Cannabis Drinks Expo, a massive B2B trade show for all hemp and marijuana-based beverage brands, will return this November. The expo provides the cannabis and beverage industry to intertwine in a uniquely modern way to do business, learn about the product category, and source some of the best brands in the game. While COVID restrictions have taken many events, including trade shows, off the table for the past year and a half, the Cannabis Drink Expo is officially green-lit for Chicago and San Francisco.
The CBD and THC-infused beverage market is currently positioned to become the fastest-growing marijuana niche in the world, lead by female buyers, according to Cannabis.net. “While most cannabis products are male dominated at the checkout counter, early stats show females are the biggest cannabis beverage consumer group by far,” the online magazine wrote. Recently, female pop star Tove Lo collaborated with infused-beverage company Cann to create a peachy, summery, caffeinated, cannabis-infused drink that you’re sure to see at this year’s expo as an awesome example of females working their magic in the manufacturing realm, as well.
The expo, hosted by the Beverage Trade Network, is the first marijuana beverages-only conference in America. The aim is for it to highlight the skyrocketing legal marijuana and hemp markets and provide general insight into the future of cannabis-infused beverages. There are many questions that arise throughout the expo which help to inform manufacturers and buyers as they forge onward in the industry, such as “Should you do a CBD from hemp drink?” again according to Cannabis.net. The Cannabis Drink Expo is a must-attend event for those curiously looking at the future of the budding U.S. marijuana industry. It will “provide a vital networking opportunity for political analysts, medical experts, and those involved in the development and implementation of legalized cannabis into new markets,” the magazine reported.
The expo also covers “key issues surrounding the likelihood and timescale for legalization to other countries, as well as the impact of legalized cannabis on the traditional alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks market,” according to the event’s website. Per the description, the Cannabis Drink Expo is “a vital networking opportunity for political analysts, medical experts and those involved in the development and implementation of legalized cannabis into new markets.”
