NEW YORK, January 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The 2016 election resulted in a big win for the legal cannabis industry, with several states voting in favor of legalizing cannabis for recreational use, including California, the largest Cannabis market in the U.S. In addition, the state of Colorado crossed the $1 billion mark in annual cannabis products sales. The ArcView Group has published an updated research report on January 3rd, according to which the legal cannabis sales in the U.S. last year reached $6.7 billion, a growth of 30 percent from 2015. Sales are projected to increase to $20.2 billion by the year 2021 representing a 25 percent compound annual growth rate. ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTC: CIIX), CV Sciences Inc.

Adam Bierman, Chief Executive Officer of cannabis investment firm MedMen Capital believes that the City of Angels will steal the spotlight from the Mile High City. Forbes has reported that according to Bierman, by some estimates, Los Angeles's medical marijuana market alone is already close to $1 billion, easily overshadowing Colorado's entire market. The city is expected to pass an ordinance in 2017 that will clear the path for a proper licensing program and open up the recreational market. Bierman said that capital is flowing into the area for local ventures as investors begin to smell money in the emerging market.
ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) is a financial information website for Chinese-speaking investors in both the U.S. and China.

ChineseCBDoil.com is expected to go live and online at the end of January 2017.
CEO of ChineseInvestors.com Warren Wang said, "We believe it is a wise move to have http://www.ChineseCBDoil.com located in Shanghai, China. China has a consumer base.

Mr. Wang further remarked, "Our cannabis 'Yelp' style mobile application has just completed its design of Version 1.0.
