It is the nature of any new industry to have rapid trend changes, and the marijuana market is not an exception. Changes are therefore most likely be visible on the shelves at your local dispensary.
Lately, you may have noticed that shorter lines and fewer people are seen queuing at the dispensaries; this is because digital kiosks are serving the customers faster. Marijuana customers will also be able to purchase more CBD-infused products as it is the product that is legal in many states in the U.S. this year.
Discussed below are some of the in-store dispensary trends to watch out for in 2020.
- Try Marijuana Products That are Low in Dosage
More people who have never consumed weed are daring to try it out as the marijuana market expands. However, they do not want to be too high to the extent that they risk losing control of themselves; thus, they are looking to manage their experience by consuming low dosage products, which are currently on the rise. This type of low dosage is known as microdosing or precise dosing. As the marijuana market expands, smaller dose products are likely to infiltrate their way onto the shelves in your local retail outlets. These products include mint and other edibles with low levels of THC.
- Instead of Human Budtenders, You Will be Served by Automated Budtenders
Technological advancements are affecting the retail industry, marijuana dispensaries included. Computerized checkout systems found in Target, CVS, and grocery store chains are also popping up in marijuana dispensaries. Customers can browse through the store while tapping the products they need, pay, and then pick up their orders at the counter.
Paywana is the largest supplier of automated systems for marijuana kiosks, with clients such as Curaleaf, among clients. Some of the advantages of automatic systems include;
- It is easier and faster to process more orders
- The Point Of Sale system is not needed
- Less waiting time
- Increased sales
- Improved accuracy on orders
- CBD Beauty Products
Cannabidiol (CBD) is legal in almost all states in the U.S., and people should be ready to see more CBBD-infused edibles, oils, lotions, and other products in their local dispensary shelves as well as other retail outlets. There will be several varieties of edibles, such as gummies, mints, and cookies. More CBD-infused beverages will be found on the market since most of the beverage companies such as Coca-Cola and Molson are working on unveiling CBD-infused drinks.
WeedMaps reported on ideas aired at the 2019 MJBizCon in Las Vegas saying that people should also expect to buy CBD-infused drinks at their local restaurants as well as meals infused with marijuana and CBD.
- More CBD Products for Men
Women products with CBD as an ingredient have also dominated the CBD market, and they include skincare and cosmetic products. Sweet Earth is set to launch a new line of masculine-leaning CBD products such as beard and face wash, shaving cream, aftershave, beard and mustache oils as well as a styling gel.
It would be interesting to see what new products weed companies like SinglePoint Inc. (OTCQB: SING) have in mind to take advantage of the trends discussed above.
