Five Stocks to Know Ahead of Canada’s Regulations for Cannabis Topicals

As cannabidiol (CBD) just begins its cultural renaissance, the market could balloon to $22 billion by 2022, notes The Brightfield Group.

Fueling part of that potential momentum, the Canadian government has proposed legislative changes to make Cannabis topicals fully legal for sale in Canada no later than October 17, 2019.

The $4.2 trillion wellness industry could one of many to benefit.

The very healing properties of marijuana are why spa, wellness and skincare industries are introducing a range of products with cannabis as a key ingredient.

According to Forbes, “Hemp-derived CBD has been touted in several medical studies as having a myriad of health benefits ranging from treating psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and eczema to minimizing seizures, stress, and insomnia.”

With sizable growth in store, some companies are already experiencing incredible growth, including The Yield Growth Corporation (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF), HEXO Corporation (TSX:HEXO) (OTC:HYYDF), Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (OTC:TGODF) (TSX:TGOD), Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. (CSE:CWEB) (OTC:CWBHF), and Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ:CRON).

The Yield Growth Corporation’s (BOSS) (BOSQF) subsidiary Urban Juve just registered three new Urban Juve Skin Exfoliants as cosmetics with Health Canada, bringing the total number of Health Canada Urban Juve registered products to 29. Yield Growth subsidiary UJ Topicals has rights to infuse the three exfoliants with THC and is currently aligning with licensed cannabis manufacturers so that it can prepared to be go to market in Canada in late 2019 when the cannabis topicals law is expected to be become law.

Another likely beneficiary is HEXO Corporation (HEXO), which has been rallying since announcing it applied for listing on the NYSE. Upon approval, HEXO Corporation will trade on the NYSE American under ticker symbol “HEXO”, the same symbol the Company’s common shares on the Canadian exchange. HEXO shares will also continue to trade on the OTC PINK.

In addition, the company reached a construction and licensing milestone for the first phase of its one million sq. ft. greenhouse expansion. The milestone will help HEXO increase its annual production capacity to 108,000 kg of dried cannabis.

According to CEO and and Co-founder Sébastien St. Louis, “Receiving initial licensing on our 1,000,000 sq. ft. facility is a huge accomplishment for the entire HEXO team. We are proud that the construction project is hitting all its milestones while respecting aggressive timelines and staying on budget. The new production facility allows us to continue to scale-up which, once fully operational, will give customers across Canada access to HEXO products. Our team has been hard at work for the past couple of months nurturing new mother plants and preparing cuttings. We will start moving plants into the new facility with the pre-prepared mother plants and cuttings in alignment with our continuous harvest methodology.”

Another likely beneficiary is The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (OTC:TGODF), which is developing a distribution hug for large-scale beverage and edible products that can be introduced in Canada and abroad.
