Colorado marijuana growers produced nearly 2 million pounds of legal weed in 2020, according to an annual report just released by the state Marijuana Enforcement Division.
Last year’s harvests accounted for over 1.8 million pounds of usable marijuana, including flower sold at dispensaries as well as shake, trim and wet whole plants used for concentrate and infused product extraction. The total was about 25 percent higher than the 1.37 million pounds of usable marijuana produced in 2019, MED data shows.
Recreational marijuana production alone in 2020 outpaced 2019’s overall numbers, with recreational cultivations pumping out over 1.38 million pounds of pot. Medical growing operations also registered a higher output in 2020, jumping from 381,600 pounds in 2019 to 449,328 pounds.
