Oasis Intelligence finds a spike in Mamas sparking up

10% of Americans have turned to cannabis to care for themselves during the shelter-in-place order. Though everyone has experienced some change, researchers have recorded a fascinating impact on mothers. 


A national survey representing the U.S. population* found a higher percentage of parents consumed cannabis in the last month compared to non-parents, with moms reaching for cannabis at nearly double the rate of other groups. Reported in previous studies** to make parents feel more ‘hopeful,’ cannabis is most commonly used for anxiety + stress relief (40%), sleep issue treatment (30%), and depression relief (28%). 


Data analyzed by Oasis Intelligence shows cannabis use has been self-reported for coping + care by: 

  • 14% of  parents with kids at home, compared to 8% of those without kids at home
  • 16% of moms, compared to 11% of fathers
  • 7% of men without children, the lowest usage rate of all groups

Co-founded by expert analyst Laura Albers, Oasis Intelligence provides human-centered insights for the diverse global cannabis + hemp market. The recent data shows a distinct change from pre-existing trends, when usage was typically higher among men than women. 

Now, as mothers stretch to fill the roles of caregiver, in-house educator, and remote/essential workers, cannabis consumption is rising. In a time of unprecedented global uncertainty, we’re watching closely as the country carefully turns to cannabis.  

“Women are generally on the receiving end of more usage-shaming than men, and what we are seeing today is women, and more specifically moms, engaging in more self-care with cannabis during this quarantine time."
