According to MarijuanaIndex.com: “The U.S. Marijuana Index tracks the leading cannabis stocks operating in the United States. Constituents must have a business strategy focused on the marijuana or hemp industry, and are required to meet our minimum trading criteria.” The Index is “equal-weighted and rebalanced quarterly.”
