UPDATE – This article has been edited to show the correct price for 10mg THC/CBD from 1:1 oils, previously prices were shown for 20mg THC/CBD. Two copy errors were also corrected, Tweed’s average price for THC oil and prices Canntrust’s CBD and 1:1 oils.


Publicly available information from licensed producer websites was logged for all available cannabis oils in the ACMPR. Data for this summary was taken December 27th 2016, and only available offerings were included. Potential THC and CBD content were logged from each website and averaged in the cases where ranges were given. In cases where percent values were given, the datum was converted to mg/mL units. Non-compassionate pricing was taken for each offering, and for LPs offering multiple volumes, we’ve shown the price for the largest volume. In cases where the same strains were offered by two different providers, data was logged for each separate instance. Each instance was counted for offerings of the same cannabis oil available in two different forms or concentrations (oil and capsules).

Image

The number of oils available to ACMPR patients decreased slightly to 53, down three from the 56 oils available in late November 2016. In total, 14 producers produce oils for their patients, and 13 of these producers had oils available at the time of this scan. All producers with oils available had at least one THC oil in their store. Of the 14 producers, 10 had cannabis oil with significant amounts of CBD available. The average number of selections was the same as last month — four per licensed producer — although maximum and minimum values ranged from 18 to 0 oils. Approximately one-third of all 53 cannabis oils are produced by Whistler.

Seventy-one percent of the total number of cannabis oils had significant amounts of THC compared to other cannabinoids. Seventeen percent (ten) of the offerings had significant amounts of CBD compared to amounts of THC. The remaining five (10%) offerings had even or comparable amounts of THC and CBD (1:1 cannabis oils).

Image

Per medicinal ingredient, THC continued to be the least expensive cannabinoid. The average price for 10mg of THC was $1.26, up from $1.04 last month. For the second month in a row, the minimum price is Tweed at $0.56 per 10mg THC.

Cannabis oils containing significant amounts of CBD continue to be a bit more expensive than THC oils. The average cost for 10mg CBD was $2.00, up from $1.54 last month. Canntrust has a CBD oil with 25mg of CBD per milliliter; 10 mg of CBD from this oil is priced $0.97, representing the minimum value for CBD price.

Cannabis oils with even THC and CBD ratios had the lowest cost per volume. Average price for 10mg of cannabinoids (THC or CBD) from 1:1 strains was $1.18; down from $1.32 when this summary was performed last month. The minimum price for THC/CBD cannabinoids from a 1:1 cannabis oil was $0.78, from Bedrocan’s Bediol.

Dried cannabis price scan, Jan 11 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.

Image

The data for this summary was taken January 11th 2017 (Delta 9 figures January 10 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. 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 161 blends and flowers available from the 21 Licensed Producers in the ACMPR, up from 155 offerings from December 16 2016. The average number of selections per producer is 7 — no change from last month. Most producers carried at least 5 THC offerings, some doubled this average (Hydropothecary and Whistler) while others had one (Aurora, Mettrum) or none (Tweed). Five percent of strains had significant amounts of CBD and negligible amounts of CBD, offered from a third of the producers (Aphria, Aurora, Bedrocan, CanniMed, Canntrust, Hydropothecary, MedReleaf and Tweed). On average, each producer carried a 1:1 strain with significant amounts of THC and CBD, while some had as high as 3 choices (AB Cann, Canna Farms, Hydropothecary, MariCann and Tweed).

Hydropothecary has several new offerings included in the scan this week. Notably, they offer a decarboxylated cannabis product that has been milled and prepared for oral consumption via the provided capsules.

Image

Of the 161 currently available offerings, 123 of them (76%) contained significant amounts of THC to CBD. As noted above, 8 of the 161 (5.0%) were found to have significant amounts of CBD with negligible amounts of CBD. The remaining 19% were found to be 1:1 offerings with comparable cannabinoid content.

The average price per gram for a gram of cannabis in the ACMPR was found to be $9.09, up $0.07 from our December 16 2016 scan.

Image

Looking at price with respect to cannabinoid content, the average prices for 100mg of THC rose slightly from $5.42 to $5.72. Per producer, prices ranged from $3.45 to $9.50 per 100 mg, with Redecan, Aurora and Bedrocan showing lowest averages for 100mg of THC.

Image

This month, 24% of THC offerings (30 of the 123 offerings) claimed above 20% THC. The average THC content for THC offerings was 17%.

Prices are typically higher for CBD strains: the average price of 100mg of CBD was $7.44 this month, down from $8.14 last month. Average prices per producer ranged from $4.21 to $10.34, with Aurora and CanniMed being the lowest cost providers.

Image

Cannabinoid prices from 1:1 offerings have also increased. For 100mg of THC/CBD from a 1:1 strain, the average price is $5.73, up from $5.47 last month. Producer averages ranged from $3.35 to $10.20, with Redecan showing the lowest average prices.

Image

This summary tracks cannabinoid content and price from around the ACMPR. Much of the data presented here is shown as a summarized producer average comprised of several offerings.
