Is the Edibles Market The Future Of Cannabis?
With the rise of the cannabis industry comes new and exciting products. We are seeing everything from marijuana infused tampons (yes, this is real) to highly concentrated CBD oils. However, one particular sector is doing very well. The cannabis industry’s edibles market.
Ingesting cannabis is a much different experience from smoking it. With smoking you feel the effects almost instantly, but with edibles it can take up to 2 hours, or longer, to start feeling the effects. Everyone is different and we recommend you start out with a low dose.
A lot of people prefer edibles over smoking because it is more discreet, the “high” lasts longer, and edibles can give a higher dose of THC for people who need pain relief.
As more States legalize recreational use, the edibles market is seeing increasing popularity among cannabis users. Companies like Dixie Elixirs are reporting big spikes in sales and expecting to continue growth as more states legalize.
