CANNABIS INDUSTRY SEES 33% INCREASE IN JOBS IN JUST ONE YEAR 

CANNABIS INDUSTRY SEES 33% INCREASE IN JOBS IN JUST ONE YEAR 

By: Dan Taylor, Trilogy Wellness Marketing Coordinator 

A new report shows that the U.S. cannabis industry is exploding with full-time jobs, averaging some 280 per day. 

A newly released, joint-investigation by Leafly and Whitney Economics, discovered that as of January 2022, there more 428,059 full-time cannabis employees nationwide. Whitney Economics is considered the country’s top cannabis employment study. 

Federal prohibition prevents the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics from counting state-legal cannabis jobs. 

That means there are more cannabis jobs than firefighters, insurance agents, and bank tellers in America. 

It marks the fifth year in a row where cannabis jobs grew more than 27% in a $25 billion dollar U.S. industry. 

Those jobs in the canna industry included not only growers and processors, but human resources, sales, marketing, public relations, and lobbyists. 

In 2017 alone, both Leafly and Whitney Economics found that full-time cannabis jobs in the U.S. were at  more than 120,000. That’s more than triple what it is today. 

If California were a country, it would be the world’s fifth largest economy. The state is leading in cannabis sales and jobs. Some 83,000 people are fully employed in California’s canna industry. The state brings in more than $5 billion in annual cannabis sales. 

The appetite for Americans to buy legal cannabis is also high when it comes to common household foods such as beer, wine, milk, and orange juice. The report found that cannabis ranked fourth among such products.

Maryland Stands Out: Cannabis Arrests Rates Dip Below National Average in Progressive Trend

Maryland Stands Out: Cannabis Arrests Rates Dip Below National Average in Progressive Trend

By: Dan Taylor, Trilogy Wellness Marketing Coordinator

ELLICOTT CITY, Md- As social justice comes to the forefront during Black History Month, a report shows that Maryland is below a nationwide trend when it comes to the disparities of cannabis arrests of African Americans. But some Maryland counties are well above the national average.

A study conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union, shows that African-Americans are 3.6 times more likely to be arrested for cannabis possession than whites. And in some cases, states and local counties are double if not triple the national average.

Maryland is among twenty-six states that are below the national average. According to the ACLU, in Maryland, African Americans are 2.1 times likely to be arrested for cannabis possession. However, some Maryland counties are trending in the exact opposite direction.

In Carroll and Frederick counties, African Americans are more than double the national average, with Black folks are seven times more likely to be arrested in Carroll and six times more likely to be arrested in Frederick for cannabis possession.

States such as Montana and Kentucky, showed African Americans were almost ten times likely to be arrested for cannabis than whites.

The ACLU discovered that more than six million cannabis related arrests between 2010-2018. Law enforcement made almost 700,000 cannabis arrests in 2018. Those arrests accounted for 43% of all drug arrests.

BOOMERS ARE BOOMING WITH EDIBLE CANNABIS

BOOMERS ARE BOOMING WITH EDIBLE CANNABIS

By: Dan Taylor
Marketing Coordinator, Trilogy Wellness

ELLICOTT CITY, MD-The Boomer generation may have led the cannabis craze in the 1960’s and 1970’s, but this time they’re returning to the plant and consuming it without ever having to light up.

According to the Sleep Foundation, some 30% of adults 60 and older deal with sleep issues. Boomers are now relying on edible cannabis or gummies, to alleviate the issue.

According to data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the number of cannabis users who are part of the ‘boomer generation’, has tripled since 2009. The number of boomers who tried cannabis for the first time in 2021 reached 35%.

A report published by The Journal of the American Medical Association in 2020, backs up that study. It revealed patients 65 and older saw a 75% increase of cannabis use between 2015-2018.

Medical professionals who recommend or prescribe the plant, say patients who ingest edibles where the ratio is 1:1, or one part THC and one part CBD, respond the best. CBD helps to ease anxiety and inflammation and THC then helps as a muscle relaxer that also elevates your mood.

One of the big issues that seniors need to take notice of when consuming cannabis for the first time, is that they’re in safe space. Doctors advise older Americans to leave a nightlight on in their bathrooms and make sure there is a clear path.

But with ingestion of edibles or tinctures comes risk of taking too much too quickly. But patients who go ‘low and slow’, have the best results. Health care professionals say as we age so too does our metabolism. That means 2.5mg of THC or perhaps 5mg of THC may be all a patient needs in an edible to get that relief.
