The cannabis industry in California will be the largest in the world. It can be difficult for new marijuana companies in California to get started as there are many regulations in effect in regards to compliance, which is a good thing. The industry is evolving and changing rapidly and it can be hard for brands to keep up. Moreover, finding these compliant brands can sometimes be a challenge and every dispensary carries different products.
California Green Rush
There is currently an oversaturation of California cannabis brands as everyone is looking to cash in on the green rush. Most manufacturing labs in the state are at capacity, unfortunately leading to brands cutting corners. It is important to do your research when considering marijuana products, don’t just focus on the quality but also the growing conditions. The first thing to look at is whether it is an organic cannabis product. Another thing most people forget is the THC:CBD ratio. THC has the psychoactive properties and CBD products are said to have the medical benefits. It is important to have a good balance and every strain will affect you differently.
If you are new to cannabis, the industry can be overwhelming. There are so many technical terms out there and it can be hard to keep up. We are learning something new every day. With big companies like Constellation, makers of Corona, hedging their bets in the market to the tune of 4 billion dollars, it is going to be very interesting to see where we are in ten years. The cannabis culture today seems to truly care about the small guy. This isn’t a plant you can mass produce. It is a delicate flower and must be trimmed by hand for the best results. With Canada legalizing the plant they are in the running to be the largest exporter in the business. Hopefully, we can catch up as cannabis will be a 20+ billion industry in the coming years.
