Although flower still reigns king in the world of cannabis, edibles are quickly catching pace as one of the most in-demand products on the market today, making up roughly 23% of total sales in 2020. This statistic holds true in both legal and illegal areas. As a matter of fact, in my own experience, I have found that edibles are even more popular in states with strict cannabis regulations, where variety and more modern products like concentrates are much harder to find. Edibles are a fun and discreet way to use cannabis, but when the packaging for products that are extremely high in THC begins to closely resemble that of store-brand candies, to the point that adults AND children are mistaking them regularly, then we have a serious problem. Not only is it a concerning safety issue, but what about trademark violations? Several big-name candy producers, like Wrigley and Hershey, are suing cannabis companies over these look-alike treats.
