General Cannabis Corp (OTCMKTS:CANN) is a penny play in the cannabis space that continues to be a top trading vehicle for OTC players. The company recently put out word that its Form S-1 resale registration statement relating to the sale of up to 9,000,000 shares of the common stock of the Company by certain selling securities holders was declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. This is likely weighing on shares of the stock in January.
According to the release, the S-1 will, while effective, permit the selling security holders of General Cannabis to resell shares of common stock of the Company issuable upon exercise of warrants, as described in the registration statement, subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

As noted in the company’s recent release, CANN will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the common shares by the selling security holders. Upon the cash exercise of the warrants, General Cannabis will receive the exercise price of the warrants. The S-1 resale registration statement does not necessitate that the selling security holders sell any shares of common stock acquired as a result of exercising the warrants.
The path to cash from warrants can create a hiccup in a stock’s common share market when it involves such a large position in such a small float stock. However, as we noted last time, we are quickly approaching a real proof-in-the-pudding quarter for the stock. We should get another chance to look under the hood very soon.
We’ve witnessed 28% tacked on to share pricing for the name in the past month, a bounce that has taken root amid largely bearish action over the larger time frame. However, CANN is a stock who’s past is littered with sudden rips. Furthermore, the name has seen interest climb, with an increase in recent trading volume of 12% beyond what we have been seeing over the larger time frame.
It pays to take note of this fact with the stock trading on a float that is extremely small at just 9.2M shares. As savvy traders are well aware, a mechanically driven price squeeze can result from this type of mix of small float and ramping attention from traders.
Now commanding a market cap of $41.7M, CANN has a stash ($1.1M) of cash on the books, which stands against about $1.3M in total current liabilities. CANN is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $2.9M. In addition, the company is seeing major top line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 36.6%. We will update the story again soon as further details emerge.
