Small cap stocks are stocks that have the market capitalization that ranges from $300 million to $2 billion, according to Investopedia. Contrary to how it sounds like, most small cap stocks have higher prices. What makes it small is the number of available shares.

This type of stocks allows individual investors an edge over institutional investors who make large block purchases. Large cap stock purchases only offer a small fraction of the company, unlike small cap stocks where there is a limited number of available shares. When it comes to SEC filing requirements, it is only triggered by significant purchases in small cap stocks. When individual investors make small purchases in these stocks, it rarely gets attention from the SEC.

Since the legalization of marijuana in Canada, several industry-related stocks have been gaining the spotlight. Though not only focused on the cannabis industry, here are some Canadian small cap stocks you may want to consider:

Cronos Group (CRON)

Cronos Group is one of the small cap stocks you may want to consider. This company is the first cannabis-related stock in Canada to be listed on NASDAQ and is also one of the top marijuana growers in the country’s legal cannabis market.

The company has developed a business connection globally, including Germany, Australia and Israel, and is looking to expand outside North America. CRON recently partnered with California-based retail chain MedMen. The company also dealt with Delfarma, a pharmaceutical wholesaler in Poland, and Cura, a Portland-based cannabis oil provider.

CRON has a market cap of $1 billion, making it a small cap stock, and can be purchased for around $6 per share.
