The Africa Cannabis industry has exploded in recent years, led by Lesotho, which was the first country to introduce a legal cannabis industry. Other Africa countries such as Zimbabwe, South Africa, Malawi, Zambia, Ghana, and Uganda have taken steps to set up legal cannabis markets. However, the global cannabis industry has experienced strategic, operational, and capital challenges, causing ripple effects felt throughout the continent. The webinar will focus on the African journey to date, and how, in such uncertain times, the continent can still unlock the health, industrial, and developmental potential of the plant.
