Retail knowledge and hashish merchandise to spice up your 420 IQ

Although 420 has become a national holiday for consumers, it is usually a very busy day for cannabis retailers. For operators and managers looking to maximize their profits next week, make sure you have exactly what your customers and patients are looking for. We have insightful data from leading industry authorities including Headset, Leaflink, I Heart Jane, Springbig, Lantern, and Ganja Goddess Cannabis products to prepare for the big day.


Headset analyzed data in both the US and Canada to determine which product categories saw the largest increase in average daily sales in the week leading up to April 20 (April 14-20) of last year. In the US, beverages (54 percent), topical products (41 percent), and concentrates (41 percent) saw the greatest growth. Canadian consumers were trending on topics in large numbers in the week leading up to last year’s 420 holidays (up 131 percent). Concentrates were also popular (up 50 percent), followed by vape pens (up 14 percent).

Based on the results from Headset, retailers may want to consider these products for the next week:

LeafLink studies US sales for the full month up to 420. Last year, the company saw sales declined 9 percent across its market for that period. However, it did so after three months when the average growth rate was 12 percent. This could be related to consumers stocking up in anticipation of COVID-19-related shutdowns. LeafLink also saw sales surge near 420, with sales increasing in the weeks from April 6th to 13th by 18 percent and 14 percent respectively. According to LeafLink data, flower was the most popular product category with 420 (30 percent of all sales). This was followed by cartridges (28 percent) and packaged flowers (16 percent).

Here are 420 product suggestions based on LeafLink’s findings:
