SEATTLE – April 24, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Lemonhaze.com, the leading real-time provider of cannabis data, released live market data for April 20, 2017, the de facto “black Friday of the cannabis market.” “April 20th is the fourth biggest sales day of the year for Washington marijuana retailers behind only New Year’s Eve, Christmas Eve, and the day before Thanksgiving,” remarked Brian Yauger, president of lemonhaze.com.
For April 20, 2017, lemonhaze.com calculated a 79 percent jump in daily sales revenue, compared to the average daily sales for the first 19 days of April. Lemonhaze also calculated a 73 percent jump in daily sales compared to the average Thursday in 2017. “420 was a monster success this year. We had all hands on deck and still barely kept up with it. It’s the best holiday of the year,” according to Alden Linn, owner of World of Weed retail shop in Tacoma.
Recreational marijuana is one of the fastest-growing industries in the county. Currently Washington State has 365 active retailers compared to 251 this time last year. In the last year, there has been a 45 percent increase in the number of cannabis retail stores in Washington, and a 61 percent increase in sales between April 20, 2016 and April 20, 2017.
According to retail owner Ian Eisenberg of Uncle Ike’s, Washington’s second largest retailer in 2016, “420 was bonkers! Two years ago, it was primarily pot heads celebrating 420. This year it was moms, dads, grannies and everyone else excited about getting high! God bless America!”
