The Canadian cannabis industry has already evolved from a primarily medical market, to an adult use market, and will continue to evolve due to the more recent deregulation of edibles, extracts, and topicals. To survive and thrive in the ever-evolving market. Cannabis producers responsible for forecasting demand and planning for its optimal fulfillment must move quickly to mature their process, upgrade their talent, and adopt modern supply chain planning technologies that provide advanced analytics techniques such as artificial intelligence and machine learning in scalable cloud based solutions, such as Vanguard Predictive Planning™.
