Industry leaders, political figures, and medical and scientific experts from around the world have all gathered in Cape Town to discuss the business of cannabis.
CannaTech, the world's premier cannabis summit, has been taking place at the V&A Waterfront this week where several commercial deals have been facilitated.
The summit has focused on how to accelerate Africa’s large-scale cannabis-growing potential, explains Hayim Raclaw of Israel-Cannabis (iCAN).
Raclaw, the director of acceleration at iCAN, a cannabis investment platform, says Africa is the perfect place for a budding cannabis industry to grow.
This, he says is due to a combination of perfect climate conditions, the continent's cultivation skills and legislative shifts in several regions.
He says close to 500 people from 22 countries have attended the summit, many of them are from African nations.
