Ontario retailers sold the most cannabis, with sales rising 5% on a monthly basis and 68% year-over-year to CA$155 million.

In Alberta, Canada's second-largest most populated province, cannabis sales increased 11% over from November and 3% on an annual level. Quebec’s cannabis sales increased 14% month-over-month and 9% year-over-year.

British Columbia saw a 510% growth in cannabis sales in December, compared to the month before, and 22% from a year ago.

Hifyre IQ estimated that product categories have seen a shift towards non-flower products, counting it at a record 30% in December compared to 28.5% in November.

Moreover, the data analytics provider projects that non-flower products decreased to 29.5% due to a reduction in the edibles category.
