Dispensary Owners & Buyers: A Moonshot Opportunity

Owners, buyers, and lovers of all things cannabis; we invite you to the Cannabis Drinks Expo 2021 in San Francisco

07/09/2021

What do great cannabis dispensaries have in common with many top fortune 500 companies? 

1) Forward-thinking professionals with an eye on consistent growth
2) Acknowledge the need for education within any emerging growth vertical
3) They collect and make decisions based on good analysis of data
4) Continually researching and developing new technologies
5) They market and promote products directly to clients based on all the above

What Do the Numbers Say?

According to Headset which is a Seattle-based cannabis analytics firm, cannabis-infused drink sales increased by 40.3% in 2020 over 2019 (across all states where cannabis is recreationally legal), outperforming the overall cannabis market which increased 39.4% for the same timeframe.

This year 2021 is already shaping up to surpass the revenue of 2020. Expectations are that the cannabis beverage sector could grow to over $1 BILLION by 2025. Cannabis drinks are the hottest sector today and what your customers are looking for.

Why Cannabis Drinks Now?

Many people are hesitant to try cannabis because they don't want to smoke or vape. Or they might be looking for a way to partake of cannabis without the social stigma attached to smoking or vaping.

Consumers are looking for relief, relaxation, and something with a socializing quality, after the many considerable lockdowns through the pandemic. Cannabis-infused beverages are socially acceptable to use, discreet and enjoyable. Your patrons will love them!

Dispensary owners and buyers, the time is here to discover the newest products and elevate the consumer experience. It's time to incorporate the newest cannabis-infused drink brands into your portfolio and watch revenue shoot to the moon.

The need for education is imperative for dispensary staff as well as consumers. Cannabis-infused beverages are formulated differently from edibles. Water-soluble components break down in the body uniquely. Therefore onset time for reactions is different. 

Many cannabis drinks are produced with the newest technology where lower doses (micro-dosing) can be delivered with advantageous results. Education in consumption and dosing is key to delivering a great cannabis drink brand.

Researchers are constantly testing onset times and duration of effects. Drinks can also be packed with nutrients, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes for an exquisite taste profile and a full Entourage Effect.

Shoot For Over the Moon Revenue - Partnerships

Cannabis dispensaries are already partnering with top researchers, labs, breweries, distilleries, and wineries. Some of the biggest beverage companies have already entered this cannabis beverage space or are considering the possibility.
