Cannabis leaf in the open

All about 420? Try 420 Investing!

Lately, there has been a lot of drive towards investing in cannabis. After the 2020 presidential election, with the establishment of a Democratic presidential administration and Congress, there were high hopes in the industry, evident by the increase in stock prices. Although there have been disappointments because of slow progress towards federal cannabis legalization, leading shares to fall rapidly. Therein, you have your opportunity to invest in cannabis stocks. Right now, you may not get much of a return. After all, in the eyes of the federal government, it’s still illegal, which means the cost of capital, compliance, and taxes are higher. However, if it becomes legal, the valuation of these companies will explode, making your investment more likely to be quite valuable. For right now, don’t expect a huge return from cannabis investments (or, any return until growth continues).

Whoa, investing in 420? Absolutely and here are some of the top picks.

GrowGeneration Corp.

In February 2022, you can buy GrowGeneration Corp. stock for $8.49 per share and, right now, expect to get about $0.31 back for each share. GrowGeneration Corp. was founded in Greenwood Village in Colorado and focuses on providing organic products.

In January 2022, GrowGeneration Corp. had 63 stores across the United States, from coast to coast.

Since there are so many partnerships that the company’s involved with, there is an opportunity for long-term growth. While the return may not be high, this company is growing and has the potential to become a major contender within the global industry, which means investors will have a great opportunity to earn long-term returns.

Village Farms International Inc. believes that small seedlings lead to big growth, a pun on its focus on greenhouse-grown vegetables and sustainability through growth innovation.

Essentially, Village Farms International Inc. is all about the environment and sustainability. As a result, it’s a great option for green investors, as well as those that want to get into the 420 market.

Like many of the companies on this list, right now, you won’t get any return for your investment in Village Farms International Inc. However, it just entered the cannabis market in 2017 and, as a result of global changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s kind of like it just started. That’s because many of the changes caused by the pandemic are here to stay and Village Farms International Inc. is capitalizing on these opportunities. That means that the company is likely to grow quickly and, as a result, is more likely to have a return on investment in the future.

Hydrofarm Holdings Group Inc.

The company was founded in 1977 and is headquartered in Pennsylvania.

Through the provision of materials needed for growth, this stock is a tremendous asset to the cannabis industry. Overall, the emphasis by Hydrofarm Holdings Group Inc. is growing together. 

Hydrofarm Holdings Group Inc. doesn’t deal directly in cannabis, but it’s a hot stock for the industry. That’s because there’s more to cannabis than just consuming the product. It’s got to be cultivated. That’s where Hydrofarm Holdings Group Inc. Therefore, it’s likely that this company will expand further into the industry to accommodate any special needs.

But, that’s how growing markets work. Remember when Apple wasn’t worth anything, then, suddenly, people were millionaires and billionaires? The same thing could happen here.
