Halloween is growing bigger for the cannabis industry as business owners have realized that the holiday now ranks as number three in sales according to Eaze data. Headset Cannabis Intelligence found that all of the cannabis categories rose in sales except for topicals and capsules for the holiday. There are parties being planned and marketing dollars are rising along with sales as cannabis companies are cashing in on the holiday fun.
As cannabis moves into the mainstream, customers want products to parallel flavor trends they see on shelves at their grocery store. “What better way to do that than with a pumpkin spice blondie,” said Mike Appezzato, co-founder, and CEO of GOOD CO-OP. He said that Eaze customers across California will be able to purchase a box of three (3) Pumpkin Spice Blondies, retailed at $15.00 to be delivered in 20 minutes on average, beginning October 18th and available through November. Oakland-based cannabis company GOOD CO-OP launched the edible blondie exclusively on the Eaze platform, a marijuana marketplace that’ll ensure your treat gets delivered in 20 minutes or less. It’s a delicious mix of organic pumpkin, spice, and everything nice (10mg of THC), the blondie is a perfect treat to snack on while watching your favorite scary movie on a cozy night in or to liven up a Halloween potluck.
