Big alcohol should be worried from the encroaching rise of cannabis infused beverages.

Not only have beer sales hit a wall in states with legalized cannabis, with industry analysts citing the surge of legal cannabis products being at the center of the lag in sales, but overall the rise of new options for products in line with consumers seeking sober options while socializing has led to a spike in the market seeing new opportunities in the emerging cannabis infused beverages space. With global cannabis sales already having grown 48% to $15 billion as per a recent report from The ArcView Group, this is a key time to look at the opportunities in the cannabis infused beverages space.

From Grand View’s report [emphasis ours]:

The global cannabis beverages market size was valued at USD $901.8 million in 2018 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 17.8% from 2019 to 2025. Rising demand for wellness drinks is anticipated to drive the growth. Moreover, low sugar content of the product and presence of appropriate quantity of cannabis for consumption are the factors projected to fuel the product demand. Legalization of marijuana usage for medical and recreational purposes in many countries is expected to drive the production as well as demand for cannabis-infused beverages.”

Industry insight publication MG Retailer picked up on the report and broke down some of the findings:

“Grand View reported CBD drinks experienced faster growth than THC drinks in 2018. The timing for CBD beverages may be ideal as the mocktail craze already shows an emerging demand for non-intoxicating drinks. Grand View concludes CBD drinks are popular because of the cannabinoid’s wellness and anti-inflammatory potential. This could be a major component of CBD’s continued growth in popularity.

THC-based drinks and cocktails also are rising in popularity. Unlike the therapeutic benefits associated with CBD drinks, THC beverages are popular with adults seeking recreational experiences. Grand View believes the demand for THC drinks is mostly driven by those who already consume both cannabis and alcohol.”

All of this is in line with what we saw when Cannapreneur Partners attended last year’s Cannabis Drinks Expo in California, which was bursting with exceptionally packaged, high end non-alcoholic and alcoholic CBD and THC cannabis infused beverages on display from brands all around the country.

I’m An Investor Looking For Ongoing Cannabis Deal Flow
How Family Office Club works with Cannapreneur Partners
Just about every event the Family Office Club produces has someone that wants to sponsor it from the legal cannabis space. They’ve become familiar with the space and the area of the cannabis people try to make sense of, from where to invest, learning about federal law vs state laws regarding legal markets, and so on. As the exclusive thought leader on cannabis for The Family Office Club, we have built a strong relationship through regular speaking engagements on stage at their investor summits while fostering new strategic partnerships and investor deal flow. Additionally, Family Office Club Founder, Richard Wilson, is appointed as a director on Cannapreneur Partners Board of Directors.

"There is a lot of education needed, and it’s an area that we’re going to have a group on stage [from the industry] at almost any Family Office Club investor event anyway, so it’s much more productive to be aligned with a firm that is in line with our mentality and long term vision of doing business. As I’ve mentioned in my books and Family Office Club podcasts, having high integrity, and aligning all parts of people on a team with shared values means an entrepreneur is more aligned in their industry and investor can put things in their portfolio to get better valuations in the long run." - Richard Wilson, Founder of the Family Office Club
How does the Family Office Club works with Investors?
As one of the top thought leaders in bringing partners and clients investments, capital raises, and private capital placement for high net worth families, the Family Office Club is making the industry more efficient while helping clients navigate a frustrating area: A lot of ultra-wealthy families don’t speak to each other.

By interviewing hundreds of family offices on stage every year, as well as in their Family Office Club podcast, and in the books they have published, the Family Office Club has proven they can help the investment industry be more efficient.

"Doing so with credible counter parties that share our long term views is we’re keeping an eye out for. Whenever there’s a new opportunity, there are some investors that get in early and take a mega view of an industry, kind of like what we have at the Family Office Club. I can relate to that perspective and take that view instead of defining themselves as a retail operator in space or defining themselves as one piece of space they’re trying to put together an ecosystem and a strategic platform. We don’t define ourselves as running a Family Office biz, we’re trying to grow the Family Office marketplace and make it easier to close deals with family offices." - Richard Wilson, Founder of the Family Office Club
