Medical Marijuana Patients Are Losing Their Taste For Smoking

It's a brand-new market, but according to the folks over at the Marijuana Business Daily alternative consumption methods are already becoming popular among Illinois medical marijuana patients who don't want to smoke the old-fashioned way.

According to Associated Press reports, since the first dispensaries opened last November infused products and concentrates accounted for 11 percent – or roughly $132,000 – of the $1.2 million in sales at Illinois dispensaries in January.

Medical patients who usually require high doses and don't want to smoke as part of their treatment are among those who prefer infused products and concentrates. Apparently, they're also popular with tourists who are inexperienced and want a more discreet way of consuming cannabis.

As more cultivators start manufacturing these products - and consumers become more familiar with them - they'll likely account for an even bigger share of total sales, according to MBD columnist Becky Olson.

In the third quarter of 2015, edibles, topicals and concentrates accounted for 25 percent of total recreational marijuana sales in Washington state.


The "Better Now" singer will release the first products from his new cannabis brand in the coming weeks. Post Malone first teased the arrival of his new Shaboink line of cannabis products back in May, and now it looks like Post is finally ready to bring launch the new brand with the help of premium cannabis brand Sherbinskis. For the launch Post Malone worked with Sherbinskis' founder Mario Guzman to develop the 'Posty OG' terpene profile that will be featured in Shaboink's non-intoxicating hemp pre-rolls.
