Investing in Cannabis with Alternative Harvest ETF

Investing in Cannabis…sounds like a great idea right?  But where does one start?  That was the question I have had for a while now.  I know you can sign up for a E-Trade account and start trading penny stocks with a $500 investment.  But is that really a good investment? I know a lot of us are not investing in our future because they don’t know where to start.

Investing Your Money

So you know that creepy feeling when you are scrolling through social media and you see an ad pop up in your timeline for a service our product that you were talking about but never actually searched for?  That happened to me last while surfing the Twitters.  I see an add come up talking about “Round up your purchases into investments” for a company called Acorns.  Cool idea….you make a purchase with your debit card for $4.20, Acorns will round up the purchase to $5.00, take .80 cents and invest it.  Pretty cool idea right?  You can sign up for an Acorns Account Here

Please use the link above if you sign up, we get a referral bonus for it!  (Thanks in advance)  We signed up for an Acorns account and will see how it goes.  That rounded up change could make a difference 15-20 years down the road.



Alternative Harvest ETF

After doing some research on Acorns I found Stash.  Stash is a more hands on approach to investing and this is where we found Alternative Harvest ETF.  So…first off…you need to know what a ETF or Exchange Traded Fund.  Here is a link to read more about ETF’s

A quick definition of a ETF

An ETF, or exchange-traded fund, is a marketable security that tracks an index, a commodity, bonds, or a basket of assets like an index fund. Unlike mutual funds, an ETF trades like a common stock on a stock exchange. ETFs experience price changes throughout the day as they are bought and sold. ETFs typically have higher daily liquidity and lower fees than mutual fund shares, making them an attractive alternative for individual investors.

Because it trades like a stock, an ETF does not have its net asset value (NAV) calculated once at the end of every day like a mutual fund does.

So yeah blah blah blah….That doesn’t mean a whole lot to a new investor I get it.  Please read, watch some YouTube Videos and get yourself informed on ETF’s before you star investing.

That brings me to Alternative Harvest ETF.  Alternative Harvest ETF is a publicly traded stock that goes by MJ.  Alternative Harvest ETF is a group of cannabis industry stocks that act as one trade-able, sell-able stock.  Read more about it here

This is a very high risk stock, so do your homework.  I am investing small amounts at a time into Alternative Harvest ETF, but also spreading out my investments to other ETF’s that Stash offers.

As you can see the ETF has had it’s ups and downs.  It has only been traded for a year or so.  This is an aggressive stock that has high risk/high reward payoffs.  Just remember you could lose all the money you invest too, so diversify that portfolio.


Cannabis Stocks

Alternative Harvest ETF combines some of the largest cannabis companies in the space.  Companies that you will be investing includes:

GW Pharmaceuticals

MedReleaf Corp

Canopy Growth Corp

Just to name a few.  Get the whole list at

Again, DO YOUR HOMEWORK!  There is potential to lose all of the money you invest with Stash.  An also remember, investing in cannabis is going to be a marathon, not a sprint.  These investments will hopefully pay off over time so you have to be patient.

How do I Join The Smoke Network Step By Step Guide

We keep telling people that they need to join the Smoke.Network but not everyone understands how do get signed up.  Well being the nice stoners that we are, we are going to guide you on how to sign up.

Do You SteemIt Bro?

First step you need to do is get signed up with SteemIt.  If you don’t know SteemIt, well you are in the right place.  It is a decentralized form of social media that isn’t regulated or censored like a Facebook or Instagram.  Yes that does mean that doucheweeds can go on there and post bullshit.  But that bullshit won’t be popular, won’t get upvoted (similar to a like on FB or IG) and it will got lost in SteemIt obscurity.

Hurry Up and Wait

So our Buddy Trez Mala is the one who told us about SteemIt.  He told us almost a year ago that we need to get on there.  So after our interview we did for the first podcast episode, I logged on to and took the plunge.  And then we wait…and wait and….well you get the picture.  In our world of instant gratification when you sign up for something, you get an email, confirm and go.  SteemIt does exactly work that way.


After a few days of waiting I tried to contact SteemIt via Facebook and Email with no luck.  A week had passed and still nothing.  We started googling around and found a decent thread about getting signed up with SteemIt.   With boring everyone with the all of the details we will try and make it short and sweet.

“Steem is a cryptocurrency used to power the platform Steemit – an incentivized blockchain social media platform. ”

It actually costs Steem (see above) to create your account.  When there is a enough Steem available to create your account, you will be sent a confirmation email.  For us it took 2 weeks.  From our Steem Expert Trez, he said he knew a hand full of folks that were approved the same day we were.

No Content Censorship Here

How many Instagram accounts have you seen in the bio, Deleted at 25K or 60K or even worse? These people worked hard for those followers. Building a network just to have it all taken away because someone was butt hurt over a post and they reported it. Is there a “snitches get stitches” in the virtual world? That is the problem, people hide behind a keyboard and can cause real damage just because they have a problem with a company or brand. And usually the beef is something that really is minor but it can escalte due to the internet. Smoke.Network prides itself on being a immutable decentralized blockchain that is tailored to the needs and wants of the cannabis community, that’s us!

This is a very exciting time to be a part of the cannabis community and Las Vegas. It doesn’t look like pricing will be dropping anytime soon in Las Vegas either. Supply is low and demand is high, no reason for these dispensaries to run deals or discounts because the can get away charging whatever they want.
