Spring 2022 Buyers’ Guide: New Product Roundup

Shelves need a refresh? This spring’s crop of new products will revitalize your selection and attract customers across all demographics.

MG annual spring buyers' guide header text

New cannabis products are coming into the market at an incredible clip, and customers are embracing the diversity on shelves. Standards of manufacturing, cultivation, and brand positioning are improving around the country, giving cannabis consumers an unprecedented breadth of form factors, flavors, and feels.

The most noticeable thing about mg Magazine’s 2022 spring buyers’ guide is fewer products hail from California. While the Golden State has been the source of much of the past decade’s brand and product innovation, compelling new companies in the Midwest and on the East Coast are helping those fast-growing markets take huge leaps forward. We considered exciting new products in existing categories while also giving a nod to emerging niche categories. Pre-rolls, which in 2021 continued their trend upward in category market share, are represented extensively here in a wide variety of nuanced forms. Beverages continue to bubble up nationally, and brands from multistate operators (MSOs) have begun hitting their stride, becoming some of the best-selling and most widely available products in the country.
