Hemp candy is an increasingly popular CBD product type that spans well beyond the classic CBD hemp gummy. In fact, brands can now outsource countless hemp candy wholesale types, including various flavors, textures, and cannabinoid profiles.
Today, we’ll outline some of our most exciting new wholesale hemp candies. We’ll also discuss some reasons we think hemp candies will be the next best-selling hemp product on the market.
Beyond Gummies: The Wide World of Hemp Candies
Brands that want to introduce hemp candy to their product line often search for the best hemp gummy manufacturer to help make that happen. And though gummies are certainly a top-seller, their potential to attract a new audience is limited due to the sheer number of brands that sell them.
Fortunately, there is an easier way to outshine the competition – by selling all-new hemp candies! To be clear, hemp candies refer to sugar-based confections that are infused with hemp-based cannabinoids. Different types of hemp candies include CBD lollipops, delta 8 caramel chews, hemp D9 fruit chews, and of course, custom hemp gummies.
Why People Love Hemp Candy
There are many reasons people love hemp candies, making it easy to understand their overwhelming attraction. Notably, the CBD-infused confection market is the fastest growing segment in the hemp space thanks to its ease of consumption and delicious flavor options.
What’s more, hemp candies are wonderfully effective, sublingually delivering cannabinoids directly to the bloodstream in a matter of minutes. Importantly, sublingual consumption improves hemp product bioavailability, meaning that smaller doses can have a larger impact. Consumers appreciate the improved effectiveness and the money they can save compared to hemp edible products.
Finally, hemp candies are a popular way to enjoy different cannabinoid profiles, including minor and alternative cannabinoids like delta 8, hemp D9, Delta 10, and HHC-infused candy. According to this recent Forbes article, about 6 percent of American adults have consumed alt cannabinoids like D8 and D10 within the last six months, and that number is quickly growing. Hence, these unique hemp candies infused with alternative cannabinoids will likely be a top-seller for many years to come. Brands that wish to get ahead of this trend should add hemp candies to their product lines quickly, preferably before the holiday season.
Things to Ask Your CBD Hemp Candy Supplier
Adding a new product to your product line takes careful consideration. First, you must source a reputable hemp candy supplier with a track record of success. To ensure your hemp supplier meets your needs, ask your prospective CBD suppliers the following questions.
Do you provide custom options?
Some suppliers only provide white-label options, meaning they create their hemp candies according to standard recipes and procedures, then slap your branded label on it and call it yours. Others offer private-label options, which means that the brand can customize their candies with variable cannabinoid profiles, ingredient lists, and so on. Before you hire your next CBD supplier, make sure their manufacturing policy meets your requirements and requests.
Do you provide COAs with your products?
A COA, or Certificate of Analysis, should come standard with every hemp product order. What’s more, the COA should clearly outline things like cannabinoid value, residual solvents, contaminants, and so on. These COAs are important to your customers and also a vital hemp business document, so make sure each batch includes third-party-issued COAs.
What are your MOQs?
MOQ stands for Minimum Order Quantity, which refers to the minimum amount of a product you must order from the manufacturer. Importantly, lower MOQs usually include a higher price per product, whereas higher order quantities often result in an overall larger discount. When interviewing a prospective supplier, ask about MOQs and strongly consider how those MOQs fit into your business trajectory.
What is your average lead time?
Short lead times can help brands bring products to market quicker than others, though private-label products could take longer. However, average hemp product lead times should range from about four to eight weeks with clear communication along the way.
