Leveraging Analytics in the Emerging Cannabis Industry

Leveraging Analytics in the Emerging Cannabis Industry

Reading Time: 6 minutes

The introduction of laws in many states permitting the cultivation, distribution, and consumption of cannabis products has spurred a massive influx of new cannabis-related businesses, and with it a massive amount of raw data. With 36 states now legalizing cannabis for either recreational or medical use (or both) and a new, cannabis-friendly administration, that number is only going to continue to grow. According to a report by Grand View Research, the global market for marijuana is predicted to grow to an incredible $70.6 billion by 2028. People can no longer deny the legitimacy and potential of the emerging industry, but how do entrepreneurs and rising companies navigate the messy and complex world of cannabis?

The key, as with all large industries, is understanding and utilizing available data to enable fact-based decision making. For the first time in history, businesses have access to an incredible supply of raw data due to the sudden explosion of legal cannabis operations. With the high level of competition, low differentiation among products, lack of historical data, diverse and complex regulations, and heavy marketing expenses, it’s critical that organizations learn how to use data to facilitate operations and produce actionable insights. Businesses must adopt the mindset that data is integral to decision-making at every level of the supply chain.
