Motley Fool recently published an article highlighting the top two marijuana stocks to buy in January 2021. With cannabis stocks on the rise, the article notes investors’ hope in the newly Democratic-controlled Senate in setting the US on a path to decriminalization or legalization.

The writer makes note of two stocks that investors might consider to take advantage of the growing cannabis industry. 

The writer recommends looking into Canadian company, Aphria (NASDAQ:APHA) because of its upcoming merger with medical cannabis company Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY), which will form the largest global cannabis grower. The company increased its sales by 33% year over year during the second fiscal quarter of 2021, ended November 30, 2020. 

The writer also notes HEXO (NYSE:HEXO), which holds the largest market share in Quebec. The company’s joint venture with Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE:TAP) to develop a line of CBD infused beverages, including a range of infused sparkling water recently launched in Colorado. The writer also notes the company’s doubling of year over year sales.

If the writer had dug a bit deeper, they may have also highlighted CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (OTCQB:CLSH; CSE:CLSH). This vertically integrated cannabis producer and retailer has posted record revenues in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, driven by its Nevada subsidiaries, Oasis Cannabis Dispensary, and branded wholesale division, City Trees. City Trees can now be found in nearly 80% of Nevada dispensaries, having grown its footprint following its successful rebrand in September 2020. Meanwhile, Oasis Cannabis posted numerous consecutive months of revenue growth in 2020, establishing itself as the choice for locals in Las Vegas. With a variety of new product releases scheduled for February 2021, CLS Holdings (CLSH) is one to watch this month.

CLS is a vertically integrated cannabis producer and retailer offering a wide variety of cannabis products through two subsidiaries: Oasis Cannabis and City Trees. We hold a U.S. Patent for our proprietary extraction and conversion methodology, which delivers products with a higher level of quality and consistency. The Company’s business model includes licensing operations, processing operations, processing facilities, sale of products, brand creation and consulting.

Oasis Cannabis has operated a cannabis dispensary in the Las Vegas market since dispensaries first opened in Nevada in 2015 and has been recognized as one of the top marijuana retailers in the state. Its location within walking distance to the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas in combination with its delivery service to residents allows it to efficiently serve both locals and tourists in the Las Vegas area. Accolades for the dispensary include “Best Dispensary for Pot Pros” by Desert Companion Magazine, and the shop has been listed on Thrillist’s “Best Las Vegas Dispensaries” lists, including their “Best Weed Delivery in Las Vegas” during the COVID-19 pandemic. In August 2017, the company commenced wholesale offerings of cannabis in Nevada with the launch of its City Trees brand of cannabis concentrates and cannabis-infused products.

Founded in 2017, City Trees is a Nevada-based cannabis cultivation, production and distribution company. Offering a wide variety of products with consistent results, City Trees award-winning products are available in numerous dispensaries throughout the state of Nevada. City Trees’ current offerings include ethanol extracted distillate-based products including disposable vape pens, cartridges, distillate applicators, and tinctures, along with hydrocarbon extracted craft concentrates. The brand has received numerous awards for its offerings, including two High Times Awards for its Calm 1:1 cartridge and Blue Agave Tincture, and a Las Vegas Cannabis Award for Best Syringe for Jack Herer. City Trees also offers toll processing through its extraction facility, working with brands across the state of Nevada to produce concentrates for numerous partners. In September 2020, City Trees unveiled its rebranded offerings, featuring new design criteria and a reinforcement of its commitment to sustainability. An integral part of its brand identity, City Trees transitioned to recyclable packaging in tandem with its redesign, and has made a significant partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, wherein each sale of a 1:1 product is accompanied by a donation that will plant a tree. In 2020, this partnership resulted in 115,000 trees planted in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest in Georgia through the combined efforts of 19 companies, including City Trees.

Recently, CLS Holdings announced its second quarter results for fiscal 2021, which included a 61% increase in revenue over the second fiscal quarter of 2020. This was driven by a 58% increase in year over year quarterly revenue at City Trees, and continued growth in traffic and average transaction totals at Oasis Cannabis.

Following this quarterly update, the Company released its monthly results for December 2020. These results showed a 50.2% increase in monthly revenue compared to December 2019, including a 174% increase in year over year monthly revenue from City Trees. With a variety of new product releases scheduled for February 2021, this division is further solidifying its position as an industry leader in extraction in Nevada.
