Retailers Turn to Hemp Cigars as Flavored Nicotine Products Banned

Small retailers impacted by state and city bans on flavored nicotine products are turning to Hemp cigars and cigarettes to fill the gap in revenues.

Carlsbad, CA, February 23, 2023– Cartel International offers Hemp cigars as an alternative to flavored tobacco products sold by small retailers.

While many states have started banning flavored tobacco and vape products, retailers are looking at alternatives to fill their empty shelves.

Fueled by a growing concern about the use of flavored tobacco and vape products, particularly among young people, state bans on flavored products, especially fruit, candy, and mint flavors have left many retailers with empty shelves and empty cash registers.

The percentage of a retailer’s sales from tobacco products can vary widely depending on the type of store and its location. However, on average, tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, and smokeless tobacco, account for about 30% of sales at convenience stores and gas stations that sell tobacco products. In some cases, this percentage is much higher, particularly if the store is located in an area with a high demand for tobacco products.

The Trends Replacing Nicotine Products

A few trends are emerging as retailers adjust to the restrictions on flavored products.

One trend is a focus on traditional tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, and smokeless tobacco. Since these products are not flavored, they are not subject to the same restrictions as flavored products.

Some stores have expanded their offerings of nicotine replacement products, such as nicotine gum or patches, as a way to help customers transition away from tobacco products altogether.

Another trend is a focus on alternative tobacco and nicotine products that are not subject to the same restrictions as flavored tobacco and vape products. For example, some stores have begun selling nicotine pouches, which are small pouches that contain nicotine but no tobacco. These products are similar to snus, a smokeless tobacco product that is popular in Sweden. Some stores have also begun selling herbal cigarettes or smoking blends as a tobacco-free alternative to traditional cigarettes.

Hemp Cigars Gain Popularity

Hemp cigars and cigarettes are also gaining popularity and may be a retailer’s dream solution to the restrictions on smoking products.

“Retail stores are constantly seeking out new products that appeal to their customers, and Hemp cigars are a great addition to any store,” said Philip Moreb, CEO And Director of Cartel International, a Hemp cigar manufacturer based in the US.

Unlike traditional cigars and cigarettes, Hemp cigars do not contain any tobacco or nicotine, making them a great alternative for smokers looking to enjoy the experience of smoking without the risks associated with tobacco products. Hemp cigars are made with pure Hemp flowers, providing a rich and flavorful smoking experience that is both smooth and satisfying. Hemp smoking products are not made with marijuana. The defining difference between Hemp and marijuana is the psychoactive component: tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Hemp has 0.3% or less THC, meaning Hemp-derived products don’t contain enough THC to create the “high” traditionally associated with marijuana.

Hemp Cigars Legal to Sell

With the rise in popularity of Hemp products, Hemp cigars are becoming more widely available in the marketplace. They are completely legal to sell and can be a great option for stores looking to expand their product offerings in the wake of tobacco bans.

“Cartel Hemp cigar products offer a unique smoking experience that is not only legal, but also free from the risks associated with traditional tobacco products. We believe that Hemp cigars have the potential to be a real game-changer in the world of smoking alternatives.” said Moreb.

Hemp cigars come in a variety of flavors and a range of sizes and are sold individually or in packs, making them a versatile and customizable option for retail stores.

It’s important to note that the sale of Hemp products may be restricted in some states and municipalities despite the legal status with the Federal government.

Specific products available in retail stores will vary depending on the store and the location. If you are looking for a specific product, it’s important to check with your local retailers to see what is available.
