Best Cannabis Stocks For Active Traders
Are you planning to buy marijuana stocks in 2023? One method cannabis investors are utilizing during the current slowdown in the cannabis sector is by trading cannabis penny stocks. To be clear, any stock that trades for less than $5 is called a penny stock. Despite the well-known high level of market volatility in the marijuana industry, short-term investors may still expect to make significant gains.
The marijuana industry has expanded quickly in recent years and is anticipated to do so in the future. Many people believe that marijuana has numerous medical and recreational uses and has the potential to develop into a very lucrative industry. Congress is currently delaying the federal cannabis reform and SAFE Banking laws, which are affecting the cannabis industry.
But with the marijuana market expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of at least 25% until 2030, many investors are looking for investment opportunities. As more states and entire countries decriminalize or legalize cannabis, commercial opportunities for both new and established companies are growing. Given President Biden’s announcement in October 2022 of marijuana changes that potentially signify steps toward the federal decriminalization of cannabis, this is very relevant.
One industry that will experience significant growth is the American cannabis market. Investors can profit from the market’s current momentum by taking advantage of the sector’s recovery. The top marijuana stocks under $2 to watch in March are listed below.
