    Lightbulb CANNABIS COMPANIES - investing in medical marihuana and industrial hemp stocks

    The age of cannabis is coming: Farmsubsidies will shrink and the market will choose hemp instead of corn and sugar for ethanol. Medical advantages of marihuana are largely known, but big pharma does´nt use it - because it´s too cheap. But we can see some changes evolving. Big government, special priviledges for corporate giants and drug prohibition will eventually disappear - probably because of government bankruptcies, but this does´nt matter. Finally, the market wins!

    There are already some small listed companies doing business in industrial hemp and medical marihuana.
    Here is an overview that i made because i´m planning to invest in cannabis stocks. I hope some of you might consider this information useful Maybe you know other companies that i didn´t find

    True. But if you look at the companies above than you'll see that they do serious business. Cannabis is so much more than a drug. It has a ton of applications.

    I actually made a 50% return in two days with MJNA.. penny stock.. just flipped it.. I have a friend who threw 500 at it just for kicks and hes gonna leave it in there long term. He's down over 50% right now, though.... he bought it at 17 cents or so and its down to 7 cents. I bought at 12 and sold at 18 cents during a period when it was making big swings. I just read the chart and took a risk that worked out well, fortunately. I even made a thread (maybe 6 months ago) about the stock and how it was making big swings that people could make (or lose) a lot of money off of.

    if you take out the system/bureaucracy (how life should really be)

    it would be so cheap and widespread that there would be no money in it.

    It is fun and easy to grow, the ladies make so many seeds they are free.

    So the best investment would be pocketing 100 seeds and dropping in your soil, and reap your organic, natural, sacramental or healthy beautiful reward from the earth and sun. It's one of the best companion plants and improves soil quality in stark contrast with maize/corn.

    If I were going the investment route I'd recommend acres of land, doesn't even need to be very fertile. Of course our governments would lock us up.

    I was watching these when Cali was voting on legalizing weed. They had some big jumps, but fell straight back down after the vote failed. You just have to be smart when you get into these, watch the news and make sure to get out quick.

    That's a fucking myth.

    Go to east side Santa Cruz some time and find out how much the houses there cost.

    Cannabis is also the US' biggest cash crop:

    How to invest in marijuana

    Mark Twain is said to have remarked that a gold rush is a good time to be in the pick and shovel business. Investors may be able to apply that same bit of wisdom to the growing number of U.S. states that have legalized pot.

    Although federal law prohibits the sale or possession of marijuana, Massachusetts last week joined the ranks of states — 18 plus Washington, D.C. — that allow its use for people suffering from chronic illnesses like cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. In Washington and Colorado, meanwhile, voters passed an initiative to allow pot for recreational use. Those changes have kickstarted a small but fast-growing medical-marijuana industry, estimated to be worth about $1.7 billion as of 2011, according to See Change Strategy, an independent financial-analysis firm that specializes in new markets. In Colorado alone, sales topped $181 million in 2010, and the business employed 4,200 state-licensed workers, says Aaron Smith, executive director of the National Cannabis Industry Association , a nonprofit trade group that campaigns for marijuana’s federal legalization.

    In addition to profiting itself from growing and selling marijuana, the industry benefits a slew of other businesses, such as insurers, lawyers and agricultural-equipment firms, experts say. “Call it the ‘green rush,’” says Derek Peterson, CEO of GrowOp Technology , an online retailer of hydroponics — products used in the cultivation of indoor plants — and a subsidiary of OTC stock Terra Tech TRTC +16.00% . “The industry is expanding, and there are all kinds of investment opportunities.”

    For regular investors looking to get in on the action — and without having to actually grow or sell drugs — there are several small-cap stocks that stand to gain from marijuana’s growing acceptance. Medbox MDBX +41.18% , an OTC stock with a $45 million market cap, for example, sells its patented dispensing machines to licensed medical-marijuana dispensaries. The machines, which dispense set doses of the drug, after verifying patients’ identities via fingerprint, could potentially be used in ordinary drugstores too, says Medbox founder Vincent Mehdizadeh. Based in Hollywood, Calif., the company already has 130 machines in the field, and it expects to install an additional 40 in the next quarter. “The smart money is trying to help with compliance and transparency,” Mehdizadeh says.

    Of course, investing in drugs the federal government still outlaws poses enormous risks to investors, says Sam Kamin, a law professor and the director of the Constitutional Rights & Remedies Program at the University of Denver. In fact, nearly 500 of the estimated 3,000 dispensaries nationwide have either been closed by the federal government or shut down in the past year, says a spokesman for StickyGuide.com , an online directory and review site for medical marijuana dispensaries — and yet another ancillary business that’s currently seeking investors.

    That said, there are many companies that appear to be betting on a change in federal law. Steep Hill is a quality-control laboratory that tests medical marijuana to see if there’s any contamination from mold, bacteria or harmful pesticides. The company, based in Oakland, Calif., is also actively seeking funding of up to $3 million. David Lampach, co-founder and president of Steep Hill, expects a federal law legalizing medical marijuana within the next decade. Cannabis Science in Colorado Springs, Colo. CBIS -29.61% , an OTC stock with a market cap of $41 million, is developing marijuana-based medicines to help cancer and HIV/AIDS patients. “We’re at the beginning of the revolution in medicine,” says CEO Robert Melamede.

    Other companies are creating a range of quirky products that allow people to use marijuana without smoking it. Medical Marijuana MJNA -16.81% , an OTC stock with a $69 million market cap, based in San Diego, Calif., offers more than 50 ways to ingest marijuana , from Dixie Elixir soda to Dixie Chill ice-cream and a range of Dixie Edibles, like chocolate truffles and crispy rice treats.

    While experts say competition in the medical-marijuana business is growing fast, they add that there are also still plenty of opportunities for entrepreneurs. For example, Troy Dayton, president and CEO of ArcView Group , an angel investor network for the industry, says demand has been growing for handheld tobacco vaporizers like those made by Ploom (which charges $250 for its “premium loose-leaf vaporizer”). “There’s a rush now to make the ideal vaporizer,” Dayton says. “There’s still room for a kingmaker in this space.”

    In the meantime, at least one drug company is directly selling medical marijuana to patients around the world. GW Pharmaceuticals (GBP), based in London, markets Sativex, billed as the world’s first marijuana-based medicine. With a market cap of around $137 million, it’s listed on the Alternative Investment Market, a submarket of the London Stock Exchange. Sativex is currently sold as a mouth spray to help alleviate symptoms of multiple sclerosis in several countries, including the U.K., New Zealand, Germany, Spain, Denmark and Canada, a spokesman says, and it is currently seeking FDA approval in the U.S. for use as a pain reliever in late-stage cancer patients.

    I will be writing my report on:

    Since the company doesn't want to address what I put in writing to them nearly 2 months ago, I am considering putting it on RIP OFF REPORT. ALL I got from there products which anyone can buy at http://www.dixiex.com/ is constipation. ZERO help with any inflammation or pain. If you take the time to read there website and other propaganda you'll see it's all very LEGAL. All written with one thing in mind. Money.

    I have no problem with that if they were selling a product that worked. There's another one on the market which I have to find someone who wants to make a few thousand driving it to Fla and I can't wait to try it but this one here is nonsense.

    Amazing, they seem to come out of the woodwork.
