Who’s The Average Consumer of Legalized Pot?
With the Arizona Marijuana Legalization Initiative on the Nov.6 ballot, we bring you results from a study that reveals the spending habits of the typical legal marijuana user.
Who Did the Study?
Headset Inc. is a cannabis intelligence firm in Seattle. They looked at data from 40,000 legal marijuana purchases made in Washington State from Sept. 2014 – July 2016.
Who is the Typical Legal Pot Buyer?
While college kids may cheer the loudest over the legalization of pot, the study from Headset Inc. revealed that the typical recreations marijuana consumer is a 37-year-old man who forgoes pot-infused candy in favor or traditional marijuana buds. The typical user will make a purchase every 19.5 days, and will spend about $650 annually on the herb. Other findings from the study include:
- Consumers in their 20s spent an average of $27 per visit to a dispensary but made more frequent trips (once every 16 days) than older generations
- The average amount spent by someone in their 80s was $64
- The biggest spenders are members of Generation X: those in their 40s spent $823 last year while those in their 50s forked out $753
- While traditional bud is the preferred type, it is followed by pre-rolled joints, pot-infused edible products, and vapor pens
