Statistics Canada recently released retail sales data for December 2021, showing nationwide legal cannabis sales once again grew during the holiday month. Sales in December grew to C$382.4M. The month-on-month increase of C$31M or 8.5% led to the highest monthly sales since legalization.

This latest report also gives us a complete view of 2021 sales, which totaled C$3.92B. This was a C$1.3B or 50% increase year-on-year.

Cannabis Benchmarks expects 2022 will exceed last year’s sales as more stores are rolled out across key provinces, and lower price points and product variety continue to attract illicit market consumers to the legal markets. Based on the latest report, the annual sales run rate for 2022 is expected to hit at least C$4.5B.
