U.S. Firms Target Investment in Israeli Cannabis R&D

TEL AVIV — Already a pioneer in high-tech and cutting-edge agriculture, Israel is starting to attract American companies looking to bring medical marijuana know-how to a booming market back home.

Since 2014, U.S. firms have invested about $50 million (34.9 million pounds) in licensing Israeli medical marijuana patents, cannabis agro-tech startups and firms developing delivery devices such as inhalers, said Saul Kaye, CEO of iCAN, a private cannabis research hub.

"I expect it to grow to $100 million in the coming year," Kaye said at iCAN's CannaTech conference in Tel Aviv this month, one of the largest gatherings of medical marijuana experts.

Scientists say strict rules, some set by the Drug Enforcement Administration, limit cannabis studies in the United States, where the legal marijuana market is valued at $5.7 billion and expected to grow to $23 billion by 2020.

"In the United States it's easier to study heroin than marijuana," said U.S. psychiatrist Suzanne Sisley, who has researched the effects of cannabis as a treatment for American military veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Lessons from a Pot Investment Summit

It wasn't so many years ago that the words "cannabis gathering" only meant a joint being passed around the room and some sturdy philosophizing about life, the universe, and the bounties of the magic leaf. The picture could not have been more removed from that at the Cannabis Private Investment Summit organized by Kahner Global in New York City a couple of weeks ago. This was a room full of professional suits. On the one side, there were private family offices and high net worth investors potentially wanting to latch on to the exploding legal cannabis industry. On the other side, individuals with established cannabis-related companies pitching their products or services, informing and educating everyone about the opportunities in the space.

Talking Weed Business with America's First Cannabis-Focused Startup Accelerator

In the two years since Colorado began selling marijuana for recreational use, it has become the epicenter of a booming industry, one that will gross over $1 billion in sales this year. That number has been predicted to grow nationally to the point where it's larger than the organic food industry as vast swaths of the United States, as well as Canada, gear up for seemingly inevitable legalization.

With opportunity skyrocketing, Colorado has found itself in the midst of a modern-day "green rush." Entrepreneurs—many from out of town, transplants from corporate America or Silicon Valley—are touching down with ideas to innovate in the cannabis industry and make a fortune on the crop.

The Next Internet? Marijuana Delivered as Easy as Pizza

HelloMD is at the forefront of a new trend in Silicon Valley: the cannabis tech start-up. As marijuana laws are being loosened across the country, entrepreneurs and investors are creating new businesses to cash in on what they see as an emerging bonanza. Like start-ups in other industries, these firms are trying to use technology to bring speed and efficiency to what has long been a face-to-face, pen-and-paper market. In the process, they are also trying to alter mainstream perceptions of the marijuana industry, shedding the ganja and Rasta imagery to cultivate a wider audience.

“What we see is moms, dads, professionals, old people, everyone wanting access to cannabis,” said Mark Hadfield, the founder of HelloMD. “The old type of experience — go to a crummy dispensary, wait in line — was not going to appeal to the market that we were after, which is everyday Americans, a market that, by the way, is much larger than the old market of — I don’t want to call them stoners, but let’s say, ‘recreationally minded young people.’”
