With new jurisdictions coming online on a consistent basis and the increasing expectation of federal legalization knocking on Congress’ gates, the cannabis industry is more mature and established than it has ever been before.

While shares from some big names in cannabis like Canopy Growth CGC, Hexo Corp. HEXO or Scotts Miracle-Gro SMG are lower today than they were one year ago, others have seen significant improvements in their price action.

Among this group of yearly winners are companies that stand out for having multiplied their market caps by factors that can beat the returns of the best tech giants trading on the Nasdaq.

Coming to New York on October 14 and 15 is the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference, a 2-day hybrid gathering of cannabis entrepreneurs and investors that will feature five companies that have yielded year-over-year returns that went from doubling their returns to a nine-fold increase in stock price.
