Investing in publicly traded cannabis companies has been on an upward trend for a few years now, and more and more money is being invested by the day. Given my abilities at sniffing out BS, people often reach out to me asking me for recommendations on which companies to invest in. I decided to call upon my favorite, and most trusted wealth advisor, Colby Mcfadden of Quiver Financial and Green Flower Media, to make a series about investing in the cannabis industry to better educate myself, and the masses alike. Let me know what you think!

List of Topics/subjects discussed

  • What is an RTO(Reverse Take Over) and why are there so many RTO’s happening in Canada by US companies?
  • Why are Canadian companies listed on the NYSE?
  • Can US cannabis companies be traded on the NYSE?
