In this video, I will be showing you how to buy marijuana stocks step by step. This includes buying Canadian marijuana stocks through the OTC markets. Investing in marijuana stocks is a little more complicated as many trade on the OTC markets, but it is not impossible! This video will help you buy your first marijuana stock.


There is a new trend emerging.

This trend is the emergence and growth of the marijuana industry.

For investors comfortable with higher risk investments, this might be something you want to be a part of. It is important to keep in mind that this is not an “all in” type of investment. But if you are looking for a higher risk and higher potential reward investment, light exposure to the marijuana industry might be exactly what you are looking for.

The North American Marijuana Index tracks the leading cannabis stocks operating in the United States and Canada. This index climbed 86.5% in 2017 alone. This “growing” industry (pun intended) has a lot of potential.

I’m not telling you that you are going to get rich by investing in a marijuana stock. But what I am telling you is that this industry is poised for growth.

In the United States, individual States are allowed to make their own decisions. Currently, 30 States have laws legalizing marijuana use in some form. However, cannabis is still a Schedule 1 Drug on a Federal level. This causes a lot of complications for marijuana dispensaries in the United States. For example, no access to banking for their business. On top of that, these companies cannot be listed as public companies as they are engaging in an activity that is still illegal on a Federal level. There is no feasible way to invest in these companies as a result.

In Canada, however, the legal climate is more favorable. Canadians can legally access and grow cannabis for medical purposes under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR). In April of 2017, the government of Canada introduced bill C-45 which will create the Cannabis Control Act (CCA). The CCA will legalize and regulate cannabis use for adults and is expected to be enacted by July of 2018.

Since these Canadian companies are engaging in an activity that is legal, many of them have gone public on Canadian exchanges. You can easily invest in these companies through OTC markets. However, not all of these companies are what I would consider to be “investment worthy.”

This growing industry is in its’ infancy, and early adopters can reap the rewards. The potential growth for this industry cannot be questioned. While this is exciting news for investors, it is important to keep in mind that there are a few potential bumps in the road.

Cannabis Stocks Soar

[youtube id=”olSwTKq5t-c” align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”yes” maxwidth=”800″]

Canadian pot stocks start 2018 with a bang amid California legalization

THC BioMed surged 70% intraday and CannaRoyalty jumped 27%, pushing the BI Canada Cannabis Competitive Peers Index up 13% to a record

Long line ups to buy marijuana in California and a new ETF sent Canadian pot stocks roaring into the new year.

THC BioMed International Ltd. surged 70 per cent intraday and CannaRoyalty Corp. jumped 27 per cent at 2:38 p.m. in Toronto on Tuesday, pushing the BI Canada Cannabis Competitive Peers Index up 13 per cent to a record, extending a run that’s seen it almost triple since November.

While few Canadian companies have direct exposure to the U.S. pot market — and may run afoul of the country’s main stock exchange operator if they do so — brisk buying stateside might be a sign of things to come when Canada legalizes the drug by July, Beacon Securities Ltd. analyst Vahan Ajamian said
Marijuana Stocks could explode in 2018

Welcome to our website! We are the most trusted source when it comes to marijuana news as well as marijuana stocks. We are here to help investors keep up to date with the newest market trends in the penny stock ,cannabis and pot stocks sector.

Over the last five years, marijuana stocks have seen enormous growth. Every year more legislation is being passed giving people access to both medical and recreational use of Marijuana and Cannabis related products. The medical marijuana industry is expected to reach over 55 billion by 2025 some experts are estimating that California will add an addition 5 billion to its economy because of their decision to legalize the recreational use of the plant. By 2020 it is estimated that the weed industry will create an additional 350,000 jobs.

As I am sure you can imagine smart investors are looking to take advantage of the future explosion in the industry. Our focus is to stay ahead of the game and be able to provide our subscribers the most current and relevant Cannabis news as well as top-notch marijuana stocks alerts!

Some of the most frequently asked questions we get are:
Marijuana Stocks That Could Outpace The Market In 2018

•Private and public funds are throwing tens of million of dollars in anticipation of several industry catalysts that will be seen in 2018.

•New ETFs are coming online that are heavily investing in top companies in the industry.

•Aurora’s million pre-IPO investment into The Green Organic Dutchman could signal a changing tide in the industry to spark new investment opportunities.

I’ve written a lot about this industry lately especially because there could be some very big catalysts this year, including Canada’s recreational legalization. Obviously, in anticipation of this, many traders and investors looking to get a piece of the marijuana stock market are searching for an answer to the question: Which cannabis stocks should I buy now?
The U.S. legal marijuana industry is booming

But continued federal prohibition hasn’t stopped the marijuana industry from growing like a very profitable weed.

Despite what could be considered an unfriendly administration in Washington D.C., nine states and the District of Columbia now allow for recreational marijuana use and 30 allow for medical use. And more states are lining up to join the legalization wave. Pot has become big business in the U.S.

The emerging industry took in nearly billion in sales in 2017, according to Tom Adams, managing director of BDS Analytics, which tracks the cannabis industry. Sales are equivalent to the entire snack bar industry, or to annual revenue from Pampers diapers.

That was before California opened its massive retail market in January. The addition of the Golden State is huge for the industry and Adams estimates that national marijuana sales will rise to billion in 2018, and to billion in 2021.

Let’s talk about 4 Marijuana stocks that you should watch if you’re interested in the marijuana market in 2018.

First, I’ll start with a brief overview on what’s happening in the U.S and Canadian Marijuana markets and the laws surrounding cannabis.

 United States Marijuana Market.

– Cannabis is illegal under federal law for any purpose.
– However most states allow some form of cannabis use.
– 9 states allow recreational use of marijuana.
– Medical Marijuana is allowed in 29 states.
– 17 other states allow limited THC content.

The Market:

– California adopted recreational marijuana in January 2018. As California is the 3rd largest area in the U.S, it should dramatically increase the United States Marijuana market.
– 60% of Americans want to legalize Marijuana according to a gallop poll. I also read a fox news poll that had the exact same figures.

 Canadian Marijuana Market.

– Cannabis is currently legal for medicinal purposes.
– Cannabis is set to be legalized for all recreational purposes around early August.

Ok and below are my 4 marijuana stocks to watch in 2018…

1) Canopy Growth Corporation, Ticker Symbol = WEED.

Country: Canada
Market Cap: 5.701 billion
Price: .66
EPS: .06

Canopy growth is Canada’s largest marijuana company at the moment. They own a bunch of subsidiary companies and they obviously have the potential to benefit from Canada’s change in marijuana laws.

2) Aurora Cannabis, Ticker Symbol = ACB.
Country: Canada
Market Cap: .252 billion
Price: .72
EPS: 0.02

Aurora Cannabis is Canada’s second largest marijuana company strongly competing with Canopy Growth. I was really impressed with their last 2 quarters figures, as they managed to generate some really good earnings at great margins.

3) AbbVie Inc, Ticker Symbol = ABBV
Country: United States
Market Cap: 187.238
Price: 8.01
EPS: .30

Not a full-on Marijuana company but is strongly exposed to the industry with their cannabis based drug marinol.

4) Aphria Inc, Ticker Symbol = APH.
Country: Canada
Market Cap: 2.529 billion
Price: .45
EPS: .18

Medical Marijuana company selling their products through retail and wholesale networks. All their products are 100% greenhouse grown. They’ve been strongly looking at buying out an overseas marijuana company called Nuuvera.

And those are my 4 marijuana stocks to watch in 2018. I hope you found this information helpful! If you did leave the video a like, always appreciated!
