Albuquerque, New Mexico – Ultra Health, New Mexico’s #1 Cannabis Company, achieved $1.1 million in sales for the month of September 2017, the highest single month revenue ever recorded by a New Mexico cannabis provider. It is the first time a licensed New Mexico producer has achieved greater than $1 million for a single month. There are currently 35 licensed commercial medical cannabis producers in New Mexico serving nearly 50,000 patients.
Ultra Health recently opened its eighth location serving six New Mexico counties and became the nation’s largest vertically integrated solely medical cannabis provider.
“The milestone achieved is a direct reflection of how the New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program is sustaining its upward momentum,” said Duke Rodriguez, CEO and President of Ultra Health®. “We remain committed to providing every patient in every county equal access to safe, affordable and convenient medicine. The continued growth of the industry is fully dependent on new products, patients and locations being successfully integrated.”
Patients have responded favorably to Ultra Health’s new pharmaceutical-grade, smokeless medicinal products, which include sublingual and oral tablets, vaginal and rectal suppositories, oils, topicals, pastilles and patches.
“We are dedicated to enhancing patient choice, which means giving all patients the healthy advantages of purchasing accurately dosed medications with varied delivery methods, much like you would purchase from your neighborhood pharmacy,” Rodriguez said.
As of August 31, 2017, the New Mexico Department of Health reported 46,988 medical cannabis patients enrolled in the program. Currently, thousands of patients still reside in 14 counties without a full time dispensary. New Mexico is the 5th largest state by area, which makes rural access challenging but essential for improved health.
New Mexico’s medical cannabis industry is expected to reach $90 million in revenue by the end of the current year and hit $205 million by 2020.
