Will These Marijuana Stocks Continue To Go Up In The Market?
(Canada, Cannabis, Facilities, Grower, Growers, IIPR, Innovative Industrial Properties, Investments, Leases, Production, Products, Stocks, Vertically Integrated, VFF, Village Farms, Village Farms International, Cultivation) As of midday on April 2nd, marijuana stocks have so far had quite a rally. Top companies in the industry such as Tilray have shot up by as much as 12% during the day, before climbing back to a respectable 2% gain. Many of the deductions being made about the cannabis industry have been on a short term basis. This is because it is extremely difficult to tell where the market will be in the next few months, let alone 2 weeks from now. [Read More] Can These Ancillary Pot Stocks Keep Up With the Rest? The coronavirus has caused quite a stir amongst world financial markets, with pot stocks being hit quite heavily as well. But, with high fluctuations in prices happening on a daily basis, it seems as though there is some opportunity to be had in the cannabis industry. Those who stand to benefit the most are the ones who are watching the market with a very close eye. Because prices are shifting so rapidly, it can be difficult for those who trade in the long term timeframe, to see consistent...

Illinois Stores Sold Nearly $36 Million Worth Of Recreational Marijuana In March, Despite Coronavirus
(Cannabis, Facilities, Grower, Illinois, Massachusetts, Medical Marijuana, Products, Recreational, Regulations, United States, Washington, Dispensaries, Cultivation) Even amid the coronavirus pandemic, Illinois marijuana shops sold almost $36 million in cannabis products in March, according to a report from the state Department of Financial and Professional Regulation released on Thursday. More than 812,000 adult-use marijuana products were sold in the 31-day period. While the majority of those sales ($27 million) came from in-state buyers, out-of-state visitors accounted for about $8.8 million. By comparison, Illinois sold about $35 million worth of cannabis in February and nearly $40 million during its first month of sales in January. “Three straight months of consistent adult use cannabis sales show there is—and will continue to be—strong support and demand from consumers,” Toi Hutchinson, the state’s cannabis czar, said in a press release. The notice also talks about marijuana policies during the COVID-19 outbreak , which has shuttered non-essential businesses across Illinois and the country. Gov. J. B. Pritzker (D) signed an order deeming...

EcoGen Offers Buyback Program for Farmers Growing the Company’s Hemp Seed
(CBD, CBG, CBN, Extraction, Genetics, Grower, Growing, Hemp, Production, THC, Security) EcoGen made headlines last year with its sale of 20 million feminized hemp seeds at the NOCO Hemp Expo in Denver. It was a sign not only of EcoGen’s ambitions in the space (the sale netted the company $11 million), but of the rising interest among American farmers eager to get into the newly legal industry. “When you’re buying genetics, it’s really a trust buy,” Derek Du Chesne, EcoGen’s former chief growth officer, told Hemp Grower last fall. “It’s really a reputation buy. A lot of the farmers, especially this year, don’t know if you have a quality product [or if] two weeks later, [you’ll be] bankrupt. That’s really scary for farmers because it’s the most important decision they’re going to make all season.”And here we are: Back at it in April 2020 with another hemp season ahead of us.

2 Marijuana Stocks To Watch: Is Investing Long Term The Best Option?
(California, Canada, Cannabis, Cresco Labs, CRLBF, Grower, Growers, Investing, Investments, Investors, OGRMF, OrganiGram Inc, Stocks, United States, Dispensaries, Cultivation) The short term in the cannabis industry is arguably a very difficult time frame for investors. In the past three weeks, we have seen prices shoot down by more than 40% for some of the largest marijuana stocks in the industry. This, however, should not dissuade investors as it appears to be the short term result of the coronavirus. One of the key things to note about investing in cannabis is that the market is subject to see extreme growth in the next few years. Some estimates have shown that the cannabis market could reach as high as $40-70 billion within the next decade. [Read More] Marijuana Stocks To Watch: What’s Up With This Canadian Company?

(Canada, Cannabis, Florida, Grower, Growing, Investing, Investment, Investments, Investors, OGRMF, OrganiGram Inc, Products, Research, Stocks, TCNNF, Trulieve Cannabis, United States, Dispensaries) Investment safety is something that is hard to come by in the current state of the cannabis industry . With the coronavirus taking its toll on all world stock markets, it seems as though now is a difficult time to be an investor. But, this does not mean that the potential of pot stocks is less than before. Rather, we have seen some of the most intriguing marijuana stocks , shoot down to bare bones prices.

Cookies Crush
(Branding, California, Canada, Cannabis, Clothing, Education, Florida, Genetics, Grower, Growing, Jamaica, Law, Magazines, Maryland, Media, Michigan, Production, Regulations, Social Media, Strains, United States, Dispensaries) Nothing cannabis-related in the last 10 years found its way into our hearts, blunts and closets quite like Cookies. Even in the earliest days of transition from the medical space to the adult-use marketplace, Cookies was the most well-branded company in the cannabis industry. Today, in a world where PR people are desperate to create the kind of movement Berner’s business savvy and Jigga’s genetics have ignited, nothing else really comes close in the connoisseur space. Every step in the process of Cookies’ rise had its own wild amount of hype. In the late 2000s, the Girl Scout Cookies strain , called Cookies for short, became the most sought-after new strain in the world. Then, as the second decade of the century kicked off, Cookies became the must-have cannabis clothing brand , moving from social media to storefronts. Today, Cookies as a legal marijuana company is using its branding savvy to take the multi-pronged business even further into the future. From its humble beginning as a...

Doctor Sues the DEA Over a “Secret Law" Blocking Cannabis Research
(Arizona, Cannabis, Facilities, Grower, Growers, Growing, Law, Manufacture, Medical Marijuana, Mississippi, Research, Texas, United States, Cultivation) Attorneys filed suit last week against the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) over an alleged “secret law” that has stalled legitimate medical marijuana research in the US for the past three years. The lawsuit, dated March 25, came from Yetter Coleman, LLP , a Texas-based law firm that represents the Scottsdale Research Institute (SRI). Based in Arizona, SRI is led by Dr. Sue Sisley, a licensed physician who has been investigating medical marijuana as a treatment for cancer and PTSD. Last year, she filed suit against the DEA after the agency failed to review her application for a third-party marijuana growing license under the Obama-era Growers Program. According to the complaint, under the Trump administration, the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) issued its own interpretation of the UN Single Convention treaty and the US Controlled Substances Act that required the DEA to draft new rules for the Growers Program. The proposed...

Learn To Marijuana Like a Pro While You’re on Virus Lockdown
(Beverage, Cannabis, Education, Grower, Growing, Science, THC Farmaceuticals, Inc, THC, Cultivation) If you are reading this, chances are you are hunkered down somewhere, like the rest of America, just wondering when or if civil society will rise above this gnarly virus and get back to normal. But after taking in just 30 seconds of the daily press conferences held by the White House, it is plain to see there isn’t much hope that day is coming anytime soon. Although President Donald Trump claims there isn’t a need for a national lockdown, and he’s even mentioned that he might let the country ditch all of this social distancing stuff to keep economies from tanking, many states have still instituted “stay at home” orders to keep the population at home. It means that millions of people, just like you, are hanging around the house, bored out of their skulls. At first, it was sort of like an extended vacation, but now that you’ve cleaned all of your bongs, built a couple of new ones, and possibly even engineered a new cannabis strain called “Corona-B-Gone,” there isn’t much else to do...

Kentucky Hemp Company Argues COVID-19 Voids CBD Contract Third Wave Farms is arguing its agreement with Pure Valley Solutions should be terminated because of an uncontrollable event: the coronavirus pandemic.
(CBD, Grower, Hemp, Hemp Farming, Kentucky, Oregon, Processing, United States) Third Wave Farms is arguing its agreement with Pure Valley Solutions should be terminated because of an uncontrollable event: the coronavirus pandemic. Reports Hemp Grower. In a lawsuit over breach of contract, a Kentucky hemp farming company is arguing that its agreement with an Oregon hemp processing company should be terminated because of the novel coronavirus . Third Wave Farms, headquartered in Mount Vernon, Ky., signed a contract with Canby, Ore.-based Pure Valley Solutions in May 2019 to act as a broker for Pure Valley’s winterized cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The contract required Third Wave to sell up to 5,000 liters of it, according to the lawsuit Third Wave Farms, LLC v. Pure Valley Solutions, LLC. In the contract, Third Wave also said it was still working to raise the $2 million it needed to fulfill its agreement. That contract quickly crumbled on both sides. According to the lawsuit, Pure Valley never had the capacity to make 5,000 liters of CBD oil, and the oil it did make...

California: REINING IN CANNABIS TAX SCOFFLAWS
(Bar, California, Cannabis, Food, Grower, Growers, Products, Regulations, United States, Cultivation) Melinda Burns writes for “edhat” Santa Barbara (CA) Some cannabis operators in Santa Barbara County still don’t pay taxes, but there are signs that the county is closing in on them. Of 106 licensed cannabis growers and processors in county unincorporated areas, 15 failed to report their gross revenues during the most recent quarter, from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, according to a recent update for the county Board of Supervisors. That’s down from 22 tax scofflaws in the previous quarter. The county has put growers on notice that it will withdraw its “letter of authorization” for cannabis state business licenses if they fail to pay county taxes, said Assistant County Executive Officer Barney Melekian. “The word went out that we were paying attention to that,” he said, adding that one grower was forced to surrender his state license and shut down last month; two others promptly paid up, and a fourth has been summoned to a county administrative hearing. With 1,164 active state licenses for...

No-Till’s Next Battleground
(California, Cannabis, Fabric, Grower, Growers, Growing, Israel, Organic, Production, Strains, United States, Videos, Soil, Cultivation) Enclosed within a small garage in Walnut Creek, California, rows of cannabis plants appear to be sleeping in the darkness. Joseph Snow uses a small, green-hued light to show me the grow setup inside. The plants have barely entered their first blushes of flowering, but the room is positively perfumed with uplifting fresh botanical bursts of cannabis. When Snow pulls off the fan leaves from some of the strains — Mirage, Gelato, GoTime — to view the leaves outside in better light, he encourages me to inspect the vibrant green hues and differencing jagged edges and leaf shapes. The base of each sugary fan leaf is already coated in resin and it’s wafting off fresh terps. While modest in scale, this cannabis consultant’s grow has one thing about it that makes it very unique. Snow is cultivating indoor cannabis with a method of growing you’re far more likely to associate with an outdoor grow: no-till farming. Under the name Snowtill , he’s growing indoor cannabis in the same soil, year after...

The No-Till Revolution
(California, Cannabis, CBD, Fertilizer, Food, Genetics, Grower, Growing, Israel, Michigan, Recreational, Strains, United States, Recreational Cannabis, Soil) Josh Khankhanian walks barefoot through his Mendocino cannabis farm, pulling up pointed dark green leaves of comfrey and dropping them back on the soil. It’s the first day of October, which is an active time at any outdoor cannabis farm, but Khankhanian exudes an air of lucid calm as he decides which plants should be harvested today at Moon Gazer Farms . Khankhanian’s walk takes him through tangled rows of beautiful cannabis in full flower, nestled around other plants, flowers and herbs. Comfrey, Jerusalem artichokes, bergamot, bog sage, holy basil, kale, fava beans, calendula and torch tithonia (also known as Mexican sunflower) all find a place among the farm’s raised soil mounds. “Diversity is the big thing here, that’s why we have a lot of diverse kinds of plants,” Khankhanian tells me as we walk through the garden. “But even within the cannabis [on our farm], it’s as diverse as it can be. When you plant from seed, every plant is different.” PHOTO Claire Weissbluth Moon Gazer Farms...

Canadian cannabis stocks hide compensation consultant fees
(ACB, APHA, Aphria Inc., Bitcoin, Canada, Cannabis, CGC, Consultants, Consulting, Events, Green Organic Dutchman, Green Organic Dutchman, Grower, Investment, Investors, Law, Loans, Management, Media, New York, OGRMF, Organic, OrganiGram Inc, Regulations, Social Media, Stocks, TGODF, United States, Digital Currencies, Pharmaceuticals, Hedge Fund, Security) Authored by: Teri Buhl Canadian cannabis company CEOs have been making big pay packages over the last few years coinciding with net losses. But, they have not been disclosing details required by Canadian law about who they employ to come up with the pay formulas and how much these consultants are paid. A review of Canadian public filings by Cannabis Law Report has found at least three publicly traded companies who have failed to be transparent in telling shareholders how much they were actually paying their executives. It appears that some packages could be described as “over-compensation” and were / are making some individuals very wealthy. Compensation consultants are often required by boards of publicly traded companies to enable an independent outside party to come up with a realistic approach to how the CEO and also key management are compensated thus stopping companies using internal resources to pull any old figure or package out of thin air. Cannabis operations that have grown...
