Top marijuana stocks to invest in have shown signs of upward momentum to start April. As March comes to a close the cannabis sector has seen a sharp decline in market value. This is mostly due to two negative market sentiments and not with the cannabis market specifically. Recently we’ve seen top cannabis companies expand rapidly establishing a presence in the future cannabis market. At the present time, many new states have begun legalizing cannabis on a state level more than 2/3 of the US population are able to purchase cannabis.
Last week New York was another state to pass cannabis legalization, and this helped reignite the cannabis sector. In addition, Chuck Schumer made comments on introducing federal cannabis legalization in the near future. In reality, federal legalization could be one of the biggest catalysts for the cannabis industry in 2021. With the bipartisan SAFE Banking Act already in the Senate, these next few months could be monumental for the cannabis industry in the US.
As the market continues to grow many cannabis companies are growing rapidly through strategic mergers and acquisitions building larger footprints across America. Some of these companies are vertically integrated and others are ancillary cannabis companies that do not actually work with the cannabis plant. Generally speaking, these companies provide a service that could grow alongside the cannabis industry as things progress.Investing In Cannabis Stocks In April
