The CannaBS Detector

Have you ever thought about quitting your day job to pursue getting a slice of the multibillion-dollar cannabis industry pie? Are you currently investing in, or considering investing in the cannabis industry? If you answered yes to either of those questions, YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS THIS PODCAST.

Join the cannabis industry's very own veteran BS detector, Kristen Yoder, as she uncovers and dissects the various scams and pitfalls most, if not all, people will encounter along their cannabis journey, through entertaining and informational interviews with experts across the industry.

“The best decisions are informed decisions, and in an industry as new and hyped up in the media as the Cannabis industry is, there are many opportunities for BS to occur, and it is occurring on a major scale."

Given my astute ability 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

  • How national legalization will lead to globalization
  • How globalization will impact the US industry
  • Why would an individual investor prefer cannabis to be rescheduled when funds like Acreage Holdings are pushing for legalization
  • What types of investments should people go for keeping national legalization in mind
  • When you have a short time to invest - spend the time doing due diligence
  • Signs you should be aware of, ie CEO pressuring to close, etc
  • What will happen when hemp is globalized now that it has been removed from the CSA(Controlled Substances Act)
  • Should you be concerned about investing in companies that use 3rd world labor
  • What’s going to happen to the culture of the industry

3 Lessons Learned

  • Globalization will make the hemp costs go down due to competition and lower costs in 3rd world companies and consolidated businesses
  • Invest in large facilities because size is going to matter to the big corporations that eat them up. Invest in front of the consolidation, ie who’s best for being merged/rolled up
  • Question the motives of CEO’s and hedge fund managers when they are preaching for national legalization - who really benefits?
