Medicinal uses for marijuana continue to add up – which is increasing the profit potential of marijuana stocks to invest in.
Marijuana has been hailed as an effective treatment for pain, cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, and more. New reports show marijuana is also effective in treating Alzheimer’s disease.
While cannabis stocks are trendy right now, most people aren’t good at investments. Here are three cannabis investment advisors recommended, which may give you the insight to better invest in the industry.
Viridian Capital Advisors
In June 2014, Viridian Capital Advisors, LLC (“VCA”) was founded as one of the earliest financial and strategic advisory firms in the cannabis sector, with a team of seasoned investment bankers and analysts who brought capital raise, M&A and advisory transaction experience to the cannabis industry. They surrounded themselves with an Advisory Board comprised of former President’s, CEO’s and C-Suite executives from some of the largest companies in the CPG, Big Brand and Private Equity industries, including Diageo, Proctor & Gamble, Anheuser Busch, Mars Wrigley, Dixie Brands, Pantheon Partners and Conde Nast.
To date, the Viridian team has closed 15 financing transactions totaling approximately $170 million, and 10 M&A transactions with total consideration of approximately $400 million. It has performed several dozen valuation, financial modeling and board development assignments for our cannabis client companies.
The team has advised, financed, founded, bought/sold and took public scores of companies over the past thirty years. Creativity and perseverance are the foundation of the cannabis industry and a defining characteristic of the Viridian culture and their investment banking professionals.
