Every week, I sit down and comb through your comments on the Startup Investor website. It’s so important to me to learn about each of you – your life, your dreams, and how you’re putting your angel investing knowledge to work.

But I also do it as a form of “market research.” I want to make sure that I’m covering the topics that are most important to you. And one of the most common requests I’ve seen so far is for more information about cannabis stocks.

Now, I’m not normally a big stock market guy. I prefer to deal in equity, as I’m sure you know by now. But the cannabis industry is a little different, and here’s why: Silicon Valley’s startup culture is woven right into the fabric of all things cannabis.

Not only did some of the best angel investors around make their fortunes investing in early-stage cannabis companies… but they’re starting to branch out into cannabis technology, too. There are startups out there working to disrupt every part of the industry, from growing and harvesting to inventory management and more.

And don’t forget that while many successful cannabis companies have already gone public, there are dozens more lining up to do the same.

Take Flowhub, a tiny startup that provides cannabis shops with software solutions to manage inventory and sales. Just last week, Flowhub landed $23 million in funding from prominent tech investors.

Or Fyllo, a Chicago-based company that builds compliant digital ads for cannabis brands and recently secured more than $16 million in its seed round.

For many of these mature cannabis startups, it’s too late for everyday angel investors to buy shares pre-IPO. But that doesn’t mean it’s too late to jump in and turn a nice profit.

The best part is that if you know where to look, you can bank serious gains in just a few weeks – and sometimes in just a few days.

Willow Biosciences, a research and development company working with cannabinoids, went public earlier this year, kicking back 500% returns on its very first day of trading.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Other companies have produced returns upwards of 50,000% on the public markets.

Why is this happening so fast, while other industries are doing business as usual? It’s pretty simple: cannabis is a completely new ecosystem, and with its creation comes a whole new world of opportunities in virtually every field.

Think about it this way. When the Internet was invented, it wasn’t just a few companies that popped up to capitalize. Brand new industries propagated like wildfire – digital marketing, domain hosting, ecommerce platforms, instant messaging, search engines, email… I could list a thousand things and still I’d have barely scratched the surface.

Cannabis is the same way. As more and more states push for decriminalization and legalization, new ways to profit are opening up everywhere you look. The key is knowing when the biggest players are about to go public – and exactly when to buy in to maximize your chance at a life-changing payout.

The cannabis industry is expected to be worth $66 billion by 2026. If you have access to the right information as this market explodes, you could be leaps and bounds ahead of everyday investors – and take home life-changing windfalls in the process.

  1. For all the people who are saying, “I want to learn how to invest in…
    You really don’t want to learn how to do anything at all! You want to get rich using as little resources as possible and I don’t mean money! I’m talking about using your brain! Neil has good educational videos but, apparently, you all do not even want to read; or even sit back and watch the videos! There are ebooks all over the place on the subject of investing and it is a large arena! So, go to the library and look for books on the type of investing you want to try! Why would anyone want to have a conversation with you when you won’t even learn the language! Did this sound like a get rich ‘scheme’ to you? You should know, there’s no such thing! Not legally, anyway. So, stop thinking that you don’t have to do any work on this,; take some initiative or you won’t ever be a knowledgeable investor and you won’t even be able to network or have an interesting conversation. No one wants to spoon feed you and answer questions that you can google! Do some research yourself, in general, learn as much as you can or have time for because everyone’s time is precious. There, it’s out! The secret is out! Now go follow up with your own brains! Sheesh! Look up the words you don’t understand, unless you want to share your money with me, 60/40 … then I will tell you my take… and you put up the money and when we win, I get 60% because I read information, thought about it and compared deals, I get at least 60% and a lot more knowledge than you. That’s why I won’t need you, or want you around, wasting my time with ignorant questions… ok, rant over…
    Thank you for allowing me to get that out!
