 Several Canada-based marijuana growers could be impacted by a build-up of un-sellable “sub-par quality” cannabis, as well as a slower rollout of retail sales, one of Wall Street’s top marijuana analysts said Monday.

One reason marijuana quality can be poor is high level of moisture content. That’s why we’re highlighting THC Therapeutics, Inc. (THCT). The company’s dHydronator can reduce moisture content of cannabis to 10% in only 10-14 hours. Companies with products like THCT could help solve the industry’s quality problem.

Today we are highlighting: THC Therapeutics, Inc. (THCT), Beleave Inc. (BLEVF), NutraLife Biosciences, Inc. (NLBS), Nutritional High International Inc. (SPLIF), Grown Rogue International Inc. (NVSIF), Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON), Aurora Cannabis (NYSE: ACB), and Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY).
