The Zelda Therapeutics Ltd share price is down 7%

The Zelda Therapeutics Ltd (ASX: ZLD) share price has been one of the worst performing shares on the market today.

In afternoon trade the medicinal cannabis company’s shares are down almost 7% to 7 cents.

Why has it fallen?

Today’s decline appears to be a case of profit taking. After all, Zelda’s shares rallied strongly towards the start of June after it announced a strategic manufacturing and distribution agreement with Chile-based Knop Laboratorios.

As well as locking in a high quality supply of Zelda’s formulated medicinal-cannabis medicines for its upcoming clinical trials, investors appeared to be pleased that the agreement secured a scalable and GMP-grade source of commercial quantities following product registration.

Zelda’s trials are focused on insomnia, eczema and autism. Results for its insomnia and eczema trials are expected to be released by the end of the year.

Here’s a recent review of listed shares in the growing pot stock industry.

5 stocks under $5

We hear it over and over from investors, "I wish I had bought Altium or Afterpay when they were first recommended by The Motley Fool. I'd be sitting on a gold mine!" And it's true.

And while Altium and Afterpay have had a good run, we think these 5 other stocks are screaming buys. And you can buy them now for less than $5 a share!
