The Constantly Changing Cannabis Industry with Sanjay Tolia at Bengal Capital

Sanjay Tolia is the Founder and Managing Director of Bengal Capital, a private equity firm in the emerging cannabis industry.

“My journey came about in a roundabout way. It came about personally learning and investing in cannabis for years and being open to the large opportunity.

It began when I discovered how big the industry is on an economic level and the societal changes that will benefit the health and wellness industry.

Creating the transition for the Cannabis market to become legalized was the opportunity that called us to focus all our efforts from the world of finance into the world of cannabis.

I started in derivatives, considered esoteric back in the day, and saw an opportunity and saw the same opportunity in cannabis.

There is consensus that the cannabis market is growing fast, but the big question is how do you play in cannabis? And specifically how does an investor play in the cannabis space?”
