The smaller Canadian cannabis stocks we’ve picked have seen their stock prices surge over the past month
SmallCapPower | May 13, 2020: The cannabis sector has been seen as less susceptible to a COVID-19 related economic slowdown as its consumers either need marijuana medically or are highly reluctant to stop using it recreationally. While some of the bigger players, such as Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX:ACB) and Cronos Group Inc. (TSX:CRON), have seen their share price suffer lately, the smaller Canadian cannabis stocks we’ve dug up have experienced the best upward momentum during the past month.
