The marijuana hype is over, and previously upbeat investors feel utterly disenchanted. There was never a month post-legalization of adult-use marijuana that the sector was not challenged.

These 2 marijuana stocks could eclipse Canopy Growth (TSX:WEED) very soon

Canopy Growth Corp  (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC) is going through some tough times. After reaching a peak closing price of $69.90 in April, the stock embarked on a major bear trend, which saw it fall to $52.87 on Monday.

The sell-off correlated with two developments: a May selloff that affected almost all markets worldwide, and a Q4 report that showed a loss of over $300 million. Given that Canopy kept falling after stocks rebounded in May, it’s likely that the Q4 loss was the main factor behind its tanking share price.

What are the key risks facing Canadian cannabis stocks?

Cannabis has been demonized for decades, labelled as a gateway drug that leads to harder drug abuse and associated with violence, crime and antisocial behaviour. In a surprise move, Canada, the only developed country to do so, legalized the recreational consumption of marijuana, becoming only the second country globally to do so after Uruguay. This sparked a rash of initial public offerings (IPOs) among cannabis cultivators as they sought to cash on what is believed to be a multi-billion global industry.

Should you bet on a rebound in weed stocks?

Cannabis stocks are down significantly in the past two months and investors are trying to decide if the pullback presents a good opportunity to buy marijuana stocks in their portfolios.

Growing pains

Every new industry goes through periods of volatility, and the rapid rise of the cannabis sector from penny-stock outliers to mainstream media darlings with billion dollar market caps is one for the record books.

The 4 must-know cannabis vape stocks

The marijuana industry is evolving before our eyes. What had once been a taboo industry that was dominated by the black market and dried cannabis flower will soon be no more.

Following the recreational legalization of cannabis in Canada last October, and the ongoing push to give the green light to medical and recreational weed at the state level, acceptance of marijuana into legal channels is growing.

The prospect of rapid sales growth and the impending launch of derivative pot products in Canada (e.g., edibles, infused beverages, vapes, topicals, and concentrates) sent anything cannabis related soaring.

Should cannabis investors switch over to CBD stocks?

It must surely be occurring to marijuana investors en masse that the projected demand estimated by Statistics Canada pre-legalization may now seem a little optimistic.

The next big thing will likely be ancillary products, such as vaping products, cannabis-infused drinks, and edibles.

However, there’s a chance that this market will take even longer to settle into profitability, let alone predictability.
