Every part of the marijuana market has been steadily growing as recreational and medical marijuana legalization sweeps across America. This has led to the birth of numerous businesses looking to cash in on one of the fastest-growing markets in the country. Every day, millions of dollars flow into the cannabis market and the number of companies looking to make a nice chunk of change is skyrocketing, so it can be easy to lose track of who’s who in the cannabis world. Today, we’re going to take a look at some popular marijuana-related brands currently rocking the market. While I’ve mentioned a few of these companies in past articles, I think it’s important to recognize the companies who are truly meeting cannabis users’ needs and creating innovative, useful products and services that you should be on the lookout for in 2019.
Dabstract is one of Washington’s finest when it comes to the concentrate market. They’re more than just concentrate makers, though. They’re artisans with an unrivaled love for their craft and the customers they’ve been serving since 2000. All of their products are locally sourced in Washington. Some of their top-shelf products include vape cartridges, PAX pods, THCA, live resin, shatter, and that’s just barely scratching the surface..
During the , Dabstract won two awards. Their Strawberry Banana Live Resin Opal Sugar won first place in this Best THC Live Resin category. They also won overall for best THC Distillate. I think it’s safe to say that you can expect a lot from this award-winning brand in 2019. If you’re lucky enough to live in Washington or traveling there anytime soon, it’s worth getting your hands on their quality concentrates.
Love’s Oven has been baking edibles in Colorado since 2009 and providing their patients with organic edibles meant to help with pain and other ailments. Love’s Oven crafts their products with high-quality ingredients that are all-natural and sourced locally.
They offer a wide variety of products infused with THC, CBD, or a mixture of both, with varying potencies. The 22 products they make include yummy things like classic and salted caramels, turtle brownies, baklava cookie bar bites, and cheddar crackers, just to name a few. You should check out their product page to see for yourself.
In 2016, they also opened up their own extraction lab where they’ve been creating concentrates under a new brand called Concentrated Love. Customers can expect the same level of commitment to tradition and quality from Concentrated Love that they get from Love’s Oven.
If you’re interested in trying Love’s Oven, they’re available at most medical and recreational dispensaries in Colorado. Unfortunately, edible connoisseurs outside of Colorado are out of luck. However, with the great success they’ve seen locally with their product, here’s hoping that they’re able to expand their market soon.
DynaVap, a Wisconsin vape manufacturer, has been swiftly changing the game with their revolutionary product. They offer a line of battery-free vaporizers that don’t require recharging or any kind of electrical power. All you need to heat up a DynaVap is a butane torch lighter, making them popular with outdoorsy types as well as connoisseurs. They are beloved by their fans because their products are unique and truly stand apart from competitors in a way most vaporizer manufacturers just can’t claim. Their devices are slightly bigger than a cigarette and have a minimalist, mechanical look, allowing users to smoke discreetly.
They’re the go-to for many marijuana and vape enthusiasts, and you can chart their rising popularity on sites like Reddit and Instagram. While DynaVap saw a lot of success in 2018, you can expect them to further dominate the market in 2019.
CCELL is a cartridge manufacturer based in China, and they are currently undertaking a rapid takeover of the vape cartridge market in America. They’ve made a huge splash in the United States and are expanding into Canada as well. A number of popular marijuana brands have already started switching over to filling CCELL ceramic cartridges with their cannabis oil. CCELL guarantees a zero-maintenance design that is leakproof and engineered to offer the consumer the biggest and most flavorful vapor clouds.
Other than offering the purest taste, CCELL’s cartridges are made with a ceramic element that’ll burn evenly and perform consistently, unlike wick-based cartridges. However, ceramic vape cartridges aren’t the only thing they make. They also produce disposable vapes and handheld rechargeable vape batteries compatible with a number of cartridges and pods that are currently available on the market. You can expect even more marijuana companies to start using CCELL’s cartridges for their products in 2019 as they expand throughout America.
Oregon Genetics Cannabis
One drawback to the rapid growth of the marijuana industry is the lack of certainty regarding the quality of what you’re smoking. Labeling isn’t always accurate, and oftentimes you can never really be sure that what you’re smoking is exactly what it claims to be. Enter Oregon Genetics.
Even though there’s already another concentrate maker on this list, Oregon Genetics more than deserves their spot for the innovation they’ve introduced in the industry. Oregon Genetics’ main focus when producing their concentrates is quality and purity. Through their “Ultra Refinement” process, they’re able to provide Washington and Oregon with some of the highest quality products anywhere, with a level of purity that’s basically unheard of. Some of the products they offer are vape cartridges, THCA crystals, and live resin.
To top it all off, Oregon Genetics grows all their marijuana in the most natural and sustainable way. Their concern for the environment is refreshing and makes them a leader in the industry. Hopefully in 2019 and the years to come, other companies will follow Oregon Genetics’ sustainable example and lead us ito a more natural marijuana market free of pesticides.
Whoopi & Maya
Since the majority of marijuana consumers generally smoke flower, vape, or eat edibles, companies like Whoopi & Maya often don’t get the recognition they deserve. They’re a cannabis-infused topical company. Whoopi & Maya was created by celebrity Whoopi Goldberg in collaboration with seven-time High Times Cannabis Cup award-winner and founder of Om Edibles Maya Elisabeth. Their motto is “Soak, Savor, Rub & Relax,” with an appropriately named line of products to match. Their Soak products are THC- and CBD-infused Epsom salts that come in scents like lavender and are meant to be used in the bath. Their Savor product is a raw cacao spread infused with THC or a mix of CBD and TCH. They also offer a body balm as part of their Rub line and herbal tinctures for their Relax products.
Whoopi & Maya is marketed towards women and they have a focus on helping with women’s health issues and pain management. Their products also serve as luxurious self-care and home spa treatments. Even though their marketing language is very female-focused, men shouldn’t shy away from their infused bath soaks and body rubs. They’re the perfect way to relax at the end of the night. Their products are manufactured in California and available in California and Colorado. With so many women seeking alternative methods for their everyday issues, it’s nice to have a company like Whoopi & Maya trying their to figure out how to bring them relief through the combined power of marijuana and tried and true herbal remedies.
While this list is a great place to start from when searching for marijuana companies to follow in 2019, make sure you keep an eye out for other businesses on the rise. The legal market is new and there are constantly fledgling businesses popping up. Even well-known brands outside of the marijuana industry, such as Malboro and Lagunitas, have begun to invest in cannabis. As more states start to see the benefits of legalization, you can expect more new companies to form and current ones to start expanding into more states and countries.
