CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2019 / Marijuana stocks have consistently managed to dominate headlines with news related to positive gains in the market, despite volatile conditions felt by other industries over the course of last year. In terms of the US cannabis markets, several states have put forth positive legislation in favor of legalizing cannabis, effectively demonstrating how legislative efforts can benefit the economic framework of this country on a state level. The increase of capital, in tandem with growing public approval, has resulted in the cannabis sector attracting more investors looking for potential opportunities. As we close out the month of January, Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC:LBUY), Aphria Inc (NYSE: APHA, TSX: APHA), Aurora Cannabis Inc (ACB), and InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc (IMLFF) are 4 pot stocks that are gaining tread on Thursday.

Aphria Inc (APHA) announced earlier this month that the Company had recently entered into an exclusive agreement with Toronto-based UNOapp to collaborate on the development of technology and analytics solutions for Canada's growing adult-use cannabis market. As part of the agreement, UNOapp has granted Aphria the first option to commercialize any platform or solution developed from this collaborative effort.
Oliver Centner, Founder of UNOapp, commented, "this is a great opportunity for UNOapp to apply its proven technology-driven solutions to the Cannabis industry. Helping brands connect, educate and engage consumers seamlessly through one platform in retail, is at the core of what we do. We're thrilled to be partnered with Aphria. Their team's expertise, innovative thinking, and global reach give us a tremendous opportunity to evolve our platform to meet the unique needs of the burgeoning adult-use market in Canada and scale quickly to other markets internationally."
Aurora Cannabis Inc (ACB) has dominated the headlines this month following the Company's announcement early last week that it had closed its previously announced offering of 5.5% convertible senior notes due 2024 for gross proceeds of US$345 million (including US$45 million pursuant to the exercise of the initial purchasers' over-allotment option).
Per the details of the announcement, Aurora plans to use the net proceeds from the offering to support its Canadiana and international expansion initiatives, as well as for future acquisitions and general corporate use.
Aurora CEO Terry Booth commented, "these convertible notes offer Aurora the flexibility and optionality to settle the entire principal amount of the notes in the future for cash, shares, or combination thereof."
InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc (IMLFF), a fully integrated, cannabinoid-based biopharmaceutical company that uses its proprietary platform to develop treatments for those with unmet medical needs, announced earlier this month that Dr. Sazzad Hossain, would assume a position as member of the Scientific Advisory Board and, contemporaneously, announced his retirement as Chief Scientific Officer.
Prior to his departure, Dr. Hossain said, "InMed's continued success in developing cannabinoids to treat serious diseases is vital to me. Unfortunately, given recent personal health concerns, I wish to modify my role to that of a scientific advisor. I look forward to continuing my involvement with the entire team at InMed."
