As the pro-cannabis MORE Act clears the House Judiciary Committee, it has the potential for legalization on a national level – prompting investors to monitor these five innovative and emerging CBD stocks ($INNO, $ CCHWF, $AYUR, $ FFNTF, $TLRY).
Since the beginning of October, governments around the world have prepared to reduce their coronavirus-era travel restrictions, which has boosted shareholder confidence in the travel and tourism industry, sending global stock exchanges into a market frenzy. In an effort to expedite the return to normalcy and promote economic drivers, members of the U.S. House of Representatives are advancing the MORE Act, a bill that will deliver a profound economic impact and produce thousands of high-paying jobs nationwide. The new legislation is equally viewed as a catalyst for considerable investment in rising hi-tech companies utilizing cannabis-based products.
In recent years, there has been a notable emergence in biotech and pharmaceuticals companies that have capitalized on CBDs (“cannabinol”, the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis and an essential component in medical purposes) manufacture modern and innovative products.
As of now, the upcoming MORE Act has attracted broad congressional support from both sides of the aisle, though there are nevertheless a plethora of potential obstacles. However, even with the multitude of variables, the financial hype around its prospective passage demonstrates the strength of the expanding CBD industry. For investors interested in the flourishing industry, whether experienced or novice, the following stock-listed CBD companies are on the verge of a market upsurge.
1. InnoCan Pharma (CSE: INNO) (FSE: IP4) (OTCQB: INNPF)

As the company has commenced operations in the United States and Europe, including with its CBD cosmetic products, the upcoming MORE Act should have a major impact on the company’s impending value.

In September, Columbia via Cannabist secured approvals for fourteen dispensaries in the State of Florida, in addition to adding over 38,000 square feet of cultivation and manufacturing sites to its over 100,000 sq. ft. operation. In recent years, the State of Florida has received a significant boost in its cannabis industry due to the opening of its once overly restrictive laws. With the House of Representative’s upcoming legislation, the bill would greatly assist companies like Columbia which contracts its services by each individual state and its established laws instead of working nationwide.
While the stock has had trended downward over the past few months, investors should take notice of the financial forecasts and approaching market trends.

According to the Canada Regulatory Review, in 2020, medical cannabis exports from Canada were valued at $43 million USD – an increase of 229% from 2019. Therefore, any greater legalization of cannabis will benefit enterprises like Ayurcann Holdings, driving investment in the promising company.
Earlier this month, the company entered into a considerable deal with National Cannabis Distribution (“NCD”), an exclusive and leading wholesale distributor in Saskatchewan, Canada. The strategic agreement also allows Ayurcann to advertise and initiate substantial investor relations campaigns in order to build its branding in Canada and beyond.
Due to its bona fides as well as its recent order from NCD, whether or not the pending American legislation passes the American Congress, investors should continue to monitor Ayurcann Holdings Corp., which is ranked on the Canadian Securities Exchange as well as the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

As an American company, 4Front Ventures has been fighting the policy battle since its founding.
Since its establishment in 2011, the company has been granted over sixty licenses with clients across the country, including in Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Illinois.

Though the sudden market boost was uncanny, it was championed by a $4 billion dollar revenue future. Though this assessment indeed fell short, the MORE Act shows the company’s potential and room for substantial global growth.
Currently, the company is heavily investing in several diversified sectors of the cannabis industry, building a tenacious CBD product line. In 2020, the company launched its own brand of medicinal cannabis products called “Symbios.” It will include flowers, pre-rolled cigarettes, and cosmetic oils. In addition, even before the upcoming legislation, Tilray began developing new opportunities and ventures, such as CBD-infused drinks and edibles.
Today, many investors are resentful of Tilray’s massive market increase and abrupt decrease. Though these shareholders are correct in their logic, they must absorb the comprehensive picture of Tilray and its imminent rise back to over $60 USD per share – whether the MORE Act passes in the coming weeks or fails to pass its subsequent committee hearings. As of now, the company is ranked on NASDAQ, the largest global stock exchange, and is up over 106% this year.
Each investor must make that decision based on his or her judgment of the market.
