https://www.buzzsprout.com/256739/1878902

 This week, we welcome Spiros Malandrakis to the show, Alcohol industry analyst and researcher at Euromonitor International. Spiros has been providing prescient and pioneering insights on the evolution, branding and innovation within the global alcoholic drinks industry for the past decade and has recently broadened his scope by looking into the emerging cannabis drinks market. 

In this episode, we delve into the cannabis drinks market, evaluating current drinking trends amongst Gen Z, and discovering how the ‘green intersection’ will shape Fast Moving Consumer Goods of the future.

We really enjoyed this in depth discussion with Spiros. If you’d like to find out more about him, and for resources mentioned within the show, click through to our show notes here: https://www.cannabis-conversation.com/blogs/episode33

Episode Summary

• Spiros describes the western alcohol market and the ascending ‘green wave’ of consumerism as ‘The green intersection’. He was one of the first alcohol analysts to associate the two, noting that the decline of one can create opportunities for the other.
• Non alcoholic beverages are preferred by Gen Z who are one of the most health conscious generations.
• The vast majority of people consume alcohol which they associate with their lifestyle and which says something about them when they hold it in their hands. 
• The alcohol industry has seen the decline in drinking by youngsters who are also binge drinking less. Their main fears are that photographic imagery which associated them with drinking may come back to haunt them later on in life.
• Spiros believes that intoxication has become a taboo, although it shouldn’t be something we are afraid of or ashamed of. 
• In summary, alcohol consumption has been declining for a number of years, a trend which has coincided with the emergence of ‘green’ discourses and eco living.
• Spiros disagrees with the viewpoint that dominates conferences in europe – that cannabis consumption will not become recreational and is heading in an exclusively medical direction. He believes that all FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) industries will adopt cannabis, disrupting the status quo and changing the landscape as we know it.
• The FMCG market in Europe at the moment is largely dominated by CBD
• Cannabinoids are not water soluble which makes combining them with drinks difficult.
• Spiros predicts the commoditization of cannabis and cannabinoids within the next few years. They will become commodities and we will be able to produce them ourselves instead of them being grown on farms – devaluing the value of large scale grows.
• Within FMCG industries, the emotional connection between a brand and its consumer is very important.
• Spiros predicts that Cannabis 2.0 will hit Canada by the end of the year, this will see edibles and beverages sold online. He also predicts that we will stop categorising cannabis by its stains or types but will be more focused on the feelings and moods it can bring us.

HEXO SELLING CANNABIS AT $4.49 PER GRAM

HEXO SELLING CANNABIS AT $4.49 PER GRAM – RICH TV LIVE – OCTOBER 16, 2019 – According to Statistics Canada’s latest National Cannabis Survey (published on August 15, 2019), almost half—over 40%—of Canadians continue to purchase cannabis from illegal sources, with price being one of the major factors that drive them to the black market. But do they realize that the cannabis they are purchasing is illegal, unregulated, and not tested? That’s what HEXO Corp (“HEXO” or the “Company”) (TSX:HEXO; NYSE:HEXO) set out to quantify.

“It is becoming increasingly difficult for the average consumer to distinguish products that are legal, versus those that are not. Illicit cannabis distributors have gone as far as include the mandated Health Canada warnings and THC disclaimers,” said Sebastien St-Louis, HEXO Corp’s CEO and co-founder. “Illegal cannabis websites are well built, allow consumers to purchase online, and products are delivered to their doors. But we know that illegal cannabis products can—and often—contain heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants, and that concerns me deeply.”

HEXO is committed to playing an important role in eliminating the black market and in protecting public health and safety, and to this end is pleased to announce the launch of Original Stash, its new value brand. Adult-use consumers will now be able to purchase 28 grams (1 oz) at black market prices, at a retail price in Quebec of $125.70 including sales taxes, equivalent to $4.49 a gram all in.

Original Stash’s first product, OS.210, is offered as a hybrid sativa dried flower blend at 12%-18% THC. Original Stash comes in odour-proof and resealable packaging and will be available in SQDC retail stores on October 17, 2019. The product will roll out in the rest of Canada soon after.

“Our aim with Original Stash is to disrupt the illicit market, educate consumers about the value of a regulated and tested product, and drive them to purchase their cannabis legally,” added St-Louis. “We’re now competing directly with the illicit market and providing consumers with an affordable, controlled, quality product. Moreover, we are giving consumers the option of less packaging in a 1 oz format, which we know is a priority for so many.”
