WHY AMERICA IS BUZZING ABOUT MARIJUANA FOR WELLNESS
- November 19, 2018
As the great marijuana debate continues to plow across our country, many people are left questioning: what is next for the little green plant? Since its integration in the mid-2000s, pot has pretty much become the go-to product for a multitude of people seeking medical assistance or (on a riskier move) just trying to kick their “high” up a notch, and America has become a breeding ground for this behavior. Aptly named “reefer madness” is sweeping across our country as people move to different states for the sole purpose of having the freedom to smoke weed. Let’s just say it takes quite a convincing case to win over the hearts of people who never loved this drug to begin with. So why is America buzzing (so to speak) about marijuana as an addictive to wellness routines? Let’s take a closer look and find out.
Legalize and Normalize
Overall, the marijuana industry is expected to skyrocket to a staggering $75 billion in profits by 2030, but most people do not plan to drift through clouds of green smog to get to this point. Although the current market constitutes young men, some businesses are targeting older women (a rarer consumer group). Throughout the years, statistics have never led us to deny that young people are going to experiment with pot (despite the serious consequences), but weed businesses are now attempting to draw in the mothers of these children. In other words, now that pot has been legalized, it is time to normalize it. At least, that’s what the experts are saying.
So how do you reach a growing market and target all ages and both genders? The answer is simple: start marketing on different apps. For example, Colorado recently released Gofire, which allows people to access a variety of “alternative medicines” and develop a database for their pot preferences. Even more interesting, these apps can also tell customers what cannabinoid content is in each product (like the balance between CBD and the lesser known CBG).
