Three Cannabis Stocks Cashing in on Canada's Supply Shortage

ACCESSWIRE - Posted 2 years ago

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / February 14, 2019 / Months after Canada legalized cannabis, the country is running low.

In fact, Aurora Cannabis Inc. CEO Terry Booth says he "loses sleep" over the industry's ability to supply the global market. "It will be at least five years until we have an oversupply situation," he said, as quoted by The Financial Post.

However, this is nothing new. Canada has been struggling with cannabis shortages since recreational cannabis was approved in October 2018. Provinces, which control the distribution and sales of cannabis just aren't seeing enough product from producers to meet demand.

That bottleneck is creating opportunity. In fact, with demand outpacing supply, many investors are watching cannabis stocks such as Blissco Cannabis Corp. (CNSX: BLIS) (OTCQB: HSTRF), Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED)(NYSE: CGC), and Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE: ACB).

Blissco Cannabis Corp. (BLIS)(HSTRF) is a Canadian wellness cannabis brand based in British Columbia and a multi-licensed cultivator, processor, and distributor of premium cannabis with sizable growth in store.

"This is an exciting time for Blissco as we ship more than 85,000 cannabis units in Canada over the next seven weeks," said Blissco CEO, Damian Kettlewell. "Blissco's team is committed to delivering innovative, quality assured full spectrum cannabis products and providing personal and informative client care. It is vital that we have the best team to make this vision a reality."

The company also just announced the addition of new Chief Technology Officer, Robin Killeen; Brand and Public Relations Director Jennifer Engele; and Marketing Manager Cesar Chung.

The company will release its third quarter financial report today with investors looking forward to a read on how it's done since Canada legalized recreational sales.
