A Whole New Meaning to Munchies

  • As public opinion on cannabis shifts and more consumers embrace it as an alternative to alcohol and pain relievers, edibles seem poised to eat up the industry.

  • A recent survey found that sales of cannabis edibles and beverages rose by 10 percent over 2022, which makes sense when you consider the stigma and possible negative health effects of smoking cannabis versus merely ingesting it.

  • But how do you explain the commensurate decline in sales of other smokeless cannabis products such as tinctures, topicals, and capsules over the same time frame? The answer may be as simple as this: they’re not as much fun!

  • Cookies, chocolate, and gummies are social snacks, a dessert to enjoy with friends or a treat at the end of the workday. And for those who treat chronic pain or other ailments with cannabis, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Other reasons include how inconspicuous a cannabis brownie is compared to other cannabis products, even smokeless ones. People like discretion, especially at a time when legalization and decriminalization are happening only at the state level on a case-by-case basis. What’s more inconspicuous than sipping a seltzer or popping a mint?

  • It used to be that the novelty of legal cannabis was enough to bring in patrons, but the market is evolving, and that evolution is driven by customer demand for healthier, social, and more discreet consumables.
