This week : CBD Stocks Creating Opportunities
May 2, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Cannabis Stocks News -- CBD Stocks Creating Opportunities – Established (USOTC: BCCI), (STG), (TSX: WEED), (ACRGF), (USOTC: RLTR), (CBMJ), and Newcomer (USOTC: VAPR) Lead the Charge
You would have to be living in isolation to have not picked up on the hottest marijuana derivative consumable and therapeutic center isolate CBD. CBD "Cannabidiol" is the non-psychoactive full spectrum derivative of the hemp and marijuana plant largely credited for the majority of the medical beneficial attributes associated with marijuana.
How best to take advantage of this phenomenon by investing in the companies that are, and ultimately will continue to lead the way shaping the future of widespread acceptance, and the adoption of CBD consumption.
If you had somehow avoided being aware that there are now numerous companies selling CBD products nationwide ranging from topical rubs to hamburgers, that all changed once one of our top picks for explosive returns Baristas Coffee Company, Inc. (OTCPK: BCCI) launched its new gourmet CBD infused coffee "EnrichaRoast CBD". Baristas broke the mainstream media ban on CBD products by becoming the first in history getting CBD advertisements seen at the stadium during the 2019 Superbowl, at the Grammys, and by NASCAR race fans. Baristas other products have also been seen nationally on NBA TV, NFL Monday Night Football, featured on Loudmouth News, and other mainstream media. Baristas sold out of its products but appears to be solving its inventory supply issues and has established several distributors and retail outlets. Although the Company has been quiet about its current marketing efforts as of late while addressing this, BCCI has a long history of finding their way into the mainstream media and in conversations amongst traders who have repeatedly been able to benefit from their investments. Things have settled down setting the stage for potential strong gains as soon as the silence is broken.
Following Baristas, just last week as a test Carls Jr. served a CBD-infused burger at one of its Denver locations for one day only: April 20, the unofficial holiday for cannabis enthusiasts. Making its own CBD history the limited-time offer solidified Carl's Jr. as the first national fast food chain to add CBD-infused food to its menu. The burger chain's Rocky Mountain High: Cheeseburger Delight features two beef patties, pickled jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, waffle fries — and about 5 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD extract in the burger chain's Santa Fe Sauce. In another nod to the marijuana holiday, the burger sold for $4.20.
Other notable national brands are paving the way such Heineken Brewing owned Lagunitas having launched Hi-Fi Hops, available in two versions — one with 10 mg of THC, and one with 5 mg of THC and 5 mg of CBD. The products are reportedly sold in California's cannabis dispensaries. As beer and other beverages are leaders in the explosiveness of CBD consumables, one must be aware of Constellation Brands (NYSE:STG) who produces beer, wine and liquor in several countries, and its Corona and Modelo beer brands are growing in the U.S., while competitors are suffering. Constellation, based in Victor, N.Y., agreed earlier this month to sell about 30 of its lower-priced wine and spirits brands to E. & J. Gallo Winery for $1.7 billion. Tapping into a fast-growing industry, Constellation now holds a 36.6% stake in Smiths Falls, Ontario-based Canopy Growth Corp. (CA: WEED) with warrants that enable it to increase its stake in the largest publicly traded U.S. or Canadian marijuana company to more than 50%. In addition, Canopy itself has been rumored to be negotiating a deal for the right to acquire Acreage Holdings (OTC:ACRGF) when or if the recreational use of marijuana becomes federally legal in the U.S.
Although the substantial amount of capital being invested in and by Constellation and Canopy Growth give investors a stronger sense of security than less capitalized public companies, the price to invest, overvalued market cap, and established market values do not lend these companies to the explosive returns that some lower priced, less leveraged, and yet to be widely known companies provide.
The emergence of CBD as a market differentiator and valid business opportunity has also led to the return of some brands being re-introduced as premium CBD products. VaporBrands Int. (OTCPK: VAPR) is currently virtually unknown having taken a hiatus after being one of the pioneers in the Vape movement returned to the forefront of the vape industry launching its top end CBD Vape cartridges available nationwide. The new product and marketing plan are due to VAPR signing a product development, branding, and marketing agreement with ReelTime Media (OTCPK: RLTR). In that agreement RLTR provides the development of marketing and branding, production of commercials, advertisement copy, and placements of all media as the Agency of Record. The first product is available now at www.vaporbrandsint.com is appropriately named "Tranquility". It contains only the highest-grade full spectrum CBD in a smooth Vape cartridge. The product does not contain any nicotine, or other addictive substances or drugs. "Tranquility" is intended to give the consumer an alternative to smoking while providing them with the calming effect of the specially formulated CBD blend.
It is important to note that ReelTime Media, whose capabilities are redefining how companies are evaluating and purchasing their TV, radio, print, and other new media, has had strong success recently with CBD coffee and other products sold by Baristas Coffee Company. RLTR does not provided media for cannabis companies but does provide back end support for Canna Broadcast Media (OTCPK:CBMJ) who specializes in getting mainstream media cleared promoting the cannabis sector including network TV, radio, and digital ads targeting cannabis consumers and companies. CBMJ also acquired "LoudMouth News" www.loudmouthnews.com which became the first and longest running syndicated terrestrial radio news program that focused on the news relating to the marijuana industry.
Although there is no guaranty that VaporBrands will enjoy the household awareness that Baristas has established, it is not a very big leap to conclude that based on recent activities that VAPR will benefit from its marketing that has just begun. This could lead to breakout value for those early investors who are not deterred by their lack of recent history and a growing shareholder base.
Regardless of if you are more risk adverse and want to participate in the industry by investing in the 1000 pound gorilla Constellation Brands and its related companies, or if you are looking for exponential returns from the lower priced companies gaining market share and consumer awareness such as Baristas, or VaporBrands, or even yet by hedging your bet investing into one of the companies that are profiting from CBD companies needing to gain awareness such as ReelTime or Canna Broadcast Media, CBD is here and there are opportunities for those who choose to participate.
