Investing in Cannabis 101

American cannabis stocks continue to draw the interest of investors as recreational legalization becomes increasingly widespread at the state level. Celebrities are creating their own cannabis brands, nearly 20% of people in the U.S. report having tried CBD and the industry itself is expected to top $30 billion annually by 2025. It appears that this green business has gotten the green light from consumers and keen investors alike.

That said, despite the initial assumption that cannabis would prove a booming industry, reality has yet to deliver on many early investors’ hopes. If you’re considering investing in cannabis, it’s a wise idea to explore the reasons why individual cannabis stocks have proven slow burners on the market — and to look into alternative ways you can invest in the industry while minimizing your risk.
