The Future of Infused Products

It's easy to toss around buzz words, such as micro-dosing, senior demos and luxe-ing the leaf, but what are the deeper cannabis trends that will reveal themselves, engage consumers, change purchasing behaviors and have staying power? In this discussion, Wana Brands CEO Nancy Whiteman will explore the future of infused cannabis products, including how to get out ahead of where the market is going while still running a profitable business today; and how to spot a real trend and not just marketing hype.
