It’s a scary time to be an investor.
With that said, the worst thing investors can do is panic. There are still scores of excellent stocks to consider purchasing, and now might be a particularly appropriate time, since many of these stocks are cheaper than they were at the beginning of the year. Here are 2 cannabis stocks investors must buy today and hold through the bearish market: Charlotte’s Web ( OTC: CWBHF) and Innovative Industrial Properties( NYSE: IIPR)
1. Charlotte’s Web
Charlotte’s Web is the leader in the U.S. market for cannabidiol (CBD) items. And while this market provides some chances, it likewise comes with its share of difficulties. Most especially, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just recently warned customers about the risks of CBD-based items. According to the health market regulator, CBD can trigger side effects consisting of liver injury. The FDA likewise stated there hasn’t sufficed research done about CBD, and the claims concerning its supposed healing benefits stay unverified.
Regardless of this difficulty– and others– I believe Charlotte’s Web deserves purchasing; let’s consider three reasons. The company has a strong retail presence in the U.S., with its items in about 11,000 retail locations around the nation. It deserves keeping in mind that the business just recently made an acquisition that will further broaden its retail presence. On March 23, Charlotte’s Web announced it was acquiring Abacus Health Products in an all-stock transaction valued at around 99 million Canadian dollars.
Per the contract between the 2 business, each of Abacus’s investors will receive 0.85 share of Charlotte’s Web for each share of Abacus owned. The deal is expected to close in the second quarter. Abacus Health offers a suite of over-the-counter hemp products (hemp is stemmed from CBD) and has a strong retail existence in the U.S. Likewise, Abacus Health boasts a network of about 16,500 health care practitioners. Thanks to this acquisition, Charlotte’s Web’s presence will expand to “15,000 special doors.”
Second, Charlotte’s Web is currently in the process of considerably ramping up its production capacity. The company is building a 137,000 square foot production facility in Colorado that will multiply its output capacity by an element of 10.
Charlotte’s Web’s comparatively appealing evaluation– paired with its strong retail existence and leading position in the U.S. CBD market– makes the business one of the best financial investment choices in the cannabis market.
2. Innovative Industrial Characteristic
Innovative Industrial Residence is a genuine estate investment trust (REIT) that focuses on renting areas to business within the medical marijuana market.
There are many more states in which medical uses of marijuana are approved (there are more than 30 mentions that have actually legislated medical uses of marijuana); given that Ingenious Industrial Residence is the leading REIT that focuses on renting homes to state-licensed medical marijuana business, the business will likely continue its growth to more states.

Second, few marijuana business have actually been able to publish constant revenues, and others have actually recorded profits thanks to one-time modifications or other things that had nothing to do with their core operations. For instance, during the fourth quarter of its 2020, Aurora Marijuana tape-recorded a net income of CA$104 million, however this consisted of unrealized gains on derivative liability of CA$1438 million.
By contrast, Ingenious Industrial Properties has regularly tape-recorded revenues. During the fourth quarter of 2019, the company’s earnings was $9.6 million, up from $2.3 million compared to the year-ago duration. For the full year, Ingenious Industrial Characteristic taped a net income of $221 million, up by 292.7%compared to the fiscal year2018 Ingenious Industrial Residence’ ability to publish recurring earnings is a significant selling point considered that few of its rivals are doing the exact same.
Innovative Industrial Properties is performing substantially much better than the more comprehensive market up until now this year. Year to date, the business’s shares are up by 11.7%, while the S&P 500 is down by 18.6%. In my view, Ingenious Industrial Characteristic will continue to exceed the market and most other cannabis business, making it an excellent marijuana stock to buy right now.
