LOS ANGELES — GreenGrowth CPAs held a month-long survey in the summer of 2022 asking operators a series of questions regarding the impacts of inflation on their cannabis operation. And according to their findings, 1 in 4 operators reported planning to raise prices in the near or immediate future to combat rising inflation costs. Out of the respondents who participated in the survey, more than 50% believe the cannabis business environment has declined in the last 12 months.
“The cannabis business landscape is ever-changing,” said GreenGrowth Founder & CEO, Derek Davis. “And, in order to provide accurate financial data to our clients, we have to consider the economic impacts of rising inflation costs, as well as other factors that can impact the business performance of cannabis companies. Through surveying our customers and cannabis operators in general, we’re able to compile enough data to provide a detailed analysis of how cannabis operators are feeling the economic pressures of today.”
