Index Performance

The criteria for being included in the munKNEE Pure-Play Pot Stock Index is that the stock is consistently trading for a minimum of US$1/share and generates 100% of its revenue directly from the sale of cannabis products.

As we have previously noted, the major surge in the price of marijuana stocks in January seems due to the hope that the Democrats' winning the two Senate seats in Georgia giving them a majority in the Senate will result in the passage of more favorable Federal marijuana legalization in the U.S.. In addition,

  • Aphria and Tilray announced plans to merge, creating what will become the largest global cannabis company by revenue;
  • HEXO and beverage giant Molson Coors announced that their joint venture, Truss CBD USA, is preparing to launch a new beverage and
  • Canopy holds warrants to acquire MSO Acreage Holdings no later than 60 days after the federal legalization of cannabis.
  • Most of the other outperformances were due to a major spillover of positive sentiment as a result of the Democrat victories in Georgia.
