Within the marijuana stock market, there seem to be two options when it comes to investing. For starters, some investors decide to put their money into the largest companies in the industry. While this may be a good strategy, often times it can deny the large potential that lies with the smaller companies in the industry.
When we say small, we mean anything that is mid to small market capitalization, which generally goes for companies that are not in the top ten of the industry. A large majority of these businesses would still be defined as quite large if not for the guys at the top, but regardless, they offer varying types of value to different investors.
Next Green Wave (NXGWF) (NGW) is one of the primary vertically integrated producers of marijuana based out of the U.S. While their headquarters are to the North in Canada, the company has its operations centrally located in the Californian market in a place known as Coalinga. With no coincidence, Coalinga happens to be centrally located between Los Angeles and San Francisco which are two of the largest marijuana markets inside the largest statewide marijuana market in the world.
Interestingly enough, Next Green Wave’s choice to remain completely vertically integrated is one that has proven two benefits for the company. The first of those benefits is the fact that vertical integration allows for a high amount of control on the product. Since the goal of Next Green Wave is to produce extremely high-quality cannabis, this lends itself to their benefit completely.
Additionally, Next Green Wave’s vertical business model allows for much higher margins than their competitors. With no middlemen in the way, Next Green Wave is able to have their hand in every aspect of the production of their cannabis. This has led to a large competitive advantage for the company and continues to attract more and more investors. With a series of various planned acquisitions in the future for Next Green Wave, investors should continue to watch the company as they move into the future of the industry.
MedMen Enterprises (NASDAQOTH:MMNFF) is considered to be one of the larger players in the industry. Currently, they have a market cap just north of around $1.5 billion which makes them the leading retailer of cannabis in the whole of the U.S. market. The company has stated that they currently have as much as 5.3% of the retail cannabis market in California which as stated earlier, is one of the largest marijuana markets in the world.
MedMen has also stated that they have large plans to continue growing in the near future. In one of the largest deals in the history of the industry, MedMen has stated that they are planning to acquire the company PharmaCann. This will allow them to have access to as much as 77 licenses for retail stores across 12 states in the U.S. Of course this is still in the works, but the potential does look like it is there for MedMen to continue its growth into the coming months.
