The Canadian marijuana stocks we’ve weeded out have seen average revenue growth of 53.3% quarter over quarter
SmallCapPower | December 10, 2019: Cannabis stocks have had a rough six months due to the following: 1) scandals and management turnover in the industry; 2) cannabis companies are finding it hard to compete with black-market prices amongst poor retail store roll-outs in Ontario and Quebec; and 3) the recent vaping epidemic with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reporting 2,290 cases, and 47 deaths related to vaping. Canadian cannabis companies have seen a sharp decline in stock prices since March, with the Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences Index ETF (TSX:HMMJ) down 63% to $8.97, from its most recent high of $23.65 on March 19, 2019. Amongst all the turmoil there have been some companies that have managed to rapidly grow sales. Today we have dug up four Canadian marijuana stocks that have seen impressive quarter-over-quarter revenue growth.
