What UK investors need to know about this new medical marijuana ETF

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Tezcan Gecgil, PhD | Saturday, 8th February, 2020 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” London Stock Exchange recently announced that a new thematic exchange-traded fund (ETF) has been launched in the UK. It offers investors exposure to a wide range of stocks whose business is concentrated on medicinal cannabis.Today, I’m introducing this ETF to our readers so that they can conduct further due diligence to see if medical cannabis investing is appropriate for them. First, a brief introduction to terminology…5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Cannabis, marijuana, hempIn 2018, Canada became the first developed economy to legalise marijuana nationwide. Most of us do not know the difference between cannabis, marijuana, and hemp very well. Therefore we often use these terms interchangeably.Cannabis Sativa is the botanical name of the plant species. This plant has different strains, one of which is industrial hemp and another is marijuana. Therefore hemp and marijuana are sometimes referred to as ‘cousins’.Industrial hemp naturally has high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD is especially popular among consumers seeking relief from physical pain. THC is responsible for the ‘high’ from smoking marijuana. In other words, hemp does not have the psychoactive properties of marijuana.The Medical Cannabis and Wellness ETFAccording to the LSE website, on 22 January, HANetf and Canada-based asset manager, Purpose Investments, launched The Medical Cannabis and Wellness UCITS ETF (CBDX) on the LSE.As of 2018, the global medical cannabis market size was about £10bn. By 2026, the market is expected to go over £100bn.The new ETF tracks the Medical Cannabis and Wellness Equity Index, provided by Solactive, a Germany-based company that designs, calculates, and licenses financial indices.The CBDX ETF consists of publicly listed companies conducting legal business activities in the medical cannabis, hemp, and CBD industry, including producers and suppliers of medical cannabis, CBD-focused biotech companies, companies leasing property to medical cannabis growers, and software solutions for medical cannabis producers.Other developments in the UKAs of November 2018, the Home Office has allowed medical doctors to prescribe medicinal cannabis. However, the recreational sale and use of cannabis, a Class B drug (with possession punishable by five years in prison), is banned.CBD products are still illegal to manufacture in Britain, though low concentration versions of cannabis oil are available in pharmacies. It is only through EU regulation that imported CBD products could be sold domestically without any kind of licence. With our departure from the EU, there may be changes regarding CBD, too.Our readers may be surprised to learn that Britain is the biggest producer and exporter of legal cannabis in the world. And that is thanks to one drug, Sativex, produced by Cambridge-based GW Pharmaceuticals. In 1998, the company obtained a unique Home Office licence to cultivate cannabis seeds. It now produces Sativex to treat spasms in multiple sclerosis patients. The company is listed in the NASDAQ stock market in the US.Foolish takeawayWe are now witnessing more public debate on medical marijuana, CBD, and the rapidly changing cannabis industry. Medical cannabis is increasingly becoming a recognised investment theme.In 2019, valuations in mostly Canada-based medical marijuana companies have compressed to attractive levels. And the sector may be for a rebound after a multi-month decline. Investors with a long-term horizon may want to follow the developments and consider buying into this new ETF.

Institute of Fundraising consults on online consultations

first_img Howard Lake | 25 March 2004 | News Institute of Fundraising consults on online consultations AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Institute of Fundraising is suggesting to its members that it use electronic means to bring consultation documents to their attention and to seek feedback.The Institute’s proposal featured in a letter to members from Andrew Watt, Deputy Chief Executive. He explained that “we anticipate that there will be an increase in the volume of consultations in the future, raising from the implementation of a self-regulatory structure for fundraising.” As a result, he reports that the Institute is “considering running e-consultations.” By this he means “informing stakeholders by e-mail of the consultation and asking them to view the consultation documents on the Institute’s Web site.” Advertisement  22 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img Any comments on this proposal should, appropriately enough, be e-mailed to the Institute at [email protected] by 21 May 2004.While it is encouraging that the Institute feels it should consult its members on so many aspects of its work, it is somewhat disappointing that it should see this move as in any way controversial. Other membership bodies have been doing it for years.Of course, if they were to rely solely on electronic communications for consultations and feedback, then they would probably be excluding the minority of their members who don’t or won’t use such a medium. But that isn’t the case, so the Institute should just get on with using e-mail to communicate in all ways it sees fit, including running consultations.

El juicio político no es suficiente

first_imgHay tantas razones para sacar a Donald Trump de la Casa Blanca que no sorprende en absoluto que haya comenzado un movimiento en la Cámara de Representantes para acusarlo. En este punto, es un esfuerzo totalmente partidista, con casi todos los demócratas por el juicio político y casi todos los republicanos en contra.El gobierno ha herido profundamente a tantas personas que se animan ante la posibilidad de que Trump pueda verse obligado a dejar el cargo, incluso antes de las próximas elecciones presidenciales. La mayoría de ellos quiere ver prevalecer al Partido Demócrata.Por supuesto, el juicio político dejaría a Mike Pence, no a los demócratas, a cargo del gobierno.La acusación de funcionarios públicos en los EE.UU. ha ocurrido raramente. En general, ha tenido éxito solo en casos como deshacerse de los jueces que estaban visiblemente borrachos mientras presidían los juicios.Si bien cualquiera que sea medio progresista se alegraría de sacar a Trump del cargo de una forma u otra, es importante tomar nota de cómo y por qué podría ser derrocado. ¿Se debe a todos sus movimientos súper reaccionarios que han hecho un daño terrible a millones de personas en este país, especialmente a los más oprimidos?Trump ha dado luz verde al racismo y los ataques contra los inmigrantes, envalentonando a los elementos de extrema derecha más violentos. Esto ha llevado a las condiciones más dolorosas e incluso letales en la frontera de Estados Unidos con México y en las casas infernales para migrantes llamadas “centros de detención”, en donde los niños, incluso los bebés, han sido separados de sus padres.Trump ha socavado los programas sociales destinados a aliviar la pobreza. Ha ignorado, e incluso ridiculizado, la contaminación ambiental, al tiempo que se ha puesto del lado de las compañías multimillonarias de energía responsables de la crisis climática.¿Pero es por eso que Trump enfrenta un posible juicio político? ¿O es porque los verdaderos gobernantes de este país y el gobierno lo han considerado ineficaz para proteger sus intereses, hasta el punto de la bufonada? El tema por el que han elegido atacarlo es su intento de obtener ayuda de los políticos en Ucrania para desacreditar a un posible rival político, Joe Biden. Seguramente, ese es el menor de los crímenes de Donald Trump.¿Es solo la personalidad errática y grandiosa de Trump lo que estaría en juicio? Eso dejaría a Pence, que lo discreta mientras persigue su propia agenda derechista, sentado en el asiento del gato. Incluso si Trump fuera expulsado antes de las elecciones de 2020, lo cual no es muy probable, los políticos de derecha y la clase multimillonaria que representa seguirían dirigiendo el programa.En otros países, en tiempos más revolucionarios, la gente ha ideado procedimientos para expulsar de inmediato a los funcionarios que los traicionaron. Un buen ejemplo es la Comuna de París, que decretó que los representantes elegidos estaban sujetos a revocación en cualquier momento.En 1871, se libraba una guerra entre Francia y Prusia (Alemania). Mientras París estaba bajo el asedio de las tropas prusianas, y el ejército francés estaba preocupado y rebelde, el pueblo de París se levantó y estableció su propio gobierno, un gobierno republicano del pueblo que se conoció como la Comuna de París. Por un breve tiempo, los trabajadores de París se hicieron cargo de su propio destino.Entre los muchos pasos tomados por la Comuna para trasladar el poder político a la clase trabajadora estaba la elección directa de quienes los representarían en la Comuna, y la capacidad de retirar inmediatamente del cargo a cualquiera que no cumpliera con la voluntad del pueblo. No hubo que esperar seis años (el mandato de un senador de EE. UU.), Cuatro años (el mandato de un presidente de EE. UU.) o incluso dos años (el mandato de un representante de EE.UU.) para deshacerse de las figuras elegidas que traicionaron sus promesas. Una vez que la gente de la Comuna decidió que estos “representantes” no los representaban, quedaron fuera.La Comuna de París fue uno de los cuerpos políticos más democráticos que el mundo había visto hasta ahora. Ahora, 148 años después, en un país donde ambos partidos capitalistas afirman defender la democracia, pero de hecho sirven a los intereses de los plutócratas multimillonarios, necesitamos luchar por nada menos que el gobierno de la mayoría: el poder de los trabajadores.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
