Paxhia and Baruchowitz have <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/top-16-cannabis-venture-capital-funds-in-2020-and-where-they-invested-2020-12">been investing in cannabis</a> since 2013 and 2016, respectively.</p><p>On Thursday, April 29, Insider heard from the two veteran investors about how we should bet on the cannabis industry, especially as the US market <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/us-cannabis-market-size-projection-100-billion-by-2030-2020-12">balloons into a multi-billion dollar industry.</a> </p><p>One piece of advice they imparted was that investors should <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to-find-unnoticed-us-cannabis-companies-stocks-2021-4">look beyond the biggest players.</a></p><p>Then biggest players are safe bets, they said, but over time companies in the US have fallen into different size tiers that all have a number of good options for investors.</p><p>The companies in the lower tiers aren't there because they're any worse at operations or management than the industry's giants. They're merely smaller.</p><p>"There's another awesome tier of people who haven't quite punched through, but they're really showing some strong operations and great assets," Paxhia said.</p><p>Paxhia and Baruchowitz also both said they favor US multistate operators, or MSOs, over their Canadian counterparts because of how they've managed their operations and grown amid a capital slowdown. The frenzy of stock movements <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/cannabis-stocks-tilray-aphria-sundial-surge-on-reddit-analysis-2021-2">fueled by Reddit forum Wall Street Bets</a> hasn't been indicative of the best companies in the space, they added. </p><p>"We feel like the better companies are OTC listed, you know, US MSOs or other globally focused companies that aren't bleeding cash," said Baruchowitz. </p><p>Watch the full webinar above.</p><p><a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to-invest-in-cannabis-video-panel-poseidon-merida-2021-5#comments">Join the conversation about this story »</a></p> Click here to read full news..
