Cannabis Stocks To Add to Your List In February
Are you trying to find the best marijuana stock plays for 2023? To the astonishment of many investors, the stock market has risen at the start of 2023, and cannabis stocks are seeking to ride the wave. One part of the cannabis sector that is developing is the marijuana penny stock market. Any stock that trades for less than $5 is referred to as a penny stock for the benefit of those who are unsure. These marijuana stocks offer short-term investors high risk/reward potential due to their well-known extreme market volatility.
One sector that suffered large losses in 2022 was the marijuana ancillary stock market. Companies that support the cannabis sector but don’t handle the actual plant are known as cannabis auxiliary businesses. The cannabis sector is often supported by many firms. Businesses that provide lighting and cannabis-growing tools can benefit the cannabis sector. Let’s take a look at two of the top ancillary cannabis stocks rising this month as we approach mid-January.
