Israel has been at the forefront of the world’s burgeoning cannabis industry, since the discovery of the THC molecule by Professor Mechoulam in Israel back in 1964. Since those early days, the cannabis industry has bloomed, paving the way for scientists, researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs alike to stake their claim in what many have called the “Green Rush.” Internationally the cannabis industry is worth around $20bn (£15.5bn) and is forecast to reach $100bn by 2020.
