Hemp and Medical Marijuana, or “Pot” stocks as they are affectionately named, have been one of the most talked about subjects this year.
In fact, some of these stocks have seen gains of up to 200% almost overnight, with some as high as 1,700% in the short-term.
And who says you can’t make great money in Penny Stocks? We’ll save that discussion for another article…
But, back to the Hemp and Medical Marijuana craze.
As with any hot topic, hot tip, hot stock, or hot anything that skyrockets and shows that we live in a dynamic world where things change rapidly sometimes good and sometimes not so good, and challenges an old way of thinking, there are always the gloom and doomers who climb out of the woodwork just to throw cold water on the party and make their claim that they, and they alone, have all the answers.
They claim to know everything about the market, have seen this before, wouldn’t invest in these stocks, and of course try to scare everyone away as they just have to be “right” all the time. You’d think they’d all be billionaires but usually, they are just naysayers or journalists.
On the other hand, there are the proponents of Hemp and Medical Marijuana stocks who think that every single stock that even remotely has anything to do with Medical Marijuana will blast off and create huge profits no matter what.
So, who’s right and how can you find the right companies to invest in whether short or long term?
It all started in November 2012 when the states of Colorado and Washington approved legislation to legalize both the medical and recreational use of marijuana.
“In the last year, the rise of the cannabis industry went from an interesting cocktail conversation to being taken seriously as the fastest growing industry in America,” Troy Dayton, CEO of The ArcView Group.
Dayton of the Arc View Group, publisher of the third edition of the State of Legal Marijuana Markets, said in the executive summary of the report. “At this point, it’s hard to imagine that any serious businessperson who is paying attention hasn’t spent some time thinking about the possibilities in this market.”
The report projects a marijuana industry that could be more valuable than the entire organic food industry — that is if the legalization trend continues to the point that all 50 states legalize recreational marijuana.
The total market value of all states legalizing marijuana would top $36.8 billion — more than $3 billion larger than the organic food industry.
“These are exciting times,” Dayton said in the executive summary, “and new millionaires and possibly billionaires are about to be made, while simultaneously society will become safer and freer.”
At present, there are 26 states and the District of Columbia that have legalized Marijuana in some form. Three additional states will soon join them after passing Measures on the November ballot legalizing the use of medical marijuana.
Seven states and the District of Columbia have adopted more expansive laws legalizing marijuana for recreational use. In November, California, Massachusetts and Nevada all passed measures legalizing recreational marijuana.
California’s Proposition 64 measure allows adults 21 and older, to now possess up to one ounce of marijuana and grow up to six plants in their homes. And the stock world is getting a taste of what legal marijuana and its ancillary businesses can generate… and the market loves it.
Many, many individuals have profited from these stocks with numerous days closing with near 100% gains. That’s just a fact and it’s undeniable.
Here are a few more facts:
- Marijuana and Hemp are the largest cash crop in the world, even before any legalization took place.
- There is a huge demand for Hemp and Medical Marijuana that is almost insatiable.
- The Hemp and medical marijuana industry is still virtually an untapped market… with lots of room for new and innovative companies that could produce huge gains for investors.
So, it’s an undeniable fact that many Pot stocks have done incredibly well this year and that many investors have profited greatly, and very quickly. Regardless of what some pundits may say.
The question now is which of these companies have the best potential to stick around and continue to offer these opportunities and payoffs?
Because our job at Best Marijuana Stock is to present the facts and make suggestions about choices and options that consumers have and to help our readers to succeed in all aspects of their lives, we put together a well-researched checklist and offer our suggestions.
Here is what we would look for in a “Pot” stock and why, and we’ll even name a few companies we think you can profit very well from:
- Does the company currently have a popular product, or products that they sell and do they create an increasing revenue stream?
- Does the company have consistent trading volume? Is there a strong market for the stock?
- Does the company have a low market cap or trade at a low multiple of revenues?
- Does the company have solid share structure?
- Does the company market itself well and does it have the management team to succeed?
- Does the company have the vision, ambition, and ability to carry out its stated goals?
Of many publicly traded companies in the industry, only one investment opportunity garnered five stars.
5 MEDICAL CANNABIS STOCKS TO WATCH
With today’s positive economic outlook for the industry and the naturally built-in customer base for products, a promising company entering the market should be taken seriously.
When we look at the profile above it is our belief that the companies that meet these criteria will be companies that should be on your radar or your “watch” list now.
In fact, we offer a few below that we have looked into extensively, have contacted, and in some cases even purchased products from. We have also reviewed thoroughly what is being reported about these companies and even rate them for you:
#1.) Ubiquitech Software Corp. (UBQU)
#2.) Terra Tech Corp. (TRTC)
#2.) Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc. (RMHB)
#4.) Medical Marijuana Inc. (MJNA)
#5.) Cannagrow Holdings, Inc. (CGRW)
#1.) Ubiquitech Software Corp. OTC:UBQU
Ubiquitech Software Corp. and its subsidiary HempLife Today / www.HempLifeToday.com (Symbol: UBQU). This company has an amazing concept, name, and vision.
The Company focuses on the exciting and dynamic new thinking in the world today that recognizes the important health and life enriching enhancement that CBD Oil from the Hemp plant can bring. HempLifeToday.com™ has developed two award-winning lines of CannazALL™ CBD Oil.
CBD – or “cannabidiol” to the medical community is the game-changing component in OTC:UBQU subsidiary company HempLife Today’s proprietary CannazALL™ products. CBD oil is simply the most exciting development currently coming out of the Hemp and related products industry.
It is considered to be a ‘miracle’ supplement for a wide range of common ailments such as seizures, anxieties, arthritis, sleep disorders, pain, and even cancer.
And while hemp produces the exact same Cannabinoid molecules as its sister plant, hemp does not produce any psycho-actives, meaning users will NOT get “high”.
CBD may be the key to unlocking the cure to many different ailments.

The Company’s products are becoming a more widely accepted form of therapy, and this education of the public is showing an exponential growth in awareness of these products.
In fact, it is estimated that less than 5% of the general public is even aware of what CBD Oil is, what it does. The Company has a visionary management team with strong marketing skills.
UBQU has 185,308,000 shares outstanding (www.otcmarkets.com) and trades around $.03 with a current market cap of approximately $3,750,000. The Company reported $3,493,000 in revenues for the most recent fiscal year. Despite spending heavily to begin a sales ramp-up, UBQU earned a profit $334,000 versus only $39,000 for the prior year period.
The Company is projecting a 55% increase in revenues to $5,450,000 in the current fiscal year. These are exceptionally good numbers for a company that is just getting started.
Other companies in burgeoning, high-growth sectors trade for 10 to 50 times revenues or more. At just 10x expected year-end sales, UBQU shares would trade for nearly $.30 per share, approximately a -15-fold increase from their current value.
#2.) Terra Tech Corp. OTC:TRTC
Terra Tech Corp. / www.terratechcorp.com (Symbol: TRTC). Terra Tech Corp. operates through multiple subsidiary businesses including: Blum, IVXX Inc., Edible Gardens, MediFarm LLC and GrowOp Technology.
Blum’s retail medical cannabis facilities focus on providing the highest quality medical cannabis to patients who are looking for alternative treatments for their chronic medical conditions.
Blum offers a broad selection of medical cannabis products including; flowers, concentrates and edibles through its Oakland, CA and multiple Nevada locations.

Want to Invest?
TRTC has just shy of 573,000,000 shares outstanding (www.otcmarkets.com) and trades around $.27 per share with a current market cap of $154,710,000. The Company reported $18,198,441 in revenues for the most recent nine months versus $7,805,994 a year ago – a significant increase.
However, the Company has a low gross margin on its products, has high administrative expenses and recorded a loss for the period of ($14,648,061). TRTC has made significant sales gains, but needs to get its cost structure in line. Continued improvements in revenues and cost reductions could lead to TRTC trading at a higher multiple of sales.
#3.) Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc OTC:RMHB
Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc. / www.rockymountainhighbrands.com(Symbol: RMHB). is a Dallas-based consumer goods brand development company that specializes in the development, manufacture, marketing, and distribution of high quality, health conscious, hemp-infused food and beverage products.

Want to Invest?
RMHB has 623,097,784 shares outstanding (www.otcmarkets.com) and trades for around $.0388 per share with a current market cap of about $23,677,000.
The Company reported revenues of $1,075,000 for the year ended June 30, 2016, and an operating loss of ($3,709,000) for the period versus $490,000 in revenues for the year-earlier period and an operating loss of ($4,074,000).
RMHB is starting to see ramped-up sales growth but the high share count means that it already has a significant market capitalization for a company its size. Continued rapid sales growth could lead to profits and share appreciation for RMHB.
#4.) Medical Marijuana Inc. OTC:MJNA
Medical Marijuana Inc. / www.medicalmarijuanainc.com (Symbol: MJNA) is comprised of a portfolio of products, services, technology, and businesses solely focused on the cannabis and hemp industries.
These products range from patented and proprietary based cannabinoid products to seed and stalk or isolated high-value extracts specifically manufactured and formulated for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmeceutical industries.

Want to Invest?
MJNA has 3,025,841,854 shares outstanding (www.otcmarkets.com) and trades at $.125 per share with a current market cap of $378,230,231. The Company reported $2,188,671 in revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2016 versus $1,845,575 in the year ago period. MJNA recorded a loss of ($4,286,818) for the period this year and ($7,300,305) for the same period last year.
Losses were primarily the result of investment write-downs, financing, and litigation. MJNA has a heavily credentialed management and advisory team, but seems to lack focus by trying to dip its hand in too many aspects of the industry. With an already staggering market-cap, MJNA likely needs to get a handle on its expenses before it can see valuation improvement.
#5.) CannaGrow Holdings, Inc. OTC:CGRW
Cannagrow Holdings, Inc. /www.cannagrowholdings.com(Symbol: CGRW) has entered the Medical/Recreational Cannabis Industry as a Lessor, Liaison, and Consultant to licensed Growers providing them with turnkey Growing Facilities in the State of Colorado. The Company intends to expand this business model within this industry as business opportunities evolve.
CannaGrow Holdings, Inc. has stated that it “does not and will not, until such time as Federal law allows, grow, harvest, distribute or sell marijuana or any substance that violate the laws of the United States of America.”
CGRW’s model is as a service and facilities provider to others in the industry, rather than as a grower or seller of cannabis products.
Want to Invest?
CGRW has 102,073,434 shares outstanding (www.otcmarkets.com) and trades at $1.45 per share with a current market cap of $148,006,480. The Company reported only $30,000 in revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, and $26,760 for the prior year period – both insignificant numbers.
The net losses were ($257,591) and ($261,111 before a gain on debt relief) respectively. While the Company has just recently begun operations in the sector, the market cap appears steep considering the lack of operations. CGRW will need to show major sales increases in order to sustain its current valuation.
The Verdict: Ubquitech Software Corp. (UBQU) takes the top spot.
UBQU with its HempLife Today division and CannazALL™ brand offers investors the greatest potential for significant gains. UBQU’s increasing brand recognition, expanding product offerings, growing revenues, with a corresponding handle on expenses, and strong management team with a clear vision make it stand out above the rest.
The added benefit of consistent trading volume and an extremely low relative market valuation make UBQU a 5 Star Stock.
