One of the primary concerns for investors researching the cannabis industry is “whether or not they want to touch the plant,” according to Gary Allen, chief operating officer for New Frontier Data.

“Some investors are nervous about the illegality nationally of the cannabis industry,” so they tend to stay away from investment opportunities that involve the actual sale of the plant, Allen said.

“Cannabis businesses still don’t have access to financial services. It remains a very cash-intensive business,” Kagia said.
