The Impact That Illicit Cannabis Growers Have Had On The Legal Cannabis Industry Cannot Be Overstated!
On October 17, 2018 cannabis was officially legalized in Canada. Along with legalization, Canadians were suddenly presented with a lot of information and knowledge about the cannabis plant, as well as with legal access to various cannabis products. What is less known by Canadians, however, is the fact that most of the knowledge we have about the cannabis plant and the best quality cannabis products ever produced have all come from illicit growers, who have been quietly perfecting cannabis production for decades - the level of talent in this market is nothing short of incredible.
Despite cannabis being a natural plant, the production of high-quality cannabis requires immense knowledge and talent. Illicit growers are responsible for the production of thousands of strains with varying in levels of THC, CBD and other cannabinoids.
While cannabis legalization is leading to a boom in scientific research and more understanding about the many amazing benefits of cannabis, the impact that illicit cultivation experts have had on the development of the industry cannot be overstated.
Not only have these strains allowed consumers to reap the health benefits of cannabis, putting them in control of their health, it has also encouraged scientists to study the range of benefits, leading to a better understanding of which strains help with different conditions. While cannabis legalization is leading to a boom in scientific research and more understanding about the many amazing benefits of cannabis, the impact that illicit cultivation experts have had on the development of the industry cannot be overstated.
So why is there still an illicit cannabis market despite cannabis legalization? Unfortunately, many growers are reluctant to make the transition. When faced with the idea of having to navigate government regulations and take on a different kind of risk, most have chosen to avoid legalizing their practice. Others want to legalize their practices but are faced with challenges at the municipal government level by politicians who have yet to understand the benefits of craft cultivation in their communities.
