Skepticism has been squashed and all apprehension eliminated. There’s no longer any question about either the viability or the profitability of the newly respected cannabis sector. Huge money has already been made in the nascent industry, and the only real question left is: where’s the next super nova?

Quarter-over-quarter sales growth is one of the indicators used to target explosive upside potential. Similar growth patterns were exhibited by many of the cannabis behemoths prior to parabolic price increases. In what may be an equally telling indicator, Wildflower Brands Inc. (CSE: SUN) (OTCQB: WLDFF) revenues have now increased 11 consecutive quarters, quarter on quarter, ever since the company started selling its hemp-based CBD products. Similar quarterly sales spikes and strategic acquisitions foreshadowed dramatic price increases in some of the largest names in the cannabis universe. Last October Medmen Enterprises Inc. (CSE: MMEN) (OTCQX: MMNFF) soared 60% in one week when the company announced a deal to buy PharmCann. Florida-based Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (OTC: TCNNF) (CSE: TRUL) went public last September through a reverse merger in Canada and soared 200% after a strong 2018 Q2. Already up big on Canadian exchanges, Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX: CRON) became the first pure-play marijuana stock to list on NASDAQ around $7 and just bounced off $23 a share. Last year, Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY) became the first cannabis company to IPO on the NASDAQ at $17 per share and by September skyrocketed to $300. Despite price surges and fluctuations in the big cannabis names, there’s bound to be more money made in the sector; the run is far from over.
