Unregulated cannabis not as potent as advertised, study finds

cannabis bud

Unlicensed cannabis is not as strong as you may think it is. 

That's according to a recently published study by the New Brunswick Research and Productivity Council.

Researchers comparing samples of illicit and legal cannabis products found that the claims of potency for illicit products were significantly less accurate.  

The RPC's chief officer of science Diane Botelho said the study was taken on to find out whether there was any legitimacy to claims made about cannabis products on the illicit market being 'better'. 

"Our scientists have been curious for a number of years now as to whether or not illicit cannabis products were equivalent to legal cannabis products with respect to health and safety as well as potency claims," said Botelho.

Could This Smaller Cannabis Stock Overtake Aurora Cannabis in Revenue?

Stocks on cellphone

Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQ:ACB) is one of the top marijuana stocks in Canada. It has fallen behind both Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) and Canopy Growth (NASDAQ:CGC) in terms of revenue, but it's still a relatively big player in the pot market up north. However, with the company reporting yet another lackluster period this week with respect to revenue growth, it could fall further behind, especially as marijuana producer Hexo (NASDAQ:HEXO) has been trying to grow via acquisitions.

Investors should also pay attention to another company that could soon be on Aurora's heels as well: Village Farm International (NASDAQ:VFF).
