Join Eric Schleien with today's interview guest, Julian Lin, as they discuss the different names in the country's cannabis industry and the stocks he entered and exited in light of the pandemic. For some of these companies, leaving the pandemic with so much debt and having to spend so much for redevelopment isn't going to be an excellent spot to have.


In this episode, Julian also talks about the presence of Canadian cannabis brands in American markets. Despite them being 'okay,' because they're the only names people can invest in when in America, the evaluations of these brands coming from across the border remain to sore insanely. Nonetheless, cannabis brands have challenges unique to them in general.

Julian acknowledges that when you look at these companies, they scream expensive. In reality, if cannabis is decriminalized and is not to pay a particular type of tax in the future anymore, their shares will trade at multiple folds in earnings. For Julian, the macro picture for cannabis is all promising in the next 2-4 years.
