Colorado cannabis sales set a record yet again in July, eclipsing $200 million in a single month for the first time.
Dispensaries sold $183,106,003 in recreational marijuana and $43,268,565 in medical marijuana in July, for a combined $226,374,568 in revenue, according to data from the Colorado Department of Revenue. That’s up 13.8% from June, another record-setting month when the industry raked in nearly $199 million.
So far in 2020, consumers have purchased more than $1.2 billion worth of cannabis products and the state has collected $203 million in taxes. Colorado’s cannabis industry is poised to shatter 2019’s record of $1.75 billion in annual sales, especially since August is typically the state’s highest-grossing month. Those figures are due out in early October.
