The munKNEE Canadian Cannabis LPs Index consists of the 5 largest pure-play vertically integrated (i.e. seed-to-sale) Canadian Licensed Producers (LPs). Below are the performances of its constituents for this week, in descending order, since the end of August (i.e. 5 weeks), and so far this year (YTD). Go here for the latest in analysis and commentary on each of the companies.

As I mentioned in my recent article on marijuana ETFs (see here), if you are interested in investing in the Canadian LP category the ETFs with the largest percentage of such stocks is the Global X Cannabis ETF (POTX) which, for comparison purposes, was UP 5.0% this week, is DOWN 10.8% in the last 5 weeks and is DOWN 58.8% YTD.)

If you believe that the category has more or less bottomed and is setting the stage to surge upwards then you might want to consider investing in one of the bull ETFs mentioned below::

  1. ETFMG 2x Daily Bull Alternative Harvest ETF (MJXL)
  2. Horizons 2x Bull Marijuana Companies ETF (HMJU)

Conversely, if you think the category is going to decline further you might want to consider investing in one of the following inversely leveraged ETFs:

  1. ETFMG 2x Daily Inverse Alternative Harvest ETF (MJIN)
  2. BetaPro 2x Inverse Canadian Marijuana Companies ETF (HMJI)
