A number of new players have been added to the monthly rebalance of The Cannabis ETF (NYSE:THCX), Innovation Shares, a provider of thematic ETFs announced on Tuesday. 

The Cannabis ETF gives investors a tool to invest in the legal marijuana and hemp industries. 

Valens GroWorks Inc (CVE:VGW) (OTCMKTS:VGWCF), EnWave (CVE:ENW), cbdMD Inc. (NYSE:YCBD) and Fire & Flower Holdings (TSE:FAF) have all been added to the portfolio. 

"We are excited to expand THCX's footprint in the various cannabis industry sub-themes by including three companies whose businesses revolve around ancillary services and CBD-based consumer products," said Matt Markiewicz, Innovation Shares managing director.

"In particular, Valens, EnWave, and cbdMD all operate at the crossroads of science and technology which should appeal to investors who are looking for differentiated exposure outside of a traditional seed-to-sale story."
