  • In July 2020, cannabis sales in Arizona’s medical dispensaries reached $94.2 million, growing three percent from June and over 54 percent compared to the previous July

A Detailed Look at Cannabis Sales in California, Oregon, Arizona, Colorado and Nevada

Data provided by BDSA indicates that cannabis sales continued their robust expansion in 5 Western states. During July, the eleventh month after the onset of the vaping crisis and the fifth month of the pandemic impacting the market, sales across the five markets totaled $842.8 million, up 12% from June, which sequential increases of 2% in May and 14% in April. March had spiked to $666.0 million from $579.9 million in February as customers purchased cannabis ahead of store closures and concerns about limitations on access, so clearly cannabis sales are back on track. With the near-term effects of the pandemic now behind us, it’s clear that cannabis demand is surging, even in relatively mature markets, like Oregon and Colorado. Nevada continued to recover as tourism slowly returns, with sales growing 23%. California stood out with 15% sequential growth, while Colorado expanded 13%. Oregon sales climbed 6% and Arizona by 3%, but both of these states had meteoric growth from a year ago. July had one more day than June, which has the effect of adding 3% roughly.

Overall sales growth from a year ago among the five Western markets ranged from 26% in California to as high as 54% in Arizona. Nevada has been impacted by the tourist slowdown but still grew 37% from a year ago. Oregon continued its strong growth, rising 44%, while Colorado grew 35%. Concentrates represented 22-37% of sales by market, below the 26-38% share of sales last August before the vaping crisis hit.
