Las Vegas hosted the 10th annual tobacco pipe expo once again this year. TPE has for the last few years brought into its fold to include more and more at one time counterculture products. The first of these was vape and e-cigarettes. The transformation of the products has been most interesting from cheap Chinese knockoffs that at best seem a bit suspect in their claims. Now many of these same companies are turning out sleek modern products with huge footprint at the show from a table and a few reps to huge custom build displays. Those products are now in the mainstream and have taken over the expo. Now the next wave of new products is being showcased and dwarfing what vaping and eSig’s did. Cannabinol ( CBD) was everywhere in multiple forms Edibles, Inhalants, Lozenges, Mints.
