Marijuana Company of America (OTC:MCOA) is making the most of this opportunity. Founded by two veterans of the cannabis industry, MCOA is building a portfolio of partnered companies working across the sector. One of the company's important assets is hempSMART(TM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of MCOA. The hempSMART brand is focused on producing and marketing wellness products including CBD derived from hemp. The hempSMART team makes use of the cannabinoid chemicals to provide a range of products that are useful and appealing to consumers. Hemp products were worth at least $688 million in 2016 and are expected to be worth $1.8 billion by 2020. Ownership of hempSMART gives MCOA a place in this significant part of the sector, meaning that it is not dependent on federally illegal THC-laden cannabis products to grow and sustain its revenue streams.
