Combined Cannabis Sales in Missouri Top $123M in July

Combined medical and adult-use cannabis sales in Missouri have topped $100 million again for the sixth consecutive month, totaling $123.2 million in July.

Full story after the jump.

For the sixth consecutive month, combined medical and adult-use cannabis sales in Missouri topped $100 million, totaling $123.2 million in July, Greenway Magazine reports. Since the launch of medical cannabis sales in October 2020, cannabis sales in the state have exceeded $1.35 billion. 

Adult-use sales in July were $98.7 million while medical cannabis sales totaled $24.5 million. Combined sales in July represented a 1.57% increase over the previous month. 

This year, cannabis sales in the state are projected to exceed $1.4 billion; year-to-date adult-use sales have reached $542.70 million, while medical cannabis sales to July have totaled $209.8 million, the report says. 

Those projections, however, could be negatively impacted by a recent recall of nearly 63,000 products produced by Delta Extraction, LLC. The recall was implemented by the Missouri Division of Cannabis Regulation (DCR) on Monday because they were not tracked by METRC, the state’s seed-to-sale tracking system. DCR said in a press release that because METRC was not used, the agency could not “verify that the products came from marijuana grown in Missouri or that the product passed required testing prior to being sold at dispensaries.” DCR added that “no adverse reactions for this product have been reported” to the agency.
