Interesting Cannabis Factoids
How much Cannabis did we grow last year? Has your grandparent been eating your edibles? And other interesting facts about cannabis in America.
44.8 million pounds of Cannabis was grown both legally and illegally in the US last year.
Whitney Economics calculated that last year Americans grew 44.8 million pounds of cannabis — enough weed to supply every 21+ adult with 7.5 ounces. That’s enough for you to enjoy about half gram a day for a full trip around the sun!
Cannabis cultivation is ramping up across the country as more states, like Maryland, become recreationally legal. There are typically three stages to the supply chain of cannabis when a state goes legal, the first is a shortage of cannabis directly following regulation, then a surplus as the state ramps up production to meet demand. Then, the third stage is entered when a healthy equilibrium between marijuana supply and demand can be achieved.
Seniors Are Going Green
While young people, ages 18 – 29, are the largest consumers of weed, SENIORS aged 65+ are the fastest-growing group of new cannabis users in the U.S. Why? A better quality of life. About half of all senior adults suffer from Arthritis, a painful chronic condition. Cannabis can be very effective for treating arthritis and many other chronic pain symptoms. Many forms of cannabis, especially topical cannabis products, can do wonders for seniors who suffer from the condition.

Females are more prone to developing a tolerance to THC
A 2014 Washington State University study of cannabis resistance in rats concluded that females are more sensitive to the pain-relief benefits of the cannabis plant and are also more inclined to develop a higher tolerance. Women are generally more sensitive to the effects of cannabis because of estrogen and progesterone; the only area where men out ranked women in this unique gender-based study was ‘having the munchies’.
