Second Largest Month In Colorado’s Retail Cannabis History

June 2016 was the second largest month in Colorado’s retail cannabis history with $112 million in dispensary sales, a 31-percent increase over June 2015. The adult-use channel drove the growth, rising 47 percent to $74 million. Medical outlets grew 8 percent to $38 million, but all of that dollar growth came from a 9-percent average selling price increase as medical units declined 0.5 percent.

Concentrates again set the pace for growth, rising 73 percent over June 2015 across both channels to take a 24-percent share of total sales, up from 18-percent share last June. Edibles climbed 53 percent to 13-percent share, while flower sales increased 14 percent and dropped 8 points of share to 56 percent.

Year to date through June, total sales rose 35 percent compared to the same six months in 2015, to $598 million, putting Colorado’s fastest growing industry on pace to reach $1.35 billion in 2016. Adult-use dispensary sales climbed 50 percent year to date while medical outlets rose 15 percent.
