Companies in this vertical market branded consumer products that contain, are made from, or can be used to consume cannabis and/or hemp.
We think brands will be fundamental to the future of cannabis. In more mature industries, the most prominent players are those who handle the branding and marketing of consumer products. But as of early 2020, there were few winners in the cannabis brand game. For investors, there may be opportunities to secure early investments in this vertical’s most promising players.
We expect successful brands will take steps to secure a broad distribution network, deliver a consistent experience, and motivate repeat purchases by marketing their products around certain consumer values.
