It's considered the largest cash crop in the U.S.
Enjoying a growth rate of 77% from 2013 to 2014 and an estimated 700% growth rate by the end of 2018, it's bigger than corn, bigger than cotton, and bigger than wheat.
I'm talking about marijuana. And according to UN data, it's valued at about $142 billion.
To put that into perspective, the global coffee market — one of the most valuable commodities on the planet — is valued at about $80 billion per year.
The bottom line is that marijuana is no longer the underground drug that can only be bought on street corners from criminals. It's now a viable industry that's making investors an absolute fortune.
Take for instance, Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) — one of the biggest producers of cannabis on the planet.
It's one of the biggest winners in the marijuana space to date. Check it out:
A $10,000 investment in WEED turned into $225,000.
Double that, and you're looking at $450,000 — nearly a half-million dollars!
Or consider Aphria, Inc. (TSX: APH) — another cannabis producer operating out of Canada but also boasting assets in the U.S. and Australia.
In February 2016, the stock was trading at around $1.10. By January 2018, it hit $24:
That's a gain of 2,081%!
Imagine putting $50,000 in APH in early 2016 and cashing out less than two years later. That would've put an extra $1.1 million into your pocket.
