“Would you like marijuana with that?”
That’s not something you hear every day. But Moon Juice, a juice bar in the hip Los Angeles neighborhood Silver Lake, has been asking its customers this question lately.
It’s not the only place doing this, either. According to the marijuana media website Leafly, juice bars across LA are now offering marijuana infusions.
Many people are saying “yes,” too… but not to get stoned.
No. They’re doing this for health reasons.
I’ll tell you why in a second. I’ll also explain why marijuana will be the next big health craze. And finally, I’ll show you how to profit from it.
Let me clarify something first.
• LA juice bars aren’t adding tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to their juices…
They’re adding cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is a compound in cannabis. It doesn’t get people high like THC… But it does offer many health benefits.
People take it to treat everything from anxiety to insomnia to chronic pain—you name it.
And because CBD doesn’t get people stoned, you can buy it almost anywhere in the United States. That’s actually been true for years. But CBD didn’t become a such big health craze until recently.
So what’s changed? Simple: Marijuana legalization is sweeping the nation.
To date, 29 U.S. states (plus Washington, DC) have already legalized medical marijuana. And nine states (plus DC) have approved recreational use.
• In short, marijuana has never been easier to buy…
Because of this, marijuana is no longer just for stoners. Lawyers, doctors, and accountants are consuming it, too. It’s gone mainstream.
And this trend will only continue. That’s because the marijuana industry is growing quickly.
Of course, it wasn’t always like this. A few years ago, the marijuana industry only appealed to stoners. Dispensaries in places like Colorado mostly sold strains of marijuana. You had to be an aficionado to know what you were buying.
It’s a different story now. These days, many top marijuana brands don’t even emphasize what kind of marijuana they’re selling. Instead, they sell “feelings.”
Take 1906, a premier marijuana chocolate brand based in Denver, Colorado. They produce a “Go” chocolate for body energy. They have a “Pause” chocolate to help people relax. And they have a “Midnight” chocolate that’s made to help people sleep.
Here’s a picture of the company’s chocolate factory that I toured in January.
The company took this approach because it understands that many people are buying marijuana for the first time. They don’t know specific strains. But they do know what they want to feel.
You should also know something else: All of 1906’s products contain five milligrams (mg) of CBD and five mg of THC (a relatively low dose). 1906 did this because most people don’t want to get stoned out of their minds… They just want a mild high.
• Some people don’t even want to get high off marijuana at all…
They just want to experience the health benefits that marijuana offers. That’s why people in LA are paying top dollar for CBD-infused juices. And that’s just one example. There are many other CBD products out on the market right now.
I know this because I attended a marijuana lifestyle conference last summer in Vancouver, Canada. There, I saw everything from CBD “bath bombs” to CBD dog treats. See for yourself.
This company made this product because CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It can help dogs with arthritis feel better. One of my good friends in Florida is using it for this reason. He says it’s done wonders for his dog’s arthritis.
• I’m telling you this because most people see marijuana as a one-trick pony…
They think that it’s something that only gets people high. But, as you’ve seen today, a lot of people aren’t buying marijuana to get stoned. They’re buying it for health reasons.
This trend will only continue as more states legalize marijuana. I’ll even go out on a limb and say this…
CBD will be the next big health craze in the United States.
But that’s obviously not the only reason why I’m interested in this space…
• The legal marijuana market is exploding before our eyes…
In the U.S., it’s already a $6.5 billion industry. By 2026, it’s expected to be a $75 billion market.
That means the industry is set to grow more than ten-fold in less than a decade. That’s almost unheard of. In fact, we haven’t seen a consumer industry grow this rapidly since broadband internet in the early 2000s.
So consider speculating on marijuana stocks if you haven’t already. Just remember to use discipline if you get into this space.
Do your homework before making any marijuana investments. Only bet money you can afford to lose. Use stop losses. And take profits when they come.
Investors who use discipline with marijuana stocks will set themselves up for huge gains without exposing themselves to major losses.

P.S. In last week’s exclusive Pot Stock Millionaire Summit, over 20,000 people tuned in to learn what Doug Casey, Crisis Investing editor Nick Giambruno, and I had to say about the fast-growing marijuana market.
During the event, our team shared critical details on the top marijuana companies in the space today. Our live presentation is no longer online. But we created a brand-new video where you can catch up on all the details. This special presentation is only available until midnight tonight, so check it out here while you still can.
Today, kind words for Doug and his new book—Totally Incorrect Volume 2.
Doug, you’ve been a good man and I’ve done well by you. I wanted to thank you for sending me the new book (Totally Incorrect Volume 2) that you were selling for shipping only. Wish I could’ve had a book with your signature on it! I just wanted to say to you and Nick that I’ve never met such a fine group of guys like yourselves in my life. I’ve enjoyed all that you have done for me! I just wish I had a few more bucks so I could have taken advantage of all your brilliant work!
Doug’s new book may be his most controversial yet… and you can learn how to get your copy for free right here.
And a comment from our recent guest essay, “Surviving Fedcoin”…
You stated in today’s Dispatch that Google, Facebook, and MSN have banned any mention of cryptocurrencies. “Some of the world’s largest websites—including Google, Facebook, and MSN—now prevent advertisers from even mentioning Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies on their sites…” It’s really easy to check these statements and see that this is completely false. It takes a long time to gain credibility and it’s easy as heck to lose it.
Justin’s note: We couldn’t agree more when it comes to credibility. That’s why we’ve never been in the business of passing along “fake news.”
As you can read here, here, and here… These companies are indeed blocking advertisements that mention cryptocurrencies. Since a number of our presentations are focused on this volatile space, the ban affects us as well.
Keep on questioning, though… There’s lots of fake news out there to cut through.
