Additionally, AgraFlora Organics International Inc (CSE:AGRA), Cannara Biotech Inc (CSE:LOVE), Charlotte's Web Holdings Inc (CSE:CWEB) and 48North Cannabis Corp (CVE:NRTH) were added to the portfolio. 

"HMMJ is the best-performing equity ETF in Canada, with a year-to-date return of 58.95%*, as at last Friday's close," said Steve Hawkins, President and CEO of Horizons ETFs. "As the number of listings and the market-capitalization of cannabis stocks continues to grow so dramatically, so too have the number of eligible issuers to be included in HMMJ. This is why the ETF has added 10 new names to its portfolio, bringing the total number of investee companies in HMMJ to 59."
