December is a New Month for Marijuana Stocks

The marijuana stock market has definitely seen better days than those of the past few months. At that time, many companies have seen their values drop down quite substantially. This is not to say that some pot stocks have not witnessed growth in that time. Many of the most unknown companies in the industry have been able to escape the high levels of volatility. These mid and small-cap pot stocks have a much easier time putting through innovation due to the lack of a major bureaucracy that comes with size.

Canadian pharmacy giant Shoppers Drug Mart has expanded its online medical cannabis platform to Canada's East Coast.

Cannabis stocks fall for third straight day as market digests last of a weak batch of quarterly earnings

Cannabis stocks fell for a third straight day Monday, weighed down by the industry’s continued weak fundamentals, with companies still posting losses as they struggle to generate revenue.

The market is digesting the final third-quarter numbers from Canadian and U.S. players, and sentiment is being hurt by weaker-than-expected results, according to Greg McLeish, analyst at Mackie Research Capital Corp.

“What we’ve seen in Canada in particular is the disastrous retail rollout that is stopping licensed producers putting product into the retail channel,” he said. “That’s hurting net results and creating net oversupply in the marketplace that’s a concern to many investors.”

Canadian pot producers going full bore on vaping despite health risks, competition

Hundreds of new vaping devices are set to hit the Canadian market as early as next month, a sign that emerging health concerns, taxes, and even a provincial ban isn't enough to deter what some Canadian cannabis producers are hoping will be a big money maker. 

Health Canada told BNN Bloomberg that it has received close to 50 applications from licensed cannabis processors who have requested regulatory authority to sell the new classes of pot products. According to the regulator, those applications cover a total of 747 different cartridge-based vaping systems that industry players are hoping to sell when next-generation cannabis product sales begin on Dec. 16.
