BC spent $23.6 million on legal cannabis last month

It’s no secret that British Columbians enjoy cannabis, but now there are some numbers to back it up.

Statistics Canada has released the breakdown of each province’s monthly cannabis spending, and BC has been showing some serious love to its cannabis retail industry.

According to StatsCan, $23.645 million in cannabis was sold in the province by retailers. A very slight decrease from the $23.699 million it sold in April. This dip of just over $50,000 is only the second time there has been a drop in monthly total dollar sales since cannabis was legalized in October 2018.

This is a remarkable increase over the same time last year, when BC only pulled in $4.155 million in cannabis revenue in June 2019.

Study Finds Higher THC Does Not Translate To Increased ‘High’

The cannabis plant is composed of dozens of cannabinoids, with some being more popular among consumers and patients than others.

Historically, the most popular and well-known cannabinoid was tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The cannabinoid was first isolated by an Israeli scientist, Raphael Mechoulam, several decades ago.

In recent years another cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), has risen in popularity among consumers and patients. Google search query data shows that CBD was searched more often than THC in recent.

With that being said, many consumers and medical cannabis patients still base their purchasing decisions on THC alone, which is unfortunate.

Canada Marijuana Sales Slump in April After Coronavirus Stockpiling

Canadians seem to be easing off marijuana a bit, at least as far as the latest sales figures reveal. On Friday, Statistics Canada released its national retail sales data for April, revealing that purchases from licensed marijuana stores fell slightly (by 1%) on a month-over-month basis to land at around 180 million Canadian dollars ($132 million).

That reversed the previous month's trend, in which sales rose by nearly 20%. This can largely be attributed to stockpiling behavior stemming from the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus outbreak that necessitated "stay in place" measures.
