Illinois MMJ Sales Surpass $1.2 Million in January

Medical marijuana sales in Illinois hit nearly $1.24 million in January, up around 20% from December sales, which were slightly more than $1 million, according to figures released by the state.

A little more than $1.1 million of the sales total was attributable to flower, while concentrates and edibles accounted for just $132,000. Illinois also added seven new dispensaries last month, bringing the total in the state to 28.

The state said that 2,774 unique patients were served during January. Assuming each of those patients bought flower, that would mean that the price of cannabis in the state averages a little more than $14 per gram.

The state’s wholesalers rung-up more than $946,000 in sales, according to the state figures.

There are approximately 4,000 registered medical marijuana patients in Illinois, according to the state’s medical marijuana program. But patient numbers and sales will have to grow by leaps and bounds over the next year or so if a lot of the MMJ companies in Illinois are to survive in the long run.
