In the competitive cannabis market of Washington, Dama has shown a fluctuating performance across different categories. In the Edibles category, Dama experienced a notable absence from the top 20 brands in November 2023, which could be seen as a significant setback. However, the brand made a strong comeback in December 2023, securing the 59th rank, and further improved its position to the 52nd rank by January 2024.

This consistency is noteworthy in the highly competitive Flower market, although the brand did experience a slight decline in sales from 278,176 units in October 2023 to 245,761 units in January 2024. Despite the decrease in sales, Dama's persistent top 40 ranking indicates a stable consumer base and ongoing relevance in Washington's Flower category.
