Will These Pot Stocks Make It Through 2020?

Edibles Are A Better Option Than Smoking Marijuana During Pandemic

The coronavirus should make us all think twice before smoking, whether it’s tobacco or weed. Luckily for everyone, edibles can be easily purchased or made at home.

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness, one that’s transmitted when in close contact with infected people. Now that most of us are spending our time in self-quarantine, how can we protect ourselves aside from constant and annoying hand-washing?

One thing most experts agree on is that smoking is not a good idea at the moment, even if what you’re smoking is marijuana. The better your lungs are, the more likely it is for you to prevent complications should you come in contact with COVID-19. This also applies to people who vape.

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.”
