Five Cannabis Trends to Watch in 2021
Four more states legalized recreational weed in the last election. New Jersey, Arizona, South Dakota, and Montana joined the ranks, and now a total of 15 states, plus Washington D.C., allow their residents to legally spark up. This is good news for everyone who loves trying new ways to get high.
One of the best things about legalized weed is all of the new and innovative pot products that are released every year. As the market broadens, so does the availability of interesting cannabis products. The market is driving strong competition, which is good for the consumer who loves to try something new. We let the cannabis companies do all the work while we sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Keep an eye out for cannabis innovations like these in 2021:
1) Drink Up
Cannabis infused drinks have been available for a while, but they’re about to explode. Some people love the high they get from them, and they work much faster than edibles. Beverage and weed companies are putting out new beverages constantly, trying to get their piece of the drinkable weed market. Both THC and CBD are being used to produce a variety of drinkable cannabis products.
Look for even more options in teas, powdered drinks, sparkling waters, and flavored sodas. More energy drinks that combine THC and caffeine are coming out, which sounds like a crazy combination to me.
A few of the big cannabis companies have acquired beer companies in 2020, so look out for some interesting hybrids to come in 2021.
2) CBN Supplements
CBN, also known as cannabinol, is a lesser-known cannabinoid. Unlike THC, CBN produces a sedative, calming effect for users. Be on the lookout for CBN supplements marketed as anti-anxiety or sleep aids.
3) More Medical Uses
As research into the medical uses of pot continues, more and more evidence is suggesting that it can be used for a variety of ailments. We might see topical CBD creams introduced in 2021 that can be used to treat infections.
4) High Destinations for Travel
We’re all hoping to get back to travel in 2021, and so are the many weed-themed travel destinations. There are spas, hotels, poolhalls, bars, cafes, and tours across the country and around the world, all dedicated to the enjoyment of weed. CBD spa treatments, restaurants that specialize in gourmet weed-infused food and farm-to-blunt tours are all banking on the pandemic to ease off and high-travel to take off.
5) Toking Tech
New tech seems to be in everything we do these days. Of course, the tech industry hasn’t left cannabis alone. Pod-based vaporizers make getting high as easy as making a cup of coffee. Bluetooth potency monitors make sure you don’t overcook anyone with your homemade edibles. Home grow-op systems make it easier for anyone to successfully grow their own bud. Tech is on the pot bandwagon, so expect even more wild must-haves to emerge in 2021.
However you like to get high, you’ll definitely have even more choice in 2021. Visit our website for more information.
