Survey: 78% of Cannabis Users Says Drug Boosts Mental Health

Majority of cannabis consumers say usage will only increase or remain the same.




A large number of cannabis users (78%) report that consuming the plant has “positive impacts on their mental health” according to the latest Cannabis Consumer Report by Drive Research, a national market research company.

Data collected from 3,926 cannabis consumers across the U.S. also showed that most users ”believe cannabis positively impacts their overall happiness (79%), and makes them more social (63%)”, the report said.

A majority of cannabis consumers surveyed (78%) said that their “usage will only increase or remain the same in the next twelve months.”

“Due to these perceived benefits of cannabis, it has become a part of many daily routines with nearly 1 in 2 cannabis users reporting they consume it every day (48%),” says Syracuse, NY based Drive Research. In fact, the survey found cannabis to be so important, some 56% of cannabis using workers would quit a job (or not apply at all) if their employer started requiring regular drug testing for cannabis.
