Nevada County legal cannabis continues to experience growing pains

For the first time, the Nevada County Department of Agriculture prepared and presented a Cannabis Supplemental Report and has estimated that the legally produced commercial crop is valued at $12.4 million, roughly half the intake of the county’s traditional ag products.

The 2021 Nevada County Crop and Livestock Report valued those traditional agricultural products at $21.2 million, though the legal cannabis market numbers are tallied separately from those due to the illegality of the crop on the federal level.

“Nevada County’s unique microclimates and topography provide world-renowned growing conditions for prized cannabis genetics, especially long-season sativa strains,” the report states.
