Consumer Insights

Successful businesses start and end with Consumers.

BDSA\'s Consumer Insights work is comprehensive, projectable, immediately actionable, customizable, and trending. Know the Cannabis Consumer (and non-consumer) of today and tomorrow across local, national, and international markets and find out which consumer segments should matter to you and why. Our objective is to understand and track consumers today and the progression of consumers as markets mature and more states move to legalization.

At the highest level, we segment the population into three important groups, tracking who they are now and how they evolve over time: Consumers, Acceptors and Rejectors™.

Powered by GreenEdge®, BDS Analytics' Consumer Insights Research is available in interactive dashboards, drillable to specific geographies and consumer segments.
