Why the market needs low-potency weed | Oasis

Earlier this week, I read a statistic that surprised me.According to consumer insights analysts minfield group, one in 10 cannabis users prefer flower with a THC content of 6 to 10 percent. This is a far cry from the 30 to 40 percent THC buds readily available on the market, but how often can you find low-potency weed at your local dispensary? Almost never.

The cannabis industry is driven by supply and demand. Since most customers are demanding stronger products, it makes sense that high-potency products take up the majority of shelf space. In doing so, a segment of the population is completely removed from the regulated market, while those who are curious about cannabis may never try it.

Shockingly, after years of doing the opposite, I have become one of those people who seeks out low-THC products. But more on that later.

CBD in demand, but industry fragmented

Not long ago, I interviewed several retail buyers in California ahead of a large brand presentation flower hall. When I asked them what they were looking for, CBD was definitely on the list. They understand dispensary needs for low-efficiency flowers, edibles, and e-cigarettes. However, producers who want to make ends meet have to go where the money is, which leads them to produce as much THC as possible.

This sentiment was echoed during a recent visit. Emerald Bay Extract. The brand makes strain-specific RSO and pills popular with the medical crowd, including 1:1 varieties like Harlequin. The shop owner lamented that the CBD-rich flowers on the market simply could not meet production needs, directly affecting the customers who relied on his products for relief.

The appeal of low-potency weed is something I’ve seen and experienced firsthand.my partner farming High CBD Strains Marijuana, selling smokable flower at local farmers markets. After handing out countless samples to curious passers-by, the number of people who returned to buy was astounding. Many of them are older consumers and are happy to have products for them.

To be fair, these sales occurred in Wisconsin, which has no regulated marijuana market. However, THC flower (aka weed, considered federally legal marijuana) is easy to obtain and no doubt people are sourcing legal bud in other states and bringing it back to their dairy farms. My partner’s loyal customers choose to smoke CBD because it gives them the experience they are looking for: a relaxing and gentle buzz without the noticeable stiffness or anxiety that high-THC products can cause.

But it’s not just the elderly who are enjoying the benefits of low-potency cannabis. I started consuming it myself. Last year, after a lifelong battle with anxiety began to intensify, it became clear that, as much as I didn’t want to believe it, THC probably wasn’t helping. Those years of smoking day and night and wiping every day seem to have disappeared. There were a few times when marijuana sent me into a debilitating spiral that made me realize it might be time to take a break.

I decided to try some of my partners sour injection fuel, a CBD-rich lemon and gas-forward strain. For those who say CBD doesn’t get you high, I beg to differ.This could be the entourage effect of terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds working synergistically, but I definitely feel something. I felt no panic, and gratitude quickly washed over me.

From then on, I also started to like cubic boron nitride, a minor cannabinoid commonly used for sleep.it starts with space gem1:1 THC:CBN Gummies. CBN’s content lightens my load and helps prevent the paranoia food brings me.then i found True cubic boron nitride Softgel capsule containing 50 mg of CBN isolate. I used to be a strict whole plant consumer, but I wanted to give it a try. This product has changed my life, I have never slept better.

A market for everyone

THC isn’t for everyone. This is already clear. But by ignoring the need for less potent cannabis in the legal market, we’re doing a disservice to those who would actually benefit. Whether consumed for therapeutic reasons or for a cooling and mild high, the demand for CBD and other non-THC cannabinoids is clearly there.

We are supposed to be an industry that serves the people, but by catering to customers who only care about THC, all we are doing is driving patients and curiosity about cannabis further. I know this is a complex issue, made even more difficult by operators’ desperate need for dollars. But wouldn’t we ultimately do better by inviting more consumers to participate?
