I’m Kristen Barrett, the senior managing editor for Winning Investor Daily. I’m thrilled to start giving you the inside intel on what our experts are saying about booming trends, what’s coming ahead and more.
To kick off today, let’s talk about the latest fad in alcoholic beverages — spiked seltzers. As Matt Badiali and Anthony Planas tell me, it’s another sign of the massive potential in cannabis stocks.
If you haven’t heard of this trend, just know that last week, The Hustle reported that sales of White Claw Hard Seltzer surged 320% in the last year.
Hard seltzer isn’t new. But there’s a reason that these products’ sales are through the roof right now — and it gives cannabis-infused products another market to tap into.
A $550 million market.
Think of the health-conscious folks who gave up soda in favor of low-calorie, low-sugar options such as LaCroix. They’re looking for drinks with fewer carbs than beer. And they want less sugar as well as lower alcohol by volume than wine or liquor.
A can of White Claw is 100 calories. That’s about as low as you can get with alcohol.
If you remove the alcohol, you get rid of the calories.
And if you infuse THC — a marijuana compound — in seltzer water, you get a buzz without the bloat.
That’s exactly why we think marijuana-based companies stand to profit. There will be huge demand.
Remember, cannabis-infused beverages are already here. For instance, Heineken subsidiary Lagunitas makes a nonalcoholic drink called Hi-Fi Hops. It tastes like an India Pale Ale, aka an IPA — but with no calories or carbs. Right now, you can only buy it in cannabis dispensaries in California.
But on December 16, cannabis-infused beverages like these will hit shelves in Canada. Truss — Molson Coors Brewing Co.’s joint venture with Hexo Corp. — says it has a large supply of drinks ready to meet the demand.
So we want you to be ready.
Yes, these drinks are tricky to market in the U.S. because marijuana isn’t legal at the federal level … yet.
But once they hit Canadian shelves, they’ll take off in North America.
That demand — and revenue — should put more pressure on the U.S. federal government to legalize THC-infused food and drinks.
With all that in mind, Matt Badiali and Anthony Planas have researched the three best cannabis companies to invest in before the THC market takes off.
They are all trading under $10 right now.
You can hear the details during Matt’s Pot Profits Summit, which you can access here.
Now I’d like to hear your opinion about this latest trend.
Many think the recent pullback in marijuana stocks created the opportunity of the decade.
