    Portfolio Holdings:
    Aurora Cannabis (ACB) 40%
    Canopy Growth (CGC) 40%
    GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH) 20%

    Canopy Growth (CGC) and Aurora Cannabis (ACB)
    CGC and ACB are the two largest companies in global cannabis by market cap and enterprise value. While Canopy Growth is stronger in recreational cannabis than Aurora, ACB is stronger in medical cannabis.

    The author of the idea believes CGC and ACB have the highest probability of success in the fast growing cannabis market. The winners in the cannabis market will be those who can find customers, especially for higher-margin products like patented medical products or processed cannabis products with premium branding and pricing. These 2 companies has achieved impressive results in these elements.

    The total addressable market of these companies may grow 86% per year over the next 6 years. If so, Aurora and Canopy Growth are likely to have many years of tremendous growth ahead.

    United Traders is experienced in mitigating any risks, but a future investor must be aware of all the risk types:
