Welcome to our latest newsletter, where we delve into the current trends in the cannabis industry and explore how they impact patients, particularly those considering cannabis for the first time.
Trends in the Cannabis Industry
The cannabis industry is evolving rapidly, with new products and consumption methods gaining popularity1. Here are some key trends:
- Diversification of Products: The traditional cannabis flower is no longer the only product consumed. New, less invasive ways to consume cannabis are on the rise1.
- Beverages and Pre-rolls: These two categories saw robust growth in the United States in 20211.
- Tincture & Sublingual Products: In Canada, these products, introduced in late 2020 as part of ‘Cannabis 2.0’, saw over 3000% growth year over year1.
Impact on Patients
As a potential first-time patient, it’s important to understand how these trends might affect you:
- Variety of Consumption Methods: The diversification of products means you have more options for how to consume cannabis. This can make the experience less intimidating and more tailored to your comfort level and medical needs.
- Potential Health Effects: It’s always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new treatment.
- Strength of Products: Today’s marijuana is stronger than ever before, with higher concentrations of THC compared to 25 years ago4. This could impact the dosage and frequency of use for first-time patients.
We hope this information helps you make informed decisions about your health. As always, we recommend consulting with a healthcare professional before starting any new treatment.
