It’s a new year and a new you. As a cannabis user, I’m sure you are looking forward to experimenting with new ways to consume. These options can change your perspective and keep weed use interesting.
The latest cannabis trends will bring inspiration to the weed-using experience. But which trends can we expect in the coming year? Here are a few to look out for.
2024 Cannabis Trends
Healthier Ways to Get High
The world is becoming more health conscious. The revolution will come into play in everything we do, including the way we use weed.
Studies have revealed that smoking weed can irritate the lungs and respiratory system. As a result, many people are opting for cleaner smoking and consumption methods. Here are some cannabis trends to consider.
- Vaping, Bongs, and Dabs: These methods reduce exposure to toxins and provide a cleaner smoking experience.
- Healthier Rolling Papers: Rolling papers can be made from toxic materials that cause respiratory issues. If you prefer joint smoking, consider using papers made from hemp and other all-natural ingredients.
- Oils, capsules, and tinctures: These methods will help you avoid smoking weed altogether. They take some of the fun out of the communal smoking experience, but they are better for your lungs.
Cannabis beverages were one of the cannabis trends that took off in 2023. They are expected to get even bigger in 2024.
Today, people are choosing cannabis beverages as a healthy alternative to alcoholic drinks. They provide health benefits and offer fewer health risks than alcohol. They don’t cause as much impairment. They can also be lower in calories.
There are several types of cannabis beverages to choose from, including teas, seltzers, energy drinks, sodas, coffee, juice, and so much more. Choose the beverage you prefer to make 2024 a safer and healthier year.
More Consumption Lounges
Consumption lounges are one of the up-and-coming cannabis trends. Some of these lounges sell weed. Others simply provide a place for users to chill and make money off selling coffee, food, and services. Laws vary by jurisdiction.
You can expect to see a lot more of these lounges pop up in 2024. They will be the go-to place for people who want to take a break from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the weed experience.
Focus on Cannabis Strains
Cannabis trends show a move to a more personalized cannabis experience. Cannabis strains can help achieve this goal.
Weed strains are no longer confined to Indica, sativa, and hybrid. Today’s strains feature a mishmash that is more contingent on the cannabinoids, terpenes, and trichomes the weed contains. They are specifically developed to offer customized results.
People are learning which strains are best suited to their purpose. They are choosing strains that meet their health and wellness goals. Consumers will face 2024 sticking to tried and true strains and trying new ones that are hitting shelves this year.
A Focus on Sustainability in Production
Environmental cannabis trends are not going anywhere. Cannabis producers are getting on board with a hybrid growing approach. It combines indoor growing technology with the sustainability and cost efficiency of outdoor cultivations.
The trend is carrying over into cannabis packaging. Companies are using sustainable, biodegradable, recyclable packaging materials. An environmental approach is preferable to customers who buy the products.
Growth in the Disposable Vape Market
Vapes are one of the more popular cannabis trends. The increasing rise of vapes is not only a convenience thing. It’s about variety.
Experienced cannabis users find vapes especially appealing due to rosin vape and live resin vape varieties. They have exceptional taste and flavor, and more pronounced effects.
Variations are not only apparent in the cannabis type. Disposable vape products are also changing things up. You can find disposable vapes with dual chambers and those that feature weed leaf and state shapes.
Dual chamber vapes can hold different weed varieties. So you can have different strains and potencies in each chamber. They add interest to the weed-using experience.
The rise of Shake/Trim/Lite
Previously, shake or trim was thought of as something you smoked when you could not get your hands on quality stuff. But today, companies are actively selling shakes during times of shortages. Some consumers prefer it because it is cheaper than regular flower.
Expect shake products to become one of the popular cannabis trends as inflation rages on in 2024.
Increased Popularity of PreRolls
Pre-rolls are a convenient option. They were not a first choice for customers in the past, but today, they are gaining popularity due to price compression. Their affordability makes them an attractive option for cost-conscious consumers.
Pre-rolls are also attractive because they come in infused and solventless varieties. Infused papers make the joints more potent. They are desirable to experienced users.
Solventless products allow terpenes to come through to produce a superior taste. They are also free of chemicals and provide a healthier smoke.
Infused and solventless products are more expensive than regular joints, but the combination of variety and cost-effective options has established pre-rolls as one of the popular 2024 cannabis trends.
Increase in Hemp-Derived Products
Hemp-derived products are often seen as a healthier form of cannabis. People who are skeptical of cannabis may feel more comfortable using hemp-derived weed. Hemp may even spill over into regional and statewide chains.
There are consumer safety concerns considering these products are not subject to the standards of the legal cannabis market. But if it becomes more mainstream, companies will realize they must maintain an expected level of accountability. In time, their popularity may even outweigh other cannabis products.
