Adults use Cannabis More for Wellness than Intoxication

Nine of 10 regular cannabis consumers use marijuana as part of their wellness program, according to a new study by New York-based market research firm Miner & Co. Studio. Of the 800 regular cannabis users surveyed, 93 percent consume marijuana at least once a week, and 95 percent prefer a euphoric effect that allows them to be ‘present’, ‘mindful’ and ‘focused’ rather than ‘stoned’ or ‘out of it.’

Miner & Co.’s study surveyed regular cannabis consumers between the ages of 25 to 39 who live in states where recreational marijuana is legal, including California, Colorado and Washington State.

Eighty-four percent of the participants responded that they are employed full-time, with 65 percent having a household income of $75,000. Sixty-three percent are married or living with a significant other, and 42 percent responded that they have at least one child under the age of 18.

The survey’s findings are in clear opposition to the common misconception that young marijuana users are lazy and unmotivated. Only 1 in 10 of survey participants said they used marijuana to feel stoned.

With voters in California, Nevada, Maine and Massachusetts approving recreational marijuana measures this November, adult use marijuana is now legal in eight U.S. states. A study published in The Lancet Psychiatry found that the number of American adults consuming marijuana jumped up ten million between 2002 and 2014, and the percentage of those who fear health risks from using marijuana is at an all-time low.

The survey also found that 82 percent of the respondents prefer cannabis to other substances like alcohol and over-the-counter or prescription drugs.
