Flower Sales Fall, Concentrate and Edible Sales Rise in Oregon

In June, edibles and concentrates became legal to sell to recreational cannabis customers in Oregon, and during that first month the products made up nearly a quarter of the state’s cannabis sales, according to a report by BDS Analytics, outlined by Willamette Week. The analysts said the introduction of the products into the market represent a dramatic shift in recreational market trends.  

According to the analysis, the $15.4 million in flower sales represented 62 percent of the state’s cannabis sales in June — down 23 percent from May. Concentrates comprised 17.3 percent of sales and garnered $4.3 million, while edibles ($1.6 million) represented 6.4 percent of sales in the month, during which overall sales reached $24.9 million.

Prefilled concentrate cartridges made up the lion’s share of concentrate sales with $2.3 million in sales, and candies ($600,000) outsold chocolates ($500,000) and infused foods ($200,000).

“Over Washington’s two years of legal adult-use sales, flower’s share declined from 87 percent to 61 percent,” the report states. “Oregon’s flower dropped immediately to a level that Washington and Colorado took more than a year-and-a-half of steadily increasing concentrates and edibles to reach.”

During the month, pre-rolled joint sales also fell from their 10 percent market share to 7 percent.
