This Data Sheds a Revealing Light on Today’s Cannabis Consumers

Oasis Intelligence polled 20,000 Americans in 50 states to prove cannabis fans ‘aren’t what they’ve been painted to be

There’s no single description for cannabis consumers, but as a composite, they’re 30-something college graduates working full-time jobs. They’re committed to social justice and legal reform, they’re hungry for information, and they use cannabis primarily as a wellness tool.

It’s been deemed an essential business during the Covid-19 crisis, and it has the opportunity to transform our economy. And legalization will continue to be a major issue, especially in an election year.”

The study, published Tuesday, was conducted in late 2019, before the public health crisis and the subsequent lockdown spurred a new green rush this spring. [Read More @ ADWEEK]
