Life has been hard these past few months for many people, but for Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ), it was well-positioned to thrive in this environment. In the face of widespread business disruptions, Constellation still managed to grow its free cash flow 24% year over year in the fiscal first quarter (ended May 31) as revenue declined 6%. As a result, Constellation Brands has the liquidity and strength to pump investment dollars into its next major growth projects: hard seltzer and cannabis.
Canopy Growth (NYSE: CGC) and Aurora Cannabis (NYSE: ACB) are among the biggest names in the cannabis industry. It shouldn't be all that surprising to investors that Canopy Growth sees beverages as a key part of its strategy, given that beer maker Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ) owns a 39% stake in the company.
With tens of billions of dollars in sales being conducted annually in the black market, it seemed only logical that Canada legalizing adult-use weed and more U.S. states waving the green flag on cannabis would lead to exceptional legal-channel sales growth. There's little question that the cannabis industry is going to deliver big-time returns in the years to come.

Many of the largest cannabis players were having a tough 2020 before the economic wallop of COVID-19.

Today, I'll look at two of the top pot stocks in the industry -- Aphria (NASDAQ: APHA) and Canopy Growth (NYSE: CGC) -- and assess which of these leading cannabis producers is the better stock to hold in your portfolio. One of the ways Aphria has established itself as one of the safer stocks in the industry is by being able to stay in the black on a relatively consistent basis. In its most recent quarterly results, which the company released on April 14, Aphria posted a net income of 5.7 million Canadian dollars on net revenue of CA$144.4 million.
