What Can You Expect from Marijuana Stocks in April?

Marijuana stocks were on a rollercoaster ride in March. After struggling in 2019, the marijuana sector didn’t start 2020 on a good note either. The Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences ETF (TSE:HMMJ) tracks the North American cannabis industry. HMMJ fell by 18.8% in March. Overall, the month didn’t start off well for the cannabis sector even before the coronavirus pandemic hit. Surprisingly, while COVID-19 has impacted other sectors, it has helped the cannabis sector. The demand for cannabis increased and sales rose. Cannabis stocks’ performance also improved. Let’s take a look at how cannabis stocks performed in March.

Hemp vs Cotton: Which Fabric Is Better For The Environment?

They are both natural plant fibers. Yet, in this article, we will see that natural doesn’t always mean eco-friendly!

On one hand, we have cotton, the king of the fashion industry. But does being the most used fiber for clothing worldwide make it the best option?

Hemp, on the other hand, doesn’t know the same popularity. But again, does that lack of use make it a bad clothing alternative? By the way, if you still see hemp as rough, stiff fabric, let these hemp hats convince you of the opposite!

No, cannabis isn’t recession proof, analyst says

Cannabis investors will learn the hard way that weed isn’t recession proof, and pot stocks will continue to fall in 2020 despite a modest March rally, says one analyst.

After a COVID-19-related sales bump helped push cannabis stocks higher last month, a round of disappointing earnings from Canadian players cut into those gains this week.

But Jerome Hass, portfolio manager at Lightwater Partners, Ltd., says the sector is still in bubble territory and shareholders should be bracing for more pain this year.

“The sector has dropped 80 per cent since last April, and it’s literally going to go down another 80 per cent this year,” Hass told Mugglehead from his Toronto home office. “I think this latest rally is delusional.”

Cannabis sales are booming. Will it last?

The products that have been flying off the shelves during the COVID-19 pandemic are, more or less, what you might expect. The dearth of toilet paper has been well-documented. Canned goods are the focus of most grocery store trips. So too are cleaning supplies. 

But cannabis — something that was illegal less than two years ago, and remains federally illegal in the US — has become one of North America’s most sought after items.

Buyer beware! Product fraud is alive and well in the cannabis industry

It’s been pretty clear over the last year that not everyone has been in the cannabis business to build a thriving new cash crop industry. The stories of startups making claims about growth and sales, enticing investors, then bailing with millions in ill-gotten gains, have become part of the early history of this industry. Business fraud seems almost endemic right now.

Earlier issues of allegedly synthetic cannabinoid products being sold at truck stops, which were actually a green leafy substance sprayed with a chemical that caused agitation and hallucinations, were really the first instances of product fraud.
