Monday, 18 March 2019 A number of new cannabis players were added to the quarterly rebalance of the Horizon Marijuana Life Sciences Index (HMMJ) ETF on Monday.

Companies added to the list include: Flowr Corp (CVE:FLWR), Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp (CSE:CANN), ICC International Cannabis Corp (CSE:WRLD.U), Zenabis Global Ltd (CVE:ZENA), PharmaCielo Ltd (CVE:PCLO) and Westleaf Inc (CVE:WL).

"HMMJ is the best-performing equity ETF in Canada, with a year-to-date return of 58.95%*, as at last Friday's close," said Steve Hawkins, President and CEO of Horizons ETFs. "As the number of listings and the market-capitalization of cannabis stocks continues to grow so dramatically, so too have the number of eligible issuers to be included in HMMJ. This is why the ETF has added 10 new names to its portfolio, bringing the total number of investee companies in HMMJ to 59." HMMJ is rebalanced each quarter and is an Index ETF that seeks to replicate the performance of the North American Marijuana Index. The index is designed to provide investors with exposure to a basket of North American publicly listed life sciences companies with significant business activities in the cannabis industry.
