CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / March 13, 2019 / The marijuana stock market has seen an impressive couple months thus far in 2019, despite the cannabis industry still very much in its infancy. Even though the marijuana industry is still relatively new, cannabis companies have managed to get their market capitalization well above the billion-mark. Having said that, a common mistake made when speaking about successful companies is solely focusing on large-cap companies. Especially in the cannabis sector, there is a considerable amount of smaller companies taking innovative approaches to create cannabis products, ultimately resulting in growing excitement from investors. Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC:LBUY), Tauriga Sciences Inc (TAUG), Cara Therapeutics Inc (CARA), and HEXO Corp (NYSE American: HEXO, TSX: HEXO) are 4 marijuana stocks getting a boost from today's headlines.
Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC:LBUY) is often referenced as the most comprehensive online resources for information related to cannabis, as well as how to procure products currently available on the market. Through the use of its website, Leafbuyer.com, the Company has become the authority on cannabis for millions of consumers on a daily basis.
Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC:LBUY) announced the official launch of the leading mobile application, Greenlight, in Colorado and Oklahoma. The news follows a November 8, 2018 press release announcing the Company's acquisition of Greenlight.

Following the announcement, Kurt Rossner, Chief Executive Officer of Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC:LBUY), said, "in this fast-paced industry, we need to stay ahead of technology and continuously improve our offerings to drive more value to our clients. Greenlight is one more platform we have that separates us from our competition, inherently making Leafbuyer a more attractive option to dispensary clients nationwide."
Tauriga Sciences Inc (TAUG), a company engaged in building its business through the development, distribution, and licensing of proprietary products, today announced that it has ramped up production of its Tauri-Gum™ inventory to support its ongoing commercial launch.
