Look at that – a new year! Sure, none of us are tossing our masks away yet, but for a moment let’s have some positive thoughts and talk about Cannabis Trends for 2021!
More Cannabinoids on the market!
As we’ve discussed, there are at least 113 cannabinoids in the marijuana plant. And currently, we’ve only just explored the tip of the iceberg regarding research into the main cannabinoids, THC and CBD.
So, who’s the next biggie going to be shoved into supplements left, right, center, and on our shelves (possibly)?
CBN (Cannabinol) is a non-psychedelic compound that is created when your THC ages. If you have some really old marijuana lying around the home, it’ll be brimming with the stuff. But its main medicinal benefits?
Well, a few actually! It has:
- Antibacterial prosperities;
- Neuroprotective (saves the brain);
- Appetite Stimulate;
- And is an anti-inflammatory.
It’s important to note that these studies were performed on rodents and more research is needed. While there is an older study from 70s that suggests CBN helps with sleep, it was a counter-argumentative study, saying CBN made participates sleepy, then went 180 on that statement saying, it didn’t.
Anyway! Let’s just say that cannabis research is going to be a hot topic again in 2021. On to the next cannabis trend!
More CBD Products!
I feel like this shouldn’t come as a surprise. We have CBD products for nearly everything!
Sure, there’s also a fizzy drink, but we don’t stock it. Some other people do. We shall not mention their name, the Body Shop rip offs!
Right! What other products can we expect?
One new product is CBD bedding. Yes, you read that correctly!
CBD is going to be infused into the fabric. This would apparently help the owner to sleep. Not sure if Chris would be willing to turn Zootly into a bedding company, but then again, stranger things have happened…
I think CBD toothpaste and mouthwash would be great!Andrew Macfarlane circa 2019 in a Zootly brainstorm.
YES, it happened! CBD toothpaste and mouthwash! And some professionals agreed with the said kept writer.
CBD is a powerful antibiotic and anti-inflammatory, so we have found it has great benefits in relation to oral care after years of offering our patented CBD-based chewing gum. The inclusion of CBD for anti-inflammatory and antibiotic is intended to aid reduction in gum swelling while helping to eliminate infection-causing bacteria.Axim CEO John W. Huemoeller II
Oh well, you win some and lose some.
Since we’ve moved to the tourist hub of Kloof Street, we’re all about the high destinations.
Everyone around is hoping that travel will return in 2021! And if the borders open and vaccines become available, we’ll be keen to experience some amazing cannabis-themed travelling.
Whether it’s hiking, dog walking, or just bar hopping, we’re keen! Watch this space!
Concluding Cannabis Trends for 2021
We’re sure there’ll be some toking innovations in 2021, like a Nespresso device for cannabis, but until the vaporizer companies publish press releases – we’re going to have to wait!
And let’s just take a moment and reflect on 2020… Ok, we’re done – ONWARDS!
