The cannabis industry remains one of the most talked about and debated sectors in Canada, the United States and internationally. As cannabis businesses continue to scale from the initial industry boom, they are also contending with financial stressors compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. In Canada, there have been recent periods of noteworthy retail gains, followed by peaks and valleys aligned with provincial responses to the pandemic. In the U.S., several states have demonstrated impressive and consistent cannabis sales, with others well-positioned to open their cannabis markets. As the U.S. federal election looms, how might the outcome impact this sector?
