Top Cannabis ETFs And Investing In The Industry
Are you looking for the best marijuana stocks to buy in 2022? In March many leading cannabis companies are reporting earnings that are showing strong revenue growth for 2021. Although top pot stocks began the year dropping to new lows there could be some future catalysts for the sector in 2022. One of those catalysts could be cannabis banking and federal reform later this year. With new attempts by the House and Senate to pass both measures either one could cause an uptrend with cannabis stocks.
For many investors, it could be difficult to invest in pot stocks now. Because they are still considered illegal most US marijuana stocks trade on the OTC Markets. This makes it difficult for many new retail investors and larger investment companies to invest in them. At the present time, new retail investors using Robinhood Markets, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOOD) and WeBull are unable to trade OTC stocks. This has left marijuana stocks with less exposure to new investors coming into the market.
But there are ways for these investors to establish positions in cannabis. In general, marijuana ETFs serve as a vehicle for cannabis investors to get broader exposure to the cannabis sector. An exchange-traded fund is an investment that is like a mutual fund. In general, the cannabis ETF will track a particular index, sector, commodity, or other asset and trades on the stock exchange like a regular stock.

Looking into ETFs holdings and assets can help you find the ones that are invested in the pot stocks you want to buy.
