I used to play with cbis, I wouldn't touch it now. I hold some mjna that I am happy to sit on, I think they have a great future.

Best way to invest in cannabis would be a funding a gardener. I just happen to know a pro who needs funding ;-)
Maybe move your gardener to a state like Illinois that is just now establishing an MJ infrastructure. By the way, why don't you like CBIS? They are one of the original stocks in a lot of our early portfolios? They seem to always lag behind the other tickers but rocket up all of the sudden. Any news that you came across?

What are you guys looking for exactly when deciding to put some money into one of these companies? It looks like CBD is going to hit the medicine market more so than THC, and I'd be interested in putting a little money into a company or two which is doing more research or has more products with CBD.

I buy only on Hype and news. I don't hold them long term... yet. I will be 90% out of the MJ market within two months. Then I will start buying back in mid summer, then sell if it bumps, then go all in mid December. It may not work going forward, but it has the past three years.

I haven't read through the entire thread yet, but to the folks who think this will be a 'fad' it will not. If the government gets out of the way a bit, cannabis will completely change the way doctors treat a number of things.

If you have not heard of CBD...


I recently quit smoking cigarettes (after 18 years) and my asthma has been killing me ever since (I've learned this is common). Sometimes in the middle of the night, I have an asthma attack, my bronchial tubes tighten, I have difficulty breathing, and my prescription strength albuterol inhaler simply doesn't work. I lose at least 2 hours sleep those nights, and the next day is rough. A few weeks ago, I did an experiment. I woke up with an asthma attack, and took a few hits of pot. After 20 minutes I was feeling much better and then just two puffs off the inhaler, and I was back to sleep. And the next day, much easier.

Believe me, when doctors and researchers aren't tied down by the gov't and get to learn more about THC and CBD, we're going to see some more medical miracles. This is going to be HUGE.

bemac, check out CANV for a CBD play. GWPRF is as close to a MJ blue chip that I know of, second only to CANN. I also buy and sell, usually Dec through mid March. I kept some later last year and didn't do well. I have been playing MJNA, CBIS, GRNH, EAPH, FSPM, GWPRF, HEMP, FSPM, MYEC, TRTC, RFMK. If seeking alpha bashes a stock, I buy it, usually. I'm banking that Obama will legalize it on a federal level. Who would of guessed Obamacare would pass or reverse sanctions on Cuba.

The big money can be made by researching and betting right on some of the micro pennies, like we did last year. (.001 to .80 in 2 months) also check out marijuanaindex.org

Closed out almost all of my EAPH this week. I will most likely jump back in at some point, but not near the amount I had in it, going to be very cautious until mid summer.

I thought after the news they got the price would be much higher. I still hold a little for a moon shoot. My price payed was .0088 so I m in a little different boat. Please don't do anything based on what im doing. If they do everything they say they want to do, it will still be a great stock to own.

What I like to do when I'm not sure is sell half of my position. Good luck RVW.

MH are you out at this point? It is definitely a slow climb compared to last year, but look at the drops in the DOW. The MJ stocks are holding up better than the big boards, IMO.

I'm still all in and not doing too bad.

I missed the bounce on eaph,, still watching though and it looks like they are dumping millions into the bid , Im seeing it go back down near term.

Dumped the rest of my EAPH today. May be a huge mistake, but happy with my return. It took all day to dump them.

Market makers were probably waiting for someone to sell before the next leg up. I hope not for your sake, DC.

IMO, the key at this stage is diversify and hold some of the big names. If you look at the marijuana index, you'll see the percentage that they invest into each stock. That could be used as a hint to know what is a safer bet.

Gook Luck All!

Just going by last PR. From the PR "Revenue estimates for Medicated Markets facilities fiscal 2015 should be ready for presentation and disclosure on Monday February 16th; with details including exact strains planted this season, and harvest time lines." I sold at .0315 and .031, so im just buying some of that back.

Thanks looks like people fighting to sell shares today, sellers with 1 and 2m plus in the wings and price down over 16% today doesn't bode well for news.

I think its because their news has been shit lately. Also they ran people along last year. Ill take this gamble today even with all the selling. However, Im not holding my breath on earth shattering news.

How To Benefit When Colombia Becomes the Saudi Arabia of Cannabis Oil
Ron Holland

Forget about ISIS, OPEC, the problems with hydraulic fracturing or fracking, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran as well as wars for oil and gas reserves and pipeline routes now going on throughout the Middle East and the Ukraine. The next oil rush will be cannabis oil for medical use and the winner will be the nation of Colombia, with its perfect climate for year-round outdoor medical marijuana production. In Colombia, the cannabis outdoor grow facilities cost of production is around 10% of the cost of present expensive indoor grow facilities where massive electricity requirements and high labor costs will eventually make this route uncompetitive and unprofitable.

Imagine if you could go back in history and have the opportunity to invest in a startup oil company in 1938 when oil was first discovered in Saudi Arabia? Think about the millions that could have been made over the period with just a tiny investment. Saudi Arabia is the world's dominant oil producer and exporter and although accurate details on its reserves are hard to come by it is probably second in petroleum reserves in the world.

My name is Ron Holland and I have followed this exciting new industry for a few years now. Regardless of your personal views on the recreational use of marijuana or the substantial medical benefits, the US and other nations are moving quickly now to legalize at the very least medical cannabis.

Now, some advocates will claim the growing research into medical benefits as one reason behind the new, more enlightened view by politicians on cannabis but I question this viewpoint. The medical benefits might be the cover story but the bottom line for all politicians in Washington, DC as well as every state capitol is seldom what is good for the population but rather what is best for the politicians. In the case of medical or recreational cannabis the reasons are the twin benefits of more government revenue and more political contributions to guarantee re-election.

After all, the prisons are already filled with generally innocent, non-violent offenders who have drug possession charges against them. After legalization, these mostly poor and minority offenders should be released but they won't be because of the prison lobby. Many in law enforcement at all levels have been corrupted by drug payoffs and confiscated properties now make up a large part of their official and off-the-books revenues.

The court system and lawyers have become fat, corrupt and wealthy because of the War on Drugs and they don't feel the need to make political contributions like they formally did. Finally, criminal elements have historically controlled all illegal drugs and they will continue to do so but marijuana is a free growing plant not a drug and never should have been classified as such or made illegal in the first place. Legalization will remove cannabis profits and control away from criminals and make it a revenue generator for government.

It's All About the Money

Yes all laws, legislation and government actions are usually all about the money regardless of the false public packaging to the voting public. The politicians are tired of watching other special interests benefit from the War on Drugs and now they want in on the substantial gravy train of government revenue to counter historic funding deficits at the federal, state and local levels. Second, they want more legal political contributions and cannabis legalization for medical and eventually recreational benefits will hopefully generate a new source of political contributions.

So the much public Washington War on Drugs over the last few decades failed but only if the real intent was to reduce drug crime and consumption. While this was the goal sold to the gullible American public, in fact, like most legislation the real intent was to generate funding for special interests such as the prison industry, lawyers and court system and criminal efforts thus creating the need for more funding, graft and corresponding growth in law enforcement. The goal was to exponentially expand this once respected local institution into a federalized police force controlled by the state and federal political establishment with the aim of people control rather than crime control.

Today if you look around in America, this goal has been achieved with a local police force in name only ready at a moment's notice to be federalized into shock troops with corresponding military weaponry, helicopter assault teams and armored vehicles.

The Old Cheech and Chong Stoner Analogy Will Not Work With Medical Marijuana

First, forget the growing body of hard evidence showing the tremendous medical and health benefits of marijuana and how that might transition into smoking a joint to alleviate health problems and reduce pain and other symptoms. This is how it is today because cannabis has been an illegal substance for decades but in the future smoking anything will become as outdated as buggy whip manufacturers after the advent of the automobile.

You have to be smoking something to really think most physicians are going to write you a prescription for a joint to smoke marijuana with all the medical studies and public awareness about the harmful effects of smoking? This is a very short-term phenomenon because of the history of smoking marijuana and nothing more.

Every marijuana bud is different in terms of THC levels, how strong it is, what type works best for which illnesses and pain or epilepsy symptoms. Cannabis flower buds might be what my generation grew up with but there is a new day coming for medical marijuana and it is based on extracting the active elements in cannabis (at least 85 cannabinoids have been identified so far) as pure oils where standardization can be as specific as prescription drugs and targeted to what is best for specific individual health problems and conditions. Remember, the real drug epidemic together with harmful and deadly side effects is created and promoted by Big and Bad Pharma at your nearest pharmacy but this is a discussion for another day.

So Forget Buds and Remember Oils Are the Future of Medical Cannabis

Although cannabis flower buds and smoking marijuana for medical benefits might be here today it will be gone in a few short years. Of course, the stoner lifestyle will likely continue forever but only for recreation and not where health issues are involved and my discussion here only pertains to legal medical cannabis. Cannabis oil is cheap to ship globally, very inexpensive to produce when grown naturally outside and will become just another pharmaceutical drug in the near future. The lowest cost producing countries and companies will become real winners while the non-competitive, indoor producers will slowly die out.

How Many Oranges Are Grown Commercially in Alaska, North Carolina or Canada?

You know the answer is zero as well as the reasons why. It is simply too darn cold to grow tropical lemons, grapefruits, pineapple or oranges in non-tropical regions. Yes, they could be grown indoors but just as for cannabis the costs are prohibitive with all the water required, heat in the winter, air conditioning in the summer and grow lamps year round. While one crop of cannabis can be grown annually in much of the world during the summer season outdoors, complete a growth cycle and then die in the fall, this really isn't a solution in an increasingly cost competitive world.

Today, in most non-friendly climates indoor grow facilities are all the rage for now but the grow facilities cost millions up front to build, remodel and turn into a grow facility. But note that growing indoors is almost ten times as expensive as growing outside in a perfect climate where sun, water and fresh air are free and there is no electricity required for grow lamps, heat in the winter, air conditioning in the summer and high power needs year round to drain the heat from the grow lamps.

This is why Colombia will become the Saudi Arabia of Cannabis oil. It has the perfect outdoor climate where cannabis can grow 365 days each year with multiple crops grown and harvested annually rather than only one crop a year in the summer in most temperate climates. More importantly none of the expensive energy requirements of artificial indoor grow facilities are involved.

Imagine if magically some country could produce a high quality automobile for $3,000 instead of $30,000. Can you imagine the company profit potential? Would you like to know more about the world's coming low cost producer of cannabis oil? Click here to learn more.

Very enticing article Ahillock. If any colombian stocks are out there please post. What about Mexico? It can grow good MJ and is a NAFTA partner. A lot of fighting around Acapulco I'm hearing unfortunately for the people. Acapulco Gold can cure anything, IMO.

Been loading up on EAPH over the past few weeks. They are claiming big news coming out soon, maybe today. Still a little worried about the company in general, but hope to play the pump on news. I would also like to see their quarterly report, that should be very telling if they are fake or not. They do have a history of not following through with deals.

MDCN has a pretty crazy run last week, but other than that the MJ market has been pretty boring. The FITX saga has been somewhat interesting to follow.

You still on board with HEMP?

2015 has been ugly for their stock price, so far.
I got back into HEMP on Monday. Nice bounce Tuesday, gave some back Wednesday. I'll watch it and see what happens. If you look at marijuanaindex.org, you will see a nice steady climb. Nice to see after a 2 year correction.

You said it honu. CANA has done good for me. I've since taken some off of the table, which I need to do more often, but it may reverse course and keep running. MJNA went up 25% on Tuesday. HEMP had a nice bounce on Tuesday also. I think the whole sector is worthy of a modest position. Watch closely and take profits.

That is pretty interesting there... Idk.

How do feel the cannabis stock market will react if California legalizes adult use? It will about double the size of the current legal market I think. Should make the stocks soar right?

Anybody been in Canadian MJ stocks. Yesterday Dumped all my ACBFF. Picked it up last summer. Will be picking up Emmbf next week.

These stocks are going to be very interesting over the next 6 months. Wanted to hold my ACB until then, but I was all in on that one and had to take the gain.
