Women and Boomers are right behind Gen Z when it comes to the fastest growing groups of cannabis consumers, according to a new consumer report from Eaze.

Selling more weed goes hand in hand with more customers converting to the regulated market, too. Eaze’s report revealed it underwent a growth spurt last year: The platform nearly doubled its number of new users in 2019 (up 97 percent) with a spike in first-time deliveries (up 75 percent), as well. The number of new customers suggests that Californians feel more comfortable purchasing legal weed a year into the state’s licensed sales, and an increasing number of residents don’t mind having their purchases logged and tracked, either.
The platform’s website claims that it registered a total of 600,000 users since it was founded in 2014. And what did all of these customers purchase, exactly? In 2019, both flower and vapes made up 28 percent each of all sales, though vape sales slumped in August after the CDC declared the vaping crisis a public health emergency. To make up for lost vape sales, customers turned to edibles and pre-rolled joints instead, which increased 14.5 percent and 10 percent in sales, respectively, from October to November 2019.
Granted, these figures may not translate to other weed-legal states, and the data may not represent a true random sampling of California’s cannabis customers. Regardless, the numbers indicate that Californians are warming up to legalization, and as cannabis mainstreams and normalizes, more people will likely sign up for similar delivery services or weed apps such as Eaze.
