Marijuana Companies Receiving Boost From Coronavirus Anxieties

Marijuana companies are benefitting from the increased anxiety that has been induced by the novel coronavirus pandemic. According to reports, Los Angeles, California residents are dealing with the increased anxiety by increasing the amount of marijuana products they are consuming.

Companies that offer delivery service have also seen an uptick in orders.

“People are in scarcity mode. The streets are emptier, but specific businesses like grocery stores and dispensaries are seeing more people than usual — and people are stocking up and purchasing in bulk,” says Steve Lilak, the head of sales for California cannabis company NUG, said, via The Hollywood Reporter. “I’ve seen regular customers buying three or four of what they normally buy just one of in L.A. dispensaries.”

You have to credit the Los Angelos for their mindset because a little bit of marijuana will definitely help you deal with coronavirus better than extra toilet paper.

The coronavirus outbreak has led to the cancellation or postponing of many large events including the NCAA Tournament, Coachella, SXSW, the Winter X Games, Stagecoach, Ultra Music Festival in Miami, and more. The NBA, NHL, and MLS have temporarily suspended their seasons.

The coronavirus mainly comes from animals and a majority of those who were infected early either worked at or frequently visited the Huanan seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, according to The Guardian. The virus is similar to Severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (Mers).

The Wuhan coronavirus is transmitted from person to person through “droplet transmission.” That means an infected person can pass the virus by sneezing or coughing on another person as well as by direct contact.

While a majority of the cases have been detected in China, it has now reached many countries around the world including the United States. It has also been confirmed in Italy, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and many other eastern countries.
