For consumers that don’t know the difference between a sativa, hybrid, indica, or CBD-heavy strain, cannabis and hemp products can be confusing. Exotic, old school strain names are quirky and fun, but sometimes, a marijuana moniker doesn’t tell you much about what to expect in regard to effects. Trainwreck or White Widow may not be what the customer is looking for, especially if they’re interested in CBD.
Now that CBD oil and infused products have seen huge consumer interest, it may be even more mysterious for users to understand the effects of various cannabinoids like CBD (cannabidiol), or the touted “entourage effect” of CBD derived from whole plant cannabis, or how added terpenes and other plant compounds can enhance the experience for users.
At the end of the day (or even early in the morning)–consumers are looking for an effect, and often, only they know what “relaxation” or “euphoria” or “focus” feels like to them. One way to help wellness-motivated customers or patients is to offer branding that tells them exactly what to expect from an infused product and with medicinal blends developed for a specific effect or symptom.
With the wellness trend spilling over into all categories of lifestyle retail, disposable vape pens are a great entry-level product for the CBD- and cannabis-curious alike. They appeal to those who already enjoy smoking/vaping, or are trying to break a tobacco habit, are on the go, or who prefer a discreet way to indulge.
Hemp-derived CBD oil typically contains less than .03 percent THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis. CBD oil derived from whole plant cannabis will contain higher levels of THC, as well as other cannabinoids, terpenes, and compounds; products infused with CBD oil from cannabis are available only in legal states, through licensed dispensaries.
Here are five vape pens made to match your mood or elevate it:
