In fact, female Canadian consumers contributed to 36.7% of cannabis spending in Q4 2021– 4.1% higher than in the U.S. Consumption among males has also grown, albeit at a smaller percentage, while the female market share has increased notably over the past two years.

Week in Weed: Herbs that won’t get you high, OCS unveils 240+ new pot products and Amazon supports legalization of weed in the U.S.

Tansley says adding herbs, such as lemon balm, peppermint, and lavender, to cannabis is like mixing “soda with your whiskey.” They can boost flavour profiles, stretch out the stash, and water down the potency to a preferred level.
