A survey digging into America’s cannabis habits amid legalization efforts has answered one burning question: do people want to light up with their grandparents?

It turns out, 60 percent of weed smokers south of the border would.

Private edibles company Azuca surveyed Americans’ cannabis use habits by asking people who use pot “important questions as federal legalization nears, while also uncovering which form of cannabis consumers are looking for.”

“Overall, 58 percent of Americans believe cannabis is the future of pain management,” the survey continues.

Most (64 percent) of cannabis users said they consume it for relaxation, while 43 percent use it as a sleep aid and 40 percent for pain management. Weed use is recreational for 39 percent of respondents, and 37 percent said they use it for health and wellness.

Even if regulated stores were more expensive than illicit sources, 60 percent said they would still buy from legal pot shops.

The edibles company found that of the cannabis consumers surveyed, more than half (52 percent) reached for a weed gummy over smoking (39 percent) and vaping weed (22 percent). Thirty per cent preferred chocolate over another type of edible and 17 percent liked beverages more.

Throughout the pandemic, 53 percent said they have upped their intake of edibles. Fifty-four percent wanted the effect of edibles to kick in faster and 62 percent preferred their edibles with little or no cannabis taste.

The survey confirmed that edibles are the future of the cannabis industry, according to president and CEO Kim Sanchez Rael.

“The survey also reveals there is still a need to educate Americans about cannabis. While consumer demand is growing exponentially, now is the time to bring sophisticated and approachable products to market that people can trust.”

In Canada, a recent survey came to the opposite conclusion, finding that Canadians’ appetite for cannabis consumables was dwindling.
