Proving once again that the legalized cannabis market is recession-proof, investors bought up marijuana stocks like crazy on a day when the major U.S. market indexes were deep in the red. It was incredible to witness a tale of two markets as cannabis soared while the blue-chips soured:
What was the cause of such celebration in the cannabis stock niche? The big boost is driven by an announced partnership between cannabis company Tilray Inc. and Budweiser beer maker Anheuser-Busch InBev. In this, the most recent collaboration between a marijuana company and an alcohol or tobacco mega-corporation, Tilray and AB Inbev have agreed to work together to research nonalcoholic cannabis-infused beverages.
AB InBev and Tilray will each invest $50 million toward the deal, in which they will explore the potential of beverages containing cannabis components THC and CBD: “We intend to develop a deeper understanding of non-alcohol beverages containing THC and CBD that will guide future decisions about potential commercial opportunities,” stated Kyle Norrington, President of AB InBev subsidiary Labatt Breweries of Canada.
This move is emblematic of a recent trend of alcohol and tobacco corporations jumping into the legalized cannabis space. Within the past year, we’ve reported on Constellation Brands pouring $4 billion into Canopy Growth Corp., Molson Coors embarking on a joint venture with Hexo Group for CBD/THC beverages, and Marlboro maker Altria taking $1.8 billion stake in Cronos Group.
The Tilray-AB InBev joint venture is yet another sign that multibillion-dollar corporations are aggressively entering into the legalized cannabis space with comparatively small companies. With cigarette and alcohol sales on the decline among millennials and cannabis sales on the rise, these massive companies see that the future is in cannabis and they want in.
The announcement of the Tilray-AB InBev agreement came just a day and a half after Tilray had already put cannabis in the spotlight by signing a “global collaboration agreement” with Sandoz, a division of Swiss drug giant Novartis. In that deal, the two companies agreed to commercialize Tilray’s non-smokable medical marijuana offerings, co-brand certain products, develop new products, and educate pharmacists and physicians about cannabis.
Cannabis stocks jumped on the day of the Tilray-Novartis deal, and now they’re soaring with the Tilray-AB InBev joint venture because it’s an acknowledgment of what Future Money Trends has been reporting on for years: cannabis-infused beverages are a huge market and small to mid-sized marijuana companies are set to outperform in an increasingly cannabis-friendly world.

While keeping tabs on more expensive stocks like Tilray, which already have their future growth priced in, I’ll be positioning myself for outstanding gains in 2019 with carefully selected smaller companies in the legalized cannabis space. Just as Tilray stock was inexpensive not long ago, tomorrow’s superstars are affordably priced today.
One company I’m looking at right now is KOIOS Beverage Corp. (CSE:KBEV, OTC:SNOVF), a beverage company whose ingredients are specifically designed to target brain function by increasing blood flow, oxygen levels, and neural connections to the brain. Among KOIOS’ offerings are a suite of beverages with hemp oil added: these are non-THC hemp oil infusions that contain a health-enhancing balance of omega-3 and omega-6 acids for optimal body and brain function.
Another company on my radar is ICC International Cannabis Corp. (CSE:WRLD, OTC:KNHBF), a vertically integrated company that specializes in the acquisition and operation of cannabis assets worldwide. Through their diversified portfolio of companies and subsidiaries, ICC is quickly establishing itself as a global cannabis industry consolidation platform with an undisputed market footprint in the emerging cannabis markets of Greece, Colombia, the Kingdom of Lesotho, Africa, and Denmark.
I’ve also got my eye on TILT Holdings Inc. (CSE:TILT, OTC:SVVTF), whose broad-based network comprises over 1,000 dispensaries throughout 25 U.S. states, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica. A rapidly expanding company, TILT is diversified in the most lucrative areas of the North American legalized cannabis market: software, analytics, construction, capital support, intellectual property management, and more.
