It’s that time of year again, St. Patrick’s Day!
Despite being in the middle of a pandemic in 2021, Forbes reported that cannabis sales on last year’s St. Patrick’s Day had made over $89 million across the country. Though the company that produced the data — Akerna — believes that this may have been in part due to stimulus check payments at the time, it still contributed to roughly 50% higher sales than usual days.
While many traditionally use alcohol to celebrate the holiday, cannabis has grown more popular each year. To celebrate this year, Emerald has rounded up some related promotions and best-selling cannabis products.
