Introducing Horizons ETFs’ Suite of Marijuana ETFs

Access A New Frontier Investing In Marijuana Using ETFs

Why Invest In Marijuana?

On October 17, 2018, recreational marijuana was legalized in Canada, allowing Canadians to purchase marijuana for recreational use without a doctor’s prescription. With the legalization (or pending legalization) of both medical and recreational marijuana in certain states in the United States and nationally in countries such as Germany, the growth potential of marijuana cultivation and distribution is big business.

The Growth of the Marijuana Industry

The global cannabis industry could reach $194 billion by 20251.The legal cannabis market in North America is expected to reach a value of approximately USD $35 billion by 20232.

The Canadian Advantage

The legal recreational cannabis market in Canada is expected to be worth approximately $6.5 billion by 2020, and could top sales of spirits in Canada.3

Canada is a global leader in building the infrastructure and regulations for the medical marijuana market, through its Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”), with over 157 licenced companies.4

The U.S. Advantage

In 2016, the U.S. legal Marijuana market size was estimated at USD $7.06 billion and is now expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 24.9% from 2017 to 2025.5 Many of these U.S.-domiciled companies have opted for Canadian securities listings to take advantage of full capital markets support, since marijuana use is fully legal in Canada.
