There are some real differences in the way that men and women chose to get high on cannabis, according to Statistics Canada’s National Cannabis Survey (second quarter 2018).
In the survey, Women reported higher rates of consuming edibles, while men had higher percentages of using the dried flower.
41% of females reported using edibles compared to 26% of males, while 90% of males reported using dried flower versus 81% of females.
Overall, dried flower was the most popular consumption method at 86%, followed by edibles (32%), hash and kief (20%), liquid concentrates (20%), and vape pens (19%).
Rates of cannabis use were higher for men at 19%, compared to 12% for females.
The report also indicates that cannabis use tends to decrease with age. Youth ages 15-24 consumed cannabis nearly two-and-a-half times more than people over 25, with rates of 33% and 13% respectively.
