Interesting changes from the previous year… resin +50% and Vape +61%? That’s nuts!


It is interesting to watch the market fluctuate in these areas, It seems like with Colorado there may be more younger components moving into the area and vaping is their “thing” :slight_smile:

I would love to see a market evaluation on cost vs. age vs. how they imbibe
