The cannabis industry continues to grow rapidly across the United States, and all eyes are on the industry’s potential for investors. Today, investment interest comes not just from people looking to invest in public company stocks but also from individuals, groups, and entities that want to invest capital into cannabis businesses and licenses themselves. In mid-2021, we’re close to reaching the tipping point where half of the states across the country will legalize adult-use cannabis, so it’s not surprising that investment opportunities are a hot topic. Three of the top ways people and companies are investing in the industry today are through acquisitions, capital funding, and stocks. There are a variety of factors that analysts use to determine the value of a cannabis license, not the least of which is the potential market size, particularly in states where adult-use cannabis is legal. Beyond the usual criteria used to value a business, applying a value to a specific cannabis license is as unique as the cannabis industry. For example, intellectual property, including patents and trademarks, can significantly boost the value of a license as can real estate, location and security, and more.
