2019 in review: The hottest topics in the cannabis industry

A lot of things have happened in the cannabis industry throughout the course of this year 2019. As the year draws to a close, it’s that time of the year when we look back at the hottest topics throughout the course of the year. 2019 has sure been an interesting year with a lot of trending topics. We take a quick run through the year with the hottest topics in the cannabis industry.

January – Baby Boomers, the Aging Consumer.

For a long time, cannabis have been associated with youths. This isn’t wrong as many of the active consumers of cannabis are in their 20s. But there are many other users that are of the older generations. These include baby boomers. This is a growing segment of the cannabis users and they don’t fit very neatly into the box.

Young cannabis users tend to take cannabis for the fun of it, but boomers mostly take it for medical reasons. Most boomers, about 67% of them, take cannabis for the sake of their health and other medical reasons. Most boomers point out to body aches, pains and other medical issues as their reasons for consuming cannabis. Although there are many boomers who take it just to relax and feel good. As many of them have pointed out that it helps them to unwind and enjoy a good time. In the first quarter of 2019, about 62% of boomers consumed cannabis for health reasons in level 1 states.

February – The Rise of Social Consumption

There was an anticipation of the rise of cannabis social clubs that are legal in some markets before now. We saw this happen in 2019. Many cannabis users have said before that they enjoy taking cannabis alone in their homes. There are many others who have claimed that they take it only in small groups. There’s currently a large population of cannabis users who now take cannabis at public venues and in gatherings. In cities like Denver, Las Vegas and San Francisco, there have been more uses involved in public cannabis experience.

A large percentage of cannabis users in the US claim that they use cannabis for recreational and other social uses. Over 30% of users claim to consume it just before they meet with others. While 41% claim to use it for date nights and for daytime fun. Many legal cannabis clubs have emerged this year. Although, they’ve had to deal with regulatory issues in many cities

March – The Medicinal or Recreational CBD Debate.

This is a long-lasting debate, but it’s one that doesn’t matter anymore. Medical dispensaries are generally on the decline especially in places where they coexist with adult-use shops. This however doesn’t mean that people don’t use cannabis for medical reasons anymore. It’s just the business model that people prefer. There are more cannabis product available in the market today alongside an increase in cannabis education. This has led to the de-stigmatization of consumption of cannabis products and many more users now involve in taking cannabis both for recreational and medicinal purposes.

According to a survey, 64% of United States citizens already believe that there are medical benefits attached to cannabis consumption. 88% of people living in states where medical use or adult-sales is allowed also endorse it for medical purposes. Fewer people use it for singular purposes. Among those that use it for pain relief in level 1 states, 60% also indulge in it for social and recreational reasons. While 40% use it for both medical and recreational purpose.

April – Rise Of Cannabis Beverages

Nothing explains the rise in cannabis consumption more than a non-alcoholic cannabis beer. With the emergence of the cannabis beverage market, there are more options to consume cannabis. Cannabis beverage is probably the easiest and the most sociable way to consume cannabis.
In the second quarter of the year, beverages made a sale of $13.4M in the US edibles market. This makes up 6 of the total edibles market in the US. This follows a growing list of beverage brands in the market. As at the second quarter of 2019, there were 88 beverage brands in the market. With an increase of 19 brands from the second quarter of 2018. It is projected that by 2022, the US edibles market will reach a sale of $3.4 billion. It is estimated that by that time cannabis beverages will make sales up to $374 million, more than ten times the current figure.

There have been deliberations within the FDA as to the use of CBD as additives in drinks and food. The outcome of this deliberation will go a long way to determine the impact of cannabis

May – CBD Education

With the increasing popularity of CBD and cannabis product. People are developing more interest in this cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp. Very much unlike THC, CBD doesn’t give the psychoactive effect that THC gives.

Products with CBD in them are becoming popular and more common by the day, with different goods and brands buying into it. There is also the popular discussion on whether it should be used as an additive or not. There are more people who know about CBD these days than before.
The passing of the farm bill in 2018, which legalizes the growing of cannabis that has 0.3% THC, is partly responsible for the recent rise in the popularity and use of CBD. 56% of cannabis users in the US, say they don’t know the difference between the effects of THC and CBD. Compare this with previous stats, you will realize that more people are getting to know more about CBD and cannabis products.

June – More Brands Are Solidified

There have been more sales in cannabis product this year. CBD market has grown meteorically and many brands have become very solidly rooted. A lot of sales have been made in different categories ranging from edibles to concentrates and to topicals. Many brands far and wide has lead the sales. By producing quality products, many brands have built a fan base that is loyal to their product. The key is, they delivered on their promised experience, both the physio and the psycho experience.

Within the dispensary sales, branded product hold on to their lead on sales. As more consumers recognize these products and the strength of their market continues to increase, it is likely that they continue this trend.
In Colorado, 95% of the ingestibles market was full of branded products in the second quarter of this year. That is two percent more from the second quarter of 2018. In the category, the leading ingestibles brand took up 22% of all the sales while the closest competitor took up 11% of the ingestibles market.

July – Declining Prices

Perhaps surprisingly, the prices of many cannabis products in the market keep declining. There are a lot of reason that we can attribute to this decline in price. But the most likely one is that the price of the product largely determines consumer choice. You can’t be surprised by this though, most users would settle for a product that they can afford.

Products that offer premium prices also make their sales no doubt. But the best way to build a large, strong and loyal customer base is to ensure that the product is affordable for them.

In Oregon, the average of price of flower has reduced to $3.84 in June 2019. As at January 2016, it was as high as $9.28. Between the first quarter of 2016 and the second quarter of 2019, the average price of flower in Colorado has reduced by 44%. While the average price of concentrates has reduces by 26%. Things are quite different is California though. The price of flower only reduced by 3%. While the average price for concentrates and ingestibles increased by 23 and 33 percent respectively.

August – Customers Want Convenience

In the cannabis market, all the customers are after seem to be convenience. Before they venture into buying a product, the consumers crave for convenience. They don’t just want to be convenient when buying, they want to be convenient when consuming also. This clamor for convenience is more common among users that are new to cannabis consumption.
67% of users who shop in dispensaries have identified a convenient location as being very vital to their shopping. Over 50% of the users also claim that one of their top factors in determining whether to buy a product is the form of consumption. Delivery of the product is also a key factor in today’s market, just like with other products and services.

In the world today, convenience of the consumers is key to a successful business model. This is the same with the cannabis industry. The consumers are not just look to consume the product, they want to be convenient while doing so.

September – The Customer Core

Companies and brand that placed their focus on their customer base are bound to flourish. Although there are a lot of customers now flooding the products and a lot of new brands and companies providing competition for themselves, those that have flourished are those ones that place their core on their customers.

It is important for the companies to understand who their core customers are. This includes the discerning consumers. These are the cannabis enthusiasts that have experimented with different cannabis products. They understand the basic behind the cannabis science. It is important for these companies to focus their marketing on their core, even though mainstream consumers keep growing.

The discerning consumers are an important core of the consumer base. They are the early adopters, lead indicators and influencers. They take their time to know and understand details like terpenes, processing methods, packaging, growing methods etc. Companies that have paid

attention to these consumers have flourished more in 2019 and it is likely that this trend continues

October – Growth of Low Dose Products

In 2019, increasing number of cannabis users seem to pay more attention to the dosage. Users now care more about consistent dosing. They want to be able to control their experiences that they feel afterwards. There are still many consumers who stick to their “wild card’ dosage. But a larger population of consumers now prefer controlled dosage that meets up to the promise that’s set in their label.

43% of people consuming edibles now prefer to settle for the low-dose products. These are products that contain < 10mg of THC in each serving. Of the people consuming ingestibles in legal states, 54% now prefer to choose a product based on its CBD content. 58% of this 54% users prefer to buy products that don’t have THC in them at all or have a higher ratio of CBD to THC. 39% of consumers in legal states claim that manufacturers need more consistency in crafting their dosage. 43% users think that product label should have the intended effect in them, such as energy, relaxation, happiness etc.

November – CBD Legalization

Cannabis is already legal in many states and many activists are clamoring for it to be legalized in more states. In places like Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, New Mexico, Minnesota and Rhode Island, there are moves being made for cannabis to be legalized. In Vermont, possession and cultivation of cannabis is already legalized. The next move is the legalization of dispensaries that sell cannabis to users for recreational purpose.

About 65% of the country supports the federal legalization of cannabis. More than in recent years, the public support for the legalization of cannabis is really high now. It is likely that more states will legalize cannabis. With the increase in CBD education among users in 2019. The public are becoming more knowledgeable about the potential benefits that cannabis and CBD offers the consumers. This has led to more public outcry for the legalization of cannabis in more states. Many states are moving towards decriminalizing marijuana or enacting medical marijuana bill. Passing these bills will definitely be the first steps to full legalization of cannabis.

December – Studies Into New Ways to Use Medical Marijuana

There are different researches currently ongoing into the different compounds that are in cannabis. It is said that there may be some of these compounds that have anti-cancer properties. Researchers don’t just think that these compounds have anti-cancer properties. They also believe that it may be possible for them to synthesize new compounds from these ones. There’s a possibility that these synthesized compounds will have stronger anti-cancer properties than the ones in natural cannabinoids.

There are many others that think that CBD have antibiotic effects. This means that they may be able to treat infections that are resistant to antibiotics. These researches may result in the creation of topical CBD creams with antibiotic properties. Bacteria do not seem to be CBD resistant. At least, they haven’t shown that over the years. So this might be a viable solution to anti-biotic resistant infections.

Other Trending Topics in the Cannabis Industry

This is becoming a more common trend among cannabis users. Some states have already legalized the home cultivation of cannabis. There really is no reason to not plant cannabis since it’s legal in your state. Many cannabis consumers gave themselves more to planting cannabis by themselves. The success of these users have led to more users becoming more interested in growing cannabis by themselves. This trend among users have come to stay with. There are already many sites that give prospective growers DIY tips on how to successfully cultivate different strains of cannabis.

With an increase in cannabis popularity and the clamor for its legalization in all states, users in fully legal state can enjoy their self-grown cannabis.
Availability of more cannabis product

It’s not just new cannabis product that is infiltrating the cannabis market, there are new cannabis strains being created. There’s a strong likelihood that the growth of cannabis-infused beverages and other cannabis products will become rapid. This has led to many more companies investing in cannabis products and the cannabis market. Many of the cannabis beverages are already being made by companies that are mainstay in the beverage and alcohol industry. For example, there are talks already that Coca-Cola might make a carbonated drink that has CBD in it. It is also said that Molson-Coors might also create a beverage with cannabis infused in it.
The federal legalization of CBD may result in some companies selling CBD edibles even though they are not originally a part of the cannabis industry. There’s likelihood that there will be more variety of CBD edibles in the market in coming months. But marijuana flower will still be the most popular form.

The year 2019 has surely been an eventful one in the cannabis industry. The many developments that happened this year leaves the mouth watering for what the year 2020 has in stock. Many of these trends are set to continue into the new year. So many of these developments are here to stay and we can expect to see them birth more fruit in the year 2020.

CBD and Cryptocurrency in 2020

CBD and Cryptocurrency in 2020

What Everyone Will Be Talking about in the New Year

Two of the hottest billion dollar businesses in recent years, CBD and cryptocurrency, will only be getting bigger in 2020. While consumers can certainly combine the two trends by buying CBD products with digital assets, it is important to understand the two fashionable crazes. After all, both CBD and cryptocurrency can substantially alter an individual’s life.

While the most popular products are CBD gummies and any CBD tincture, there is a wide variety of CBD merchandise for sale, ranging from edibles, sex lubes, erotic massage oils and pet treats to bath bombs, soaps, honey sticks and coconut oil. As long as the CBD products for sale are derived from hemp, not marijuana, they possess less than 0.3% THC. That means a user will not experience the euphoric high associated with mary jane. The powerful CBD goodies are also legal in all 50 States.

Let’s begin with the most popular items, CBD edibles, such as gummies, sugar free gummies, and dried fruit. Each type of CBD makes for a delicious treat, whether it’s for you or as a Christmas present. Delectable CBD snacks taste just like candy. The powerful edibles are a fun and convenient way to get your daily dose of CBD.

Eating CBD gummies couldn’t be any easier. In fact, they are no different than scrumptious gummy bears. You can chew them up or let the gummies sit on your tongue. That way, you can take your time and savor the flavor. Once the CBD snack is swallowed, it makes its way through the digestive system and into the veins. Folks can simply increase the amount of CBD that they consume over time.

On top of edible delights, a person can now take advantage of a CBD oil tincture. Dependable CBD tinctures are inexpensive and convenient products that are easily absorbed in users’ mouths. They are also perfect for getting just the right amount of CBD. The best tinctures on the market are created with natural oils, appetizing flavors, alcohol and water to extract important compounds found in the cannabis plant.

Tinctures of CBD are also simple to consume. You simply begin with one dropper full and put the liquid under the tongue. Leave it there for anywhere between 60 and 120 seconds, and swallow. Many people feel that the best time to take CBD tinctures is after a meal or a snack.

Once you taken CBD tincture oil, you can enjoy the positive effects in less than half an hour. Better yet, you can enjoy the feeling for roughly 5 hours at a time. When it comes to how much CBD to ingest, it all depends on the strength of the dose. Best of all, you can toss one into your pocket or purse with ease and break it out whenever you desire, like just before the concert starts or before going to bed at night.

In case you are concerned about how long CBD will last in your system, everything should be safely flushed out of your body in a very short time, like five to six days. Of course, that length of time can increase to about 10 days for a chronic user. Still, that number from hemp-derived CBD doesn’t compare to the THC in marijuana that tends to last in a person’s body for several weeks at a time. 

Just make sure you only spend your time and money on hemp products that are free of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Also make sure there are no other unwanted chemicals, like the ones found in pesticides. You can even find tasty CBD edibles that are vegan-friendly. Keeping safety as a priority, you should also make sure that any CBD products you buy come from hemp grown in the United States.

CBD is growing in popularity among the start-up industry, such as booming cryptocurrency. What is cryptocurrency? Also known as digital gold, cryptocurrency is a digital currency that can be used to buy and sell goods and services. However, there is no physical coins, dollar bills or even pieces of gold. Rather, cryptocurrency is transferred from one owner to another with neither government regulation nor taxes. Like Bill Gates likes to say, we are living in the digital revolution.”

Why not rely on digital currency? Many of today’s biggest businesses, such as Sweaty Quid Freelance Marketplace, Facebook and Amazon are built on innovative digital platforms. After all, there are numerous benefits to cryptocurrency. Of course, most consumers out there find the most attractive advantage to cryptocurrency is the money one can save.

For starters, cryptocurrency never has to worry about inflation. At the same time, digital assets offer lower transaction fees, as opposed to high credit card fees, especially when dealing with different currencies. People, as well as businesses are used to dishing out anywhere from 2% to 5% fees for every transaction made with a credit card. In fact, they are paying hundreds just to accept payment from international customers. Banking on cryptocurrency, these fees are considerably lower. In some cases, the fees cease to exist altogether.

Another benefit is the removal of chargebacks. Never again does a retail store or service have to worry about a client paying for something and using it before stopping a charge for some fabricated reason. In other words, unfair chargebacks do not have to be an unfortunate cost of doing business in today’s world. A refund can always be issued if an individual or vendor decides it is appropriate. It is having the option that attracts so many entrepreneurs.

Fluctuating currencies from one country to another is never an issue, attracting customers from around the globe. Then there is the speed of digital currencies. No longer do folks have to wait days at a time to receive funds through a bank, even if it is overseas. Rather, cryptocurrencies take an average of one day to be transferred from one owner to another. A fabulous comparison is thinking of a bank as the slow Postal Service, while viewing digital dollars as email.

Shoppers can feel more secure when shopping, as they never have to store their credit card numbers onto a website. Regardless of a company’s massive size, it can still be cyberattacked. Credit card numbers on file have already been stolen by Home Depot and Target. Ouch!

With cryptocurrency, consumers depend on temporary encrypted codes for processing, eliminating all unauthorized purchases in the future. If a customer knows his or her financial information is secure, he or she will feel completely safe conducting business with you and your organization.

Best of all, cryptocurrency users stick together. If one store accepts digital currency, but another doesn’t, who do you think will get a cryptocurrency user’s business? Those who put their faith in digital dollars tend to be excited about using the currency. As a direct result, they scratch one another’s backs.

The benefits of cryptocurrency in today’s business world are seemingly endless, breaking down geographic and political barriers, while saving time and money for every party. But it is tough to get your foot in the door of any new business.

Whether its for your spouse’s Christmas gift or a New Year’s treat to yourself, CBD gummies, CBD Vape Pens and E-Liquid, CBD oil tinctures, CBD Cosmetics and Body Care Products, and other CBD merchandise is always a smart choice. The same can be said for cryptocurrency. So why not be chic and load up on both?

The Vape Industry: From the Bird’s Eye

Winter was waning in the D.C. adjacent border community of Silver Spring, Maryland on Tuesday, March 5th. While most offices on the East Coast were getting ready to wind down for the day, the office of the Federal Drug Administration had a national spotlight drawn on it. In a press release, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb announced his resignation. A stormy path had been navigated by Gottlieb, often running afoul of both sides of the vaping debate. But his departure left the vapor industry in a state of flux. As Gottlieb exited his position at the FDA, new draft guidance was issued moving the Premarket Tobacco Authorization (PMTA) period for vape up from August 8th, 2022 to 2021 – and more importantly – proposed ending its tolerance of flavored vape juices.

Further complicating this news was the appointment of Acting Commissioner Norman Sharpless, whom has publicly expressed support for Gottlieb’s approach to regulating vapor products. The FDA’s approach was thrown yet again into deeper chaos in May when a Federal Judge struck down the FDA’s proposed date of August 8th, 2021 for enforcing PMTA applications and demanded they begin reviewing applications immediately. While the FDA has yet to appeal this ruling, it points to a continuing trend of combative governmental oversight of the vapor industry.

This all comes at a critical juncture for the vapor industry. As challenges to vapor packaging emerge from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), external pressure has been pushing on a vape industry trying to quietly continue doing business. Thousands of companies, brands and shops have been struggling to make sense of an increasingly grey visage of the near future. Historically, despite offering compliance deadlines and requirements, the FDA has been loath to stick to any guidance it has issued. Other than letters and incidences of public shaming, the FDA has – seemingly arbitrarily – shift compliance deadlines and failed to enforce any of its proposed policies across the vapor industry. This lackadaisical approach to regulation has left many in the vapor industry frustrated as they sought to comply with the FDA’s exacting standards and expectations for regulatory filings and compliance deadlines.

A natural response to these actions by the vapor industry has seen many vape companies expanding beyond the vapor industry. The passing of the 2019 Farm Bill opened up the opportunity for the sale of cannabidiol (CBD). While this is still very much a legal grey area until outright legalization of hemp and cannabis is codified into Federal law, it has spurred a confidence in vape companies to diversify outside of the vape industry and into CBD. This isn’t possible for every vape company financially, but entrepreneurs in the vape space are in search of stability the vape industry looks increasingly unable to afford. The vape industry however isn’t all doom and gloom however.

Growing Pains

The vapor market has continued to expand among traditional vape businesses, with the American vapor industry pulling in over $13 billion annually. New shops continue to open and the array of products continue to innovate. But that innovation has been disproportionately fueled by the advent of pod systems. The JUUL from JUUL Labs has become a juggernaut in the vaping world. After investment from Altria, JUUL is expected to account for over a 1/5 of the vape market by itself as it is forecasted to hit $3.4 billion in sales. While this performance is impressive, the impact that JUUL has left on the market has been mixed. The modern teen vaping epidemic has been fueled, in no small part, by illegal acquisition of JUUL devices and pods by underage vapers. The rise of the verb “JUULing” has become the most familiar term to consumers outside the vapor industry for vaping. For many, it is the only term they will ever know when it comes to the vapor industry. The public outcry following reporting and studies on the vapor epidemic have done immeasurable harm to the public perception of the vapor industry, with parents and public health groups aggressively conflating the vapor industry as a whole with JUUL’s pod device. It becomes incredibly difficult to see a path forward to reclaiming the public image of vaping as a vanguard for good or a product for smokers looking to transition away from combustible tobacco. This negative public perception may not be the albatross on the neck of the vapor industry it may seem. A central tenet to the vapor industry’s ideology since its inception has always been to appeal to smokers. A public perception of pod systems being a negative force could allow traditional vape companies to focus on converting smokers moving forward.

The nature of vaping looking to convert smokers has long been a successful market strategy. Despite acknowledgements by the FDA regarding the necessity of flavors in vape juices to stop them from returning to smoking, draft guidance was still issued to propose eliminating flavors. While it seems obvious that these fights will be tied up in the courts long past the August 8th, 2021 deadline, there still exists a salient public conversation to be had about traditional vaping and smokers. Those solutions will most likely have to be pursued legislatively and advance action by companies like JUUL doesn’t paint the most optimistic of pictures. Late in 2018, JUUL pulled its flavored pods from retail stores, a proactive action most likely aimed at getting ahead of an expected FDA decision to ban flavors from stores, but likely also a means to tamp down on both governmental and public perception that their selling of flavors in retail stores – particularly convenience and drug stores – was contributing to the perception of JUUL as being a driving force in the teen vaping epidemic. But, even a company as large as JUUL can be bamboozled by the workings of the FDA. Half a year later and no action has been taken by the FDA on the regulation of flavors, nor has the FDA begun to implement any actions on PMTA filings.

The requirements of filings for the PMTA is a testy subject in the vape industry. The reality is that very few vape companies have the expendable capital to explore the process of properly submitting a PMTA. While there is no conclusive literature supporting the material cost of an e-cigarette being accepted by the PMTA process, it is estimated that the process could easily reach into the millions of dollars for all of the requisite lab testing, toxicology reports, registration fees and supporting literature to bring through a successful application for each individual SKU that a company produces. Practically speaking, you could submit a SKU for vapor product for a PMTA for $20,000, but your chances of getting your product accepted are virtually non-existent thanks to the FDA’s ludicrously high standards of the acceptance of what they deem as tobacco products.

The Future of the Vapor Industry

All of this leaves an obvious picture of the future if the FDA sticks to its guns. As vaping companies shut down or transition away from vape into other industries, pod systems supported by the major tobacco manufacturers – colloquially referred to as Big Tobacco – will slowly become the vaping industry in America. The irony of this situation should be lost on no one as the aggressive efforts to regulate the vapor industry to address products that may be unsafe or a potential threat to the public well-being vis-à-vis the teenage vaping epidemic, would ultimately result in the very devices at the center of these controversies becoming the only thing available on the market.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that only multi-billion dollar juggernauts like Altria and JUUL Labs will end up being able to get their products through the expensive and time-consuming PMTA process. As they pare down their product offerings in preparation for future industry changes, they will be able to easily convert their products into FDA approved devices as the country complains about teens “JUULing” well into the 2020s, 2030s and beyond. While this may look grim in the United States, it doesn’t present a fatal outlook of the technology itself. Losing America as a market is a brutal hit for any industry, but the vapor industry remains strong abroad in Europe, Japan and China with markets rapidly growing in countries like Australia, South Africa and South Korea.

As vaping is explored scientifically into the future, additional large markets are primed and ready to open for legal sales in the Middle East (UAE) and Africa (Western Africa and Kenya). Vaping is not on a downswing by any measure globally. Investment in globally focused brands will keep companies founded in America operating internationally for many years to come. But it is hard not to lament the overly aggressive regulatory strategy, that seems almost market-tailored for Big Tobacco’s dominance to enter into the vape space. Vape was founded as a way to migrate society away from combustible tobacco. It was a cultural force for years before being hijacked and branded by the teen vaping epidemic. It seems profoundly sad that an industry born and developed in America could see itself become snuffed out by people rushing to judgements based off of one crisis while simultaneously doing everything but addressing the underlying issues with the crisis itself. But this isn’t to cast a shadow of gloom over the vapor industry. As has been said before, we’ll see the vapor industry continue to thrive for many years to come through legal challenges and protracted court battles from the traditional vaping industry’s largest juggernauts.
The future of vaping remains uncertain, but the genie is already outside of the lamp and vaping will forever remain a globally dominant market-force.

5 Vaping Trends to Try in 2019

It’s strange to think that just a few years ago, vaping was pretty uncommon. Now, it’s hard to get away from e-cigarettes. And the people who vape are passionate about it! Vapers are always looking for vape juices and gadgets to improve their experience. If you’re one of those people, you’ll be pleased to know about the exciting vaping innovations that are happening in 2019. Here are some of the hottest vaping trends right now!

Nicotine-Free Vape Juice

Vaping is a great option if you want to stop smoking. But if you’re using e-juice that contains nicotine, you’re just furthering your nicotine dependence. It’s no wonder that nicotine-free vape juices are on the rise in 2019. If you use e-juice without nicotine, you still experience a sensation that is similar to smoking but without the negative long-term effects of nicotine. This year, expect to see more vape juices with zero nicotine.

Accessible Vaping Mods

Vape mods are nothing new, but in 2019 expect to see more vape pens that are compatible with modifications. This year mods will become more widely available to the average consumer. Some of these mods include ways to change your vape’s temperature and ways to make vaping even safer. Check out Moon Mountain’s store for some cool vape mods to take your vaping experience to the next level!

Vaping On-the-Go

As vaping becomes more common, people are more open to vaping in public around others. Because of this, the demand for smaller vaping pens that are easy to use on-the-go has increased. In 2019, expect to keep seeing smaller vaping pens that lend themselves portability.

More Vegetable Glycerin

One of the major reasons people love vaping so much is the great-tasting flavors. Vegetable glycerin (VG) is one vape juice ingredient you can expect to see more of in 2019. The substance is non-toxic and produces more vapor. It’s usually made from soybean, coconut, or palm oils. VG is a common ingredient in sweeteners. When it’s in your vape juice, you can expect to taste a little extra sweetness. In addition, vegetable glycerin is thick, which makes it more soothing on your throat than most PG vape juices.

Better Vape Designs

The longer that any product is the around, the more time there is to work out any kinks in its design. The same is true of vaping! As more and more people try and enjoy vaping, not only is the quantity of vaping devices going up but so is the quality of vaping products. The standard for what makes a good vape pen continues to rise. People want more out of their vape pens. They want vape pens that last longer and are more efficient. In 2019, vape manufacturers are delivering in full force!
