Cannabis investing is now more exciting than ever. The world just witnessed a huge deal being struck between Canadian giant Canopy Growth Corp. and a U.S.-based legalized hemp company – just another example of the big-money mergers that are taking place in this industry. What could possibly be next, and how are sophisticated investors capitalizing on this phenomenon?
There’s no better time than now to take a close look at this emerging global market, so Portfolio Wealth Global took the opportunity to speak with Lucas Birdsall, a market expert and insider with deep knowledge of the trends and moves being made in cannabis today.
A top corporate advisory consultant hailing from Vancouver, Lucas Birdsall is a proud alumnus of the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University, achieving concentrations in the Finance and Operations Management streams. Mr. Birdsall has worked with top firms in legalized cannabis as well as IT and fintech.
Portfolio Wealth Global inquired about Mr. Birdsall’s perspective on the mergers and growth potential of the multinational cannabis industry today. According to Lucas Birdsall, there are a number of emerging themes in the cannabis trade – one of which is mergers and acquisitions, which he believes we’ll continue to see more of as the industry expands.

Another major theme, according to Lucas Birdsall, is the widespread normalization and acceptance of cannabis in society and business ventures. For instance, we’re seeing big-name politicians sitting on cannabis company boards – people from all walks of life are waking up to the fact that cannabis is not only lucrative, but transformative for society as a whole.
But even with the flurry of recent activity in the cannabis space, there’s still plenty of room for further growth, according to Lucas Birdsall. Blue-chip companies that didn’t get early exposure to the lucrative cannabis products space are going to have to buy their way in; more big-money consolidation and capital infusion means more opportunities for investors to capitalize.

What investors need to know, however, is that the ground-floor opportunities aren’t in saturated, over-hyped markets. Instead, according to Lucas Birdsall, forward-thinking investors can look to Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, and other developing cannabis markets for the biggest gains going forward.
Mr. Birdsall’s best recommendation in this regard is a company called ICC International Cannabis Corp. (CSE:WRLD, OTC:WLDCF), which has the licenses, distribution networks, and connections needed to mine profits from world regions where the legalized cannabis industry is only in the beginning stages – much like America was in 2013.
ICC is looking to plant its flag in as many of these prime multinational cannabis jurisdictions as possible, according to Lucas Birdsall, with the objective of creating cultivation and distribution facilities – and of course, achieve consistent revenues and cash flows, thereby adding tremendous value for WRLD/WLDCF shareholders.
As Mr. Birdsall pointed out, ICC is the sole and/or dominant player in many of these regions in Europe, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific where cannabis is decriminalized and consumer demand is strong. As a fully vertically cannabis operator, ICC is able to penetrate the entire cannabis value chain – and as a first mover in many international markets, this company is poised to expand along with this fast-growing industry.
Lucas also revealed to us an exciting development: ICC has just appointed David Shpilt as their new CEO. Mr. Shpilt is a legendary entrepreneur in the cannabis industry who’s worked directly with numerous master growers at commercially licensed producers, assisting to improve cultivation methodologies, as well as standardizing cannabis cultivation to pharmaceutical standards.

As Lucas Birdsall explained to us, the addition of Mr. Shpilt will prove to be an invaluable asset to ICC, and will help move the company forward as it pursues further acquisitions, licenses, market share, and revenues.

And we absolutely agree with Mr. Birdsall that Europe today is like the U.S. was in 2013 when it comes to the legal cannabis industry: it’s in its infancy and poised for explosive growth.
