Cannabiz Media has worked with Wells Fargo’s equity research team to conduct one of the most comprehensive outreach programs to cannabis growers. We contacted thousands of growers to develop a list of approximately 500 licensed cannabis growers in six states. They were contacted by e-mail and telephone surveys.

The main conclusion for Wells Fargo is that “this recovery will take longer” and has implications for the hydroponics sector for the second half of 2022. Wells Fargo downgraded Scotts Miracle Grow shares to equal weight and lowered the price targets on Grow Generation and Hydrofarm Holdings Group.
