Cannabis sales will reach US$71 billion in 2030

New Frontier Data, a leading cannabis research firm, released new projections for the US cannabis market over the next decade.

“As more established markets across the country stabilize, the U.S. cannabis industry will be buoyed by new markets coming online,” Gary Allen, CEO of New Frontier Data, said as the firm released its “2023 US Cannabis Report: Market Updates & Projections” study.

The executive said the growth of the US market is so strong that even if there were to be a slowdown, current estimates keep showing a 9 percent compound annual growth rate through 2030.

“Inflation, high taxes and competing illicit markets are compounding price pressures in mature legal markets, and the potential for a recession will negatively impact cannabis consumer spending in the medium term,” Allen said.

Legal sales in the US reached US$30 billion in 2022 according to the new research.

Cannabis MSO delays financial results release

Curaleaf Holdings (CSE:CURA,OTCQX:CURLF) told investors it will not release its Q4 and full year 2022 financial results on March 28 as it was originally scheduled.

The firm blamed complexities surrounding the conversion of three years of financials from an International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) to a US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) standard.

“The Company requires additional time to complete its financial statements,” Curaleaf said in a statement.

The cannabis operator said it now expects to file its results within the month of April.
