Cannabis Displays, CBD Displays, and Vape Displays- 15 Examples for More Effective Instore Merchandising

Cannabis displays, CBD displays, and vape display cases face a common set of merchandising and marketing challenges. All involve relatively new products which are derived from commodity products. All are under careful regulatory scrutiny, and all require education at the point of sale.

Cannabis has its own unique set of challenges as it is only legal for adults in 11 U.S. states and a total of 33 states for medicinal purposes. It has limited retail distribution and a well-established black market.

CBD, on the other hand, is legal nationwide, federally. Hemp-based topical CBD products have gained mass market retail distribution. However, CBD made from marijuana is still illegal in many areas, and CBD in food, drinks, capsules, ingestible oils, and other consumable forms is still illegal federally.

Vaping products have endured intense media scrutiny surrounding health concerns and under-age use. FDA regulation, along with federal and state legal restrictions, have negatively impacted vaping industry growth prospects.  

In today’s post, we’ll take a quick look at 15 examples of displays across these 3 related product categories.

  1. Bloom Farms Counter Glorifier– We designed the counter display shown below as a glorifier display. The display featured solid cedar wood construction with direct printed graphics, 1 product shelf, a digital media player, and a direct printed curved PVC back panel.

  1. Santeer CBD Display– In designing the 7-shelf gravity-fed acrylic display shown below, we focused on bringing attention to the Santeer brand but also clearly identifying the company’s different products and distinct product applications. We are generally not a fan of text-heavy graphics, but the educational requirements are so high in the CBD space that we believe consumers will actually take the time to read and learn about the products.

  1. Livive– Like the Santeer display shown above, we created the Livive countertop display shown below out of acrylic. We built a product platform with an illuminated base, logo and product deck and enclosed it in a clear acrylic case which could be accessed through a rear door.

  1. Vape Pen Display– The vape pen display shown below is also made of acrylic, but in this case, we added a solid wood base and rear backer. We created 3 vape display case tiers, with inset product placement areas and also included built-in brochure holders.

  1. 3-Tiered Bloom Farms Counter Display- Similar to our first example, we used solid cedar wood as the core material for the 3-tiered counter display shown below. We added direct printed header and shelf graphics, a digitally printed PVC back panel graphic, and a product pusher system on the middle tier.

  1. Ocean Hippie Organics– This is another example of a simple counter display, but we used solid carbonized bamboo with a clear coat finish as the main material. We like bamboo for its natural sustainability and visual appeal. We created insets to hold jars and added a removable digitally printed PVC header sign.

  1. Floracal Farms Counter– Our goal with the Floracal Farms display was to create a small footprint, cost-effective display with a high-end look to showcase the company’s line of premium cannabis flower. We cut circular jar insets into the solid wood base and added a dark stained finish and matching PVC header sign.
