2021 - A Year in Review with RCU - Responsible Cannabis Use

It’s hard to believe that the two-year anniversary of the pandemic is approaching. It has been another challenging year for a lot of industries, including cannabis, but we are still proud of how we have continued to grow and evolve as a business. A big thank you to all of you for your ongoing support. Whether you purchased Stori, took our CannEd e-learning course, participated in an online survey or contest – we thank you!

We wanted to take this opportunity to share a few highlights with you from 2021.

We conducted a survey to find out if mom’s talk to their kids about cannabis

In honour of Mother’s Day, we conducted a survey to understand the sentiment mothers have about talking to their kids about cannabis. We were especially curious if moms still felt the need to hide their cannabis products post-legalization. The survey had over 1,300 participants and of those, 57% said they still hide their cannabis at home.
