Is March the time to buy marijuana stocks?

Since the beginning of the year, we have seen quite a bullish trend sweep through the world of marijuana stocks. Many companies have seen their values double or even triple, which is all a result of the friendly investor space on cannabis. Projections are showing that in the coming few years, marijuana is expected to grow in the billions, which means that there is a lot more opportunity waiting out there.

One of the most common places to begin investing is the industry on pure-play cannabis or those who grow the physical plant. These companies seem to be at the top of the market and continue to illustrate why they are the forefront of marijuana investing.

Five marijuana stocks with huge growth potential : CGC, ACB, CRON, TLRY & MRMD

Weed, marijuana, pot, cannabis, loud, Mary Jane, sticky icky, green, chronic, tea… Whatever you call it, it is a growing market in the United States. Ten or fifteen years ago you would have been laughed out of a room if you brought up the idea of legalized marijuana in the U.S. In recent years though, the trend has definitely been in that direction. Medical marijuana has been around for years, but legalized recreational marijuana is fairly new. Ten states now have voted in favor of recreational marijuana, and our northern neighbor, Canada, legalized marijuana on the national level in 2018.

4 marijuana stocks with superior crop yields

The past six months have been an absolute whirlwind for the marijuana industry. In October, we witnessed the industry gain the legitimacy it's sought for so long after Canada became the first industrialized country in the world to legalize recreational cannabis. Then, just weeks later, the U.S. midterm elections increased the number of states to have given the green light to medical cannabis to 33. A month later, President Trump signed the Farm Bill into law, legalizing hemp and hemp-derived cannabidiol products. At seemingly every turn, the outlook for the cannabis industry has been improving.

4 CBD stocks to buy for mainstream marijuana profits

Traffic stats don't lie: among investment categories, few have the draw of legal marijuana. And within this broad descriptor, companies specializing in cannabidiol, or CBD, have generated significant buzz. But what exactly is this three-letter acronym, and how can CBD stocks boost your returns?

Let's start with basic definitions. Cannabidiol represents one of several cannabinoids, or chemical compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant. But unlike the most famous cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not lever any psychoactive effect. In other words, users can enjoy this compound's benefits without getting high.

Following the passage of the Cannabis Act in Canada this past June, and the official kickoff of recreational weed sales on Oct. 17, 2018, the cannabis industry is now viewed as a legitimate business model that's here to stay.
