Are CBD-Infused Beverages The Next Big Thing?

The trend of infusing various beverages continues to grow, but to know if you want to sell these types of products in your shop, you first need to understand the trends and why they appeal to consumers.

For the last few years, consumers have been gravitating towards edibles. This is true for both the THC and CBD markets, and it applies to all age ranges. It also includes more than just food, with CBD beverages making up for a large part of the market demand.

What Is CBG And How Does It Differ From CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD products have hit shelves in droves since Congress made hemp legal with the 2018 Farm Bill. Derived from the hemp plant, advocates herald CBD as a potentially strong treatment for issues such as inflammation and pain management.

But what if there was a cannabinoid that did the job even better?

That’s the claim, by some, for cannabigerol or CBG. According to New Jersey.com, CBG has been called “a better anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety treatment than CBD or marijuana,” partly because it’s less likely to make the user groggy or paranoid.

Hemp: Marijuana or not marijuana?

Since the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill in December, 2018, significant attention has been paid to the differences between hemp and marijuana. Most reasoning comes down to the level of THC as the differentiating factor. But there is so much more going on here.

Hemp and marijuana are, in fact, two different plants in the same species of three different types of marijuana: cannabis sativa, cannabis indica, and cannabis ruderalis.

Is cannabis to blame for slumping beer sales?

Canada’s beer business is looking a little flat.

The industry experienced its largest drop in sales in seven years in 2019, with domestic and imported beer purchases falling by 3 percent from the previous year, according to Marijuana Business Daily.

Domestic beer felt the brunt of the decline, with sales dropping in each of the final eight months of the year and in 11 out of 12 months in 2019.

Sales in December stood at 68,000 hectolitres (hL), down 4 percent from the same month in 2018. Marijuana sales, on the other hand, have been moving in the opposite direction.

A new ‘hemp scanner’ determines level of THC in cannabis plants

A team of researchers have created a ‘hemp scanner’ that can determine the level of THC in cannabis plants instantly, without damaging any of the product.

Hemp is technically legal in Texas, but proving that hemp is not cannabis can be a hurdle, requiring testing in a licensed laboratory. So, when a truck carrying thousands of pounds of hemp was recently detained by law enforcement near Amarillo, the driver spent weeks in jail awaiting confirmation that the cargo was legal.

Stories like that one inspired a team of Texas A&M AgriLife researchers to create a “hemp scanner” that can distinguish hemp and cannabis instantly, without damaging any of the product.

Study Shows What You Eat Changes the Effects of Cannabis

Cannabis and food go together better than many other things in life. 

Most cannabis consumers and patients will be quick to point out that cannabis stimulates appetite and that consuming cannabis prior to eating often makes meals and snacks more enjoyable.

Less attention is paid to eating food prior to cannabis consumption, and what impact, if any, it can have on the cannabis consumption experience and the effects of cannabis on the consumer/patient.

A new study out of Canada explored the idea and what they found could have a major impact on consumer and patient consumption habits and strategies.

CBD Toothpaste Might Be Better Than Your Current Brand, Research Says

In recent years, the craze over CBD – cannabidiol – one of the more popular and well-known cannabinoids of the cannabis plant, has led to a massive uptick in research into its medical properties.
