Top Stocks That Could Benefit From USDA’s Hemp Rules Rolling out in August 2019

Hemp has a strong future thanks to the U.S. Farm Bill. In fact, farmers across the U.S. have been rushing for a piece of the hemp market ever since President Trump signed the Farm Bill, which removed hemp from the government’s controlled-drug category, triggering a surge in demand. However, farmers could see even more demand, as the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) prepares to introduce federal hemp rules in August 2019, speeding previous plans to roll out the guidelines by 2020. The USDA noted regulations would address land usage, standards for testing, disposal, law enforcement compliance, inspections, and certification for both products and industry workers. That’s opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including MYM Nutraceuticals Inc., (CSE:MYM)(OTCQB:MYMMF), Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. (CSE:CWEB) (OTC:CWBHF), Cannabis Science Inc. (OTCPK:CBIS), Village Farms International Inc. (TSX:VFF) (NASDAQ:VFF), and PharmaCielo Ltd. (OTCPK:PHCEF)(TSX-V:PCLO).

Cannabis Companies are Aggressively Expanding Their Global Footprint

The cannabis market is gaining significant traction. Over the last year, Canada approved its recreational use. More U.S. states are legalizing. Corporate America is using cannabis in everything from lotions and sunscreen to alcohol and sports drinks. President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill into law. In addition, over the next decade, spending on worldwide cannabis could reach $57 billion by 2027, according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics. In their report, “The Road Map to $57 Billion Worldwide Market,” analysts note that the South American market for example could grow from $125 million in 2018 to $776 million by 2027. They also note that Germany could become the leader in the European cannabis market, with Italy expected to see $1.2 billion cannabis sales by 2027. That’s opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including MYM Nutraceuticals Inc., (CSE:MYM) (OTCQB:MYMMF), Cannabis Science Inc. (OTCPK:CBIS), OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:OGI)(TSX-V:OGI), Curaleaf Holdings Inc. (CSE:CURA)(OTCQX:CURLF), and The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc. (TSX:FIRE)(OTCQX:SPRWF).

Cannabis Companies That are Thriving Thanks to 2018 U.S. Farm Bill

With the passage of the U.S. Farm Bill, hemp will see a significant catalyst for growth. It’s already allowing for hemp cultivation and the transfer of hemp products across state lines for commercial and other purposes, notes Forbes. Along the way, It may just create a $39.4 billion market, says Markets and Markets, a marked improvement from a $10.3 billion valuation in 2018. That’s opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including MYM Nutraceuticals Inc., (CSE:MYM) (OTC:MYMMF), Village Farms International Inc. (TSX:VFF)(NASDAQ:VFF), Cannabis Science Inc. (OTC:CBIS), Crop Infrastructure Corp. (CSE:CROP)(OTC:CRXPF), and Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. (CSE:CWEB)(OTC:CWBHF).
