Eaze, one of the most popular medical marijuana delivery services in California, has released an interesting report about users in the 80 cities it operates in.
It turns out that “waking-and-baking” is preferred by many, and that folks in Northern California are into a lot trippier kinds of marijuana than Southern Californians. These are just some of the insights that result from the aggregate use patterns of 100,000 clients of Eaze.
According to Keith McCarty, CEO of Eaze, this data is supposed to help shape the new regulation regarding medical marijuana use in California. Although California has legalized medical cannabis has two decades ago, regulations have always lacked.
Back in Oct. 2015, Gov. Jerry Brown signed the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act, aiming to create the safe growth, delivery and sale of medical cannabis across the state.
Advocates hope this draft becomes a useful template for the rules regarding the use of recreational marijuana legal for adults, a proposal that is expected to be included in the November ballot.
“It’s easy to say ‘No’ to something when you don’t know anything about it,” said McCarty on Tuesday. But hopefully, the shared data will offer people a new perspective on why and how people are using this.
Eaze is planning to release more reports on the subject, according to McCarty’s statement on Tuesday. According to this first insight, however, the San Francisco company deals mostly with young and male consumers as typical medical cannabis users.
So who exactly uses the on-demand marijuana delivery service Eaze?
Women amount only to 25 percent of Eaze’s patients. Most of its clients (48 percent) are between 18 and 25 years old, while its oldest consumer is 90. People can access the Eaze website to choose from different types of medical marijuana that they can order for delivery.
The report also revealed some interesting facts about Eaze’s userbase. For example, 57 percent of Northern Californian users prefer sativa varieties of cannabis – responsible for a “trippier, more energetic buzz.” On the other hand, indica types of herb are the Southern California users’ cup of tea, leading to a more relaxing high.
April 20 – the marijuana world’s unofficial holiday – was on a Saturday last year, and the report showed this day has become a veritable new Black Friday. Business spiked with 153 percent in between the two Mondays before and after 4/20.
Fun fact: Eaze clients were less likely to order its products on Mother’s Day; the sales dropped by 15 percent compared with the three Sundays before and after Mother’s Day.
