Spring is in full swing across the country! The weather is heating up and everyone is looking forward to enjoying outdoor events and activities. Since thirst-quenching cannabis beverages are going to be part of these warm-weather activities for many consumers, it’s the perfect time to check out some of the year’s top THC sodas and other cannabis beverages.
Infused beverages represent a small, and static share of total cannabis edibles sales, bringing in just 6% of total edibles sales across BDSA-tracked markets (AZ, CA, CO, FL, IL, MD, MA, MI, MO, NV, OR, PA) in Q4 2021. That said, THC beverages are on the rise.
The top beverage growth markets tracked by BDSA were California, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Missouri, with these four states seeing beverages more than double their dollar sales between Q4 2020 and Q4 2021.
