The U.S. FDA approved the very first cannabis-derived drug, as well as the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp and hemp-based CBD. Even major retailers are jumping on board.

Better, Cowen analysts say U.S. cannabis sales could reach $80 billion in the next 11 years. Analysts at Piper Jaffray say the market could be worth as much as $50 billion a year in the U.S.
