• Nielsen yesterday announced that it is working with Headset, described as “the leading data & analytics service provider for the legal cannabis industry,” to form “a U.S.-specific strategic alliance to deliver a read into the U.S. legal cannabis market for consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies. This move comes as Nielsen steadily develops a full suite of cannabis measurement capabilities, inclusive of strategic partnerships and beyond, to help CPG companies monitor the evolution of the legal cannabis space, and the potential impact of legal cannabis sales to better mitigate threats and identify future opportunities.”
