Three Stocks to Watch in the U.S. Cannabis Market

According to Timothy Sykes, now is the time to look closer at the opportunities in smallcap cannabis stocks. Alaska, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and the District of Columbia have all legalized the sale of recreational marijuana, and many more jurisdictions are about to follow suit. Canada has also changed medical marijuana laws starting on April 1, 2014, creating a $3.4 billion opportunity.

With these aforementioned factors, Sykes sees big potential for investors.

He cites three companies as being interesting to watch on the US cannabis market specifically: GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH), American Green Inc. (ERBB), and Cannabis Science (CBIS). The market caps are $1.5 billion, $33 million, and $57 million respectively.

With more states legalizing recreational use and the new medical marijuana scheme in Canada, the industry is set to continue legitimizing, gaining more blue chip companies. However, in the interim, there are still some illegitimate companies on the horizon that are worth keeping a close eye on to avoid.
