Sober January Leads To Boost In Cannabis Infused Beverages

While many consumers put down the bottle this month for Sober January, some have picked up a cannabis-infused beverage instead causing sales to rise in this emerging category. The market experienced a similar substitution as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic which has been notable for its effect on the respiratory system.

THC vs CBD: Differences and Benefits

Cannabis contains more than 100 cannabinoids. However, there are two that are the main and the most popular ones. These two cannabinoids differ in effects and legal status. We talk about THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). Each one produces something different and contributes both to the sensation that marijuana produces and its therapeutic applications. Knowing both compounds allows you to better choose the variety when growing, as well as knowing what to look for according to whether you want something recreational or medicinal.

They also found uses for hemp that included making fabric, rope, and ship sails.
