TORONTO, Feb. 19, 2019 /CNW/ - 48North Cannabis Corp. ("48North" or the "Company") (TSXV:NRTH), a vertically integrated cannabis company focused on the health and wellness market and the creation of innovative, authentic brands for next-generation cannabis products, today released The Next Report.
With the Canadian cannabis industry shifting into a new stage of growth, the report highlights a cross-section of cannabis trends focusing on women, travel, health and wellness, design, and food and drink.
Based on reports from WGSN and JWT Intelligence, The Next Report focuses on how cannabis will become a force to be reckoned with as it disrupts industries and creates a new economy based on personal experience.
"With The Next Report, 48North continues to drive industry innovation, creating products and experiences that will resonate with people, especially women," says 48North co-CEO Alison Gordon. "As the cannabis industry begins to mature, an increasing number of Canadian consumers will proudly invite cannabis into their lives."
On Trend: Women
Watch for the cannabis plant to shed its stigma; as a result, expect women to be increasingly proud of their cannabis use.
High-quality cannabis starts with healthy, well-maintained mother plants. The female nature of cannabis as we know it translates directly to the experience of all cannabis consumers.
To that end, 48North looks forward to bringing Colorado-based licensed brand Mother + Clone to market in Canada in 2019.
On Trend: Sun-Grown Organic Cannabis
Cannabis plants are moving back outdoors; sun-grown organic cannabis is perfect for eco-conscious and wellness-minded consumers.
The ability to manipulate an environment to achieve higher yields or more robust plant health is both an art and science.
Sun-grown cannabis is an opportunity to connect licensed producers with agricultural communities in a grassroots way and partner with Mother Nature herself.
48North's sun-grown organic cannabis will provide a significant first-mover advantage in the production of low-cost, next-generation, extract-based cannabis products.
On Trend: Out of the Closet
This is the first generation of consumers for whom cannabis is legal, so it's rare to see an ornate Victorian grinder passed down from nana, or a rolling tray worthy of our Herman Miller coffee table.
In 2019, we will see high-inspired, cutting-edge cannabis accessories we can feel proud to display. 48North recently launched F8, a line of purposeful, versatile and beautiful accessories that bring cannabis accoutrements out of hiding and into highly designed spaces.

**48North will be hosting an event on cannabis and sexuality under their storytelling platform "Latitude" on March 5, 2019. This is the second in a series of events hosted at The Drake that encourage women to share their stories and experiences with cannabis. More information at: www.explorelatitude.com
