Expansion continues in the cannabis patch, with organic footprint growth among many of the leaders in the space, even as the pandemic rages on. That expansion takes different forms for different leading names. But the overall picture remains one of high-ROI assumptions.
We look at several of the most active names in the space here, including: Green Thumb Industries Inc (OTCMKTS:GTBIF), Trulieve Cannabis Corp (OTCMKTS:TCNNF), and Liberty Health Sciences Inc (OTCMKTS:LHSIF). Green Thumb Industries Inc (OTCMKTS:GTBIF) just announced it will open Rise Duncansville, its 47th retail location, on June 30. According to the release, profits from the first day of sales will be donated to Last Prisoner Project, a nonprofit coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives, and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry. Green Thumb also donated the first day of profits to the Last Prisoners Project when Rise Chambersburg opened in Pennsylvania earlier this month. “We are grateful to create jobs throughout the state as we continue expanding our retail footprint in Pennsylvania during the COVID-19 crisis,” said Green Thumb Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ben Kovler. “The team is also honored to partner with the Last Prisoner Project on the important work of redressing the past and continuing harms of unjust laws and policies so that victimless cannabis prisoners can walk free.”
Green Thumb Industries Inc (OTCMKTS:GTBIF) bills itself as a company that manufactures and sells various cannabis products in the United States. The company’s cannabis products include flower, concentrates for dabbing and vaporizing, edibles, and topicals. The company markets its products through third-party retailers. It also owns and operates a chain of 50 retail stores under the RISE dispensaries name. The company was actually also named a Best Workplace 2018 by Crain’s Chicago Business. It will be interesting to see if the stock can break out of its recent sideways action. Over the past week, the stock is net flat, and looking for something new to spark things. Green Thumb Industries Inc (OTCMKTS:GTBIF) pulled in sales of $138M in its last reported quarterly financials, representing top line growth of 271.9%. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($101.8M against $182.5M, respectively).
One key name in the group that deserves some attention is CanaFarma Hemp Products Corp. (CSE:CNFA.CN), a full-service company operating in the hemp industry offering a full range of hemp-related products and services to the consumer wellness market. CanaFarma’s flagship brand is “Yooforic” – ie, like “euphoric”, but with unique spelling – a line of hemp-based CBD-infused products for sale, meeting the highest standards for performance and purity, including gums, tinctures, and creams.
Even more importantly, the company’s model is driven by a unique marketing model that appears to be growing in terms of traction. Trailing sales and growth are quite strong, and CBD segment is increasingly attractive. We would also note that the hemp-sourced CBD market is growing at an 18.4% Compound Annual Growth Rate (2018-2022), which means it is now outpacing medical and recreational marijuana. This makes sense given that CBD has a much larger total addressable market than does marijuana given that it is not an intoxicant and has the potential to become a mainstream household industry.
