As more states across the country legalize and decriminalize marijuana for medical and recreational use, the burgeoning industry continues to grow. This, as well as the different ways CBD and THC, which are compounds of marijuana, can be consumed, has made it possible for the manufacture of marijuana products that cater to different consumer needs.
Below are a few of the marijuana products that are gaining popularity as the fight to end the plant’s federal prohibition continues.
For consumers who are fans of sweet stuff, CBD gummies may be the perfect option. While it may be challenging to accurately determine the amount of CBD present in the gummies, this doesn’t seem to impact either their popularity or their ease of access.
Lots of companies make gummies containing either CBD or THC alone, depending on the laws in the states in which they are operating.
A recent article on CBD cocktails found that marijuana beverages were gaining more exposure, which only increased their popularity. The legalization of the herb for recreational use may also help move things along. Such progress can be seen in states such as Colorado, where recreational cannabis is legal. Some dispensaries in the state sell marijuana fruit punch and cola.
Over in New York, various coffee shops also offer marijuana-infused coffees, which are said to be perfect for calming one’s nerves. Additionally, Coalition Brewing’s CBD-infused beer is available at various locations in the states of Washington and Oregon, with the company that created Blue Moon currently working to also develop nonalcoholic marijuana-infused beers.
Cannabis skin care and beauty products
CBD is said to possess many beneficial properties, among them anti-inflammatory properties, which some scientists say may help combat acne. Beauty products that contain CBD have become so popular that some can be purchased from the Sephora website.
The CBD topicals market continues expanding as more products containing CBD, such as bath salts and bath bombs, balms, mascara, lip gloss and body wash, are introduced to the market. One should keep in mind that the cannabinoid type in the beauty product determines its effects.
Cannabis oils have low THC amounts and can be used to relieve nausea and anxiety, as well as alleviate pain, without inducing any psychoactive reactions.
The oil has also been used in the production of a pharmaceutical formulation indicated for the treatment of some forms of epilepsy. This treatment (Epidiolex) was recently approved by the U.S. FDA.
In addition to this, cannabis oil has also demonstrated that it can be useful in combating sleep issues, depression, and anxiety as well as being considered as a complementary cancer treatment.
For users who are looking to try legal cannabis but aren’t big fans of smoking, the above options afford a bevy of products to choose from. However, it is important to remember that marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, so users should be mindful to now break any laws in the state in which they are indulging.
CBD-infused products are in such high demand that established companies such as The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER) have an entire line of CBD-infused products, including salves, gummies, infused drinks, lotions and balms among others.
