Why Investors Need to Consider Urban Populations When Sizing Global Markets
March 6, 2016

Population distribution is an important factor in sizing global cannabis markets because residents of urban centers generally hold more favorable views of cannabis than rural populations. Additionally, it is easier to serve residents of densely populated urban centers than in rural areas where there are fewer potential customers. Australia, Israel and Uruguay  are the most urban centric of the selected countries. Comparatively, Jamaica has the lowest urban population at 55%, but the small size of the island nation, coupled with the high rates of home cultivation suggest that access marijuana is unlikely to be an issue for consumers who may want it.
