best cannabis colorado

Colorado made history in 2012 when voters made it one of the first states to legalize adult-use marijuana. The Centennial State paved the way for the rest of the nation, and in the last decade, 23 fellow states and the District of Columbia have followed suit. Since recreational sales began in 2014, Colorado’s pot industry has raked in over $2.6 billion, bringing much-needed tax revenue to the community. But with such an iconic market, what are the best-selling cannabis brands in Colorado?

GreenState analyzed dispensary menu and sales tracking data from Hoodie Analytics spanning January to October 2023 to learn which pot companies are the favorites among Coloradans. With both multi-state brands and Colorado’s finest in the mix, these are the top players in the game by sales.
