CORAL GABLES, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 12, 2019 / The marijuana stock market has seen impressive gains over the last few weeks of the new year, with companies in the space seeing large increases in their stock prices. Recently, the market has been rapidly shifting due to the influx of new legislation being brought to light by lawmakers in support of legalization. In addition to legislative efforts, there has been an overall paradigm shift in how the public views cannabis and the companies which research, cultivate, and manufacture cannabis products. If trends remain consistent, this has the potential to attract more investors to the cannabis sector. Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC: LBUY), Tilray Inc (NASDAQ: TLRY), CannTrust Holdings Inc (OTC PINK: CNTTF), and Aurora Cannabis Inc (NYSE: ACB) are 4 pot stocks worth looking into on Tuesday.
Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC: LBUY) is one of the most comprehensive online resources for information related to cannabis and how to procure products currently available on the market. Leafbuyer works alongside cannabis businesses to showcase their unique products and build a network of loyal patrons. The Company, through its subsidiary, LB Media Group LLC, operates an online platform for trending cannabis deals and specials and has been lauded as the most comprehensive source for ascertaining cannabis-related information.
As a result of the recent shift towards consumers taking ownership in researching the brands they are interested in, Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC: LBUY) stands above its competitors. The Company's platform has been referred to as the ''priceline of pot'' by cannabis experts and analysts in the industry, because of the ease of access for consumers looking to learn, find, or research anything about the cannabis market
Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC: LBUY) today announced that the Company has expanded its operations into the emerging Oklahoma medical cannabis market. Back in June 2018, Oklahoma voters passed legislation in favor of legalizing medical marijuana. Following the vote, patients can now register for medical marijuana and be authorized for any condition a doctor deems necessary.
Following this announcement, Leafbuyer Technologies Inc (OTC: LBUY)'s CEO, Kurt Rossner, commented, ''we see major potential in the Oklahoma market to help boost the growth of our company. Through marketing and advertising initiatives, we have nearly three dozen dispensaries utilizing our marketing services after just two weeks of in-state contact. Along with sales, we're focusing our efforts on broadcast and out of home marketing channels to help drive traffic to the site and, ultimately, put consumers inside our dispensary clients' businesses.''
Tilray Inc (TLRY) rose above other companies in the cannabis sector by enjoying a 1.76% boost in late-morning trading on Tuesday, with shares trading at $76.75 per share.

Following the announcement of the new appointees, Tilray's CEO, Brendan Kennedy, said, ''the expansion of our European senior leadership team strengthens Tilray's ability to enter into new addressable markets and solidify our presence in existing European markets. Greg, Rita, Dara and Charlie come to Tilray with robust expertise in their respective fields and we look forward to their contributions as we pioneer the future of cannabis around the world.''
CannTrust Holdings Inc (CNTTF), one of Canada's leading producers of cannabis, announced in late-January that the Company had obtained the necessary permitting from the Town of Pelham to proceed with its Phase III expansion with the construction process set to commence immediately.
