For investors who understand the risk and have patience, marijuana penny stocks offer some of the biggest potential profits today.
For example, shares of Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTCMKTS: REFG) have climbed 71.3% in the last 12 months. Shares of OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (OTCMKTS: OGRMF) have done even better, skyrocketing 105.45% over the last 12 months.
In comparison, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is only up 18.07%.
To help investors find these explosive profits, we're giving you a list of marijuana stocks to watch in June.
However, investing in marijuana penny stocks should be treated as speculative right now because cannabis is still illegal under federal law.
Also, penny stocks are known to have volatile price swings, and most pot stocks trade on over-the-counter markets that aren't regulated like the Nasdaq or NYSE. The stocks on our list are speculative, too - not official recommendations.
These seven companies have recently launched new products, opened stores, conducted research and development, or made important announcements that could lead to an increase in sales.
Here are the seven pot stocks on our radar right now:
|Company||Stock Symbol||Price as of May 31|
|Earth Science Tech Inc.||ETST||$0.90|
|GB Sciences Inc.||GBLX||$0.28|
|Kaya Holdings Inc.||KAYS||$0.17|
|Lexaria Bioscience Corp.||LXRP||$0.37|
|Signal Bay Inc.||SGBY||$0.02|
Now, here's more on why we're watching each of these stocks in June...
Marijuana Penny Stocks to Watch, No. 7: Digipath Inc.
On May 12, cannabis lab testing service Digipath Inc. (OTCMKTS: DIGP) announced operating results for the three months leading up to March 31, 2017. The testing laboratory firm recorded $497,049 in net sales, which is a year-over-year increase of 252%.
And the sales could continue to increase after July 1, 2017, when Nevada legalizes marijuana.
Because Digipath is based in Las Vegas, it's already operating in the next state to legalize marijuana. On top of that, DIGP is also seeking to enter the California marijuana market for lab testing.
Shares of DIGP closed at $0.19 per share on May 31 and are down 93.42% so far in 2017.

Earth Science Tech Inc. (OTCMKTS: ETST) is on our watch list for June because of a new product line. On May 18, the biotechnology company announced it will launch an "Orange Blossom" cannabidiol (CBD) oil product.

The company said in a press release that the natural strawberry flavoring and orange blossom honey in the oil masks the CBD oil taste, which can be very bitter.
And this new product could give Earth Science a leg up on the competition in a billion-dollar market. According to the Hemp Business Journal, the CBD market will be worth $2.1 billion.
Shares of ETST closed at $0.90 per share on May 31 and are down 54.77% so far in 2017.
