  • In terms of energy consumption per unit, roughly 1.2 kilowatt hours (kwH) of energy is required to produce 1 gram of cannabis, versus 0.2 KwH to produce 1 (12-oz.) bottle of beer.
  • At those rates, the energy required to produce 1 gram of cannabis is equal to that required for a six-pack of beer.
    In 2017, 11.6 billion six-packs of beer were sold in the U.S., versus an estimated 7.33 billion grams of cannabis.
  • In 2018, total grams of cannabis sold in the U.S. are projected to reach 7,710,286,220 (an increase of 5.2% from 2017).
