Cannabis, Woodstock and the crowd that began it all align once more

SMITHS FALLS, ON, Aug. 15, 2019 /CNW/ – On this day in 1969, hundreds of thousands of persons descended onto Max Yasgur’s dairy farm in Catskills, NY. What started as a festival with an anticipated 50,000 attendees turned into 1 of the biggest cost-free concerts and major ten iconic moments in music history, with more than 400,000 revelers celebrating peace and music collectively for the duration of a 3-day historic occasion recognized as “Woodstock”.

Multi-generational stars have been born with performances that will reside on in cultural history. It was the starting of a new counterculture of rebellion primarily based on peace and appreciate. As the music played on for 12 hours a day, the celebration turned into the coming out celebration for yet another cultural force: cannabis.

Now, 50 years later, the crowd that began it all has turn out to be 1 of the most vital, influential and educated customer groups in the legal cannabis market—the 55+ Boomers.

As this group reflects on a half-century of cannabis culture, they are uniquely certified to share their insights and opinions on how the plant and the market have changed, enhanced and impacted our communities more than time.

“Over the previous two months, Tweed has worked with market place investigation firm, Leger, polling the Boomer generation for their opinions on cannabis pre and post-legalization in regard to education, neighborhood and the future of the customer landscape,” says Rade Kovacevic, President of Canopy Development Corporation. “This is a demographic with an extremely distinctive viewpoint that has seasoned and observed the cannabis industry’s transition from prohibition to legalization more than the previous 50 years. We’re overwhelmed by the constructive feedback, like 70% of persons surveyed—both customers and non-users—contributing constructive responses in regard to decreased stigma, enhanced neighborhood education and much better security all round.”

The investigation offers insights on the following categories:

  • Prior and existing usage
  • Rewards of legalization for men and women
  • Rewards of legalization for communities
  • The future of the cannabis landscape like new item formats slated for federal legalization in October 2019

The details and insights gained via this study have been invaluable as Tweed and Canopy Development Corporation prepare for the subsequent 50 years of legalization with new consumption procedures launching towards the finish of this year. It is encouraging to know that the original pioneers see worth, chance and constructive contributions from the market.
