March 23, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 23, 2020--

The “Cannabis and CBD: U.S. Retail Market Trends and Opportunities” report has been added to’s offering.

This report provides up-to-date insights on the quickly evolving cannabis landscape, with a focus on multi-state cannabis dispensary operators and food and beverage introductions.

Against a backdrop of market trends supporting continued growth, U.S. retail sales of cannabis and CBD products rose 24% in 2019. Even while the state-by-state regulatory landscape impedes activity, cannabis retail dispensaries are growing significantly by the month, fueling gains among multi-state operators with growing geographical footprints and increasingly sophisticated retail and product branding.
