Massachusetts Sold $152 Million in Marijuana Last Month

Prices hit their lowest point on record, according to state reports.

Massachusetts cannabis sales came to just under $152 million for the month of June, according to state figures.

Dispensaries in Massachusetts racked up $132.8 million in recreational cannabis sales, and another $19 million in medical sales, for a total of $151.8 million, according to the state’s Cannabis Control Commission.

Flower continues to make up the overwhelming majority of sales, with sales of cannabis buds hitting $12.5 million the week of June 26 to July 2. The second-closest product category, vape cartridges, sold only $6.3 million worth of product, followed by pre-rolled joints, which brought in $5 million that week.

June was also the top selling month of the year so far for recreational cannabis, with March in second place at $129.4 million. Medical sales, by contrast, were down slightly from the prior three months, despite having plateaued somewhat.

Massachusetts sold a total of $4.74 billion in recreational marijuana since the market launched in 2018, and another $1.08 billion in medical sales since 2019, the CCC reported.

Prices have continued to plummet in the state, the CCC found, with the average price of a gram of cannabis at just $5.82 and the average ounce at $164.97 in June, the lowest the agency has ever recorded since it began keeping industry statistics. In January, the average price per gram was $7.11, and a year ago in June 2022, it was $10.58.
