As journalists, brand owners and industry professionals, daily we must interact and engage with communication specialists to accomplish a myriad of goals. Like anything, some individuals tend to be more efficient, trustworthy, effective and more of a pleasure to work with overall.

There is nothing more upsetting than wasting time and money on services that do not meet your company’s needs, especially if it can be avoided. So understanding who these people are can help us in our collective decision making when it comes time to scout talent or in hiring firms and consultants.

Over the last year and a half, our team at the Green Market Report has created a running list of the top communication professionals that we feel warrant recognition. After careful consideration among the GMR team, we have selected the top ten that we feel you and your company can engage with effectively.

We feel comfortable recommending each person in this group for their work and accomplishments within their special areas of the industry for communications.

Each one of these individuals rank among the most knowledgeable, influential, helpful and professional to work with.

Investors are feeling bullish about the cannabis industry, according to a new survey released by KCSA Strategic Communications. Titled the Cannabis Investor Survey, KCSA polled over 250 retail cannabis investors about their investments and outlook on the legal cannabis industry in the United States.

Of those surveyed, 51% have a net worth between $100,000 and $500,000 while the other half (49%) have a net worth over $500,000.  According to the survey, 90% of retail investors are making money off of their stocks, and 40% say that they own stock in 10 or more cannabis companies. Roughly 50% are pulling money from other investments to invest in cannabis.

“Cannabis has graduated from being viewed as a high-risk, exotic or fringe investment, to a mainstream staple of retail investors’ stock portfolios,” said Todd Fromer, Managing Partner at KCSA Strategic Communications. “Our survey suggests that individual investors are selling their positions in traditional stocks in order to invest in cannabis stocks.”

While some may see cannabis as a way to make quick money, most retail investors say that they are in it for the long run. Approximately 80% of respondents say that they plan to hold on to their investments for between 1-10 years. Nearly half of those surveyed (40%) say that cannabis makes up more than a quarter of their overall investment portfolio.

Though cannabis remains a Schedule I controlled substance, most investors don’t seem to mind. Roughly 84% of respondents say that cannabis’ federal status has no impact on their decision to invest. Retail investors are also unafraid to invest in cannabis companies that touch the plant.

Approximately 44% say that they are invested in a medical cannabis company and 40% report to have investments in adult-use cannabis. While hemp-CBD may be the hottest thing in the health and wellness market, 37% of respondents have investments in the sector. Despite the legal benefits of investing in ancillary cannabis companies, only 24% have a financial stake in one.

The takeaway from this survey is that investors are exceedingly confident in the long-term success and stability of the cannabis industry. Instead of cautiously putting money into ancillary companies, most retail investors seem to be diving head first both adult-use and medical cannabis while shying away from “safer” investments. According to Lewis Goldberg, a managing partner at KCSA, that trend will only continue.

“Cannabis investors appear unafraid,” says Goldberg. “As they continue to invest without fear of federal illegality of cannabis and without concern regarding companies that touch the plant, we expect this sentiment will only grow as more and more states expand medical programs and pass recreational use laws.”

Lewis Goldberg of KCSA Strategic Communications Interviews Danny Moses of “The Big Short” About the Opportunities, Risks and Future of Cannabis

NEW YORK, September 5, 2018/AxisWire/ In 2007-2008 the U.S. housing market crashed and a few, very prescient investors were able to “short” the market and make a killing.  One of these traders, Danny Moses, featured in Michael Lewis’ book The Big Short  has pivoted from housing to cannabis and has since called this nascent market “The Big Long.”

Moses will be interviewed at the closing session of the first annual Green Market Summit on September 14, 2018 in New York City by Lewis Goldberg, Managing Partner at KCSA Strategic Communications, the largest investor and public relations firm operating in the cannabis industry.  

Hosted by the Green Market Report, the cannabis industry’s premier financial news organization, the one-day event will feature exclusive data and economic analysis focused on five key sectors in the industry: Banking, International Trade, Retail, E-Commerce and Seed-to-Sale Tracking. The interview will close the event and take place from 4:00 – 4:50 PM.

“As the cannabis industry continues to mature and tap into the capital markets for growth capital, investors need to understand the risks and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that are available, ” said Mr. Goldberg. “Danny Moses is one of the most recognized traders on Wall Street. This interview will provide valuable insight and forecasts by one of the greatest trading minds to those interested in the cannabis industry.”

“Cannabis represents one of the largest opportunities for investment, but it is also a minefield considering it is still federally illegal,” explained Danny Moses. “Banking and capital are the two biggest obstacles to investment in the industry. However, these risks present a greater return for those smart enough to take advantage.”

Join the industry’s leading financial minds and public companies as they review the economic landscape of the cannabis industry.

Located in the Financial District of New York City at One World Trade Center, the event is made possible through a partnership with TheStreet and the Marijuana Policy Group. The keynote speaker will feature TheStreet’s Jim Cramer, who will interview Brian Athaide CEO of The Green Organic Dutchman.
