Investors Should Be Paying Close Attention to This Industry

CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / April 22, 2019 / Investors should be paying close attention to the cannabis industry right now. Canada has already gone fully legal and the US does not appear to be far behind. Currently, recreational marijuana is now legal in 10 US states & medical marijuana is legal in 33 US States. Even CBD, the non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis, has gotten the green light to be legally sold across all 50 US states and big-box retail stores like Walgreens and CVS are beginning to carry CBD products. This positive momentum within the USA and Canada has investors asking, "What pot stocks should I be watching right now?"

Today we are highlighting: Canopy Growth Corporation (CGC) / (TSX:WEED.TO), Aphria Inc. (APHA), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACB), Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (LBUY).

Canopy Growth Corporation (CGC) (WEED.TO) (Market Cap: $16.233B) broke barriers in 2017 and 2018, and will likely continue into 2019. The original deal between the fortune 500 company, Constellation Brands and Canopy Growth set the framework for the cannabis industry to enter "The Real World." Constellation Brands, one of the largest alcohol producers in the world entered into and then expanded upon a multi-billion dollar deal with Canopy and now owns a significant stake in the company.

Canopy Growth Corporation (CGC) (WEED.TO) and Constellation Brands have signed a deal to revise some of their warrants in light of the latest plan for Canopy to acquire Acreage Holdings. "Today we announce a complex transaction with a simple objective. Our right to acquire Acreage secures our entrance strategy into the United States as soon as a federally-permissible pathway exists," stated Bruce Linton, the co-CEO of Canopy Group. As of this report, CGC stock is up by nearly 6%.
