Have you tried cannabis before? I will take a wild guess and say that if you found your way to our website, you probably have. If you haven’t, no problem, welcome, we’re happy to have you here! Please feel free to shop around and reach out to us if you have any questions at all.

Did you know that a little more than half of Americans ( 52% ) have tried marijuana ? According to a YouGov recent survey, out of the 52% who have tried it, “43% have used marijuana in the past year and among those 72% have used it this past month. Among the groups examined, adults between the ages of 45 and 64 are most likely to say they’ve tried marijuana (63%), followed by liberals (60%), Americans who live in the Western U.S. (56%), and white Americans (56%). Groups that were least likely to report having used marijuana include 18- to 29-year-olds (37%), Black Americans (44%), conservatives (45%), and Americans living in the Northeast (48%)” (YouGov).

It it worth mentioning that those who have tried cannabis before are not just from the states where recreational marijuana is legal.  Marijuana is all around us and the negative stigma around it is lessening more and more each year. Thankfully! Heres to hoping we can get to a place in the world where it is seen as a beneficial type of medicine all around.

Currently, it appears that younger Americans are more likely to use cannabis on a regular basis. Among 18- to 29-year-olds who have tried marijuana, 44% say they use it at least once a week (YouGov).When you really think about it, is ” at least once a week” even a lot? Think about all the other things we do in a day and a week. When you use/need medication do you really only use once a week? Probably not.

So what is the most common way to use cannabis these days? According to the survery, the most common way is smoking. Following right behind that is edibles, concentrates and topical body products. What is your favorite way to use cannabis? Do you find yourself using it in multiple forms for different reasons?
