The cannabis edibles market has exploded all across the United States. In fact, estimates point out that by 2022 it will become a $4.1 billion market. From infused beverages to chocolates to candies, edibles are due for a major glow up. As their popularity increases as does the range of options to choose from. Some people prefer to make their own edibles, opting for things like cannabutter, cannaoil, cannabis tea, and brownies. These are some of the classics that have been around for many, many years.
Currently, there are 33 states in the U.S. with medical use sanctioned and 11 states with recreational use affirmed. In addition, there are 9 states with important legislation decisions to be made this year. So, what does that mean for the edibles market? Growth, growth, growth. The expansion of the market means enhanced creativity and innovation. The following are some of the most delicious and exciting cannabis edibles available today:
- Elderberry Gummies
- Keef Sparkling H2O
- Peanut Butter Bites
- S’mores Brownies
- Red Velvet Cookies
- Rainier Cherry Lemonade
- Rice Krispy Treats
- Hubby Bars
- Cotton Candy
As more and more states legalize cannabis both medicinally and recreationally, the industry as a whole will benefit. Legal edibles are already showcasing some early trends in the market. For instance, buyers are most interested in low-dose products that can help with things like relaxation, sleep, and even increasing energy. In this regard, gummies are by and far the most popular product choice.
Like any “next big thing” market, big brands are already dipping their toes into the edibles world in order to gauge how they can best take advantage. Big brands like Coca-Cola, Carl’s Jr., Molson Coors, Anheuser Busch, and Constellation Brands have all exercised some interest. The cannabis-infused beverage market will likely be one of the first in the edibles arena to really boom. These companies certainly hope to be on the cutting-edge of the big boom in weed drinks.
No matter what the future holds for the cannabis edibles market, we can say with certainty that innovation will drive sales. The cannabis business is moving at an extremely fast pace and that means that the winners will be those who are able to not only set themselves apart from the competition, but have the foresight to dictate industry trends and preferences.
