“As the cannabis sector attracts more institutional investors and professional traders, having options available on THCX is an important step in building the fund's position as the go-to capital markets tool for cannabis exposure," Matt Markiewicz, Managing Director at Innovation Shares, told Benzinga. "We are extremely encouraged thus far by the trading volumes in THCX and having options list this soon after the launch of the fund signals to us that investor reception of this pure-play cannabis ETF has been very positive."
