The industry feels a lot like craft beer, with everyone churning out similar products and formats and yet it’s the stories told through design that separate the highlights from the lows, no pun intended.

Built by the employees of upscale brand Canndescent, Good was created to be accessible to everyone. Colorful, easy-going and straight-forward, they’ve built a world we can feel, well, pretty, pretty, pretty good about.

These are the core tenants of Sonder, perhaps the most evocative of all the cannabis brands seen at Hall of Flowers. It’s indulgent, and the more-is-more aesthetic inspired by the free love and wonder of the 70s comes with typefaces exploding with character, and playful compositions and cheeky copywriting that tickle the mystic or vintage-lovers of society.

From sunup to sundown, Aster Farms is ushering in a unique, sustainable cannabis brand that is Japanese-minimalism, Brooklyn-chic and California-conscious at the same time. They’ve designed a unique identity system around strains and function with packaging depicting a sun on the front, and moon on the back.

Juna is a cannabis and hemp collection crafted in California to optimize pleasure be it physically, spiritually or even gastronomically. But, for our purposes here, we’ll focus on the obvious visual delights – a sleek, industrial yet quirky wordmark floats atop a beautifully muted and earthy background tied to its plant origin with a cool blue-grey for cannabis and earthen green for hemp.

These are the marijuana stocks with the highest year-over-year (YOY) sales growth for the most recent quarter. Rising sales can help investors identify companies that are able to grow revenue organically or through other means, and find growing companies that have not yet reached profitability. In addition, earnings per share can be significantly influenced by accounting factors that may not reflect the overall strength of the business. However, sales growth can also be potentially misleading about the strength of a business, because growing sales on money-losing businesses can be harmful if the company has no plan to reach profitability.

The marijuana industry is made up of companies that either support or are engaged in the research, development, distribution, and sale of medical and recreational marijuana. Cannabis has begun to gain wider acceptance and has been legalized in a growing number of nations, states, and other jurisdictions for recreational, medicinal, and other uses. Some of the biggest companies in the marijuana industry include Canopy Growth Corp. (CGC), Cronos Group Inc. (CRON), and Tilray Inc. (TLRY). Many big marijuana companies have continued to post sizable net losses as they focus on investing in equipment to speed up revenue growth.

Marijuana stocks, as represented by the ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF (MJ), have slightly outperformed the broader market. MJ has provided a total return of 36.9% over the past 12 months, above the Russell 1000 index’s total return of 35.0%. These market performance numbers and all statistics in the tables below are as of Aug. 23, 2021.

Fastest Growing Marijuana Stocks

Here are the top 5 marijuana stocks with the best value, the fastest growth, and the most momentum.

These are the marijuana stocks with the lowest 12-month trailing price-to-sales (P/S) ratio. For companies in the early stages of development or industries suffering from major shocks, this can be substituted as a rough measure of a business’s value. A business with higher sales could eventually produce more profit when it achieves, or returns to, profitability. The P/S ratio shows how much you’re paying for the stock for each dollar of sales generated.

Momentum investing is a factor-based investing strategy in which you invest in a stock whose price has risen faster than the market as a whole. Momentum investors believe that stocks which have outperformed the market will often continue to do so, because the factors that caused them to outperform will not suddenly disappear. In addition, other investors, seeking to benefit from the stock’s outperformance, will often purchase the stock, further bidding its price higher and pushing the stock higher still. These are the stocks that had the highest total return over the last 12 months.

Caviar Gold
The name, to be honest, is a little bit silly, a mishmash of two expensive-sounding words that have nothing to do with each other. But it’s Caviar Gold’s CEO Mike Brunson who’s laughing all the way to the bank: His patented distillate-dipped flower is widely regarded as the most potent cannabis product on the market, and it’s in every way a trendsetter when it comes to pushing the cannabis envelope.

The brainchild of soccer sisters Rachael and Megan Rapinoe, this CBD-only company earns rave reviews for their healing salve stick and, more recently, gummies and tinctures as well.

Cheech’s Stash
Come on, you didn’t think we’d leave Cheech out, did you? Is it markedly different from his partner’s offering? Not especially. Still, he’s unavoidable when it comes to cannabis culture.

25 Most Recognizable Cannabis Brands: What’s In a Name? Celebrity Brands

Somewhat like Nature’s Medicines, Wana’s branding takes more of a middle-of-the-road approach than high-design offerings like THC or Dosist. But the focus on a single product line—fruit-flavored, infused gummies—makes Wana one of the most recognized cannabis brands in the country.

Marley Natural
The joint creation—no pun intended—of international reggae superstar Bob Marley’s estate along with major cannabis equity firm Privateer Holdings, the Marley Natural brand plays off its namesake’s commitment to social justice and environmental protection and restoration projects. It’s a connection that lends credibility to the company’s tasteful, high-end accessories and cannabis products.

While there’s no single and simple formula for success in the cannabis world, you’ll pretty quickly recognize some common elements and themes at work. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the 25 most recognizable cannabis brands. They’re ranked not by popularity, but by buckets: Branding, Product, and Mission

THC Design
Even if you haven’t yet heard of it, this secretive cannabis brand is a very major player in California’s recreational cannabis arena. Operating out of a massive facility deep in Los Angeles, THC puts out some 70 signature strains, including its flagship XJ-13. It’s the branding that grabs you, though: Animations and product shots that recall a molecular gastronomy restaurant or the monitors on a luxury space ship.
