Weed stocks surged Monday as Canada prepares to legalize marijuana on October 17.

Canopy Growth soared more than 14%, hitting a record high of $57 a share. Rivals Tilray, Aurora Cannabis, and Cronos gained between 11% and 19%.

Also on Monday, Canopy Growth agreed to acquire the Colorado-based hemp researcher Ebbu, in a stock-and-cash deal for $425 million Canadian dollars.

Since August 2018, the pot stocks have been exploding in popularity amongst investors as several companies have explored the possibility of selling Marijuana-based products.

Last week, Walmart said its Canadian division has carried out some "preliminary fact-finding" on potentially carrying CBD (or cannabidiol) infused products. In September, Coca-Cola held talks with Aurora Cannabis to make a CBD-infused drink but was unable to reach a deal.
