On Monday, oil prices fell to a four-month low after a sharp decline in Chinese stock markets and on more evidence of a worldwide oil supply surplus that has cut prices in half over the last year. Chinese stocks declined more than 8% on Monday, the largest one day fall in eight years, among renewed fears about the future for the world’s second-biggest economy. Carsten Fritsch, senior oil market analyst at Commerzbank in Germany stated, “Today’s oil price fall has been driven by the slump in Chinese stock markets.” Now with that being said, there is one sector of the market that has been able to thrive throughout these rough global economic issues and that is the Cannabis space.
