Cannabis concentrates sales grew 40% last year, signaling a continuance in the industry’s growth in the United States. As the concentrate market continues to expand, and mature in the U.S., the usage of these plant extracts is expected to be the next phase of adoption by consumers. Sales of marijuana concentrates such as crystalline, wax and shatter, was nearly $800 million in 2020. Globally it is estimated that sales are $1.8 billion annually.
