Interested in investing in cannabis? A few things you should know

If you’re new to the investing game, investing in cannabis is an uncertain area. Most of the companies are fairly new with no solid history to reference so how do you know where to put your money? So cannabis is a tricky place – even for seasoned investors.

Here are a few things you’ll want to know before you blow your ‘date night fund’ on getting into cannabis.

Questions to ask before you invest

  • What info can you request from a company prior to investing?
  • What are some questions should you be asking?
  • Is there a benefit of investing for a day versus long term?
  • Who sits on the company’s board of governors and how do you get that info?
  • What are some red flags to watch out for?
