The industry is composed of cultivators and packagers of cannabis plants, dispensaries for medical and recreational marijuana, plus companies that use cannabis byproducts called CBDs, which are non-psychoactive derivatives of cannabis and can be used for a variety of purposes such as inflammation, chronic pain, and depression.
It also includes the production of hemp, which can be used to make fabrics and textiles, as well as health food and body care products.
And it all makes for big business. The marijuana industry is expected to reach $72 billion by 2030, according to Forbes—that’s more than the GDP of Costa Rica in 2022.
Investors in the U.S interested in adding cannabis to their portfolios have a few options. They can purchase shares of stock in cannabis-related companies that are publicly-traded on an exchange.
Another option is to purchase shares of a fund, which offers exposure to many companies leading the way in this growing sector.
Investing in Cannabis: Single stocks
A single stock is just that, a share of ownership of a company. For example, investors can purchase shares of stock in companies in the Legal Marijuana industry.
Investing in Legal Cannabis: Exchange-traded funds
Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are a basket of investments bundled into a fund that's traded on an exchange like the Nasdaq or NYSE.
That fund owns the stocks within it and generally tracks an index – or group of investments that represent part of an industry or investment theme. For more info on ETFs, click here.

Stash is built for long-term investing, not day-trading, so all of our market transactions execute during four trading windows each weekday. (Note: Availability of trading windows is dependent on market conditions and may be subject to limitations.)
Investing can be a critical part of building wealth. As time passes, inflation can eat away at the value of your saved cash—making it worth less over the years. On the other hand, the average annual return of the S&P 500 has been around 8%, historically. Even if it’s just $1 at a time, it’s important to start investing as soon as possible so you can maximize your money’s growth potential and take advantage of compound returns over the years.
Stash is 100 percent legit. From investments made to cash set aside, you can feel confident in the security of your money.
While such registration does not imply a certain level of skill, it does require us to follow federal regulations that protect you, the investor. By law, we must provide investment advice that is in the best interest of our client.
