Lets look into some of the well known stocks of Cannabis.cannabis

  1. Canopy : Canopy Growth Corporation(NYSE: CGC) which is also known as Weed in Canadian market(TSX: WEED) is one of the stocks which has multiplied the wealth of many investors in short term.  Both the US and Canadian market version of the stock generally shows a price range of $2 to $5 within a day and sometimes $10.

Some Cautious words:

Like most other faster money making ways there is a word of caution. The weed or pot or cannabis market is very immature as it just got legalized in Canada. Very few countries or states and provinces in any country have it legalized. There are lots of conditions about its usage and purchase. Imagine a pharmaceutical company working on a drug which suddenly gets approved – what will be the impact on the stock price. It is somewhat similar situation. It is used for medical purposes for years and now with legalization the business for producers will thrive. Suddenly these companies are getting orders around the world and there are lots of tie-ups and acquisitions in the air.

For a business to make quick money it is right time but do not follow the crowd. Make calculative decisions and use a small portion of your investment to make money – not risking big amounts. On a positive note some of these companies may become long term big players. Another important point to note is that many of these companies will not have past history of Financial ratios which most of the analysts and algorithms or robots use. So a calculative judgement is important while investing money in cannabis stocks. Do not leave the opportunity but carefully risk some percentage of investment to make quick bucks.
