Marijuana sales hold breaking records in Colorado, exactly where dispensaries collected much more funds in March 2019 than in any other month considering the fact that recreational pot sales began in January 2014.
According to the state Division of Income, legal marijuana goods totaling more than $142.four million had been sold in March, with recreational pot accountable for the bulk of that. Each recreational and all round sales set records for a single month, beating out the subsequent-highest month, August 2018, by a tiny more than $1 million.
Spurred by more than $114.three million in recreational sales, dispensary revenues jumped more than 16 % from February to March, DOR information shows. Healthcare sales also saw a tiny bump, hitting slightly more than $28 million.
Dispensary sales are nonetheless on a quickly track in 2019, and will beat out the total at the finish of 2018 if the existing pace continues, jumping much more than five % year-more than-year in March. On the other hand, it appears like that record pace will be largely dependent on recreational sales, as DOR information trends show that health-related sales have flatlined more than the previous quite a few years.
