Stocks in the green

Last week, Trulieve Cannabis (TCNNF) (TRUL), Curaleaf Holdings (CURA) (CURLF), and Acreage Holdings (ACRG-U) (ACRGF) delivered positive returns. During the period, Trulieve’s stock rose by 12.0%, while Curaleaf and Acreage have returned 8.4% and 4.7%, respectively.

Last week, Trulieve announced it reached an agreement with the Florida Department of Health after the agency specified that only the dispensaries opened after the enactment of the statewide cap will be counted for the cap calculation. Also, Trulieve signed an agreement with Blue River Extracts & Terpenes, a California-based cannabis company, to bring its terpene extracts and other branded products to Florida. These announcements appear to have led to a rise in Trulieve’s stock price.
