CONSIDERING THE POPULARITY OF CBD-HEAVY STRAINS AND CBD PRODUCTS
- November 16, 2018
For members of the cannabis community, CBD seems to be a topic that’s clearly on everybody’s minds, at least regarding the potential benefits of this substance. On Google and pot websites like Leafly, searches for this cannabinoid have skyrocketed, and, based on statistics from Google Trends, the search term “CBD” is 4 times higher this year (no pun intended) than the searches for the keyword “THC.” So why is there such a buzz (again, no pun intended) of activity related to this cannabinoid? If you have been keeping up with marijuana in the news, then you are probably aware that CBD has been proven to have a ton of health benefits, according to scientists. Even the United States market has officially approved Epidiolex (a CBD-based epilepsy drug) as an uncontrolled substance in pharmacies across the country. So which products are taking the pot world by storm? Let’s take a closer look at the popularity of CBD-rich products that you should be aware of.
Prevalence of CBD Products
So how well are CBD products (or, in this case, CBD-containing products) represented in cannabis testing labs? When you are considering rank in the supply chain, testing labs are one of the first portals for these products to pass through, as all of them have to undergo thorough testing before they are set on the shelves for buyers. Keep in mind that CBD and its cousin THC are tested simultaneously.
For example, a review of Confidence Analytics revealed that, in Washington State alone, most marijuana flower products (98%) are THC-dominant (for the most part), revealing that the Washington market is low on CBD products. While CBD is sought to make oils, topicals, and medicines, THC is still favored by a 92% margin. However, in the edibles department, Washington CBD-products represent a 20% margin in the test market.
What People Want
As an example, let’s take a look at the website Leafly. Each year, millions of people visit this cannabis site for updates on the marijuana market and (of course) to shop for products. Still, what are they specifically searching for? According to stats, people prefer:
- 195%: CBD Vape-Oil
- 1%: CBD Oil
- 4%: CBD Tincture
- 7%: CBD
- 7%: CBD Marijuana Strains
