Last week, we wrote a piece on Medical Marijuana Inc (OTCMKTS:MJNA) that was extremely clear about the direction we thought this stock would go: straight down. In fact, we suggested that a catalyst that could be found capable of lifting the name would only be found “sitting on a shelf somewhere in another dimension right next to the square root of negative one.”
Since then, the stock has crashed, dropping as much as 25% on rising volume with multi-year support levels taken out by the day. To try and limit the damage, the company just announced that its subsidiary Kannaway was named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award in the Medium Company of the Year – Health Products & Services category in The 17th Annual American Business Awards. According to the release, the company was also named the winner of a Bronze Stevie Award in the Consumer Products Category for its Cannabis Beauty Defined cannabidiol (CBD) skincare line.

While this is a clear factor, it has been incorporated into a trading tape characterized by a pretty dominant offer, which hasn’t been the type of action MJNA shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -21% on above average trading volume. All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities.
In addition, the name has seen a growing influx of trading interest, with the stock’s recent average trading volume running 75% over the long run average.
“We are honored to receive these prestigious business awards for our company growth and innovative offerings,” said Kannaway® CEO Blake Schroeder. “We are thankful that we have this opportunity to showcase our accomplishments and our dedication to providing the highest-quality hemp products in the cannabis industry.”
