Edibles have emerged as one of the fastest-growing areas of the legal cannabis market. The sheer variety of edibles makes them attractive to consumers, especially those looking for alternatives to smoking marijuana.
The issue with edibles since the beginning of the legal marijuana market has been consistency in the experience. Many products have been all over the map when it comes to doses. Smart companies are looking for a way to eliminate that issue.
One leader in this area is Los Angeles-based Punch Edibles. Building on a foundation of providing a consistent edible experience in a flavorful chocolate bar has made Punch Bars a popular choice for those who want to try edibles or improve on their experience with other brands.
The Demand For Edibles Is High
Consumers looking for an alternative to smoking marijuana have turned to edibles in growing numbers. So have dispensaries looking to stock the hottest items on their shelves.
ArcView Research, which specializes in the cannabis market, reported that cannabis sales worldwide reached $12.2 billion in 2018. That number is expected to rise in 2019. The increasing popularity of edibles is one major factor driving that growth.
Two of the most popular areas have been chocolate edibles and edibles infused with CBD, a naturally produced chemical in marijuana that does not get you high. New Food Magazine reported that chocolate edible sales alone increased 166% in 2018.
Clearly, the demand is there. But the consistency issue has presented a problem. That’s where Punch Edibles is making a difference.
Meeting Consumer Demand
In designing its products, Punch Edibles focused on addressing some of the biggest issues people have with edibles. In addition to consistent experience, that also includes edibles that are size appropriate, flavorful and potent. The resulting line of Punch Bar products is what the company calls “a sensibly sized, high-dose edible.” The bar allows users to enjoy the experience with great flavor and fewer calories or sugar.
Success has led to expansion. Punch Edibles now has six different product lines and 30 different types of chocolate bar.
It’s also led to many awards. The various Punch Bar types have won 1st place for edibles at the So-Cal Stoners Cup. They also won awards at the Abra Ca Dabs competition and the High Times Cannabis Cup.
Punch Edibles also has given back to the community. The Punch Cares program gives free edible bars to qualifying veterans for medicinal pain management.
Products From Punch
It’s worth noting the product lineup from Punch Edibles just from the standpoint of the sheer variety. Punch Edibles has kept up with consumer demand, and the line of products shows how widespread and diverse that demand has become.
