According to the Grand View Research report, the size of the cannabis market is expected to rise to $ 11 billion in 2025. Major cannabis producers are also announced in the US, Canada, China, India, Japan, Brazil, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. As Aksaray, we want to take part in the efficient land of our country in this market.
Hemp, which is an industrial plant, used in hemp, medicine, paper, fuel and fabric production, is also used in the automotive sector. It is an important alternative to petroleum and petrochemical products. Hemp, rich in amino acids that affect the functioning of the human body, is rich in volatile fatty acids called Gamma Linolenic acid, which is also rich in hemp seeds. It supports the balanced functioning of hormones in the body.
Since it will be used for industrial purposes, hemp will produce a new production gate for both our country's economy and our citizens. Aksaray, which has always been with the State until today, will be next in this production.
Representatives of the industry in our city Aksaray Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Aksaray Commodity Exchange Market in Aksaray wants to be the Production Center for hemp as we want to be known by all the public to accelerate our work, "the statement said.
