In both the United States and Canada, the cannabis sector has taken on the role of one of the fastest growing industries. Two years ago, the medical cannabis market was valued at $4.7 billion and it is now forecasted to increase to $13.3 billion by the year 2020.
For investors, the cannabis industry is extremely attractive, even though it has experienced some volatility this month. Moving into 2018, a number of investors were saying that the cannabis market was going to take the new year by storm. This is just one of the many reasons we’ve been keeping an eye on cannabis stocks throughout January.
Earlier this week, I reported on 4 Canadian cannabis stocks that were either increasing or decreasing on the market: Golden Leaf Holdings, Global Hemp Group, Nutritional High International, and Cannabix Technology. Today, because we already know the market can change in a matter of days, we’re going to do a follow up to see how these stocks are doing today, Friday, January 26.
