CBD Beverages Shaking Up the Industry

As a way to improve their mental wellness and overall health, more consumers are turning to cannabis instead of alcohol. 

According to the latest Evergi Wellness Trends reports, Gen Zers are using cannabis as a replacement for alcohol. Of consumers that said they were drinking less, about a third of Gen Zers are reaching for cannabis as their primary alcohol substitute. 

Because of this increased interest in improving health, CBD beverages have also become popular in recent years. According to a report from GlobalNewsWire, the CBD market size was valued at $9.1 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $59.3 billion by 2030. 

Many brands have been taking advantage of this rise in popularity, debuting a variety of delicious CBD beverages. From price to potency to easily accessible certificates of analysis (COAs), here are some noteworthy brands to check out:
