This latest report in the Eaze Insights series reveals that the cannabis customer base is growing and diversifying, demonstrating a rise in popularity across all adult groups, regardless of gender or age. Consumers are also turning to cannabis to curb unhealthy habits. A majority of participants surveyed stated cannabis as a reason for reducing their alcohol and tobacco consumption, and cannabis reduced or eliminated participants’ need for over-the-counter and prescription pain medication.

Key findings from the report include:

“The 2018 State of Cannabis report shows continued acceptance and de-stigmatization of cannabis across legal age groups - along with continued enthusiasm for new products,” said Jim Patterson, CEO of Eaze. “Promoting wellness is a top priority for our company, so we’re excited to see how consumers are using cannabis as a part of their daily routines.”

Other insights from the report include different ways consumers are choosing to consume cannabis, an increase in first-time buyers, the most popular holidays to buy cannabis, and a comparison of buying patterns between consumers in Northern and Southern California.
