Between January 31 and February 1, 2022, Yougov carried out a survey of 1,038 French people aged 18 and over whose subject was CBD. Many shortcomings remain perceptible on the question. Similarly, the ban is not unanimous. Decryption.
France, European champion in cannabis consumption
The hexagon sits on the first place of the podium of the European countries which consume the most cannabis. However, the government has decided to put a veto on the sale of CBD flowers and leaves. A decision invalidated by the Council of State on January 24th.
While taking to the streets, Yougov went to meet the French to talk about theCBD universe. 78% have already heard of it, but only 47% would be able to correctly explain what it is.
Few adults have tested CBD in France
Few adults say they have tried CBD since only 16% of respondents admitted to having tasted it. Moreover, the flowers or leaves are most commonly used in the form of infusion and herbal tea up to 32%. The same percentage of respondents admitted to consuming CBD in the form of cigarettes and/or oil. Vaping comes next with 18%. 16% of gummies (candy or chewing gum) are consumed. Cosmetics brings up the rear with only 9% and capsules with 8%.
20% of consumers admit to having tried CBD to find an alternative to cannabis. This percentage was enough for the government to attempt its marketing ban. This announcement has divided the French since among 18-34 year olds, 40% are for the ban and 39% are against and for the 35-54 age group, 40% are against sales restrictions, against 35 % for. Beyond that, 36% are for and 36% against. Even within politics, leftists are more fiercely opposed to the CBD than other parties.
