The U.S. marijuana market has progressed more than any other, but it’s a big world of opportunity out there…
The rolling back of 80 years of marijuana prohibition around the globe is nothing short of a revolution.
And the National Institute for Cannabis Investors sits front and center, identifying the best ways to profit from the global cannabis boom.
We launched just last October, and look at what we’ve accomplished so far.
Over the course of six months, founding members were able to book a 90% profit in Curaleaf Holdings Inc. (CSE: CURA, OTC: CURLF), a company that now brings in more revenue from selling cannabis than any other company on the planet.
At the time I made the recommendation, that wasn’t anywhere close to being the case.
In just five months, NICI members made 118% gains on their money by following my recommendation to buy the one company carving out the biggest share of the burgeoning CBD market.
Companies like these drive the cannabis revolution forward in the U.S.
An International Cannabis Advantage
Back in May, I talked about the lead established by Canadian licensed producers in European cannabis markets.
Because of the legal clarity in Canada, Canadian cannabis firms have the leeway to build a portfolio of global assets. Using this legal head start, and big balance sheets flush with cash, these companies have worked quickly to acquire assets throughout Europe.
Cannabis legalization continues advancing in Europe, though at a slower pace than in the U.S. It’s virtually all medical-use only, though tiny Luxembourg has confirmed it will legalize recreational use.
And you can’t count the Netherlands, because even though you can buy pot in coffee shops, it’s still illegal for the coffee shop owners to buy their own supply of marijuana. These conflicting laws create an odd contradiction – coffee shops must buy marijuana illegally, but once they have it, any sales are legal. The truth is, police have historically turned a blind eye towards these back-door deals.
But the Dutch are rolling out a legal experiment in 10 cities where nationally approved growers can cultivate cannabis legally to supply coffee shop owners. In these cities, the cops will crackdown on black-market sales to coffee shop owners.
Consider this a tentative step in the right direction.
But these two companies aren’t waiting for the dominoes to fall.

An Edge on Cannabis Exports
Among the Canadian companies making moves in Europe is MPX International Corp. (CSE: MPXI, OTC: MPXOF). It just acquired a cannabis company based in Malta that gives them the ability to produce cannabis oils and cannabis derivative products, plus the ability to distribute regulated medical cannabis in Europe and Africa.
And TerrAscend Corp. (CSE: TER, OTC: TRSSF) is another Canadian L.P. making moves internationally. I consider TerrAscend one of the premier operators in both the U.S. and Canada. It controls assets that give it profitable operations at every step in the cannabis vertical, from cultivation to pharmaceuticals to hemp products. It is also the only cannabis company licensed to sell cannabis in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
It recently completed its first international shipment of dry cannabis to Germany, the biggest medical-market in Europe.
You can read more about our thoughts on TerrAscend, and see our ranking system for more than 160 cannabis stocks after becoming a Lifetime Member. Current NICILytics Lifetime Members can access that report right here.
These and a handful of other cannabis companies use their legal clarity and coffers full of cash to build out a global footprint.
But the stocks of these international plays are priced in a way that barely reflects any share of the global market at all. The way they are trading, it would seem the equity markets only focus lies on the U.S. – short sighted, to say the least.
But for those in the right international plays, the global cannabis market represents a $4 trillion opportunity to own those cannabis companies that will catalyze the entire global cannabis market.

P.S. As cannabis legalization sweeps the globe, there’s no telling what the industry could hit in the next couple of years. That’s why more and more companies are jumping into the arena on an almost daily basis… but how can you tell which companies are in it for the long haul? That’s where the experts at The Institute come in – you see, we’ve taken the time to thoroughly analyze over 190 cannabis companies so you don’t have to. Our proprietary NICILytics database has everything you need to know on these companies to make an informed investment decision. Learn how you can get immediate access here.
