The CBD oil market is expected to witness an astounding CAGR of 38.90% from 2021 until 2029, climbing from $9.86 billion to $136.64 billion. There are several reasons behind the projected growth such a growing number of CBD-infused skincare products, increased use of THC and CBD in pain management and treatment, rising sales in both retail stores and online, expanding research, and increasing demand for ingestible products. Governments around the world have also begun opening up more doors for CBD, with a recent Health Canada report suggesting legal framework to broaden retail CBD sales across the country. These factors create a favorable market for cannabis companies like Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ:FLGC), Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX:OGI) (NASDAQ:OGI), Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON) (TSX:CRON), Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX:WEED) (NASDAQ:CGC), and Village Farms International, Inc.

On August 15, Flora Growth announced its financial and operating results from the first six month of 2022.

​​“In the first half of 2022, Flora delivered on its promise to double revenue compared to the second half of 2021, and we expect to maintain that trajectory to deliver our full year guidance as a result of continued growth in our House of Brands, the launch of several new brands in the United States, and the commencement of sales in our Commercial Wholesale and Life Sciences business,” said Luis Merchan, Chairman and CEO of Flora Growth. “We started 2022 with the integration of both Vessel and JustCBD, and despite macro headwinds in the global markets as well as global cannabis regulations, we are extremely pleased with our growth year-to-date. We are also seeing positive movement in our Life Sciences division with progress on the approval of our clinical trials in the United Kingdom and the acquisition of Masaya, a science-backed, high-potency CBD brand.”

On August 2, Flora Growth announced a joint venture agreement with the largest indigenous tribe in Colombia, Pharma Indigena Misak Manasr Sas, to develop agricultural best practices, production, export, and marketing of cannabis and cannabis-containing products.

According to the agreement, Flora will give Manasr regulatory guidance, business and technical support for product development and distribution, promotion of goods to be marketed under the Flora brand portfolio, and cannabis derivatives when necessary to finish product manufacture. Manasr will also collaborate closely with Flora to create cannabis-related medications and products as well as move up the authorizations and approvals required for Colombian cannabis exports.

The agreement's initial period is three years, but a long-term, mutually beneficial partnership is what the parties hope to establish.

Flora’s Chairman and CEO Luis Merchan said: “We are honored to be given opportunity to work hand-in-hand with the Misak people. Through this partnership, we will collaborate with the tribe on the processing and distribution of their Colombian-grown cannabis while offering Manasr a powerful platform for product distribution. In return, Flora will be able to leverage the tribe’s unique regulatory positioning to expedite exports and increase global market penetration of Colombian cannabis goods.
