannabis will hit $15 billion by year’s end. That’s a 40% increase from last year’s numbers.

By just 2024, yearly sales numbers could hit $37 billion, as cannabis-use becomes more widespread across the country.

It’s also estimated that by 2024, cannabis businesses could pump around $130 billion into the American economy every single year… and numbers like these have piqued the interest of some of our country’s top decisionmakers.

This week, the Senate approved a bill that would expand marijuana and CBD research in the United States.

The House of Representatives passed a similar bill last week.

And just two weeks ago, the House passed a bill that decriminalized marijuana at a federal level. Whether or not this bill passes through the Senate, this vote represents a major opportunity for the cannabis industry moving forward.

Cannabis is already expected to be a $73 billion by 2027, with the number of cannabis-related brands jumping over 15X (from 166 to 2,650) between 2014 and 2018.

Thirty-four states have legalized marijuana (at least medically), and 67% of the population supports legalizing it further.

All of this to say, we’re likely about to see some incredible winners enter the cannabis space… and now is the time to take advantage of it.

Now, if you’ve been following me this week, you probably remember me talking about a brand-new cannabis startup that’s getting ready to launch very soon.

It’s led by Bruce Linton (the “Godfather of Cannabis”), and he thinks it could be worth $100 billion within the next five years.

(If that happens, it’ll be one of the first cannabis companies to hit that mark.)

I have full faith that Bruce can do it. He’s already one of the world’s most successful cannabis entrepreneurs, having launched Canopy Growth Corp. just seven years ago.

Canopy grew by over 75,000% in six years and turned at least 200 everyday people into millionaires when they invested.

His next venture, Gage Cannabis Co., could be even bigger. By the time he plans on taking this company public within the next four months, it could be worth over $1 billion already.

The numbers don’t lie here. If all goes to plan, this could be one of the most lucrative return opportunities cannabis investors could ever see.

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes straight from my friends at Cannabis Venture Syndicate.

They’re sharing all the details you need in a free-to-attend meeting right now, and I suggest you get all the details today.

Have a great rest of your weekend, and I’ll be back soon with another update.

Until next time,
