Cannabis Consumers Do What Over The Holidays

Cannabis is apparently helping people get through prickly discussions around politics, and easing stress around anti-vaccine family members this season.

It is the holiday season and people go heavy into celebrating. Surveys into the question suggest in the weeks between Thanksgiving and the new year, alcohol consumption spikes. For some people, it’s as much as double what they drink during the rest of the year.  But what do cannabis consumer do what over the holidays??  Well, Green Wednesday should be an indicator since it is one of the largest weed days of the year….they also have a huge increase in use.

That’s why roughly 70% of cannabis users say they plan on consuming more weed and less booze over the holidays, reported CBD Oracle, a cannabis consumer research company, in a new survey. As the December holidays have traditionally been linked to increased drinking, it looks like cannabis is set to take over Christmas.

CBD Oracle asked 1,925 US adults — who’d all used cannabis at least once before — about how the holidays will impact their weed consumption.

The results were astonishing. Over 68.7% said that it will consume more over Christmas, with 47.8% saying they will use “way more” and 20.9% saying they’ll use “a little more.”

Over half of those surveyed said cannabis helps them manage the financial and social stress of the holidays while also helping with sleep and improving mood. These were the two most popular reasons.

In addition, 47.7% said they would enjoy getting high with family members over the holidays, including 77% of those with many family members who already use cannabis.

Cannabis is apparently helping people get through prickly discussions around politics, at least according to 48% of those asked, while 61.5% said that it would make them more comfortable being around anti-vaccine family members.

“The entire global market has changed since March 2020, and cannabis is no exception,” Mark Mellone, CBD Oracle’s chief research officer shared. “How people use cannabis and the reasons why have also changed post-COVID. Our mission here is to detail those changes and help people adapt better to difficult circumstances and relationships. No time is this felt more profoundly than the Holidays.”
