Risks: High
The risks of investing in any cannabis or hemp company are currently high given the newness of the market. The risks of investing in this company are very high due to the limited news the company puts out and the long-term nature of its corporate mission.

Recommendation: Weak
Weed Inc’s goal is to develop cannabis-derived drugs to treat specific diseases, which could include epilepsy, chronic pain, Crohn’s disease, PTSD and pediatric brain cancer, among others.

Unfortunately, management puts out very little information on the company upon which to know exactly what they are doing, and what their progress is. Based on their last press releases they have two main efforts underway: R&D in Colorado, and hemp cultivation in New York.

In an older press release, dated March 2018, they announced that they had bought 4 acres in La Veta, CO on which to build their research facility, through their subsidiary, Sangre Agrotech. It reported that Sangre is on a 5-year, $15 million research plan to map the genome of several varieties of cannabis and to develop patented cannabis-derived drugs for specific diseases.

Weed Inc claims that Sangre has certain advantages, which, along with its talented personnel, will allow it “to accomplish its goals in months, rather than years.”

These advantages include The use of next-generation sequencing instruments that are currently restricted to a few key “decision-maker” laboratories and the use of the most advanced bioinformatics data systems. It will use these to develop “genomic and phenotypic data to identify regions of the genome related to growth, synthesis of desired molecules, and drought and pest resistance.” They will eventually use this to breed new cultivars with desired traits. This will enable them to produce new seed stocks, clones, and intellectual property of great value to the company and investors.

This sounds like an exciting goal, but one that could take a long time (years not months)) and a lot of money, since research is expensive. One thing is for sure, they have no revenues and are burning through cash likes it’s water.

Weed Inc’s goals sound potentially promising. However, as mentioned, management has failed to issue updates on company progress or any news in the past year.

This has spooked investors, and the company shares have lost >95% of their value over the last two years, dropping from $5.55 on May 1, 2018, to $0.30 now.

This lack of public transparency is flagrantly bad management for all sorts of reasons, including but not limited to the fact that we believe the company needs money to continue their progress. With no products and no revenue yet, they have spent (lost) $30 million over the past 20 months.

This kind of random volatility is what investors can expect from this kind of small company stock with a limited volume of stock trading.

From a fundamental analysis POV, we do not recommend investors get involved until there is a lot more transparency about what is going on. We do not feel comfortable about the management.

For those of you who also like to use technical analysis, we recommend you consult Cannin’s technical analysis of this stock (see below). It is possible that after a year of falling stock value, investors feel the stock has hit bottom and could, in the short term, hold out hope for a profitable bounce.
