Best Cannabis Stocks To Watch In 2022

Are you looking for the best marijuana stocks to buy going into 2022? In December the top cannabis stocks to invest in have declined to their lowest trading levels in 2021 this month. This year delays with Congress passing any federal cannabis reform have severely impacted how pot stocks performed in the market. This year of declines could be a good opportunity for new investors looking to invest in the growing cannabis industry.

 

As more big business movers and shakers appear to be ratcheting up their incursions into the cannabis industry, industry advocates are stepping up their defense.

Adult-use recreational marijuana sales begin on New Year’s Day 2022. From possession limits to travel tips, here’s what you need to know to keep on the right side of the new law.

On Jan. 1, 2022, adult-use recreational marijuana will become available for purchase in Montana. The launch of the new market raises a wide range of questions, from how much marijuana an individual can possess, to whether they can consume it in a national park, to the types of products that will be available for purchase.

Legal marijuana is a smoking hot growth industry in the U.S., Canada, and beyond. The global cannabis market is projected to soar from $20.5 billion back in 2020 to $90.4 billion by 2026.¹ And these estimates are likely conservative, as the U.S. moves closer to wide-ranging federal legalization and European nations, including economic powerhouse Germany, prepare to do the same in 2022.

The best part about investing in legal marijuana right now is that despite all of the progress, there are ample opportunities to get in right near the ground floor given where we are in the legal lifecycle. Plus, many top pot stocks are trading near all-time lows heading into the new year, after they were beaten down in 2021, along with other former covid high-flyers and growth stocks.

I’m focused on being a leader and advocate to break down the stigmas surrounding CBD as well as the stigmas women, and especially mothers, face in our society today,” she tells Romper.

She says her company’s goal is to empower women to take control of their sleep, stress, strength, and sex.
