E Cannabis Central: 2 Steps Forward (April & May); 1 Step Back (June)

A month ago I wrote that, with the non-penny cannabis stock sector advancing significantly for 2 months in a row (+11% in April and +25.3% in May), it might well be suggesting that the sector had finally hit bottom at the end of March but the -8.0% performance in June shows it to be a "2 steps forward and 1 step back" situation.

Below is the June performance of the constituents of the equally-weighted Non-penny Pot Stock Index (NPSI) of 25 pure-play cannabis stocks within each of the 3 categories that represent their primary area of focus in the cannabis industry.
