The 10 Best Marijuana Stocks to Buy in 2019

Although marijuana stocks have suffered sharp losses recently, the overall industry is only growing in prominence.

Diego Pellicer Worldwide (DPWW)

We’ve arrived at the end of our journey regarding marijuana stocks to buy in 2019. In keeping with my loose tradition, I like to throw in an extremely speculative name. And don’t roll your eyes at me: you know you want to know!

The following idea comes from an InvestorPlace reader named Anthony. He asked my opinion regarding Diego Pellicer Worldwide (OTCMKTS:DPWW). My answer to him is the same one I’m giving to you, which is that DPWW stock is extremely risky. Aside from its distressingly low trading volume and market capitalization, Diego Pellicer lacks financial strength to convincingly pull off its licensing and royalties business model.

However, I’m intrigued with its premium branding business. Not that I would know, but Diego Pellicer specializes in high-class cannabis products. As companies like Origin House and Medmen have proven, cannabis users eschew quantity for quality. That could lead to a surprising turnaround for DPWW stock.

Or you can lose every cent that you put in.

Diego Pellicer Annual Sales and National Cannabis Accolades

Diego Pellicer Annual Sales and National Cannabis Accolades

By ME Staff -December 11, 2018

This year’s Cannabis market has been good for Diego Pellicer Worldwide Inc (OTCMKTS:DPWW). The company recently announced a 150% increase in annual sales for the fiscal year ending December 01 2018.

Projected Cannabis Market

Apparently the cannabis wing for the Colarado company, is having a great run in the growing US cannabis market even before the market fully opens up nationally. Statistics by the New Frontier Data valued the US cannabis market at $8.3 billion in 2017. However, as the nation gears to decriminalizing cannabis use, the marketed is estimated to triple at a compounded annual rate of 14.7% to about $25 billion in 2025.

Companies are in a rush to partake in the lucrative sector setting up multiple dispensaries and retail outlets.

Designing for the New Culture of Cannabis

Designing for the New Culture of Cannabis

Say goodbye to drab, institutional interiors and trippy accoutrements—top-tier designers are making the face of marijuana more beautiful, smart, and inviting

Since California voters passed a proposition to allow the use of medical marijuana in 1996, 30 more states and Washington, D.C., have followed suit. Of those, nine have also legalized it for recreational use. In October of this year, Canada became the second country to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide. (Uruguay did so in 2013.) And with it’s emergence from the shadows of the law, marijuana is getting a total makeover.

Canada cannabis legalisation: ‘We know the world is watching’

Canada cannabis legalisation: ‘We know the world is watching’

14 October 2018

Ron Throgmartin admits he is “not a marijuana smoker”, but as a businessman he sees an opportunity in commercial cannabis real estate.

He ran his own property firm for 20 years and is now chief executive of Diego Pellicer. The firm develops and leases property for marijuana businesses and has just opened its second US retail outlet with the help of designer Jill Savini, former creative director of the original Apple store.

Ron says he plans to expand into Canada, but he’s “cautious” and sees more earning potential in the larger, neighbouring US market.

“At one point the US will federally legalise cannabis and when that happens, Canada will become an afterthought.”

He also believes legalisation will eventually concentrate industry control into the hands of larger, probably tobacco corporations.

“Their model’s dying so if they don’t find something to transition to they’ll be in trouble.”

So unlike other firms, Ron says he’s in no rush to have weed legalised in the US at a national level.

“[I would like] more time for Diego Pellicer to become a bigger company so we can be a candidate for acquisition from bigger corporations who we can’t compete with.

“I’m always thinking about tomorrow and next year.”

Peek inside a Seattle cannabis tour

Peek inside a Seattle cannabis tour

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

There are monastic brewery adventures in Germany and Belgium, and winery tours from Napa Valley to Bordeaux. Welsh cheese treks and Vietnamese street food jaunts beckon the more adventurous. And now, there are cannabis tours, too.

In at least nine states and the District of Colombia, consenting adults over 21 can purchase marijuana for recreational use. (Finding a place to use it is another hurdle, but more on that later.) So the idea of a different sort of vacation was appealing.

Like many adventures these days, mine began with an internet search: “Seattle marijuana tours.”

Seattle’s entertaining Kush Tours popped up — a 3½-hour adventure for $150 plus an Amtrak train ride to get me there. They also offer advice on 420-friendly places to stay, such as the Bacon Mansion, a B&B on Capitol Hill, as well as hotels with smoke-friendly courtyards, if not smoke-friendly rooms. The Bacon Mansion is a convenient 15-minute walk from the new train line that runs from the airport to the University of Washington, with stops in the SoDo — south of downtown — neighborhood.

The tour rendezvous spot was Diego Pellicer, a high-end SoDo marijuana store that looks like a fancy jewelry design boutique, all glitzy glass and tiny sparkles on display. It was super fancy, with gold-wrapped “canagar” Cohiba-sized joints for easily more than a grand, if you really want to get decadent, but offerings for bargain shoppers, as well.

The brunch, the ear buds, the bi-coastal workwear…consume the city like a native New Yorker and get ready for cannabis luxe.
The high life

Cannabis oil products low in psychoactive THC are already popping up in clubs, coffee shops and new store MedMen – the ‘Starbucks of weed’– on Fifth Avenue, as the city gears up for legal change.
