Illinois Sets New Record As September Sales Near $100 MillionOctober 6, 2020
The Illinois cannabis market continues to surge to new heights nine months after recreational sales were legalized. Total cannabis sales in the state registered $99.1 million in September, up from $95 million in August. Adult-use cannabis accounted for $67.6 million of that figure, with medical sales making up the remainder.
“Consumer demand remains strong throughout the ongoing Covid-19 crisis and we expect industry growth to continue as operators ramp up capacity to increase supply, new stores open throughout the state and existing stores add adult-use sales,” Illinois-based cannabis player Green Thumb Industries noted. Green Thumb is adding its eighth adult-use retail store in Illinois this week, with its Rise Naperville outlet set to open Thursday. The company has licenses to open two more stores in the state.—Daniel MarstellerSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
