Cannabis dispensaries are legal in many US states and they’re popping up all over the place. The dispensary business is booming!
If you’re thinking about opening a cannabis dispensary, you need to know what products sell best in order to stand out from your competition. In this article, I’ll share with you some of the top-selling cannabis products and how you can increase sales by carrying them.
1. Marijuana Flower
Almost everyone loves high-grade cannabis flower. But that’s not to say that the market doesn’t have a place for your average to slightly above average pot. Some consumers actually want to buy cannabis flower with a lower THC content, and they don’t mind if the buds are less dense than those found at an elite dispensary.
It’s important that you understand what your customers need before stocking up on marijuana flower products for your store or recreational club. But how can we make sure we’re not buying product that won’t move?
Check the wholesale marijuana flower options in your region. Try before you buy to make sure it has your seal of approval.
They say don’t get high on your own supply. But how else are you to know what experience you’re offering consumers?
Your flower is going to be your top seller. Of course, you might find your extracts sell better if you’re stocking some special sauce. But typically, dispensaries sell flower the most out of anything they offer.
Think of the strains. Offer various indicas, sativas, and hybrids to appeal to a wide audience. These come at different quality levels, and as such, it’s good to have a few options at each price point.
Mid to low-grade bud is cheaper. But it’s great for making edibles. You’ll likely find some of your clients purchasing ounces of this stuff regularly, especially if they’re the DIY type.
But sometimes, it’s just nice to smoke something that’s not super potent. Other times, the low-grade affordable options sell out even faster than the 25%+ THC strains.
As you shop wholesale cannabis, keep in mind that if you’re buying from the bigger grow-ops, so is everyone else. To set your dispensary out among the rest, buy from small local grows that use organic and sustainable cultivation techniques. The buds are better, and most people appreciate when it’s grown with less impact on the environment.
2. Vaporizers (vapes) for Extracts & Dry Herb
Vapes are perfect for the people who would rather not inhale burned cannabis product. The combustion tends to mask the flavor, not to mention the health problems associated with inhaling smoke.
Vaping extracts and dry herbs give the full flavor of the product while offering direct access to the terpene profile. But they’re also quite portable, unless it’s a desktop vape. And the small devices can be discreet because they don’t enhance the scent of the cannabis buds and concentrates.
Stock your shelves with vaporizers and make sure your budtenders are knowledgeable about each. Patients, in particular, really enjoy vaping because many of them want the instantaneous effects without having to smoke. But younger generations are also into vaping because they grew up with it.
We recommend the Volcano as a high-end vape. But make sure to carry other affordable options for the people who would rather spend less than $100 on a device!
3. Hemp Wraps
Hemp wraps are taking the industry by storm! These are made from the hemp plant, meaning it offers a cleaner tasting smoke when compared to tobacco blunt options.
Similar to RAW Papers, hemp wraps offer a blunt-like experience in a more natural way than tobacco wraps. Rather than influencing the experience with nicotine, these wraps are nicotine-free, which makes them more appealing to some.
Giving your customer organic hemp options for their seshes and they’ll be sure to thank you. But as you’re looking for hemp wraps, keep in mind, these are more popular among younger consumers. So, if you’re serving older patients and other consumers, hemp wraps might not be so hot in your dispensary.
Cannabis dispensaries are popping up all over the place. It seems like every other day there is another one opening in your town. With so many cannabis dispensary operators out there, it can be difficult to figure out what to carry and how to make your store stand out from the rest.
We hope this list has provided you with some insight into what you should carry in your dispensary and how to determine whether or not these products could work for you. Keep pushing high-quality product and remember, the more options you have, the more your customers will appreciate all the hard work you’ve put into your operation!
