category education Gilbert also suggests that retailers should pay close attention to the experience and skill sets of their suppliers. "To paraphrase what someone once said to me, 'The ability of a marijuana or hemp producer to make a fine chocolate is probably far less than the ability of a fine chocolatier to develop an infused chocolate,'" she says. Gilbert sees ample opportunity for hemp-infused edibles. Many of the products available today are candies and sweets, she says, but consumers may also be interested in a range of savory items as well. She says she expects a range of suppliers to get on board with these types of products, or to at least explore the opportunities. "We are going to see everything from startups to very well- established, mainstream companies start to look at this," she says. "They're already looking at it. Some are going to decide, 'It's not for us.' Some are going to decide, 'There's opportunity for us here.' But you would almost be negligent or irresponsible today to not be looking at it. It might not be right for you, but you ought to be looking at it." 122 ❘ SPECIALTY FOOD MAGAZINE specialtyfood.com GLOSSARY THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a cannabis compound that is the psychoactive agent. In other words, this is what gives marijuana users a "high." Products containing THC are illegal under federal law but have been legalized in a handful of states around the country for either medicinal or recreational use, or both. Such products are only available through licensed dispensaries. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabis compound that can be derived from marijuana of from hemp oil. CDB found in edibles is derived from industrial hemp plants, cannabis plants that have been bread to contain only trace amounts of THC. Several states have specifically legalized the sale of hemp- derived CBD products. Hemp is derived from the stalks and seed of the cannabis crop. For cannabis to be considered hemp, it must have no more than 0.3 percent THC. Hemp oil also only has traces of CBD. Hemp products are widely available, especially in natural food stores.
