How do I invest in cannabis stocks?

Around the world, the legalisation of cannabis is part of the political discussion on a regular basis. In several countries, it is already allowed to use cannabis for medical purposes and, in some cases, to grow own plants.

As pharmaceuticals, cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) products are mainly used for the treatment of chronic pain. They can also be used for cancer and multiple sclerosis.

The outlook of increasing use of cannabis and CBD in medicine and the expectation of further legalisations worldwide are the reasons why investors have identified cannabis as an investment theme. Cannabis ETFs offer access to companies with business activities in the medical cannabis and CBD industry.

In this investment guide, you will find all ETFs that allow you to invest in cannabis. Currently, there are 2 indices or 2 ETFs available for investment.
