Big Marijuana Stock Profits in Surprising Places

earnings

Legal marijuana is a smoking hot growth industry in the U.S., Canada, and beyond. The global cannabis market is projected to soar from $20.5 billion back in 2020 to $90.4 billion by 2026.Âą And these estimates are likely conservative, as the U.S. moves closer to wide-ranging federal legalization and European nations, including economic powerhouse Germany, prepare to do the same in 2022.

The best part about investing in legal marijuana right now is that despite all of the progress, there are ample opportunities to get in right near the ground floor given where we are in the legal lifecycle. Plus, many top pot stocks are trading near all-time lows heading into the new year, after they were beaten down in 2021, along with other former covid high-flyers and growth stocks.

This Entrepreneur Thinks CBD Is the Answer To Mom Stress

Amanda Goetz

Amanda Goetz is on a mission. Founder and CEO of the personal wellness and CBD brand, House of Wise, she’s a mom of three focused on shifting the public perception of CBD and cannabis use — especially when it comes to what it can do for women and moms.

“After realizing the potential of CBD in my own life, I made it my mission to source, develop and provide products to other women that were reliable, trustworthy, and high-quality. I’m focused on being a leader and advocate to break down the stigmas surrounding CBD as well as the stigmas women, and especially mothers, face in our society today,” she tells Romper.

Amripali Gan

OnlyFans' 38-year-old founder and CEO Tim Stokely unexpectedly announced Tuesday he's stepping down from the top job with immediate effect. The company's chief marketing and communications officer, Amrapali Gan, has taken over Stokely's role. Stokely said in an Instagram post that Gan has a "deep passion" for OnlyFans.

It is particularly well-known for hosting adult content.

Is Marijuana Powder A Game Changer For Edibles?

edibles

The most amazing aspect of this product is the fact that it gives the user the control to determine just how high they want to get.

Cannabis powder is not a new product; it has been around for more than five years. It’s only just getting its due recognition due to the new legislation here and there. Entrepreneurs along the West Coast have included powdered cannabis edibles in their stocks, and at the rate it’s been gobbled up, we could be in for a game-changer.

Many people seem to believe cannabis powder is simply cannabis flowers that have been ground into fine dust. Instead, cannabis oils are used.

What do you do when you feel the “Grim Reefer” revealing yourself to yourself? The first thing you should do is isolate yourself from whatever is going on in your immediate environment.
