The number of certified patients registered in the state also ticked downward.
Maryland retail cannabis sales topped $90 million for medical and recreational marijuana goods, combined, in September, according to state figures.
Total sales of $90.5 million fell slightly from the $91.7 million reported in August. The decline in overall sales is due to a 6% drop in sales of medical marijuana, even while adult-use product sales increased 2%.
According to a breakdown from the Maryland Cannabis Administration, between Sept. 1 and 30, marijuana retailers sold:
$54.6 million in flower
$24.5 million in concentrates
$6.2 million in edibles
$4.9 million in infused nonedible goods
$567,414 in shake
$12,617 in marijuana plants
The number of certified patients registered in the state also ticked downward, a common trend after adult-use sales become legal. As of Oct. 1, the Maryland Cannabis Administration reported 151,009 certified patients, down from a peak of 163,935 on June 1.
