The COVID-19 pandemic has affected nearly every part of the global economy, including the cannabis industry. In many U.S. states, cannabis dispensaries were designated as essential businesses. Cannabis sales boomed in some states during the first few months of the coronavirus outbreak, driven in part by more time spent at home and increased anxiety. Marijuana growers and retailers benefited, as did ancillary providers selling gardening supplies and other products to these companies.

However, not all cannabis companies have fared well in the pandemic. Recreational cannabis retailers in tourist destinations such as Las Vegas saw their customer traffic dwindle, causing some of these dispensaries to start focusing on home delivery. In the medical segment, people delayed doctor visits, causing new patient starts to drop. Biotech companies experienced logistical challenges that affected sales and research progress.

Trulieve Cannabis (OTC:TCNNF) is a cannabis grower and retailer that focuses primarily on the Florida medical marijuana market. The company dominates in the Sunshine State by accounting for nearly 50% of total cannabis sales and has been consistently profitable since 2017 — an achievement few other marijuana companies can claim. Its sales and earnings also continue to soar.
Green Thumb Industries (OTC:GTBIF)owns retail cannabis stores in 12 states across the U.S. and operates 13 manufacturing facilities. Green Thumb holds licenses for 96 retail cannabis locations but has opened only a little over half that many stores.
Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE:SMG) is another company benefiting from the same trends that have boosted GrowGeneration’s sales. The company’s Hawthorne Gardening subsidiary ranks as a leading supplier of hydroponic gardening products to the cannabis industry.
There’s a reason Blue Dream is everybody’s favorite strain—its light, fun-loving vibes are at home in every scenario, whether you’re winding down after a long day or taking a vigorous, uphill hike. It’s like magic!
The feminized version of Bergman’s Gold Leaf can grow indoors but truly thrives outside, where plants grow quickly—and can reach heights above seven feet. Like its autoflower counterpart, it’s a euphoric, 60/40 hybrid that’s beginner-friendly. Its steady growth leads to high yields, too.
While its high is easy, its cultivation is not. It needs a mild, protected environment and it’s prone to pests, so indoors is ideal. Give it the right elements and you’ll have a bountiful harvest of top-shelf herb.
The outdoor grower
Cannabis can be a tricky plant to grow—it has very particular light and nutrient needs. But because they’ve worked with so many growers, ILGM knows which strains thrive indoors or in small spaces, which ones are more forgiving than others, and which ones are high-maintenance but high-reward.
Super Skunk is a heavy indica derived from Skunk #1 and Afghani genetics with super dense buds and highly pungent aroma. It’s ideal for both recreational and medicinal consumers, with relaxing effects that reduce stress, muscle aches, and joint pain.
ILGM used their expertise to pass along their best recommendations for beginners, indoor growers, outdoor growers, and experts. When you’re ready to buy your seeds, you can buy seeds and everything else you need to start growing in the ILGM shop, which ships internationally.
Gold Leaf—one of Bergman’s own seeds!—delivers a smooth smoke that puts you in a relaxed, euphoric mood. This powerful, 60/40 hybrid high is perfect for medical patients, too.
