But it's not just the month of September, overall sales in 2021 are much higher than they were last year. On the website they say...

"So far in 2021, adult-use sales of $997 million have increased 131% over the same period a year ago. Sales to non-residents continue to represent an increasing percentage of overall sales, reaching 33%..."
