We will form an opinion about a product based on the design alone and usually before learning anything about the product and its benefits. This is just how humans naturally behave. (3)

Creating branded gummies, hard candy, or CBD edibles with your branding on can also be used for creative brand awareness campaigns. Reward loyal customers by sending them a delicious and branded treat when they next place an order with you. Gift branded candy to your employees or send them out to business connections to keep your business at the top of mind.
