The term “going green” has just gotten a new meaning as the Canadian based medical cannabis company Tilray has everyone talking.
Some backround: The company is based in Vancouver Canada and is dedicated to cultivating and delivering the benefits of medical cannabis safely and reliably, according to their website.
Tilray had its IPO in July with its initial share price at $17 per share. Looking at it today, the stock is trading around $140 with a recent high of over $300 per share in September.
Looking at the big picture why the company has become so attractive for investors is that the DEA has just signed off on Tilray Inc’s plan to import cannabis from Canada to the United States for medical research. Tilray will work closely with the University of California’s cannabis research centre in San Diego to study whether cannabis can be effective in treating neurological movement disorders.
Here are some of the other locations around the world, where Tilray have expanded their operations to, as well as completed exports.
