June this year gave us National Doughnut Day, International Picnic Day, Father’s Day, the Summer Solstice and plenty more. But in Colorado, it presented yet something else worth celebrating — the second busiest month of cannabis sales ever, since the state legalized recreational cannabis.

Roy Bingham, BDS Analytics:
“The June numbers reflect the profound and sustained boom going on in the cannabis industry in Colorado”

“The June numbers reflect the profound and sustained boom going on in the cannabis industry in Colorado,” said BDS Analytics founder and CEO Roy Bingham. “Month after month our data reveals heightened retail sales.”

June was quite kind to Colorado cannabis in 2016, clocking $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, meanwhile, grew 8 percent to $38 million, but all of that dollar growth came from a 9-percent average selling price increase as sales of individual units in medical declined 0.5 percent.
