What are the 3 Top Hemp Stocks for 2021?
Top Hemp Stock #1: GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH)
|Symbol||Name||Last Price||Change||% Change|
GW Pharma (NASDAQ: GWPH) is a biotech player and not a core cannabis company but it finds a mention in this list because of its flagship medicine, Epidiolex, which is derived from CBD. This medicine has had huge success in the treatment of epileptic seizures due to two rare syndromes in early childhood.
Epidolex has been well-received by the patients and the pharmaceutical industry. Epidiolex is the single-most factor driving the growth of GW Pharmaceuticals. The company is still unprofitable but one with immense growth potential.
GW Pharma has a robust balance sheet with a cash balance of more than $500 million. This depicts its inherent strength in being unperturbed in the face of the pandemic. It also highlights that the company has adequate finance to fuel further R&D and its growth opportunities.
The COVID-19 crisis did not have a significant impact on most of the medical marijuana companies, because they were deemed as an essential service. The unique proposition of GW Pharma is its affordable drugs and limited competition in this segment. With more treatments and clinical trials underway, GW Pharmaceuticals is surely a smart stock pick in the medical cannabis category and we believe it’s one of the top 3 hemp stocks to watch in 2021.
Top Hemp Stock #2: Tilray (TLRY)
|Symbol||Name||Last Price||Change||% Change|
With various hemp-products in its quiver, Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY) is one of the most notable cannabis stocks which will make a mark in 2020 and beyond. After debuting in the U.S. markets at $17 per share, the company was quick enough to shoot past $300 per share, before plummeting to its record low of $2.43 in early 2020.
In a play to expand Tilray’s U.S. footprint, the company acquired Manitoba Harvest, which supplies over 70% of the hemp edibles nationwide. Its products are sold widely in about 13,500 retail shops in the U.S. including Costco and Walmart.
International expansion is the growth route for many cannabis companies and Tilray is no exception. The hemp stock exports its medicinal products to more than 13 international markets including Germany and Portugal and industry experts believe that this number is all set to double in the next few years. Because of this strong trajectory, we believe Tilray is one of the top 3 hemp stocks to watch in 2021.
Top Hemp Stock #3: HempFusion Wellness (CBDHF)
|Symbol||Name||Last Price||Change||% Change|
HempFusion, Inc. is a CBD health and wellness company with both a health and regulatory background. Cannin.com recommended HempFusion ahead of its IPO back January and the stock is up 300%.
HempFusion Wellness has over 46 SKUs with many more in development. The company’s CEO’s background as a product formator in the dietary supplement industry should prove to be invaluable.
Their strong regulatory experience also will come in handy with OTC listed products as they can make health claims – something all their competitors cannot do, and they understand how to play federally with their self-affirmed GRAS (generally regarded as safe) designations to the FDA. The market for HempFusion’s brand range of Probulin probiotics and digestive enzymes is estimated to be worth $76.7 billion by 2027 alone.
Scaling is the name of the game here as their direct competitors (Charlotte’s Web and CV Sciences) already have market caps over $400 million. If they can grow wisely and get their strongly branded products in more and more stores in the USA, Europe, and Latin America, then they should see revenues triple or more.
Keep a close eye on HempFusion and watch for prices to continue to climb. If you want to invest in the CBD industry, we’d strongly recommend considering a position in HempFusion (OTC:CBDHF). See our comprehensive fundamental analysis of HempFusion here.
