KuschCo stock fell by 63% in June. So far in July, the stock has risen by 5.1%. Most cannabis companies, specifically US cannabis companies, reported good results in their recent quarters due to rising sales amid the pandemic. The stock enjoyed some gains although there’s skepticism after Canopy Growth and Acreage’s amended acquisition deal.

The deal showed the marijuana industry’s distress. The issues were present even before the pandemic. However, a few companies like Curaleaf (OTCMKTS:CURLF) and Green Thumb have been expanding amid the crisis. Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) has also been raising cash to expand and execute its growth strategies. 

Meanwhile, Canadian cannabis companies have been cutting costs, laying off employees, and shutting down plants to reduce capital expenditures and conserve cash. Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB) made some restricting changes, while OrganiGram (NASDAQ:OGI) laid off 220 employees to reduce expenses. OrganiGram also delayed its third-quarter earnings to July 21.

So far in July, Aurora Cannabis stock has fallen 1.9%, while OrganiGram hasn’t gained or lost. Meanwhile, Curaleaf has fallen 4.1%, while Green Thumb has gained 0.33%, respectively.
