Canada’s Searches Get Higher

On October 17th, Canada became only the second country worldwide (after Uruguay) to fully legalize marijuana for personal and medicinal use, so Mel Magazine inquired about how this may have affected Cannabis related searches.

While waiting in line at their local dispensary, lots of Canucks still found time to visit Pornhub. Traffic remained steady, but searches for Cannabis related terms were 206% higher than average. (We suspect many Canadians were also higher than average that day).

Those higher searches included terms such as “smoking weed”, “weed sex”, “horny weed”, “girls smoking weed”, “ganja girls”, and “smoking weed blowjob”. Several searches with “420” topped the charts, but perhaps Canadians will now regard “1017” as an equally important number.

Canada’s East Coast was the first to legally light up after midnight, so it seems fitting that they are historically more likely to search for cannabis related terms when compared to the rest of the country. Newfoundland & Labrador ranks first, followed by New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

When compared to the rest of the world, Canadians are 224% more likely to search for cannabis related terms, making them 4th worldwide behind Kenya, Switzerland and South Africa, but just ahead of their American neighbors to the South. Canada’s millennial’s aged 18 to 34 are 68% more likely to search for cannabis related terms when compared to their fellow Canadians over the age of 35.
