Connecticut’s adult-use cannabis market generated more than $5 million during its 21-day opening month in January, state officials announced.

Recreational cannabis sales totalled $5.1 million from opening day on Jan. 10 to Jan. 31, while medical marijuana sales during that same period were $8.2 million. Eight hybrid dispensaries, serving both medical and recreational customers, have been open since January with more expected to come online over the next several weeks. 

The data released by DCP on Friday does not include taxes collected at the point of sale on adult-use transactions, and medical marijuana patients do not pay taxes on their purchases.

Per the DCP, adult-use and medical marijuana sales are now recorded in BioTrack, an inventory tracking system used to monitor the movement of products in both markets.

The DCP said it will make future cannabis sales data available online on or after the 10th of each month.
