July Cannabis Sales Surge in 5 Western States

  • In July 2020, cannabis sales for state licensed retailers and delivery services reached $334.4 million, growing 15 percent from the trailing month and 26 percent compared to July 2019.
  • Year to date, sales in California have reached $1.9 billion, a 14 percent increase compared to the same period in 2019.
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.

Here is a closer look at each market, as detailed by BDSA:

Hollister Biosciences (HOLL:CSE). is a multi-state operator with multiple, high-quality products that are now carried in 230 of California’s 600 dispensaries, where it also claims California’s #1 hash infused pre-roll “HashBone” + another 80 Arizona dispensaries with some of the best concentrate in the State.  

But given the state of disappointment in the Cannabis industry over the last 15 months, none of that would mean anything without actual results shareholders and the industry could celebrate.  In that regard, Hollister does not disappoint with Q2 numbers coming in as follows:

  • RECORD REVENUE of $US 8.47M, compared to $200,000 last year and representing an increase of 4,170%
  • NET INCOME of $300,000, compared to a loss of $2.1M, representing a turnaround of $2.4M over last year 

There isn’t a small cap cannabis company that would not cheer for these results – if that was all they had.  These numbers are a company maker.   But Hollister is set to continue growing on several fronts, including a Direct To Consumer model and further big expansion in California.
