A recent poll by Ayr Wellness found that 40% of people who work and use cannabis plan to take the day off on April 20. 31% of respondents said that 4/20 is a special day, and 42% of people who use cannabis for medical reasons agreed that it is an important day.
Overall, 23% of those asked said they would smoke more cannabis on 4/20, while 71% said they wouldn’t change how much they smoke.
David Goubert, president and chief executive officer of AYR Wellness, “revealed interesting trends and insights related to cannabis consumption habits.”
73% of the people who answered the poll said they usually smoked pot between 5 and 10 p.m. Another 78% of those who answered usually used weed on their own. Eighty-eight percent of people who shared cannabis with others added to the supply. The most shared items were gummies (32%) and flower (40%).
The survey found that 43% of respondents said they are somewhat comfortable talking to people after using, and 45% said they are somewhat comfortable being in public after using. Also, 44% said they are somewhat comfortable using cannabis at social events where not everyone is using.
More than a quarter of the people who answered the survey and are thought to be experienced cannabis users (they have used it between six and twenty years) said they smoked cannabis out of homemade or improvised tools.
The study was done in February and March 2023 with 900 Americans between the ages of 21 and 74 who had bought and used marijuana in the past six months.
