All through the 2010s, weed was having some fantastic luck. Many states and several nations authorized it for recreational use; handfuls of all, more belatedly permitted medicinal use. Evaluated deals across the planet reached $17 billion in 2019, a bounce of 38 percent was observed.

At that point came the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, and somehow astonishing, weed is on more of a roll than at any other time. In states like California, which assigned its dispensaries fundamental assistance, a developing heap of proof proposes cannabis deals have shot up since March 1, 2020, thanks to the quarantine. No big surprise: Much of the cannabis client base is stuck at home, restless and exhausted simultaneously. The individuals who need to go out to work are considerably progressively suffering from a burnout. And, which miraculous plant can help in diminishing such burdens. We all know the answer, Cannabis!

So how does the game happen for marijuana? What would be an ideal next step? No one knows, similarly, as we don't have the foggiest idea to what extent the COVID-19 emergency or its related lockdown orders will last. Estimates for the subsequent quarter, since that is a thing marijuana organizations do now, have all been placed in the shredder. In any case, here, through the perspective of Jay Matos, we predict a possible condition for the cannabis business in post-pandemic times.

Cannabis compliance expert and business consultant Jay Matos with a deep understanding of cannabis laws, rules, and regulations across the local, state, and federal level highlight the possible prospect of cannabis consumption in post-pandemic scenarios. Matos has dedicated the past six-and-a-half years to help reform Nevada's medical marijuana program. Matos helped develop the regulatory framework of SB 374, which established the state's medical marijuana laws and passed in 2013. Established in 2012, Jay Matos Consulting has helped several dispensaries acquire licenses and build their business plan in medicinal Cannabis.

A Possible Surge

The coronavirus isolate ends up having been the ideal rearing ground for new clients. They won't stop when they come out of lockdown; actually, they begin inclining towards it more than liquor as a noontime or post-work treat. Bars and eateries, as of now on the ropes, endure a lasting shot. Technically, getting high on the lunch break is now actually a thing.  

This bodes well. Liquor deals may have spiked toward the start of the lockdown; however, numerous consumers are probably going to find — maybe after one too many work-from-home aftereffects — that it is an inappropriate medication for this second. Drinking is a movement requiring gathering that advances far-reaching, active conduct, drink at home after a long time after night, and your companions are properly concerned.

THC, then again, is home grass here. It causes the most monotonous life moments to appear to be intriguing and momentous and helps you doze off better than Alcohol. It matches well with eating snacks, cleaning your home, binge-watching Netflix, and while doing anything you want to do. In fact, this is why cannabis consumption is on the rise due to its soothing impact on human minds. Amid Corona crises and its toll on our mental health, marijuana helps us cope with the extreme pressure.

A Glance from the Past

In any case, much relies upon states and nations that were thinking about or had recently dismissed legalization of weed. The high unemployment rates we're observing will leave millions searching for types of government-endorsed comfort; always remember that the U.S. began turning around its liquor prohibition at the start of the Great Depression. Governors, in the interim, will scramble to connect gaps in income tax and sales tax revenue.

Fortunately, " If all states legalized and taxed marijuana, states could collectively expect to raise between $5 billion and $18 billion per year," says Tax Foundation (which generally restricts more prominent tax assessment). At the end of the day, we may, before long, be experiencing a world that cannot bear the cost of not legalizing the weed consumption—mainly not as it turns into the potent leisure fun activity of the 2020s.

“There is just such a lack of understanding about marijuana's value," says Matos.
