Vape pens have revolutionized the way people consume cannabis and have quickly become a leading revenue driver for the regulated cannabis market. One example can be observed in California, where the market share of vape cartridges has reached over 17% of all sales, according to data provided by Headset. While there is no question that the vape market will continue to grow and yield high margins for businesses, the question remains: How do you set your product apart in a market that is becoming increasingly competitive?
Cannabinoid blend products are unquestionably the next trend in cannabis the market is moving towards. Millions of consumers have already shifted their buying habits toward CBD-enhanced products that provide a well-rounded vaping experience.
