2019 is a big year for cannabis, a clear majority of Americans want to see the plant become fully legal and entrepreneurs have to stay up-to-date on leading products to capitalize on the world’s fastest-growing market.
10 years ago the most popular way of consuming cannabis was smoking the bud. However, times are changing and so are the methods of consumption.
Here are the 7 fastest growing cannabis products shaping this year’s weed market.
5. Live resin
Live resin is a type of high-THC cannabis concentrate. It’s made through a process by which the cannabis plant is frozen to preserve the terpenes, which give weed its flavor.
Between 2017 and 2018 resin sales increased 66 percent in Colorado and 128 percent in Oregon.
Vaping is a convenient and discreet way for users to consume marijuana, which is appealing to many patients and customers. Many vape pens are designed to fit in small places, such as pockets and purses, and the vapor that’s emitted is often odorless.
Sales of vapes grew 69 percent by the end of the first quarter of 2018, making vapes the fastest growing high-THC cannabis products in California.
