Love Of Cannabis Is One Thing That Millennials And Baby Boomers Both Share. But Is It For The Same Reasons?
In 2020, Verilife, a cannabis company, surveyed a thousand baby boomers between the age of 56 to 74 and a thousand millennials between the age of 24 to 39 who consume marijuana on a regular basis to see if there were any similarities or differences between why the two generations choose cannabis. One of the biggest differences among the two groups is that about 50% of millennials mentioned that they consume cannabis only for recreational purposes while 50% of boomers reported that they consumed it only for medical reasons. For those who chose medical reasons in both groups, chronic pain was one of the top causes. Some in each group used cannabis for both reasons: 29% among millennials and 22% for boomers.
Similarities were seen in many categories of the survey. For those who chose recreational cannabis use in both groups, relaxation was their top reason for consuming. Both the groups tended to spend almost the same amount of money on cannabis every month. On average, millennials said they spend about $78 per month while boomers spend $75, which is an average of $76.50 per month among both generations. Both generations listed smoking as their top choice for consuming cannabis, with edibles a close second.
One part of the survey that the two generations could not agree on was when was the best time to consume. It was surprising that more than twice as many boomers preferred to wake and bake than millennials did, even though millennials were likely to smoke more weed throughout the day.
Another key similarity in the survey was that both generations strongly believe that the cannabis plant has medicinal benefits and more than 60% of both generations said they would prefer cannabis over a prescription drug to relieve pain if given an option.
