Who Is The Typical Cannabis Consumer?
Cannabis users are one of the most stereotyped consumer demographics in the country. The archetype is familiar: the typical young, male, couch-locked stoner. With legalization spreading, though, is this actually typical of cannabis buyers today? Obviously hardcore enthusiasts are still a large and appealing set of consumers, and in the early days of any state's legal, adult-use program this will be the largest base. However, the 2015 Marijuana Business Daily Factbook indicated that 30% of all legal cannabis consumers had never purchased on the black market. Additionally we're seeing across the country many people who are purchasing cannabis - first time buyers or not - do not fit the stereotype. Cannabis has been normalizing for a long time, and the modern face of cannabis is incredibly multifaceted.
