Debunking Some of the Most Common Misconceptions About Cannabis

Not even a decade ago, the idea of legalizing cannabis was still a social taboo and a topic that was mostly avoided by mainstream media outlets, politicians, and celebrities.

Women Are the Biggest Buyers of Cannabis Drinks

The cannabis industry has seen some players make big bets on beverages, but so far it hasn’t paid off. The market is definitely growing, just not at the rate many had hoped for. Plus, the slow growth of this form factor is not an indication that it won’t continue to increase and eventually gain even more market share. Cannabis tracking firm  Headset recently released a report on the cannabis beverage industry and found that in the US, “The beverage category’s market share has held fairly steady between 0.85 percent and 1.1 percent over the last several years. In fact, market share to the category was slowly decreasing through late 2019 and early 2020 before maintaining just below 0.9% during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Legal Canadian market expected to peak by 2026: report

Canada doesn't have a lot of time until its cannabis market hits its ceiling. 
 
Brightfield Group expects Canada's cannabis market will peak around 2026 to the tune of about $9 billion in annual sales, a time by which the cannabis consultancy sees enough retail stores open to handle demand while enough consumers have successfully transitioned to the legal market, according to a new report. 
 
"The massive growth that we've seen this year and the next probably year or two is going to taper off because ultimately, there's only so many new users that are coming online over the longer term," said Jamie Schau, insights lead at Brightfield Group and the lead author of the report, in a phone interview.

Weed-related ER visits up for young adults despite overall visits being flat pre- and post-legalization

A Canadian study comparing emergency department (ED) visits in Hamilton, Ont. pre- and post cannabis legalization saw a spike in visits for acute cannabis intoxication among those aged 18 to 29, but not overall.

The finding is based on a retrospective chart review at an academic ED in which investigators assessed all visits having a cannabis-related discharge code from six months before legalization in October 2018 to six months after. The study was published last month in BMC Emergency Medicine.
