The Importance of National Cannabis Brands

In reviewing what themes our readers click through most in our newsletter, anything related to cannabis is always a big hit. Interest in cannabis investing peaked last year, and now is the time when everyone appears fearful so you’re supposed to be greedy.

Investing in the Ancillary Cannabis Sector

We often use the terms “retail” and “institutional” to describe two types of investors. Generally speaking, a retail investor is anyone who invests on their own behalf. In other words, it’s your average Joe with a brokerage account. If said person’s net worth exceeds a certain threshold, they’re considered to be “accredited.” While accredited shouldn’t be […]

Cannabis Research to Make Marijuana Cannabinoids Cheaper

We recently ventured deep into Alaska’s Matanuska-Susitna Valley, home to legendary strains like Alaskan Thunderfuck, to learn more about the legal and illegal weed industry in the Last Frontier state. The bottom line: The kind bud is very unkind to your wallet, with an eighth of an ounce (about 3.5 grams) setting you back anywhere […]

Canada’s “Cannabis Securities Exchange”

The Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) is an alternative stock exchange in Canada that “began operations in 2003 to provide a modern and efficient alternative for companies looking to access the Canadian public capital markets.” It’s also become a haven for cannabis stocks lately.

Is Marijuana Legal in Alaska? It Sure Is.

If you managed to finance your college years by selling sacks of chronic to everyone in your dorm, you would have learned something about branding.

That’s because they bought those strains from growers […]

Cannabis Startups Taking in Sizable Funding Rounds

The cannabis industry is moving so fast these days, we hardly have any time to partake ourselves because we’re too busy trying to keep track of all of the IPOs and mega investments into these newly minted billion-dollar corporations like Aurora Cannabis (ACB) and Aphria (APHA).

Elixinol Stock vs. Charlotte’s Web Stock

This year we’ve taken a small break from looking at marijuana stocks and trained our focus on the recent legalization of hemp in the United States and the popularity of cannabidiol or CBD products for applications like reducing anxiety or facilitating sleep. We talked about how hemp food relates to CBD, and pointed out A Good CBD […]

How Hemp Food Fits Into the CBD Industry

Here’s some food for thought: One of the longest running wars in U.S. history appears to be nearly over. More than 200,000 people have been killed on foreign soil, while more than eight million have been jailed. Some reports say we spend upwards of $47 billion per year in this never-ending conflict. We’re talking, of […]

A Good CBD Stock for Cannabidiol Investors

It’s been a smidgen over three years ago since we penned our first article on investing in marijuana stocks, primarily meant to warn investors about cannabis stock scams and point them in the right direction when it comes to investing in marijuana stocks. In short, don’t bet the proverbial farm on an investment theme that […]

It’s Legal to Grow Hemp in the USA. What That Means.

Just last month, while both sides of America continued to spew vitriol at each other about every topic under the sun they could find to disagree about, something interesting happened that didn’t quite make the covers of most newspapers. The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 became law on December 20, 2018 and removed hemp (defined as cannabis with […]
