US (MD): Dispensaries sold $90M worth of cannabis in October

Overall sales of legal cannabis fell slightly in Maryland in October compared to the prior month, but sales of adult-use products—which kicked off in July—were stronger than ever.

All told, licensed retailers in the state sold nearly $90 million in combined medical and retail cannabis products during October. A little more than a third of that ($35 million, or 39 percent) came from medical cannabis sales, while sales of recreational products totaled $55 million.

Sales of adult-use products have set records every single month since the recreational cannabis market opened in July. Meanwhile, October’s monthly medical cannabis sales were the lowest of the year. October’s total medical and adult-use sales numbers were posted this week by the Maryland Cannabis Administration (MCA).

The agency also released October sales figures by product category. Cannabis flower was by far the most popular form factor, with nearly $55 million of cured bud sold. That was followed by concentrate sales ($24 million), infused edibles ($6 million), and non-edibles ($5 million), as well as just under $500,000 in shake or trim. Plant sales, meanwhile, totaled about $25,000.
