Growing public acceptance of medical marijuana is having secondary effects on other industries.
- Products using cannabidiol (CBD) are increasingly popular in areas such as wellness and cosmetics.
- Hemp production is growing, with experimental projects improving cannabis cultivation techniques.
- Services needed to support these markets, such as payment systems, are growing.
Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA) (MCOA Profile) is benefiting from this in many ways, having invested in hemp, CBD products, rentable cultivation space and payment systems. Tilray, Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY) is producing CBD oils and has become one of the first companies to sell these for medical use in the United Kingdom. Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE: CGC) has received a massive investment from a drinks company, with the aim of producing CBD-infused drinks. GW Pharmaceuticals Plc (NASDAQ: GWPH) created the first prescription medicine derived from cannabis plants to receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval and is now heavily involved in research into using CBD to tackle epilepsy. Such drugs may also become useful for fighting insomnia, the subject of a new study by Cronos Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON).
