In general, this means all US MSOs are now restricted from investors that use JP Morgan’s services. Because US cannabis companies are still federally illegal, they are not able to trade on major US stock exchanges. This has left the US cannabis sector with a limited pool of retail traders to invest in American companies. JP Morgan is following other banking companies that have recently taken similar action including Credit Suisse.
Other trading apps like the popular Robinhood Markets, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOOD) also prohibit their users from trading OTC stocks denying access to top US cannabis stocks from a large pool of retail investors. But there are some US cannabis companies that trade on the major exchanges. Ancillary cannabis stocks are those companies that support the cannabis market without touching the actual plant. Because they trade on the major exchanges they may not be affected by recent restrictions.
