About the AndCan® Index

Launched in June 2017, the monthly AndCan Index reflects observed demand from U.S. states with legalized markets, along with estimated latent demand in states without legal markets or lacking credible sales data. Both medical and adult-use products are included.

The AndCan Index builds upon:

  • Over six years of analysis of the U.S. cannabis market by Anderson Economic Group consultants.
  • A rigorous methodology that was presented in an award-winning 2020 article in the journal Business Economics.
  • More than two decades of relevant experience with alcoholic beverages, franchised industries, and public policy.

Current benchmark: The AndCan Index is currently on the March 2019 benchmark, which reflects several methodological and data improvements over the 2017 benchmark. We expect to complete a 2021 benchmark revision in the coming months.
