Canadian Cannabis Stocks And 2023 Advances For The Industry
Are you looking for the best ways to invest in marijuana stocks in 2023? In April, a bipartisan group of lawmakers reintroduced the SAFE Banking Act. This caused some momentum in the cannabis sector in Q2 2023. The Safe Banking Act is a piece of proposed legislation in the US that would let banks provide their services to cannabis-related companies without worrying about facing criminal charges. By enabling legal cannabis companies to use financial services, the Safe Banking Act’s approval in the US would greatly benefit the cannabis industry.
One area of the cannabis market with a reputation for significant volatility is Canadian cannabis stocks. After Uruguay, Canada legalized cannabis for recreational use in 2018, making it the second country in the world to do so. As a result, business owners and organizations now have more chances to enter the market and profit from the rising demand for goods associated with cannabis. When marijuana stocks peaked in 2021, Canadian marijuana stocks had a significant upside and momentum.
Making brief investments in cannabis penny stocks is one way to take advantage of the market’s upward trend. Any share of stock being sold for less than $5 is referred to as a penny stock. The well-known high level of daily and monthly price volatility of cannabis-related penny stocks may present opportunities. Cannabis investors willing to participate in these high-risk/high-reward transactions have benefited from the recent double-digit percentage returns on several equities. Let’s look at the top two Canadian marijuana stocks to add to your watchlist for May.
