Welcome to our monthly cannabis market overview.

You may notice we're reporting on four markets in this month's Cannabis Market Overview (CMO) versus our standard 10 markets. The world is a weird place right now. We know we don't have to tell you that, but Covid-19 policy changes continue to impact legal cannabis markets in different ways. Accuracy and quality data are two things Headset will never sacrifice and we've decided to hold the projections for a handful of markets in order to ensure you have the truest info at hand. With that, we've got the latest numbers to show you - let's jump in!

Metric Definitions

  • Total sales = the total amount of sales for the month.
  • YoY sales growth = calculates the percentage change in total sales from the same month last year.
  • Basket count = is the total amount of transactions for the month.
  • Average basket = total revenue divided by the total number of transactions.
  • Brand concentration = is the % of the market that the top 10 brands make up (in terms of sales dollars). EX: in CA in Dec 2019 the top 10 brands held 32% market share.

After only recently entering the NV market in September 2019, Old Pal’s top selling product, Fire OG (Ounce), hit a new sales record with more than $1M in sales last month contributing to more than 25% of brand’s total sales. This aligns with the patterns of sales growth among larger Flower package sizes that we have reported on in our COVID-19 blog (updated daily).
