Don’t forget that this Sunday is Mother’s Day. This year, while our days seem to all blur together due to “work from home” orders, many social distancers will be looking for ways to celebrate mom from afar.
While some states may be loosening pandemic regulations, shopping malls and storefront retail vendors in most places remain shuttered, which will make picking up a gift for mom even more challenging than usual.
It’s been stressful! For those who remain in isolation or family members unable to travel to see mom (or vice versa), delivery will definitely be preferred. And after so many weeks cooped up indoors, mom is probably about ready to try something new, too—like CBD-infused products.
Cannabis market data firm Headset analyzed product category sales in California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, comparing figures from Mother’s Day weekend last year to the prior weekend, and reported, “category sales show a large increase within topicals (11.3 percent) followed by tincture and sublingual. Topicals average item price decreased by close to 3 percent comparing the two time periods.
“Diving further into topical segments,” Headset continued, “we see an increase of 32 percent for both ‘Bath salts, Soaks, and Scrubs’ and ‘Transdermal Products;’ then, an increase of 9 percent for ‘Lotion, Salves, Gels, and Creams;’ and a strong 7 percent increase in ‘Massage Oil and Lube.’”
In a separate study, online marketplace LeafLink found that last year, “during the week after Mother’s Day, the overall market share of cartridges increased by 8.54 percent compared to its average weekly increase of 0.94 percent during the three months prior.”
