Investing $1,000 in HEXO, OrganiGram, and Aleafia 2 years ago is worth this much today

Over the next couple of years, there are few if any industries expected to rival the "green rush" in terms of sales growth potential. Following the legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada, as well as 33 U.S. states giving cannabis the OK from a medical standpoint, the sky is the limit for budding pot stocks.

Then again, the potential of the legal weed industry is no secret to Wall Street professionals or long-term investors. If you had the foresight (and luck) to invest in any of the "Big Three" marijuana stocks at the beginning of 2016 -- Canopy Growth, Aurora Cannabis, or Cronos Group -- you'd be up by somewhere between 2,000% and 7,000% today.

Pot shop cuts hours because it can't get enough cannabis

An Ottawa pot shop is being forced to significantly reduce its hours because it's consistently running out of cannabis and says the province won't allow it to increase its order.

The Hobo Recreational Cannabis Store on Bank Street, which was operating seven days a week for 14 hours a day, will now close early on Tuesdays and entirely on Wednesdays.

It will open again on Thursdays at 6 p.m. after its weekly delivery arrives.

"We've been running out of cannabis for a few weeks now," said Harrison Stoker, vice-president of brand and culture for the Donnelly Group, the store's parent company.

We would take twice as much in a heartbeat, absolutely.- Harrison Stoker

3 marijuana stocks with forward P/E ratios under 20

Chances are you'd struggle to find an industry creating more metaphorical and literal buzz right now than marijuana. After lurking in the shadows for decades, the cannabis industry has had the proverbial green carpet rolled out in Canada, where recreational weed is now legal, and in 33 U.S. states where medical cannabis has been legalized in some capacity. The sky looks to be the limit for the cannabis industry.

Unfortunately, the sky has also been the limit for the traditional fundamental metrics used to gauge the value of publicly listed companies. Just as shaking a pinball machine sends it into "tilt," a thorough review of the underlying fundamentals of most pot stocks would probably cause investors' brains to "tilt."

Two sides of the story about cannabis genetics

Cannabis genetics is something that’s been heavily worked and experimented on in the past three decades. It is very rare that we get to see something like herbal genetics being perfected in illegal greenhouses, and yet here we are.

The growers perfected their plants’ genetics by handpicking only the best, strongest and most potent phenotypes and crossed them with their peers. That is how we got extremely potent strains such as OG Kush and many others.

Keep cannabis away from kids, Montreal hospital urges after increase in intoxication cases

The Montreal Children's Hospital is reminding parents to keep their edibles locked up and away from kids following an increase in the number of cannabis intoxication cases.

Between 1990 and 2016, it was relatively rare for doctors at the hospital to treat children under the age of seven who had ingested cannabis — one case, on average, every three years.

But since 2016, when talk of the legalization of marijuana ramped up, nine children under the age of seven have been treated after consuming the drug.
