Cannabis sales in 2021 were expected to be muted, relative to sales in 2020, but instead, transaction volume from new consumers supported unexpectedly high growth rates early this year. Their research reflects these increases are due to more consumers shopping for cannabis rather than existing customers buying more. While average basket size or they spend per transaction, has fallen roughly 0.5% in 2021, the number of transactions increased 15-20%. This is encouraging for the cannabis industry because it means visits from new customers are offsetting the inevitable pricing pressure on cannabis products. Most importantly, it means the sales spikes we saw during the pandemic sparked a sustained growth trend, rather than an anomaly of one-time consumers.
