Each month, we publish a newsletter discussing a trending topic within the cannabis industry and how it shapes Surna’s philosophy. To be one of the first to receive this information, be sure to sign up for our email list.

It’s been an exciting and busy year in the cannabis industry. Though no new states legalized cannabis in 2015, there was plenty of activity – Oregon started legal recreational sales in October, Hawaii finally legalized medical dispensaries in July (15 years after legalizing medical cannabis), and California passed a set of bills to regulate the medical cannabis industry (almost 20 years after legalizing medical cannabis), in addition to many other exciting events.

At Surna, during 2015, we attended or spoke at 16 conferences, published 26 blog posts (thus far), created 1 video tour – with more planned for 2016, and more than doubled readership of this newsletter since starting it in March. We saw the first sales of the Surna Reflector, the introduction of a few new products, including air sanitation and a gross revenue increase of more than 400%.

Next year is shaping up to be even more exciting for the cannabis industry as 3 states (Hawaii, Oregon and Alaska) are set to open the application process at the beginning of the year and a few others are set to begin implementing existing regulations, awarding licenses and opening dispensaries.

To top it all off, 2016 is a presidential-election year with full legalization initiatives on their way to the ballot in Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Nevada, and Canada’s new prime minister has vowed to make cannabis legalization a top priority.

Within Surna, 2016 should be a great year as well. We are looking forward to continuing to develop cannabis cultivation technology, including our Hybrid Building, and working to improve the efficiency in cultivation centers around the country (and Canada).

As the end of the year is always a hectic time, the next Surna newsletter will be in January. Thank you for spending some time with us this year. We can’t wait to see what next year brings.
