What restraints the growth of the global cannabis seeds market?

"Rise in marijuana black market challenges the market growth"

The marijuana black market remains significant, as evidenced by a recent audit conducted by the United Cannabis Business Association (UCBA). The audit revealed that 3,757 marijuana stores are actively dispensing marijuana, while only 873 of them hold valid state licenses. This data indicates that there are roughly three times more illicit retailers and dispensaries compared to legal ones. Despite the legalization of recreational marijuana, the black market maintains a dominant presence, posing a considerable challenge to the legal marijuana industry. This challenge is particularly evident in sourcing high-quality seeds from legitimate suppliers, as the prevalence of the black market discourages growers from utilizing authentic sources.
