The marijuana sector has witnessed tremendous growth in recent years. In fact, newfound support has allowed cannabis companies to gain access to capital, which has helped fuel further growth. Additionally, as more and more states legalize cannabis, the market will only get bigger. One way to capitalize on the sector is by investing in marijuana penny stocks, which allows investors to gain exposure to this rapidly growing industry without putting up a lot of capital.
With all of this positive momentum, it seems safe to say that the best is yet to come for the marijuana sphere and the companies involved. Thanks to continued research and advocacy, it is very likely that the cannabis sector will continue to thrive in the years to come. Some of the most promising marijuana stocks took a hammering at the stock market last year and now trade in marijuana penny stock territory.

High Tide (NASDAQ:HITI) is a leading cannabis retail company with a strong international presence. The company operates in Canada, Europe, the United States, and other countries worldwide. It’s been on a tear lately, thanks partly to its strong focus on building up its THC and CBD brands. This has helped to diversify the company’s revenue stream immensely, and we believe it should continue to pay off in the future. Moreover, the firm has been delivering double-digit growth across its top line over the past several quarters, a testament to its superior execution.
The company has already built up strong brand equity and, with its active merger and acquisitions policy, expects to close out the year with at least 150 retail locations in Canada. While it is mainly focused on Ontario at the moment, it is also looking to enter the British Columbian market in the near future. This expansion should help to drive even more growth for High Tide making it a stock worth watching closely.
