A Bright Ending To The Week For Cannabis Stocks After It Sees Highs And Lows From California Legalization And U.S Federal Regulation

Cannabis Stocks

As the first week in 2018 comes to close, it seems the major Cannabis stocks aren’t doing as well as anticipated. Marijuana stocks hit a valiant stride towards the end Q4 of last year, as California announced that it would be legalizing recreational marijuana on the first day of the New Year. The cannabis industry took a big hit yesterday, however, as the U.S Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, announced that he would be retracting the Obama-era Cole Memo, which resulted in a major stock selloff. The Cole memo gives power to each individual state for its decision on if it wants to legalize marijuana or not, and the companies do not have to fear federal prosecution for trafficking.

Let’s got into further detail as to how some of the cannabis stocks did this week.

Portland, Oregon based Golden Leaf, was a top trader on the CSE, with 4223 trades according to Investors Hub. Back on Tuesday of this week, the company announced that it closed in its acquisition of Medical Marijuana Group Consulting Ltd, which shot its stock up 26% on Wednesday. Despite, the low the following day from the Attorney General announcement, Golden Leaf rebounded and closed the week up 4%.

The Takeaway

Despite a rather rocky week for cannabis stocks, the top seven just listed closed the week in the green. The legalization of recreational marijuana in California will continue to drive demand up as the state of California is the largest state by population in the United States. Thus, I predict cannabis stocks to remain strong in the early parts of the new year. It seems that the Canadian cannabis stocks have been mostly unaffected by the new legislation down south and will continue to rise as it country prepares for national legalization, mid-year.
