Investing in Nevada Cannabis
How to Profit from Pleasure and Sin
It wasn’t the most impressive cannabis dispensary I’ve ever seen.
Just a few miles off the strip in Las Vegas, I visited my first dispensary in Nevada.
The options weren’t quite as abundant as what you might find in Colorado or California, but there was still plenty to choose from.
There was plenty of dried flower, a small assortment of edibles, and a few other standard items one might find in a store that sells pot.
Now, in all fairness, my visit to that dispensary came just a couple of weeks after Nevada legalized recreational cannabis. At that time, they were still having a hard time meeting demand. But a lot has changed since then.
In fact, just last week we learned that more cannabis was sold in Nevada on its initial rollout than in Oregon and Colorado.
For the first month of legalization, Nevada dispensaries sold more than $27 million worth of cannabis. To put that in perspective, on Oregon’s rollout, the Beaver State did $14 million, and Colorado did $3.8 million on its rollout.
By the way, Colorado does about $100 million a month now in cannabis sales.
Make no mistake; while Nevada is not the biggest cannabis market, it is one of the most lucrative. This is mostly due to tourists who spend most of their time in the Silver State looking for pleasure and sin.
But whatever the reason, those who have exposure to the Nevada cannabis market are in the right spot.
I’ve actually written about the Nevada cannabis market in the past.
Mostly before the state legalized, and before the state pulled in nearly $30 million in sales in just one month — which, by the way, is peanuts compared to what the state will ultimately pull in.
According to state officials, legal cannabis sales should end up generating about $120 million over the next two years. I think that’s a conservative estimate.
The bottom line is that there are few places more suited for selling recreational cannabis. And there are several public companies with exposure to this market. These include but are not limited to Cannabis Sativa (OTCBB: CBDS), Terra Tech Corp. (OTCBB: TRTC), and the Canadian Bioceutical Corporation (CSE: BCC)(OTCBB: CBICF).
Of those three, I would say BCC has the most lucrative footprint in Nevada, as it owns GreenMart of Nevada. This is a well-known licensed cultivation, production, and wholesale business in Las Vegas.
But rest assured, there will be more.
Get a Piece of the Action
While the Nevada cannabis business is booming, there is still no market more lucrative than the Canadian market.
You see, we are now less than one year away from full-scale adult-use legalization throughout the entire country of Canada. And already, these Canadian cannabis stocks are crushing it.

All Eyes on Canada
Of course, while the Canadian market is the most lucrative, there are other legal and soon-to-be-legal markets that you should also be keeping an eye on. These include but are not limited to:
- The Netherlands
Interestingly, Canada is the only country that’s actively exporting cannabis to some of these other countries where cannabis is legal.
Yes, there are opportunities all over the world, but Canada is quickly becoming the main hub for the global cannabis market. And that’s why you absolutely should have some exposure to the Canadian cannabis market.
