WASHINGTON: After a record sales day with over $1.2M in sales on New Year’s Eve the beginning of 2015 seemed to have been off to a sluggish start for recreational cannabis sales in Washington State. That was until last week when sales growth perked up with a new record sales week with $4.2M in combined producer, processor and retailer sales between January 11th and the 17th.
Here are some other insights from the Washington State Recreational Cannabis Business Intelligence Dashboard:
- Comparing month-to-month sales for the first 19 days of the month, January combined producer, processor and retailer sales continue on a slower growth trend for a second straight month and are trending at ~3% growth for the month. In a couple weeks we will have the breakdown with more details but we expect a repeat of December with producer/processor sales declining and healthy growth for retail sales.
- Overall, sales are on a healthy growth trend for the first 27 weeks of legal, recreational cannabis sales in the state. This growth has been primarily driven by new retail store openings.
- Washington State now has 110 issued retail licenses. In a couple weeks we will have the details on how many of these stores have opened for business.
