Cannabis stocks have a huge event directly on the horizon. In fact, it's the most important event of the last 12 months and I expect it to send a certain group of cannabis stocks soaring.
On January 1 California will become the latest - and largest US state - to legalize recreational cannabis.
This is easily the most important event in the cannabis sector in the last 12 months. And I expect it to be a huge catalyst for cannabis stocks for two reasons.
1. Billions In New Sales:
California is already the largest cannabis market in the world - by a long shot. Its legal and illegal cannabis market did around $8 billion in sales in 2016 - with 75% of that from illegal sales. Recreational is expected to quickly chip into illegal sales and grow into a $4 billion annual market within a few years, from basically $0 today. That is a potential revenue and profit windfall for cannabis companies ready to capitalize. I expect this to be a strong tailwind for US cannabis stocks in general and particularly ones operating in California's high -growth market.

Opioid abuse has quickly grown into a major global epidemic.
While opioids can be great for pain relief, the down side is that they are highly addictive. Recent data shows that opioid abuse and addiction is killing tens of thousands of people every year in just the United States.
Overdose deaths caused by prescription opioids have quadrupled since 1999. From 1999 to 2015, more than 183,000 people have died in the U.S. from overdoses related to prescription opioids.
This is an alarming trend that has both patients and health care professionals asking - are we capable of providing a better alternative?
According to a young biotech located Australia the answer is yes - and the solution comes in the form of cannabis.
If this young cannabis biotech is correct, not only will patients benefit, early shareholders will be rewarded with huge gains.

Israel has long been a powerhouse in medical innovation.
The tiny country of 8.5 million has made some of the most important contributions to the global medical field in the last 50 years.
Today, Israel is unleashing its innovative medical industry on the cannabis industry.
According to a report from Reuters, there are more than 120 clinical cannabis trials in Israel at the beginning of 2017, more than any other country.
Foreign countries and firms are eager to license Israel cannabis medical patents. In the last year outside countries and companies have invested $100 million to license Israeli medical cannabis patents.
That number is expected to grow to more than $1 billion in the next two years - an increase of 1,000%.
Israel is winning in the global cannabis industry for two reasons. Continue reading "This Little-Known Israeli Biotech Is Up 468% In 2017"
