Three Ways to Cash in on Cannabis Right Now

By Matthew Milner, on Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Wayne was a tease in his article last week:

He showed you why right now is the time to make a fortune in legal marijuana…

But he didn’t tell you where to look for investment opportunities.

So today I’ll pick up where he left off:

Without further ado, here are three ways to cash in on the marijuana bull market.

Invest in a Mutual Fund

The first way to cash in on legal weed will be familiar to you:

Invest in a mutual fund.

For instance, Motif, an interesting new mutual fund company, offers a basket of stocks called “Legal Marijuana.”

Unfortunately, most companies in this fund are just barely involved in marijuana.

For example, Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD) is developing some high-impact new drugs — but only a tiny percentage of them have anything to do with cannabis.

Furthermore, this fund has returned just 24.7% over the past 12 months. That’s not much better than the 19% the S&P delivered in the same time frame.

Bottom line: funds like this clearly aren’t the most lucrative way to invest in marijuana.

Penny Pot Stocks

The second way to cash in on legal cannabis will also be familiar to you:

You could invest in “penny” pot stocks.

People are making a ton of money on these stocks right now.

For example, look at CV Sciences (OTCMKTS: CVSI).

CVSI develops synthetic versions of Cannabidiol — that’s the chemical in marijuana known for its medicinal properties.

In just two years, this stock shot up from $2 to $147, a gain of more than 7,000%.

That’s like turning $1,000 into $70,000, or $10,000 into $700,000.

There’s just one problem: these penny stocks are extremely volatile.

Take a look at the CV Sciences chart:

After reaching a peak of $147, CVSI cratered

Today it trades at about $0.34.

So if you decide to invest in penny stocks, make sure to have an expert guiding you.

“Blue-Chip” Pot Stocks

OK, so how about something less risky?

For example, look at GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH). This company is known for a cannabis product called Sativex that helps treat multiple sclerosis.

GWPH has been on a tear lately. It’s up about 45% in the last 12 months.

Unfortunately, as the Motley Fool reported, “… it's probably safe to say that this high-flying stock is going to have trouble pushing much higher.”

Folks: legal cannabis is the fastest-growing sector in the U.S. This market could soon reach $100 billion.

When you have the once or twice-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get into a sector like this, you shouldn’t be shooting for gains of 30% or 40%...

You should be looking for ways to earn 10x, 20x, 100x or more.

Otherwise, you’re leaving a lot of money on the table. 

Here’s What We Recommend Instead

So now you know three ways you could invest in legal cannabis right now.

And now you know that Wayne and I recommend staying away from all of them.

You see, my point today was to make sure you understood the limitations of these investment options.

But now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, it’s time to move on.

So, are you ready to learn the real way to cash in on legal cannabis?


Because, tomorrow — for real this time — Wayne is going to show you exactly how.

Stay tuned...
