Are cannabis stocks a safe bet for Canadians? | Life

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Last year, four of the biggest Canadian cannabis stocks, Canopy Growth Corp., Aurora Cannabis Inc., Aphria Inc., and MedReLeaf Corp. had investment return rates in the triple-digits; forward-thinking Canadians who’d invested early were euphoric, especially given that the market, for now, is almost entirely speculative.
  • Earlier that year, cannabis stocks across the board dropped 30-50% before recovering a roller-coaster ride that might leave even the most veteran stoners paranoid and nauseous.
  • Canada’s road to legalization has been rocky and regulations will play a big role in stock market success.
  • From the Medical Marijuana Access Regulations (MMAR), which allowed patients to grow their own personal stock, to the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), which requires patients to purchase from licensed distributors at an enormous mark-up, federal regulations will undoubtedly affect the industry.
  • Rielle Capler, a PhD Candidate at UBC and cannabis researcher believes that the success of the legal industry requires careful study of the decades-old illegal market.
