Marijuana Sales Reports

The Marijuana Sales Reports reflect sales made during a filing period (typically a month). Here is an example sales reporting timeline: sales made in January are filed with CDOR in February and reported on this page in March. Reports on this page are labeled with the filing month (January, in this example).

For more information, please see the Marijuana Taxes | File page.

The Marijuana Sales Reports on this page are not the same as the  Marijuana Tax Data Reports.  The Marijuana Tax Data reports show tax revenue collected monthly as posted in the State's accounting system, while the Marijuana Sales Reports show unaudited monthly sales as self-reported by businesses on State sales returns.
