When Canada legalized recreational cannabis in October 2018, Canada’s LPs may have thought the hard part was over.
Unfortunately, regulation surrounding the advertisement of cannabis makes the prospect of ‘brand-building’ through traditional means a near impossibility.

With a unique and innovative method of reaching their demographic, the company aims to not only help erase the head shop stigma of selling legal weed, but to secure Westleaf as a provider of premium craft cannabis for the discerning Canadian cannabis connoisseur.
Equity.Guru’s Chris Parry spoke with Westleaf CEO, Scott Hurd, to get an inside look at the company, Canada’s cannabis retail sector and the potential the company holds for investors over the next 12 months.

Legal cannabis has had a wild ride on the public markets: while some cannabis companies were being valued at 20x sales, operators in other sectors like energy and resources saw their market caps shrivel.
Now that cannabis is teetering on the edge of correction and oil is making a modest price comeback, investors have a place to throw their hard-earned dollars that won't shrink their investment by 50% in case short sellers finally prove the cannabis sector, like the proverbial emperor, isn't wearing clothes.
Companies like Permex Petroleum (OIL.C) are geared up for the next energy supercycle, having utilized the downturn to pick up some tasty distressed properties on the cheap. Combine that with the company's on-going oil production and you have a small cap junior with lots of room to move up the boards.
Equity.Guru's Chris Parry spoke with Permex CEO, Mehran Ehsan, to get a closer look at the company's assets, the energy sector, Canada's unique predicament when it comes to oil exploration and where investors can expect the Permex to move over the next 12 months.

Lifestyle Delivery Systems (LDS.C) is a United States-based manufacturer of cannabis edibles. The company has had its share of hard knocks establishing a presence in the legal California cannabis market and has had to answer for a string of missed milestones.
Many of the hiccups can be attributed to California's ephemeral cannabis legislation which continued to change considerably after legalization, often without warning and without an ounce of understanding for the companies in the space.
However, hard questions for the company's management still need to be asked. Equity.Guru's Chris Parry spoke with Brad Eckenweiler, LDS CEO, to provide an explanation for past activities, an outline for what LDS is doing now and a map of where the company intends to head over the next 12 months.

Blue Sky Uranium's (BSK.V) is a uranium and vanadium-focused exploration company based in Argentina. The company's Ivana property in southern Argentina hosts a near-surface uranium deposit containing 28 million pounds of U308 and 11.5 million pounds of V2O5.
Nuclear power, and uranium in particular, is an integral part of satisfying the enormous amounts of electricity demanded by countries like China and the United States. Fukishima notwithstanding, nuclear power alleviates most environmental concerns surrounding traditional coal-powered generators and hydro-electric dams.
As such, Blue Sky is leveraging Argentina's developed resource sector. The South American nation's mining-friendly legislation and Ivana's robust economics combine to deliver what the company feels is a low-cost, near-term uranium producer with additional potential vanadium credits.
Equity.Guru's Chris Parry spoke with David A. Terry, director at Blue Sky Uranium, to get details on Blue Sky, its Argentinian portfolio, the current state of the uranium market and what the junior explorer plans for 2019.
