With a packed schedule between NCIA CannaVest in San Jose, and the Family Office Club’s Private Investor Summit and Cannabis Drinks Expo in San Francisco, the team assembled at three conferences in two different cities in California last week and had Golden State cannabis products on the mind.
We naturally spent ample down time investigating various cannabis dispensaries and the consumer-facing goods available in robust, thriving adult-use cannabis market. Those from more robust cannabis markets across the US may bristle at the commonality of some of these, but remember here on the East Coast things are just picking up. And there’s nothing the cannabis curious love more than the introduction to some killer products.
So this week we’re putting a spotlight on a selection of products and brands we sampled with a sense of solemn duty (ahem). Call it understanding cannabis product knowledge for the greater good. Or just call it another day at the office.
But admit it: You’re curious.
PART 1: DAYTIME ELIXIR
BRAND: Brain Tonic CBD, Humboldt Apothecary
WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW: “Nestled in the redwoods of California, this women-owned and operated company highly values sustainability, environmentally-friendly practices and quality ingredients. Humboldt Apothecary offers a variety of CBD-based tinctures that will take you to the next level. Notably, their tinctures use quality ingredients of medicinal herbs, natural honey and no artificial additives. Their sun-grown premium cannabis is made with whole flower extract using sustainable methods. Budget-friendly liquid formulations allow for discreet consumption, accurate dosing and rapid absorption.”
WHAT WE WANT YOU TO KNOW: In spite of travel and trade-show fatigue, as well as a series of high-octane investor meetings and public presentations, the mix of Ginko and Gotu Kola with this 1:1 CBD tincture hit all the right notes regarding user experience and overall effects. Bonus points for beautiful simple branding as well.
A LITTLE SOMETHING MORE: “I’d known for a while that cannabis had more to offer than just psychoactivity, but working with it on a day-to-day basis and seeing how our products positively affect so many other people has been such a strong reminder of what great medicine cannabis really is. I’m a big believer in people feeling empowered to take their health into their own hands by making healthy lifestyle choices. Now, I view cannabis as more of a superfood that nourishes our system and can be beneficial by incorporating it into our daily lives in a responsible way.” – Susan Cleverdon, co-founder speaking to MedMen’s cannabis lifestyle and culture publication, Ember.
