Lastly, one could consider investing in a streaming company such as the Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp (TSXV:CBW) that, time of writing, already had 16 streaming deals with 14 companies including four Licensed Producers: Harvest One Cannabis Inc, Green ReLeaf, Evergreen Medicinal Supplies, and Broken Coast.

The South American country had already legalized cultivation, distribution and consumption of marijuana in 2013 but authorization for pharmacies has not been secured until now. "Cannabis will be dispensed in pharmacies starting in the month of July," President of the National Drug Board Juan Andres Roballo told a press conference Thursday. Under the law, buyers must sign up for a national registry of marijuana users and cannot exceed the monthly maximum purchase of 40 grams.

There are LPs with either a foot in the German market or with plans for international expansion (that may include Germany).
