Cannabis is becoming more and more accepted in today’s society. According to a recent study by Pew Research, 61% of the US population supports legalizing marijuana. In addition, in some parts of the country, you can purchase recreational cannabis in dispensaries.
The cannabis industry has grown massively in the past decade, and there are new trends on the horizon that will further change this growing sector. Keep reading to discover more about how the cannabis industry is evolving.
Cannabis beverages are a convenient and healthy way to consume cannabis. They provide a different experience than edibles do. They’re more social and can be drunk in public spaces, whereas smoking attracts attention.
The high is similar to edibles but takes effect much faster since it travels through your body via your bloodstream rather than through your digestive system.
Cannabis cocktails are often the choice for those who want a more social experience with their cannabis consumption. They’re also great for first-time consumers. Taking CBD and THC in liquid form—often in a shared cocktail—allows people to relax, have fun, and perhaps even have deeper conversations.
Cannabis cocktails can be enjoyed at home or at special events that feature cannabis-infused cocktails on the menu. Some of these concoctions contain cannabinoids, while others are paired with cannabis products like flowers or hashish.
There are many recipes online to explore if you want to try making your cannabis cocktail at home.
The new cannabis sodas are bubbly, non-alcoholic, and contain no calories, sugar, carbs, artificial ingredients, preservatives, sodium, or gluten. They also don’t have caffeine or artificial sweeteners or flavors.
Weed-infused tea is the new trend in cannabis consumption. It’s an excellent way to have a little bit of weed at any time, and it can be consumed by people who don’t like the taste of marijuana. The tea can be made either with dried or fresh cannabis.
In addition to being an alternative method of consuming weed, cannabis tea has many health benefits. One of them is that it helps you sleep without knocking you out completely—it relaxes your mind to fall asleep quickly.
Another advantage is that it relieves cramps and helps relieve pain from arthritis when used topically. It also eases inflammation and headaches due to stress.
These bars offer customers a space to consume their products and allow them to try new offerings on-site; they’re very convenient for consumers. At night, consumers can enjoy unique amenities such as a glow-in-the-dark bong, making smoking fun.
Additionally, because the atmosphere at these establishments will likely be diverse and accepting (and not just limited to people looking for a good time), they have the potential to create welcoming spaces that encourage community growth.
Hollywood is working on a cannabis movie starring Michael B. Jordan. According to Deadline, Michael B. Jordan will produce and star in an upcoming film called “Rememory,” which follows a homicide detective investigating the murder of an inventor trying to make people remember things differently with the help of cannabis edibles and vaporizers.
Major stars are interested in being involved in cannabis movies. According to Variety, Anthony Mackie and Jamie Foxx were attached at one point or another to starring roles in “The Pale Blue Eye,” a film about Edgar Allen Poe solving crimes while using cannabis vaporizers.
Edible Delivery Services
You don’t have to leave your home with edible delivery services to enjoy a laissez-faire high. Instead, you can order your stash and deliver it right to your doorstep. This is especially helpful for people stuck at home or who lack the ability or desire to travel somewhere in person. Edible delivery systems are growing in popularity as more and more states legalize cannabis use.
Continuously Evolving Innovations
The cannabis industry is changing. No longer are consumers solely going to the pot dealer down the street to get their fix. Instead, they’re purchasing from dispensaries and other commercial retailers, with a greater variety of products available than ever before.
Products including cough drops infused with THC and CBD, terpene-rich topicals for skincare, bath bombs made from actual cannabis (not just hemp), and even “breathable” THC are becoming the norm for consumers in 2022.
Accordingly, companies that aren’t changing up their product lineups for cannabis are likely to be blotted out in 2022—and as an investor or consumer of these products, you’ll want to keep a close eye on this moving forward.
