Quick question: What’s the hottest culinary trend this year in America?
B. Chia seeds
Well, you don’t need to be a food connoisseur to know the answer… If you’ve been following the Daily for the past two weeks, you probably answered “D.”
You see, according to the National Restaurant Association’s 2019 What’s Hot Culinary Forecast, CBD-infused foods and beverages are the flavor of the year. The other three were distant runners-up.
The survey included 650 professional chefs—all members of the American Culinary Federation. And they believe CBD creates unique cuisine opportunities and potential new markets for experiential dining.
Now, this isn’t just some passing fad like plant-based meat, veggie carb substitutes, or zero-waste cooking.
In fact, it could be one of the biggest money-making opportunities since cryptocurrencies exploded on the scene in 2016.
That’s why Daily editor and former hedge fund manager Teeka Tiwari has been pounding the table on legal cannabis like he did before cryptos took off in 2016. He’s spent the past three months looking for cannabis companies that can turn every $100 into $1,000 or more. (More on that in a moment.)
Teeka believes the CBD market could grow into a multibillion-dollar industry. And he says early investors stand to make life-changing gains if they get in now.
But you need to know which type of cannabis companies to invest in first…
The Legal Cannabis Market
Now, you’re probably familiar with one type of cannabis: marijuana (also known as pot or weed). It contains tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. It’s the psychoactive compound that makes people feel “high.”
While legal in some states, marijuana is still illegal at the federal level. As a Schedule I drug, it gets the same treatment as heroin, LSD, and ecstasy.
That’s why the National Restaurant Association warned chefs to be mindful of the type of cannabis they use in their creations:
Operators are urged to follow all laws, including applicable federal, state, and local laws that apply when selling or using those items at their restaurants.
Meanwhile, another type of cannabis is hemp. It produces cannabidiol, or CBD. Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t make you feel intoxicated.
And at the end of last year, President Trump signed an agricultural bill legalizing industrial hemp. The law lifted restrictions on the sale, transport, and possession of hemp-derived products.
That’s why chefs are free to infuse their beverages and foods with CBD.
But this is just a small slice of the legal cannabis market. Teeka says even bigger opportunities are in the industrial and pharmaceutical spaces…
Clinical studies have already proven CBD can treat childhood epilepsy. And it can serve as a natural wellness remedy for pain, inflammation, anxiety, and a whole lot more, too. So it’s no surprise people call CBD a “miracle drug.”
Plus, it’s remarkably versatile. It’s in shampoos, coffees, teas, body oils, candy, shakes, dog treats, and more… You can even walk into a store and buy CBD nowadays. But we could see even bigger profits from hemp.
You see, hemp has about 50,000 industrial uses. You can use it to make clothes, paper, and biodegradable plastics. So we’ll see a lot of hemp and CBD added to thousands of products.
The U.S. Hemp Crop Report even shows acreage of hemp cultivation more than tripled from 2017 to 2018. And according to Grand View Research, the global industrial hemp market size will grow at an annual rate of 14% from now until 2025.
So as you can see, CBD won’t be just a passing fancy like activated charcoal halloumi burgers… algae smoothies… or liquid nitrogen cocktails. (Yes, those are all real food and beverage concoctions.)
Instead, it’ll be a multibillion-dollar industry…
According to Merrill Lynch, legal cannabis is disrupting markets generating $2.6 trillion per year in revenue. And we believe that if it captures even a fraction of these markets, it’s set to become a $260 billion market—practically overnight.
You don’t need to be a chef to see the profit potential ahead…
Leveling the Playing Field
At the Daily, we’re always looking for ideas to level the playing field between Wall Street and Main Street.
And early on, Teeka saw the potential to help people build wealth from very small stakes with cryptos. As a result, he’s helped readers get in on the boom and lock in extraordinary profits along the way.
For instance, people who invested when he recommended bitcoin, ether, and Monero in 2016 would be sitting on gains of 1,798%, 1,298%, and 704%, respectively, today.
But the key to making these kinds of gains is identifying the trend before the mainstream—and finding early-stage projects within it with exponential growth potential.
Over the next few years, the legal cannabis market will be worth at least a quarter-trillion dollars. That’s a huge trend. Yet there are over 400 companies in the space.

P.S. Like I mentioned above, Teeka’s spent the past three months scouring North America for the best legal cannabis ideas. And if you’re looking to get in on the ground floor, I urge you to tune into his free Pocket Change Millionaire Summit.
We can’t reveal too much about it since it’s a limited venture. You see, it’s a “sweetheart” deal in a market previously reserved for the wealthy. But Teeka’s uncovered a loophole allowing ordinary investors access.
The summit airs at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, June 26. And you can automatically reserve your spot to attend his exclusive event right here.
