New Cannabis Ventures and 420Investor CFA Alan Brochstein on MedReleaf, Canopy Growth, Cannabis Wheaton

James West

I have over 600 subscribers paying me for this information, so I want to be careful about that as well. In Canada, I don’t want to say it’s necessarily my favourite stock at the moment, but I know people care about Canopy Growth, and this is a company I’ve followed for a while; I just toured their factory again. And I don’t always like their stock. They are a client of ours. But that’s one that I think has really pulled back a lot, and people don’t seem to be appreciating a lot of the positives there. I think it’s been kind of a storm in general for Canopy Growth of late.

These are a range of alcohol-free, cannabinoid-charged adult beverages that can be consumed instead of alcholic beverages but without the detrimental side effects of alcohol.
