Unfortunately, none of Little Green Pharma’s gains from the announcements have managed to stick. In fact, the company’s stock has returned all its September gains and then some.

Right now, the Little Green Pharma share price is 70 cents, flat with its previous close, and 6.67% lower than its first close of this month.
