2017 was a groundbreaking year for cannabis in Canada. More Canadians began to see the benefits of marijuana, innovative products and accessories flooded the market, and of course, it was the final year for recreational prohibition!
We know that 2018 will be the year that cannabis will take its place as a (normalized) part of the lifestyle of many Canadians.
Here are some cannabis lifestyle trends to look forward to in 2018:
Vaporizing has been blazing trails as the popular, healthier alternative to smoking cannabis, yet people are now getting turned on to what’s possible with infusions.
Cannabis oil is the (absolutely delicious) new norm, and we’ll be seeing a lot more of it in 2018.
Now, cannabis users are able to infuse their own cannabis products at home with innovative appliances like the LEVO Infuser. It invites you to choose their flower and their oil to infuse to make edibles, beverages, and even tinctures.
As it stands, recreational cannabis use is still highly stigmatized. But once it’s legal, we’ll begin to see a natural crumbling of the walls that kept people from disclosing their cannabis use to each other and freely enjoying it together in the past.
Expect to see more weed weddings, cannabis-chef parties, ganja yoga sessions and smoke circles making people’s social calendars greener next year.
No matter from what angle you look at it, the ‘women in cannabis’ vibe is strong with female companies and CEOs making a stamp in the industry, and a ton of new products specific to women’s lifestyle and health.
And it’s not just sleeker vapes with women’s aesthetic in mind.
From THC and CBD suppositories for menstrual pain, to strains catered to women, to healthy tinctures, and oils that can be used to stimulate sensuality, the market is stepping up to treat a woman’s mind and body to cannabis like never before.
Technology and communications are bringing cannabis users together in some pretty big ways.
More social media networks, more research hubs like Cannabis IQ from MD Briefcase, and education centres like our unique proprietary platform and model are making more knowledge available for Canadian cannabis consumers, and more opportunities for them to connect in 2018 and beyond.
We can’t wait to see what other cannabis lifestyle trends 2018 will bring to Canada! Happy New Year from the Modern Leaf team.
