As of January 2021, Mexico became another country to legalize medical cannabis use. It joins Switzerland, Canada, Peru and many other countries who have already legalized medical cannabis. As the number of countries increase so does the need for reliable translations within the cannabis industry. 


The processing, importing and exporting of cannabis will need reliable translators who are familiar with the industry and its specific terminology. The vocabulary of the cannabis world alone can make it appear daunting. The glossary of words span not only different strains and plant types but also the effects on the body. Particularly with medical uses, understanding how medical and cannabis terminology overlaps and works together will provide the most accurate translations.


 While this may seem like it follows the pattern of any emerging business, the reality is that the cannabis industry is growing at a rapid rate. In the United States, alone, the industry is estimated to have a net worth of 4 billion dollars, which by 2027 is expected to grow to 16 billion. Worldwide cross-country business deals will require international translation services to provide balance and perspective. As people receive their medical prescriptions they will also need to be able to have those documents available in a variety of languages to support the global citizen. 


From a legal perspective more and more law and legal teams are also expanding into cannabis law as well. The laws are strict when it comes to cannabis legislature and it is essential that all parties have the right understanding. Now that Mexico has legalized medical cannabis use, cross border translations, interpretation and transcreation services between the USA and Mexico markets will become a niche sector. Our tailored localization services are one of the ways that we are able to connect smaller markets with the larger sectors, and vice versa.
