July 4th celebrations involve pairings of friends, food and festivities. Independence Day and cannabis go hand-in-hand with the top occasions for cannabis consumption being “daytime fun” and well as “celebrating special events.”
4th of July, 2021 is expected to bring in over $206,000,000 in legal cannabis sales across the United States. Last year’s 4th of July report anticipated an 87% increase in sales over the 4th of July weekend, with Americans expected to spend more on cannabis than bbq meats.
Historically, consumers spend more than $371 million on chicken during the two weeks leading up to July 4th, equalling about $37 million per day. Akerna predicted cannabis sales to reach over $260 million in just three days, generating about $86 million per day.
With the holiday falling on a Sunday this year, dispensaries should be evaluating staffing and preparing inventory ahead of the weekend to ensure they are ready to accommodate these increases in both traffic and sales.
