2017 has come and gone. We here at Royal Queen Seeds would like to wish you season’s greetings. And all the best for the year to come. Here are the “high”lights of 2017!


Reform has continued to blossom everywhere this year.

- Internationally, Uruguay and Canada lead the recreational movement. Next year, national recreational reform will kick in by summer in Canada. And that is expected to have a ripple effect globally.

- In the US, California leads the pack. The state had $2 billion in sales of medical marijuana this year. Next will be the rec market, set to launch right at the start of 2018. Ready, steady, go!

- On the medical front, Germany and Mexico led the seven countries that passed legalization laws this year. Germany kicked off the conversation in early January. Domestic cultivation will happen sometime between now and 2019.

- From a policy perspective, it is also clear that the entire conversation is moving forward too. A new World Health Organisation Report shows that CBD isn't addictive or dangerous. The World Anti-Doping Agency also issued a statement saying CBD is suitable for athletes. Look for major developments in this space over the next few years.
