2018 Evolving Trends for Cannabis
As more and more states are moving towards the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana, the cannabis commerce has boomed. It is considered to be nation’s fastest growing industry, spread across sectors from food to technology.
This has presented numerous opportunities from the cannabis industry, along with several emerging trends that have been identified.
Let’s take a look at the evolving trends for Cannabis for 2018.
Designers globally have been using the symbol for the marijuana leaf in their cannabis clothing collection. For Fall 2016 collection, Alexander Wang used the black- and- white pot design on coats and mohair skirts for a grunge look. Spring 2015 saw Mara Hoffman had cannabis leaves made across trousers and flowy maxi dresses. A$AP Rocky was spotted wearing a greenwashed Adidas logo ny Jeremy Scott.
Cannabis symbolism on clothing no longer sends a signal that the wearer of the clothing is a stoner but instead has become a symbol of freedom and the ability to express yourself in whatever way they would like. The trend is only catching on.
Science and research
The most important trend that has emerged with the federal government ease on marijuana based research and explosion in cannabis products, is the science supporting cannabis usage, efficacy and safety, closing the gap between research and policy.
Top luxury beauty brands with products ranging from massage oil, body serums to aromatherapy candles, have new hemp seed based range lined up and selling equally well in comparison to conventional products. Hemp seed oil is being touted to have omega fatty acids and amino acids in the ratio similar to human DNA and helps improve skin and hair condition.
The breakout ingredient in the cannabis industry is the CBD oil, thanks to its steady rise in its retail growth and investments. This trend is expected to continue through 2021. CBD oil has medicinal and therapeutic benefits. A non-psychoactive extract from cannabis, CBD oil is showing up in lot of beauty and wellness products today.
One of the key factors that led to development of the cannabis industry is its medicinal benefits and applications to certain diseases. While medical consumers currently makeup a vast majority of the industry consumer, the ratio is expected to change with the advent of recreational cannabis market growth. However, the research and usage will continue to expand over the years.
With the traction in the world of corporate cannabis, the emphasis will soon move to small artisanal producers with small batch, unique, superior quality and specialized marijuana products. Cannabis companies will focus on artisan products with high end packaging as the consumers will warm up to luxury products, especially attractive packaging of vape pens. Luxury edibles and farm-to-table markets will also be on the rise.
Reports have shown that cannabis tourism has seen a significant increase with the advent of recreational marijuana. Weed-friendly inns, tours of local grown operations and cannabis massage are just a glimpse of what the future holds in the world of marijuana tourism.
According to the report from Salar Media Group and cannabis lifestyle website Civilized, the cannabis cultivation is leading to advancements in water and sustainability practices in agriculture. When California passed the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA) last year, it set new safety, health standards along with requirements for water consumption and prohibiting the use of volatile or poisonous solvents in cannabis preparations.
This has led to cannabis companies focusing on efficient use of water, rainwater harvesting, solar power usage along with efforts to reduce the carbon footprint.
Genetic and intellectual property
The report also says that the future of the cannabis industry lies in product consistency and quality that can be derived from advances in genetics. Genetic advancements will help in creating more predictable and consistent products.
Luxury Cannabis Brands
The newest trend that depicts the height of cannabis industry is the rise of luxury cannabis products. Products ranging from marijuana cigar to chocolate bars contain high quality cannabis with fancy packaging are becoming increasingly popular. Not just products, but luxury cannabis brands are also focusing on high-end dispensaries and and gold rolling papers.
As a combined effect of the rise of cannabis interest and use, there are advances in cannabis consumer research to fetch more data and make the industry consumer focused and smarter. Companies like software management company BioTrack THC and cannabis delivery company Eaze are using their data to create custom consumer reports.

State regulation requires the companies to provide seed-to-sale tracking data, have given way to software solutions to provide a seamless link between companies and government.
With more states beginning to legalize marijuana, these trends will continue to grow and gain momentum with more social acceptance. Once the industry gets federally legalized, North America will witness exceptional growth rate in sales volume, more scientific research, fresh products and increased investor interest.
The products will make you a full-grown and well functioning cannabis aficionado. If you have a healthy smoking (or dabbing) habit, one should also pay close attention to several novelty items that should definitely be included in your pot-repertoire.
Naturally many of these goods aren’t really necessary to perform the art of smoking weed, but to get the full dose of swagger and become a true pothead connoisseur, you should undoubtedly own a variation of all this merch I’m gonna introduce to you in a moments time.
As I previously said, many of these aren’t really required to achieve a high, but if you desire to go full-baller, you should think on getting yourself some of this stuff.
Okay so let us commence.
The first item we’re going to cover is Dab Rigs.
Dab rigs are pretty much all the rage in the weed world currently, and they are a new alternative to vaping, meaning it’s much healthier to inhale oil, extracts or concentrates then the usual old-school way of smoking.
You can use shatter, BHO, and many other forms of pot concentrates on StonerDays dab mats. You can take a dab by heating the designated surface of the rig, placing the concentrate on the surface and inhaling the smoke. The smoke was previously cooled by the water inside of it, similar to a water-bong.
Another high-tech gadgetry we’re mentioning are definitely Vaporizers, or colloquially spoken - Vapes.
Vaporizers are also a part of an awesome futuristic trend where the market realizes that the ingestion of harmful smoke (even with cannabis-only joints) can be harsh on your health in the long run.
Vapes have a small furnace inside of them which basically boils the bud with really high temperatures, releasing the almost tasteless vapor which is then enriched with THC, CBD, or a combination of these two cannabinoids.
The main difference between smoking and vaping is that without the combustion (aka burning) of the bud, you don’t expose your lungs to carbon and other unwanted elements and chemicals.
Next stop, Hemp Organic Vegan Rolling Papers.
In today’s world, being conscious about the environment and at the same time yourself is a huge part of being a cool-cat.
In past times rolling paper companies could afford to be non-eco friendly and bleach their product with various chemicals and lessen your health by doing so, but that trend is finally coming to a halt.
There are several excellent choices available worldwide that provide an excellent alternative to the huge companies, and their product is much better for the individual that smokes it, but also for the entire planet.
Grinder Watches are the future.
In order to be a full grown stoner, you should definitely own a grinder watch (especially one of those that has several separate chambers), and a fancy Wooden Box is also an awesome way to store your weed at home.
Also some Eye Drops are a great way not too look like the Terminator if you’re out and about.

What is a dab mat?
Dabs: noun 1. a form of marijuana concentrate commonly in wax or oil form
Example: “A dab will do ya good.”The old saying, “a dab will do ya,” has never been more true than in this scenario. The term “dab” is derived from the correct use of the actual noun as in “ do you want a dab,” when referring to this concentrated oil. It later evolved into, “hey, let’s dab.” Dabs are known for their incredibly high potency levels which some are said to reach into the 90th percentile. These little dabs can pack a mean punch and when using them, require a bit of attention. A dab in its wax form is a bit different than other concentrates in the way that you can’t just put it atop your tree and smoke it. More often than not, a regular lighter flame will not be hot enough to melt it. This, my friends, is where the “oil rig” makes its debut to the stage. An oil rig is a bong designed specifically for smoking dabs.
One hit from a concentrate bong is most comparable to smoking one moderate sized joint.
The potency and excitement of the dab is what adds to its popularity today. Most dispensaries carry them, you just ask for them by name and you’ll be soaring in no time.
