Cannabis Trends to Look Forward To in 2022
From cannabis drinks to emergent cannabinoids, the cannabis industry is taking off in wild and exciting directions. Here are a few trends that you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on in 2022.
Cannabis drinks took California by storm in 2021, and we predict that this refreshing way to consume your weed will get even bigger in 2022. Cannabis drinks have a fast onset time of 10–15 minutes, just like alcoholic beverages, which makes them an easy substitute for that glass of wine after dinner, or a cocktail at Sunday brunch. And best yet—no hangovers!
With just 2mg THC and 4mg CBD per drink, Cann’s social tonics are low dose and totally delicious. Flavors include Lime Basil (available exclusively at Sava), Blood Orange Cardamom, Grapefruit Rosemary, Yuzu Elderflower, and more.
Crafted with black currants, mandarin, and aromatic bitters, Pamos is a non-alcoholic spirit that’s great on the rocks or mixed into a cocktail. Available in low-dose (6mg THC/serving) and microdose (2mg THC/serving) options.
Wunder’s Higher Vibes beverages are a great high-dose option, with 10mg delta-9 THC and 10mg delta-8 THC for a calm and elevated high. Available in Blood Orange Bitters, Watermelon Basil, and more.
Want more cannabis drinks? Try Artet, Mad Lilly, Calexo, Kikoko, Hi-Fi Hops, and House of Saka.
You already know and love THC and CBD, but the growing interest in cannabinoid research has led to more products that are focused on the health benefits of minor cannabinoids, including CBN, CBG, CBC, THCa, THCv, and more. We break down the top cannabinoids on our page The Secret Life and Hidden Health Benefits of Cannabinoid Compounds, and we can’t wait to try more new cannabinoid-focused products this year.
Level offers tablets that are formulated with emergent cannabinoids. Try their CBG Protabs for a non-psychoactive way to destress, THCv Tablinguals for an energizing high, and more.
Infused with passionflower, rose petals, and ashwagandha, Cosmic View’s Pink Boost THCv Tincture will help you reap the full benefits of THCv, which include appetite suppression and boosted metabolism.
Hash, a concentrate made from the delicate trichomes found on the tips of cannabis flowers, is known for its potent high and strong, earthy cannabis flavor. Infusing edibles with hash creates a euphoric head high reminiscent of smoking, making it a popular choice for those who enjoy a terpene-rich, whole-plant experience.
All Kiva chocolate is infused with cold-water hash, which provides a fuller and richer experience that honors the whole plant. We recommend their Terra Bites or classic bars (available in Blackberry, Toffee, and more).
Handcrafted in San Francisco by a BIPOC-owned business, the gourmet marshmallows by Mellows are made in collaboration with the late master hashishin, Frenchy Cannoli.
Popular with the cannabis heavy-hitters, rosin is a concentrate made by applying heat and pressure without the aid of solvents or chemicals. Thought to be cleaner than other extracts, rosin is growing in popularity due to increased calls for transparency about what goes into our weed.
Inspired by Turkish delights, Rose’s edibles are infused with single-strain, whole-flower rosin that's pressed in-house. Enjoy flavors such as Rose Hibiscus, Apple Ume, and Magical Grapes.
Doc Green’s cold-cured live rosin is described as “aromatic gold” and is rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. We recommend their Papaya rosin, a fruity indica-hybrid known for aiding mental calmness.
