Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE: CGC) is Canada's fastest-growing and largest marijuana company.

Canopy has put significant investments into cannabis oil projects over the past year – and for good reason. These products produce higher profit margins, with a 107% jump in product sales that have pushed up the company's overall revenue by 30%.

These skyrocketing sales have allowed Canopy to expand internationally, with export agreements with Spain, Australia, Germany, Denmark, Brazil, Chile, and Jamaica.

As Canopy continues its aggressive expansion, corporate investors have taken notice. Constellation Brands Inc. (NYSE: STZ) had a 9.9% stake in CGC in July, and there were rumors that it was considering investing even more.

These rumors proved true when Constellation announced that it was going to invest another $5 billion in Canopy.

Having access to this type of capital gives Canopy the resources it will need to be a dominant force in the legal marijuana industry as it continues its expansion.

Canopy may even grow beyond the legal cannabis sector as national and local governments begin accepting the medicinal benefits of marijuana.
