No one wants to be left behind. Fashion has existed since the first person started doing something, and cannabis wasn’t the industry to buck the demands of such an event. Whether it’s painters smoking spliffs in their studios, patients with edibles, budtenders with their dab pens, or OG’s with their tinctures, every form comes with aesthetics, and all aesthetics gets judged. So what were the leading methods of consuming cannabis in 2020? According to numbers collected by BDS analytics, here’s what we can expect. These are the top four ways we think that people are consuming cannabis in 2020.
Within the last few years of cannabis legalization on the West Coast, the culture of dabbing has blown up. There are now countless options for glass rigs, bangers, special Q-tips, accessories, you name it! There have even become people that favor taking low-temperature dabs, versus people that like cold-start dabs. The innovations in cannabis concentrates have risen alongside this popularity and become as diverse as they have potent. At Diamond Green, we carry every kind of concentrate you could need. From shatter to rosin, budder, hash, wax, and live-resin we are always brimming with selections.
3. Gummy Candies
No surprise from the demographic guilty of inspiring the word “munchies”, stoners lover their sweets. Racking in almost $150 million in sales from January to May of 2019, gummy edibles dominated sales, far surpassing that of shatter, wax, or chocolate. This form of cannabis is popular with newcomers to the market, as low dose gummy edibles are one of the most common ways for people to get their first cannabis experience. They’re yummy, and controllable form of cannabis. Just make sure not to eat too much! Marmas from Magic Kitchen are the most popular gummy we sell at Diamond Green.
Worth more than three times the market share gummy candies control, around $450 million worth of vape products were sold by May of 2019. This form of using cannabis is concealable, potent, and tasty. It’s arguably the most approachable form of consuming cannabis. While the vape crisis may have slightly soured the mood around vaping, it certainly has not stopped sales.
King as always, there is no way to beat the cannabis plant. With over $750 million in sales from January to May of 2019, it’s obvious that the cannabis flower remains dominant. This is the way that the plant grows, and it’s the way that people are used to it. There’s no way that anything will be able to dethrone flower, at least not without some major shift in the industry standards or consumer demands. Read about the top strains at our store currently!
