CCB Releases Annual Demographic Study of Nevada’s Cannabis Industry


LAS VEGAS, NV – Today, the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (CCB) released its annual demographic study of Nevada’s cannabis industry.

In accordance with Nevada Cannabis Compliance Regulation 6.140, the CCB will conduct an annual survey to compile comprehensive demographic information regarding all active cannabis agent registration card holders. Additionally, this data will be reported to the Nevada State Legislature before each legislative session as required by NRS 678A.450(3).

This is the second year the CCB generated this report based on data from the agent card applications, rather than a voluntary survey.

As of December 2023, there are ~15,435 registered agent card holders.

Key takeaways include:

  • 60% of respondents identified as Male; and 39% identified as Female.
  • 52% identified as White; 19% identified as Hispanic; and 19% identified as Black.
  • 46% identified as being in the age group of 25-34 years old.

Demographic data collection and reporting will assist the CCB and the State in its efforts to prioritize diversity and inclusion in the legal cannabis industry.

This is the third year the CCB has collected and reported demographic data. The CCB’s past demographic studies along with other industry statistics can be viewed here:

Data may be analyzed year-over-year to identify trends within Nevada’s cannabis industry.
