The rush to enter the CBD products and beverage market is akin to the local big box store opening at Midnight for Black Friday… Everybody wants to get in now! BEVNET, a CBD market publication, published a story after a west coast expo in 2018, which highlighted this rush to market. In the article an industry executive noted that he: ‘… no longer goes a day without taking CBD. Since first deciding to explore the space, he has immersed himself in functional beverage brands building around CBD, sampling hundreds of products over the course of the past year.’ During that time, (he) became a true believer in CBD”s physical and mental benefits. ‘The amount of people involved in CBD is higher than anything we”ve ever seen… Eighteen months ago I don”t think we had even one call from a CBD company. In the last ninety days, I think we spoke to 20 different companies that do different things.’ Active cannabis companies in the markets this week include Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTC:ETST) , Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY), New Age Beverages Corporation (NASDAQ:NBEV), The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ:WTER) (TSX-V: WTER), The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (OTC:TGODF) (TSX:TGOD).
An owner of a beverage incubator, told BevNET that at least 20 different entities have approached him with concepts. But while he recognizes the popularity of CBD, the laws and science are not yet in a place where he could feel comfortable working with a brand built around the ingredient. The article concluded with the following: from an industry insider: ‘I think the mentality that will be successful in the CBD and cannabis product and beverage industry in general will be those who are skilled at guerilla marketing getting into the consumer”s mind to make them a pro consumer, so that they really understand what the issues are and who they should be buying their products from… For example, which product claims really have substance, which claims really have clinical support.’
