HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / April 25, 2019 / The cannabis boom is one of the most explosive.
More U.S. states have approved its use. Corporate America is just beginning to invest in it. Congress is pushing forward with new legislation. President Trump signed the Farm Bill into law. Cannabis M&A is picking up momentum. Even the global community has been quick to embrace medicinal cannabis.
We've even seen sales estimates soar. Arcview Research and BDS Analytics forecast 38% global growth in 2019 to $16.9 billion, for example.
As the story just begins to unfold, some of the top beneficiaries include Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc. (CSE:LDS)(OTCQX:LDSYF),Cresco Labs Inc. (CSE:CL)(OTC:CRLBF), and Crop Infrastructure Corp. (CSE:CROP)(OTC:CRXPF).
Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc. (LDS)(LDSYF) just announced the City of Adelanto reduced its cannabis tax down to 1% just last night. In fact, they voted to reduce the tax on Transportation, Distribution, Manufacturing, and Testing Lab cannabis businesses from 5% down to 1%. The city also reduced the cultivation tax from $5 per month per square foot to 5$ per year per square foot. They reduced dispensaries tax from 5% down to 3%. This comes in line with California voting to reduce the cannabis cultivation tax statewide. The reduction in city taxes will be a huge positive for cannabis businesses operating in Adelanto.

Crop Infrastructure Corp.'s (CROP)(CRXPF) Humboldt Holdings tenant Hempire just acquired a 25% interest in a licensed distribution company with onsite non-volatile commercial cannabis manufacturing in California, with a right to acquire the license interest should federal law change in favor of cannabis-THC.
The manufacturer will carry the cost of processing cannabis flower, cannabis trim and biomass, getting 40% of the resulting oil sales and CROP and its tenant 60%.
