Best Cannabis Stocks For 3rd Week Of April
In April 2023, which marijuana stocks should you buy? Long-term investments may be more difficult in 2023 due to the extreme stock market volatility. Investors frequently employ short-term trading as a strategy to generate money in these difficult situations. The cannabis market’s growth in 2022 was inconsistent. While many established areas experienced a fall in sales, which halted or even reversed growth there, other new markets saw significant growth.
One way to capitalize on the growing cannabis industry is by investing in ancillary cannabis stocks. Cannabis companies that don’t work with the plant directly are referred to as ancillary cannabis enterprises because they offer goods and services to the sector. These companies provide various services, such as cultivation technology, labeling, packaging, software, financial and legal services, marketing, and branding.
Some of the market’s most volatile penny stocks are the largest cannabis companies. Cannabis investors ready to participate in these high-risk/high-reward transactions have benefited from some of these stocks’ recent double-digit percentage returns.
Taking advantage of the lower price points, many seasoned traders are currently opening positions in some of the top penny marijuana stocks. In mid-April, look at two of the best marijuana penny stocks on your list.

According to Greenlane, net sales dropped by 17.4% to $137.1 million in FY 2022 from $166.1 million in FY 2021. The decline from the prior year was primarily caused by a decline in the Consumer Goods segment of $62.0 million, or 56.3%, which was partially offset by an increase in the Industrial segment of $33.0 million, or 59.0%, as a result of net sales from our merger with KushCo, which have been accounted for in our results of operations since August 31, 2021, the completion date of the merger.
In addition, gross profit dropped from $33.9 million to $24.9 million, or 18.2% of net sales, in 2021 to $24.9 million in 2022. The decreased revenue is the cause of the lower gross profits.
