The U.S. cannabis stocks we’ve discovered operate primarily in the United States and have recently listed, or plan to list, on a Canadian stock exchange
SmallCapPower | November 26, 2018: Canadian stock exchanges have served as a hot spot for U.S. cannabis companies as they list their shares north of the border to better access capital markets. Due to the complex regulatory environment in the U.S., where cannabis use may be legal at the state level but illegal at the federal level, such companies have increasingly turned to the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) to finance their businesses. MedMen Enterprises Inc. (CSE:MMEN) and Green Thumb Industries Inc. (CSE:GTII) are perhaps the most notable listings of U.S. operators on the CSE, both of which sport multi-billion dollar valuations. Today we have identified two U.S. cannabis stocks that have recently listed on the CSE, as well as one that has received conditional approval to list on the CSE.
*Market Cap and share prices as of November 22, 2018.
