It’s been a big week for Cannabis-related stocks, and the Cannabis industry, as Canada decided to formally legalize the recreational use of marijuana.  In addition, Cannabis stocks have soared nearly 10% since the summer.

There is indeed a rising tide of interested investors and traders, looking to take advantage of the pot stock boom.  Most of the stocks garnering interest are listed in Canada, but there are certainly a few cross-listed on U.S exchanges.

What’s particularly fascinating is that millennials are stepping up to eagerly participate in the market. Whether the interest is for medicinal or recreational purposes, the estimated market is about 50 million people.

Further to this interest, there’s a growing interest in the sector from larger corporations including major biotech players.

While the interest is there, the regulatory environment and legal liabilities appear to be the biggest threat to these stocks and the sector at large. Regardless of these concerns, the market is ripe for opportunities for eager investors and traders that are looking to take advantage of trading marijuana stocks.

Here are a few Cannabis stocks that we find interesting:
