California’s cannabis habits are now being closely tracked by research companies, looking at everything from how much we’re spending ($681 million in a three month period), to how and what we’re consuming. Press Democrat cannabis writer Julie Johnson delves into the full report from BDS Analytics here.

Want the highlights? Here are a few fascinating numbers we’ve pulled out. Keep in mind, however, that this only tracks legal purchases at dispensaries. With an estimated 80-90 percent of California’s cannabis crop still being sold on the black market, the numbers are likely far higher.

$375 million on cannabis flowers
$170 million on concentrates
