Hello and welcome back to Investing After Hours — our Wealth Daily podcast that's dedicated to helping everyday investors navigate major investing trends. Our team of experts has specialized knowledge in a variety of investing methods.

And we broadcast this knowledge from our office above the Baltimore harbor.

I am your host, Alexandra Perry, the research director at Wealth Daily.

Welcome to Episode Number 8: Cannabis and Socially-Conscious Investing.


Cannabis investing has been a hot topic for months, and the reason is obvious: money.

Green stocks are making investors buckets of it. And that trend is set to continue with legalization on the horizon and public support growing. Analysts predict that the cannabis industry's value will reach $20.6 billion by 2020.

But despite the industry's dynamic potential, most investors remain uneducated on how to approach the cannabis market.

Today, Jeff Siegel — a cannabis and renewable energy investor — joins us to share his experience in the cannabis industry.

Jeff has been investing in cannabis for years. He views it as a socially-conscious investment. His publication Green Chip Stocks helps investors cash in on a variety of cannabis-based investments.

He attends conferences and cannabis finance meetings around the world, interacting with companies at the forefront of the cannabis industry. It's that experience that allows us to cover a diverse range of topics today, including:

  • The different sectors of cannabis investing
  • The legal complications of investing
  • How cannabis qualifies as a socially-conscious investment
  • How policy can affect cannabis as we move forward.

Best of luck and happy listening!

P.S. Jeff mentions a company in the podcast called Defonce Chocolate. It's been one of his favorite investments and cannabis products. You can check out that company here.
