Marijuana Consumers Would Rather Sleep Than Party

Many people categorize stoners as party animals, but it turns out that isn’t always true. According to a survey conducted by Consumer Research Around Cannabis, nearly half of marijuana consumers are using cannabis as a sleep aid. The survey found that out of the 1,258 marijuana users surveyed, 47.2% of them buy marijuana for sleeping purposes only.

These days, using cannabis to fall asleep is so frequent, sites such as Leafly and HelloMD list specific strains that are known to help you sleep. HelloMD also recommends using a vape pen or eating an edible if you are trying to go to sleep. This method works wonders as a sleep aid because it releases the marijuana slow and it lasts longer.

Marijuana is becoming more widely used by people with sleep problems because it allows you to feel well-rested in the morning, unlike most over-the-counter sleep aids. Another benefit of marijuana is that it doesn’t contain any addictive properties like prescription medicines such as Lunesta or Ambien.

Just because less than half of marijuana consumers use it for sleep doesn’t mean the rest of them are partying. 32.8% of the people surveyed said they used marijuana solely for creative purposes and expanding their mind. Only 28.5% of the consumers surveyed admitted to using marijuana to have a good time with friends.

47% of the group surveyed said they use marijuana to treat chronic or recurring pain, which ties it with sleep as the number one reason for marijuana consumption. Depression and anxiety follows as a close second at 45.7%.

Another misleading stereotype of stoners is that they are underemployed. “Saul Silver” played by James Franco in Pineapple Express and “The Dude” from the Big Lebowski are perfect examples of this. Studies show that in the Denver area, most cannabis users have full time jobs and live in two-income families. Half of them claim to be financially optimistic and expect to have a higher income within the next six months. 42% of Denver marijuana users have IRA’s and 401K’s, 18% have traded stocks, and 19% have over $100,000 in liquid assets. This doesn’t come as a shock considering over half of Denver’s marijuana users have an income of $50,000 or more.

So if don’t consider marijuana users as reputable people, you may want to reevaluate. The modern cannabis industry continues to prove their negative stereotype wrong by using marijuana responsibly and handling business in a professional manner. The legal cannabis industry will continue to move forward and so should the public opinion.
