As a species, we’re not bred to feel safe in isolation. Cannabis relaxes the mind. It’s little wonder that bud is staking its claim as an anxiety-management panacea in these days of quarantine.

- San Franciscans are using more weed—gummies in particular—to “keep their head right,” according to Johnny Delaplane, president of the San Francisco Cannabis Retailers Alliance. Delaplane says his stores have seen larger-than-usual sales of THC edibles and other non-inhaled products, such as tinctures and capsules. Cannabis patches have reportedly become a top-five seller.
- Along with those consuming on the sly, people living in government housing, who are prohibited from smoking cannabis in their homes, are likely contributing to a transition from smokeable weed.
- Long-haul “value product” has been in demand, according to Delaplane.
