Cannabis Consumption Surges During Pandemic As Sleep Issues And Anxieties Mount, Says New Poll
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a nearly double-digit increase in cannabis consumption among users as well as a “massive, lasting uptick” in those turning to cannabis delivery services to deal with sleep issues and rising anxieties. These are two key findings according to a new poll conducted by California-based Ganja Goddess, an online shopping, delivery and lifestyle brand that caters to cannabis consumers statewide.
The study, which polled more than 850 people, also found that flower is the primary method of consuming cannabis and that convenience and safety were top reasons for selecting a delivery service.
Zachary Pitts, CEO of Ganja Goddess, said in a public statement that the poll’s findings show “a lasting shift in consumer behavior as the pandemic goes on and consumer behaviors evolve, which is reflected in the more than 100 percent growth year-over-year we are experiencing.” Pitts added that the majority (55 percent) of respondents consuming cannabis during the ongoing pandemic increased by 9 percent since Ganja Goddess conducted its last poll in April 2020.
