As the market begins to rally are you looking for top marijuana stocks to invest in for 2022?

This is partly due to the delays in Congress with passing some form of federal marijuana legalization and reform. Although this week there has been some upward momentum with pot stocks, they are still trading at much lower levels than we saw at the beginning of the year. Although cannabis stocks are trading much lower in the market these same companies have delivered strong earnings in 2021. In addition, leading cannabis companies have expanded across the US this year as new states legalize cannabis use.
One area that is positioned to grow alongside the cannabis market is ancillary cannabis companies. Ancillary cannabis companies are those companies that support the cannabis industry without touching the actual plant. As the US continues to see growth on the state level ancillary companies that supply hydroponics supplies and lighting equipment to the cannabis industry have an opportunity to see significant growth.
