American Marijuana, the company that caused a stir when it advertised a job for someone to paid to smoke weed, conducted a survey exploring people’s travel experiences in search of adult-use cannabis. They asked more than 1,000 people who had traveled to other states to buy legal recreational marijuana about their destination and what they purchased.
There was a lot of interesting feedback on the survey. The survey revealed that 36.5% of the people traveled by plane, while 57.3% traveled via automobile to buy legal marijuana in other states. It is surprising to see that quite a significant number of people went via air despite the heightened security at airports and federal law restricting the movement of weed across state lines.
Most of the states visited by the consumers did not come as a shock because they are some of the states where consumers enjoy low marijuana prices. These states include Colorado, California, Massachusetts, Washington, and Nevada. Oregon did not make it into the top list despite having low prices on marijuana products. Massachusetts is the only state in the east to make it into the list; thus, the level of traffic is most probably going to increase from other states in the coming months and years.
Fifty-two percent of the respondents said that they traveled to Colorado to buy legal weed, while thirty-three percent traveled to California. Since recreational marijuana has been legal in Colorado longer than other states, the state has a competitive edge over other states because its recreational marijuana market has matured, thus low prices overall.
Another surprising finding is that about thirty percent of the respondents who went to other states to buy legal have access to legal adult-use weed within their states. This shows that there are things that are yet to be fulfilled in many of the existing recreational states.
When people were asked what products they buy most, edibles were on top of the list. And some consumers prefer to purchase and evade the long process of making your edibles.
Flower was the second, followed by pre-rolled joints and CBD oils on the list of products bought by the respondents.
While analyzing the survey, it was noticed that a lot of the consumers spent a significant amount of money buying legal weed in other states. If the consumers had legal marijuana shops nearby, time would have been saved and allocated to more appropriate tasks.
Industry analysts believe that the findings of this survey will give marijuana-related companies, such as HTC Extraction Systems (TSX.V: HTC) (OTCQB: HTPRF) and MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC), plenty to think about regarding how best to serve their target customers.
