What Did 2022 Mean for Cannabis, and What Should We Expect for 2023?

Originally aired: January 31, 2023 | 12:30 PM CT

Ten years after Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize recreational cannabis, where do things stand?  

2022 was a big year for cannabis. There was much to celebrate, from the addition of new legal recreational states like Missouri and Maryland to the dawn of the legal markets in NY and New Jersey. But 2022 also saw declining cannabis prices and a very challenging business environment for cannabis operators.  

In this on-demand Rootwurks webinar, you can hear two experts describe 2022 in legal cannabis and what they expect in 2023.

About this Webinar

After Election Day in November 2022, nearly half of all Americans live in states with legal recreational cannabis. Furthermore, cannabis became the country’s sixth-largest cash crop, surpassing potatoes and rice, according to Leafly’s 2022 Harvest Cultivation Report.

And in poll after poll, Americans have made it clear that cannabis is more mainstream and accepted than ever before.   

But 2022 was also a very trying year for countless cannabis operators, especially in more mature markets like Colorado and California. 

Facing price compression for wholesale cannabis, an economic downturn, historic inflation, and the complexities of running a federally illegal business, many companies have pursued layoffs or faced the difficult decision of deciding whether to close their doors for good.

In the on-demand Rootwurks webinar, “What did 2022 Mean for Cannabis, and What Should We Expect in 2023,” you can hear Brian Vicente of the cannabis law firm Vicente Sederberg LLP and Denise De Nardi, the Chief Sales Officer at Native Roots discuss their perspectives on the past year in legal cannabis and what they expect for the industry in 2023.
