More Canadians choosing legal stores for pot purchasing, survey finds

A new survey suggests legal cannabis storefronts are making inroads when it comes to Canada’s consumption of the drug.

The Canadian Cannabis Survey, released on Monday, shows that 41 per cent of Canadian cannabis users are typically choosing legal cannabis storefronts to purchase the product, an increase from just 24 per cent in 2019.

Meanwhile, fewer Canadians are choosing dealers and illegal storefronts, according to the results. However, the survey does note that this decrease may have been in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canadian health regulator says people growing too much pot at home

Canadian health regulator on Thursday raised concerns about the large quantity of medical marijuana people were growing at home, after its data showed a significant jump in daily average production permitted by health care practitioners.

While the practitioners can allow registered patients to grow limited amount at home for personal use, the regulator's findings show that such authorizations rose to a staggering 36.2 grams by the end of March, compared with 25.2 grams in October 2018.

Meanwhile, average purchases by registered patients, who can buy pot from licensed producers and federal medical sellers, have stayed as low as 2 to 2.1 grams every month, data showed.

Cannabis in Canada: 2020 reflections and 2021 predictions

Canada celebrated the second anniversary of cannabis legalization this past October, and with it, the growing sophistication of the industry’s producers and its consumers.

With any emerging industry comes the need for flexibility and adaptability — and this was needed even more so with the unexpected arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in March.

Industry players were required to stay lean, nimble and responsive to fluctuating economic conditions and rapidly changing demands.

We were reminded that Canada’s cannabis industry is still in the early days of legalization, and that growing pains are still very apparent. In 2020, we saw many cannabis companies continue to scale back their operations in an effort to achieve profitability.

‘It’s the first thing I do when I wake up.’ Canadians turning to cannabis to cope through COVID-19 pandemic

Arianne Persaud has been using more cannabis this year, after losing a restaurant industry job at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. To cope with the stress of being unemployed, Persaud initially turned to alcohol. But Persaud decided to cut down the drinking and consume more cannabis for relief after noticing a decline in physical and mental health. “With alcohol there’s always this extreme emotion, it’s either you’re celebrating something or drowning in your sorrows,” said the Toronto resident. “I find with cannabis, I’m able to use it in a way that’s mindful, I can be alone and meditative.” Persaud isn’t the only one using cannabis more as the pandemic continues to rage.
