Cannabis Consumption Surges During Pandemic, Delivery Services are the new Norm 

 

 

 

If you’re sitting on the couch with a bong in one hand and the TV remote in the other, you’re not alone.  

 

According to a new poll conducted by California-based Ganja Goddess, an online shopping, delivery and lifestyle brand that caters to cannabis consumers statewide, since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, that the majority (55 percent) of respondents consuming cannabis during the ongoing pandemic increased by 9 percent. 

 

The study, which polled more than 850 people, also revealed a “massive, lasting uptick” in those turning to cannabis delivery services to deal with sleep issues and rising anxieties.  

 

Zachary Pitts, CEO of Ganja Goddess, said in a public statement that the poll’s findings show “a lasting shift in consumer behavior as the pandemic goes on and consumer behaviors evolve. He added that flower is the primary method of consuming cannabis and that convenience and safety are top reasons for selecting a delivery service.  

 

When asked if they used cannabis to help manage any conditions, a majority (78 percent) of respondents said yes, with 69 percent citing sleep, 68 percent stating anxiety and 32 percent invoking chronic and acute conditions as conditions that cannabis is helping them manage. 

 

Although 56 percent of respondents said flower was their primary method of consumption during the pandemic, 51 percent cited edibles, 36 percent preferred vape pens, 14 percent said tinctures and 13 percent said pills/capsules.
