Dried Cannabis Price Scan, Feb 22, 2017

Cannabinoid content and the price of medical cannabis in Canada vary with licensed producer, location of production, and production method. We track cannabinoid content and pricing data for all available dried cannabis flowers and milled blends to understand how these prices change over time, and to highlight offerings with the best value.

The data for this summary was taken February 22nd 2017 (Delta 9 figures February 21 current). Publicly available information on producer websites and newsletters was logged for all available dried cannabis flower and blends in the ACMPR. THC and CBD content and non-compassionate price were logged for each strain and, in the cases where ranges of cannabinoids were given, midpoint averages were used. Active THC/CBD is used where the information is specified. For the producers offering volume discounts, we’ve used the cost for the smallest size available. In cases where the same strains were offered by two different providers, and for strains that were available in whole flower and blended form, data was logged for each instance.

All flower and blended dried cannabis offerings were categorized according to cannabinoid content. Offerings with ratios of 1.4+ THC:CBD were considered THC offerings. Those with 1.4-0.3 THC:CBD were considered 1:1 offerings, while the remainder (<0.3 THC:CBD) were considered CBD offerings.

There were 158 blends and flowers available from the 21 Licensed Producers in the ACMPR this month. The average number of selections per producer is just over 7—no change from last month. Most producers carried at least 5 THC offerings and at least one 1:1 offering. Strains containing negligible amounts of THC compared to CBD were less available: just 8 of 21 producers carried this type of offering.

Canada’s Island Garden is showing 4 initial offerings on their website. As soon as they release pricing, we’ll include them in this summary.

Of the 158 currently available offerings, 126 of them (80%) contained significant amounts of THC to CBD. As noted above, 8 of the 158 (5.1%) were found to have significant amounts of CBD with negligible amounts of CBD. The remaining 20% were found to be 1:1 offerings with comparable cannabinoid content (32 offerings).

The average price per gram for a gram of cannabis in the ACMPR was found to be $9.35.

Looking at price with respect to cannabinoid content, the average price for 100mg of THC is $5.41. Per producer, prices ranged from $3.07 to $8.57 per 100 milligrams of THC.

Prices are typically higher for CBD strains: the average price of 100mg of CBD was $7.19 this month. Average prices per producer ranged from $5.33 to $10.00 per 100 milligrams .

For 100mg of THC/CBD from a 1:1 strain, the average price is $5.54. Producer averages ranged from $3.81 to $9.20 per 100 milligrams of either cannabinoid.
