Legal cannabis sales in Colorado took a dip in October from months, according to new data from the state’s Department of Revenue. From September to October, recreational cannabis sales dipped 13 percent to $49.1 million and medical pot sales dropped 18 percent to $31.3 million, according to an article on the Cannabist.co.
Experts have given a couple of different takes on the lower sales during holiday season. One thought is during the dip in the cultivation in winter, many medical cannabis consumers will rely on their own legal indoor grow. Another is that cold weather reduces tourist travel during the winter months, also resulting in less cannabis consumers. Our third theory is that many of us let our medical cannabis licenses lapse at the end of the year, save up for one huge purchase in October, then fast until January.
