420 Product Breakdown

Be them a hardcore connoisseur or a casual user, 420 is a day that reminds us all that marijuana is indeed legal and we love it. It’s a chance for customers to stock up on their favorite products and a chance for retailers to introduce them to new products. Here’s a look back at 420 2017 at Caliva: 

Flower Sales Soar

Last year Flower remained supreme at Caliva on 420 capturing 63% of sales vs. the 48% it held down the whole year.  That 15% bump was led by Caliva’s in-house flower; Dream Queen and Alien OG

Pre-Rolls for the Win

The top selling products on 420 were all in the pre-roll family. These easy add-ons sold like wildfire with the Hybrid Doobie the clear choice for many customers. Caliva’s Super Session, an infused preroll, is a fan favorite at Caliva due to its higher potency and approachable price. 

What to expect in 2018 on 420: 

  • An increase in traffic so stock up on everything.
  • Pre-roll add ons all day! Train your staff to upsell a pre-roll at checkout, it makes all the difference in the day’s AOS.
  • Infused pre-rolls are a great basket add. We saw their sales increase 75% in 2018.
  • Vape sales on the rise: We’ve seen Vape sales go from 21% of total sales in 2017 to 30% in 2018. We expect that to increase more!
  • Stock up on accessories; Accessories jumped from 5.3% of all sales in Q4 of 2017 to 11.3% on 1/1/18.
