Revenue projections for the recreational and medical marijuana markets keep rising, each one larger than the previous studies. According to a recent report by ArcView Market Research and BDS Analytics, the global licensed dispensary sales of cannabis will reach $40.6 billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of 24.5%. The US will account for about $30 billion or 73% of the global cannabis dispensing market in 2024. It is also projected that by 2024 the retail dispensing sales of legal recreational cannabis will reach $26.7 billion whereas the revenue generated from the sales of medical cannabis will reach $13.9 billion… but the most, according to an article in High There says that the delivery sub-market will be the highest , fastest growing stream in the market. They said: “The cannabis industry continues to skyrocket as it’s legalized across the country and other parts of the world. As the industry surges forward, new laws help change how cannabis businesses provide for their customers. Cannabis delivery, for example, is heating up across California for the canna-businesses that took the next big step early and got a delivery license… After California legalized statewide cannabis delivery, it removed the previous regulations that prevented the legal access to cannabis delivery across the state.” Active Cannabis companies in the markets this week include NxGen Brands Inc. (OTCPK: NXGB), Sundial Growers Inc. (NASDAQ: SNDL), HEXO Corp (NYSE: HEXO) (TSX: HEXO), Canopy Growth Corporation (NASDAQ: CGC) (TSX: WEED), KushCo Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: KSHB).
The High There article continued: “States that have already legalized cannabis, like California, are seeing a spike in business thanks to the overwhelming convenience of cannabis delivery… being the next wave in cannabis commerce. What many are considering the next trend for cannabis business, delivery services can help surge revenue for the retailers that jump in to take advantage. The cannabis industry is already a recording (all-time highs) and (continues) climbing… A particularly explosive section of this industry is almost exclusively the new cannabis delivery sector. In fact, (in 2016), according to industry reports , 44% of medical marijuana users across the U.S. regularly used a cannabis delivery service to buy their bud. With legalization only having ramped up since then, it’s likely the numbers have only continued to increase, making the market ripe for cannabis delivery.”

Nick Kovacevich, KushCo’s Co-founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Fiscal Q1 2021 built on the strong momentum we achieved in the previous quarter with modest revenue growth and positive adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter in a row. We were expecting more significant growth during the quarter, but like many other importers of goods, we were faced with temporary, yet unexpected and uncontrollable, shipping delays due to record-breaking shipments to U.S. ports around the holiday season, which were exacerbated by new COVID-19 restrictions. As a result, some of the revenue that we were expecting to realize in Q1 was pushed into Q2, especially in the month of December where we had one of our strongest months in company history with $14.7 million in revenue.
