Marijuana’s New Crop of Consumers, by the Numbers

Good morning.
Nobody said it’d be easy, exactly. But nobody anticipated it’d be quite this hard to get Californians to buy legal weed.
That’s been the dominant takeaway from the Golden State’s first year of legalized recreational marijuana sales.
My colleague Thomas Fuller reported this month on how the promised flourishing cannabis economy and corresponding tax windfall haven’t materialized.
Rather, sales fell: About $2.5 billion of legal cannabis was sold in California last year, which was half a billion dollars less than the year before, when just medical marijuana was legal, the sales tracking firm GreenEdge found.
Still, analysts predict there will be plenty of money to be made.
A report from Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics recently estimated that spending growth on legal cannabis will speed up this year, hitting almost $17 billion worldwide, and ballooning to $31.3 billion in 2022.
In its annual State of Cannabis report, the cannabis delivery platform Eaze highlighted that the market is rapidly expanding beyond young men — even if, as Peter Gigante, the company’s head of policy research, noted, one in five people surveyed admitted to buying from an unlicensed source in the last three months. “I think there’s a lot of focus on getting consumers into the legal market,” he said.
Part of that will certainly involve tailoring products especially to new consumers, who may not have been willing to try out cannabis when it wasn’t legal. So who are those new customers? Here are some of the stats from Eaze’s report, which was based on data from 450,000 buyers and about 4,000 survey respondents.
25 percent
That’s how much the number of baby boomer — or age 50 or older — consumers grew last year, making them one of the fastest growing demographics for cannabis use.
$95.04
That’s how much baby boomers spent each month, on average — the most of any age demographic. (By comparison: Generation X-ers spent $89.24, millennials spent $72.94 and members of Generation Z spent $62.35.) Millennials are still the biggest group of Eaze customers, though.
38 percent
That’s the percentage of cannabis consumers who are women. Mr. Gigante predicted that by 2022 it’d be 50-50.
Female and baby boomer cannabis consumers, the report found, are driving a surge in CBD oils and more wellness-oriented products.
In fact, the report found, here’s the share of consumers who primarily use CBD products who are baby boomer women: 21 percent.

My take...

Yes the broad spectrum of THC and CBD oil vape pens, does help pain.
I never thought so, until I fell over the NYE weekend and had severe nerve damage to my shoulder, lower arms and thumb knuckle joint. 9 on a scale of 1 to 10.
I was given a medical grade Vape pen to try. It worked miracles. And no, you do not get a pot head buzz from them. No matter how much you smoke. The THC oils are not the same as rolling up the Devils Cabbage in a joint.

But it does relieve pain, which I always thought was bullshit, but it's true.

Why can't anyone post how many drug addicted Rep/Cons there are?
They should tried for high crimes & misdemeanors against the Laws of The United Stated of America.

They really can't figure out what's going on? Regulation is choking legal supply, yet again. I sold my stuff to a delivery place black market since I only grow a little, and fuck paying that much for licensing. Black market resurgence is coming, followed by ditch weed being mass-produced by big tobacco. There are people who know how to grow craft cannabis, but not many of them can afford to the way things are structured.

Only during this honeymoon period. "Big Tobacco" will find a way to vape THC and no one need damage lungs with ash and soot.

What do you mean "find a way"? In California, 1/3 of all sales are Vape carts (THC distillate). They've been around for years. You can also Vape cannabis buds if you don't like the combustion method. Cold Start Vaping is the pro's way of consuming Cannabis. Tastes incredible. Wastes none. Gives the consumer a variety of effects as different constituents cook off at different temps. Cannabinoids are important, but the Terpenes modulate the experience. It's ALL ABOUT THE TERPENES, baby!
