3 Marijuana ETFs With Potential to Harvest | InvestorPlace – Investorplace.com

The idea of marijuana exchange traded funds (ETFs) is undoubtedly intoxicating, no pun intended. However, just one dedicated marijuana ETF trades in the U.S. You read that right. The world’s largest ETF market — by a wide margin — only has a single dedicated marijuana ETF.

The lack of U.S.-listed marijuana ETFs belies the already well-documented opportunity set with cannabis stocks. For example, the U.S. Marijuana Index has more than tripled since the start of 2016. Home to 17 stocks with a total market capitalization of $6.27 billion, that index “tracks the leading cannabis stocks operating in the United States. Constituents must have a business strategy focused on the marijuana or hemp industry, and are required to meet our minimum trading criteria,” according to the issuer.

While the idea of marijuana ETFs is likely enticing to issuers, there are risks. Most notably, cannabis is still illegal at the federal level, which introduces a slew of concerns regarding federal banking regulations. Custodian banks are essential elements in the ETF ecosystem and holding marijuana stocks could put them in jeopardy with federal regulators.

So for the moment, investors probably should not expect new cannabis ETFs in the U.S. over the near-term. In the meantime, investors can use the following 3 funds for cannabis exposure.

Expense ratio: 0.75% per year, or $75 on $10,000 investment.

ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF (NYSEARCA:MJ) is the undisputed king of U.S.-listed marijuana. But as I noted earlier, this king presides over a small court.

MJ was converted to a cannabis ETF late last year, explaining how it avoided some of the aforementioned thorny regulatory issues associated with weed ETFs.

Home to 38 stocks, MJ has nearly $369 million in assets under management,

4-20 Momentum Signaling Next Move For Leafbuyer (LBUY)?

Friday was one of the most active days for attention on the MJ Industry and 4-20 certainly marked what could be a major milestone for the market with new legislation on the table.

There was some slight consolidation over the last few days but this is nothing new for those looking at LBUY. Back in December LBUY saw a similar trend before skyrocketing to highs of over $3 by January. Are new highs coming for LBUY?

The Politics of Marijuana

Marijuana has been considered to be quite taboo throughout time. With prohibition in the U.S. being in place since the early 1900s based on a large amount of propagandistic anti-cannabis campaigns. Since then, the world of cannabis has been on the fritz.

Lets Not Forget About Marijuana’s Positive Contributions To The World Of Medicine

Cannabis Science, Inc. (CBIS) Proud to Announce 4/20 Success! Opening of the First CBIS Cali Rx Location – Marijuana Stocks (press release) (blog)

“Friday’s 4/20 opening of the CBIS Cali RX location is a significant milestone for our Company,” stated Mr. Raymond C. Dabney, Cannabis Science’s President, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), and Co-founder. “This is a beautiful, state-of-the-art, retail facility and connects Cannabis Science directly with all patients and doctors.”

“It’s tough to be in two places at the same time, but I’m working on it! ‘Due to the 4/20 Industrial Hemp court case date in the Company’s lawsuit against San Juaquin County, CA, as well as the recent depositions related to this case, Mr. Dabney and Cannabis Science’s senior executive team did not attend the soft opening of the CBIS Cali RX location on Ventura Boulevard.’ It was quite fitting that our date in U.S. Federal Court fell on April 20th,” stated Mr. Dabney. “I believe we had a good day in court last Friday, and we look forward to successfully pleading our case in the months to come.”

“We’ll get some cool signage up, get some new promo packages together, and get this party started! ‘Mr. Dabney and his team will host an Educational Expo upon his return to Los Angeles in the coming week at the new CBIS Cali RX location on Ventura Boulevard to discuss the Company’s major initiatives, including Cannabis Science’s drug-development consortium, and iCannabinoid, the Company’s social media and educational interactive online platform. The Company will also discuss scholarship programs for educational opportunities available through Cannabis Science’s partners, including American States University, American Heritage University School of Law, and the Raymond C. Dabney University.’ This is going to be fun!” concluded Mr. Dabney.

“The opening of the CBIS Cali RX location is an important part of Cannabis Science’s growth strategy. The CBIS Cali RX location will showcase Cannabis Science and Cali RX brands of high-quality cannabinoid and cannabis-based

Maricann Group Inc. (MRRCF) Receives Health Canada Approval for Phase One of Canadian Expansion – Marijuana Stocks (press release) (blog)

Maricann Group Inc. (CSE:MARI)(75M.F)(MRRCF)(“Maricann” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that it has received all of the necessary approvals from Health Canada to commence cultivation in Phase One of the Company’s new, state-of-the-art grow facility in Langton, Ontario, Canada. This is Maricann’s third licence issued by Health Canada.

“The licensing of Phase One of our Canadian expansion is a major milestone for both our employees and shareholders. This facility could be built in the Arctic, or the equator and still replicate the exact same cannabis every time. Due to the control and automation platform, combined with a unique building envelope design from standard stock, pre-engineered steel and greenhouse components, our overall costs are reduced,” stated Ben Ward, CEO

The design of the facility is revolutionary, combining the best of indoor cultivation and greenhouse technology. We utilize natural sunlight in a completely controlled, sealed, and energy efficient cultivation environment. Our automated process allows us to reduce ongoing operational costs to create a meaningful cost advantage.

Ward continued: “Environment and genetics are the two most critical elements in the production of cannabis. Our new facility, combined with Rare Dankness Cannabis Cup award winning genetics, provides Maricann with the ability to supply a superior product to the market. We invested significantly in a new purpose-built facility, with an optimal work flow that complies with GMP production standards and Six Sigma operations. This will result in ongoing low cost production of a premium quality product. We plan to bring our experience and expertise with us globally in replication of this world leading facility, designed by our VP of Infrastructure, Jeff Ayotte.”

Elements of the expansion include:

  • Segmentation of cultivation rooms into 8,800 square feet, to create an optimal environment for each strain’s cultivation that can be individually controlled, mitigating risk in potential
