Data

CannabisInsights-Logo

CannabisInsights Powered by Vividata is the only Canadian database that projects how consumers view and use cannabis at the neighbourhood level. Based on the Cannabis Study by Vividata, CannabisInsights is designed to answer the key questions facing governments, retailers, distributors and producers looking to enter this rapidly emerging space. The database gives analysts, marketers and policy decision makers access to 279 variables to build detailed consumer profiles at the six-digit postal code level that will describe consumer behaviours, preferences and attitudes towards cannabis. By linking this database to PRIZM5—our proprietary segmentation system—or to our other data products, analysts can see how cannabis consumption aligns with consumer social values, media preferences and more, to inform their policy-making and marketing strategies.

Here are a few examples of how CannabisInsights can be applied:
