U.S. Medical Cannabis Market Continues to Grow
SARASOTA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As Neutra Corp. (OTCBB: NTRR), a growing provider of all-natural wellness solutions, works to market and develop new horticultural and delivery systems for medicinal cannabis, the market continues to grow in the U.S. This month, Oregon became the latest state to authorize medical marijuana (MMJ) dispensaries.
Gov. John Kitzhaber signed a bill earlier this month allowing retailers to reimburse growers and charge for their product, and provides for a registry for businesses providing such services. Oregon voters initially approved a statewide initiative in 1998 mandating state lawmakers to allow for physicians to authorize qualified patients to consume and grow cannabis.
Twenty states as well as the District of Columbia have now approved the use of medical marijuana, with more expected to follow. As part of an ambitious strategy to gain market share in a sector forecast to reach $6 billion over the next five years, NTRR has initiated development on a horticultural post-production system alongside partners Vertigo Technologies that could soon revolutionize the time and care needed to deliver medicinal cannabis to patients.
The company has also begun research and development activities on a new cutting-edge oral delivery system for nutraceuticals including MMJ.
By providing innovative nutraceutical products and services such as new MMJ breakthroughs, Neutra Corp. plans to follow in the footsteps of other successful public companies including Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTCBB: CBIS), Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTCBB: MJNA) and Terra Tech Corp. (OTCBB: TRTC), delivering technological advancements in the cultivation and processing of cannabis in approved markets.
