Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board First Year Canopy Survey with Surprising Results

Surprising, at least to us, almost 1/3 of the licensees had no canopy, meaning no square footage in live plant production.

Another surprise, the survey team consistently observed less active canopy than what was licensed.

The reason?

Washington State licensees said:

  1. It is expensive to develop canopy space,

  2. Market prices for cannabis have been consistently declining,

  3. Access to capital investment is problematic, and

  4. The traceability transition has been difficult.
