Fall 2023 Buyers’ Guide

Dispensary Buyers Guide Fall 2023

The cannabis industry is in the midst of a generational changing of the guard, and with that comes a more diverse consumer demographic, new preferences for “go-to” products, and added pressure on brands to speak to a younger audience that prioritizes social responsibility.

As brands continue to compete against one another for a prime spot at the top of the food chain, they’re looking to Gen Z for clues. The age cohort—born between 1996 and the early 2010s—is second in consumer numbers only to millennials, and about half of them have yet to reach the age of legal majority. Within the next ten years, zoomers will dominate retail, and the way they shop is redirecting how many industries present themselves.


Software company KayaPush reported a major product-preference shift in the past two years that reflects younger generations’ retail habits. While flower and concentrates dominated the sales charts in 2021, 2022 and 2023 have seen vape sales rise by 5 percent, edibles and beverages by 10 percent, and pre-rolls by a whopping 12 percent. Within this context, it’s not hard to imagine why traditionally popular brands like PAX and Jetty Extracts recently launched their first-ever gummies, or why BRĒZ was able to roll out an infused tonic without anyone batting an eye.

It also explains why brands like Baked Bros and Lab 11 are dedicated to using product proceeds to give back to their communities—or at least why they’re beginning to be more vocal about these efforts. Young consumers are the future of the industry, and they’re also much more likely to trust brands that are small, local, and determined to make a positive impact on the community and the world. Couple a genuine do-good attitude with high-quality products, and you’ve got a winning modern brand.

Another trend companies are paying attention to is the rise of female consumers and the different ways they enjoy engaging with the plant. Headset reported although the market remains male-dominated, women account for more than 45 percent of sales that fall into the “wellness” category: tinctures and sublinguals, topicals, capsules, and edibles. And since men largely still prefer to consume by smoking flower, it’s safe to say the past year’s shift in product popularity reflects growing consumer diversity and the increase of female-focused brands in the space. From Ladylike and Lavinia to Edie Parker and Papers + Ink, more brands are extending a hand to welcome women, offering products that bring a refreshing alternative to the stodgy “stoner bro” aesthetic with which we’ve been forced to reckon for the past few decades.

mg Magazine’s Fall 2023 Buyers’ Guide features some of the best new products across all categories, highlighting what brands are doing right and explaining why consumers will look for their names on your shelves. Whether you want to reach a new audience, expand your offerings, or explore what’s hip and hot in 2023, we’ve got you covered.
