Thanksgiving ranks among one of the top five cannabis sales days of the year, but the day before, otherwise known as Green Wednesday ranks even higher on the charts.
How big a deal is it? Green Wednesday was the single biggest cannabis sales day of 2020, with an 80 percent increase in daily sales, beating out Black Friday for the first time in four years. Cannabis consumers spent approximately $238 million during the 2020 Thanksgiving weekend with flower making up over 46 percent of the sales, followed by vape pens (30 percent), and concentrates (13 percent).
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, not only can we anticipate slipping into our stretchy pants for a feast, we can also plan for a trip to the dispensary to ‘stock up’ for winter—or prep for the stressful holidays with calming CBD products. No matter what your heart desires, there are plenty of ways to take advantage of holiday savings. We’ve curated a list of discounted gift ideas or specials starting this week, until the end of the month.
