5 Legal Marijuana Trends in 2017
It is good to know that the marijuana legalization bill will be introduced on April 13. This means
the bill can take effect as early in July this year. Once applied, the government sees that the
marijuana consumption and incidental possession will be decriminalized.
While it is true that legal marijuana is still on the works in many parts of America and in Canada,
there are existing trends that we should take note of. We listed some noticeable trends of legal
marijuana this year:
1. Branding and marketing on TV
Business experts see that the legal marijuana market will grow at a faster pace, once the
investment community has settled and is eager to finance cannabis brands. Even in 2016,
numerous legal marijuana brands emerged. Another boost is that celebrities backed them. For
one, Wiz Khalifa launched his pot products, and Tommy Chong even had his own “high grade
Stepping the game of marketing legal marijuana, the product has hit mainstream television. You
can see weed sitcoms with Adam Scott’s “Buds” still on hold at NBC and Margaret Cho’s
“Highland” still in development at Amazon.
2. More options on edibles
Who says we will all get stuck with pot brownies? Washington and Colorado have already
stepped up the game with edibles; making diverse and healthier options.
As we all know, edibles allow us to regulate our cannabis dosage, as many recreational packages
label the amount of THC and CBD in the products. Check out this guide to have a more delicious
3. Cannabis in weddings
In 2015, it can be remembered that a “cannabis bar” once appeared in a happy wedding party in
Oregon. To make the “cannabis bar” more special, it was separated from the reception, and a free
transportation was provided to guests who wanted to experience what it was like in the bar.
Surely, this will not be the first and the last “cannabis bar” in a wedding party.
4. Banking operations from cash-only basis
Most of marijuana transactions are still operating on a cash-only basis. This is because there are
many in the business that cannot access banking and financial services. In America, there are
only 301 banks that serve the cannabis industry; merely 3% of the nation’s federally regulated
banks and credit unions. Good to know that there is a number of law makers who are pushing to
reform federal banking guidelines. This is so those in the legal marijuana industry will not be
forced to work underground due to restrictions in financial transactions.
5. A perfect combination with yoga
Yoga is known for its calming and meditating properties. Imagine consuming marijuana before
doing yoga. Most cannabis users find that doing so let’s you achieve “enlightenment”. Getting
the cannabis into your system also allows you to bring yourself into a quiet, meditative state. It is
important to note that, a great addition to this great combo is good music. Enjoy positive vibes
and great inner peace!
