Adult-use cannabis sales in Maine set a new record in June reaching $6,470,936, besting the previous record of $5.3 million set in May, according to Office of Marijuana Policy (OMP) figures outlined by WMTW. Since sales commenced in the state last October, OMP has reported more than $29 million in adult-use purchases.
Flower sales account for more than half of the $6.4 million of the record-setting sales, comprising $3,830,664, according to OMP data. Concentrates accounted for $1,453,364 of adult-use sales last month, with infused product sales—including edibles, drinks, and topicals—reaching $1,186,935. It is the first time the infused product category has surpassed $1 million in a month of sales.
The state has set successive monthly sales records since the launch of adult-use sales in October 2020—almost four years after the reforms were approved by voters. No municipality in Maine has completely opted out of the adult-use market, with some allowing only retail sales, cultivation, manufacturing, testing, or a combination.
From January through November last year, medical cannabis sales in Maine surpassed $221.8 million making it the state’s most lucrative crop; outpacing potatoes, milk, hay, and wild blueberries.
Maine has taken in about $2.9 million in sales taxes from adult-use sales since they commenced. There are currently 42 active licenses for dispensaries.
