Further details regarding the equal-weighted munKNEE Pure-Play Pot Stock Index (PPSI) are as follows:

Unlike every marijuana ETF (see this TalkMarkets article) and every other cannabis tracking index (see this TalkMarkets article), the PPSI excludes "wanna-be" companies that generate little, if any, of their total revenue from the cannabis industry so as to reflect the true health of the marijuana industry in the U.S. and Canada. As such, the following companies, while trading well above the minimum Index listing criteria of US$1/share are excluded: GW Pharmaceuticals, Abbvie, Arena Pharmaceuticals, GrowGeneration, Scotts Miracle-Gro, Innovative Industrial Properties REIT, New Age Beverages, Alcanna, and Alkerna.
  • The average market capitalization of the munKNEE PPSI is US$1.5B.
