The Cannabis Sector Off To A Good Start In March
Marijuana stocks have begun March with gains in the market. After reaching new highs during February the cannabis sector lost significant value the last two weeks of the month. One sector that gained the most so far in 2021 is the Canadian cannabis stocks. In general, this part of the cannabis market has been seeing gains due to investors believing that U.S. cannabis reform will open the American marijuana industry to Canadian companies.
Although this could actually take some time to implement many Canadian cannabis companies are already establishing some form of entry into the market. Some companies are positioning themselves to take advantage of the massive growth the cannabis industry could experience in the next few years.
At the present time, analysts at Arcview Market Research are predicting global cannabis sales could grow to $47 billion by 2025. For comparison 2019 sales of legal cannabis grew by 46% from 2018 to $14.8 billion. And in 2020 global cannabis sales are estimated at $21.3 billion which shows a substantial growth pattern. Because the cannabis industry seems to be growing rapidly many different types of investors are getting in on the action. In reality whatever your trading style is the cannabis sector has been delivering gains for investors.
The Cannabis Industries Global Expansion
In the U.S. regardless of federal cannabis reform, the expansion of the cannabis market is happening on a state-by-state basis. Especially in states like Arizona which recently launched adult-use cannabis sales, markets could grow quickly. In fact, some analysts predict sales in Arizona could double in 2021. At the same time, Canadian marijuana companies are also reporting revenue increases and heightened cannabis demand.
Presently many more cannabis dispensaries have been allowed to open due to a change in how Canada issues its retail licenses in the country. There are many different circumstances that are driving the cannabis market higher, and this could be seen in the current market value for top marijuana stocks.
One important thing to keep in mind is that pot stocks are known for market volatility. As pot stock prices are rising so is the possibility of more extreme price fluctuations. In general, investors should always do their research on a cannabis company before investing. All things considered, we can move forward and research some cannabis stocks that could hold future value. For the purpose of finding pot stocks with upward potential let’s look at 2 marijuana stocks the first week of March.
