Dispensary Prices

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 17 December 2021 in Canna Blog

Since the legalization of recreational cannabis use in multiple states, we are seeing new dispensaries open every day - making cannabis more accessible to Americans who want to reap its benefits. However, how do you know if you’re paying the right price for your bud? 

The price of dispensary weed will differ between each dispensary, and many factors determine its cost including, government tax rates, state and municipal laws, geographic location, shipping costs, quality of product, market competition.

We created a small guide so you know what to expect and what prices are fair when purchasing bud from retail vendors.

Weed Dispensary Pricing

Dispensary prices will vary depending on which state you are buying from and the quality of the flower.

Here is the average breakdown:

  • The retail price for a gram of weed will range from $10-15. One gram of bud is approximately 1 or 2 joints, depending on the size.

  • An eighth, which is 3.5 grams, will cost between $30-$40 at the dispensary.

  • A quarter ounce, or 7 grams, will retail at $65-$80 and can roll 14 half-gram joints.

  • An ounce of bud, which equals 28 grams will cost around $200-$350

Here are some other factors that affect the price of dispensary weed:

Weed Prices Throughout Different States

The cannabis market in each state is different, usually, the states who were first to legalize the recreational use of cannabis have the cheapest weed.

This is due to the developed, open, and saturated market.

In the District of Columbia, an ounce of weed retails at $600 whereas, in Oregon, the same amount will go for $200.

Quantity: More is Less

Everyone knows the saying “Less is More,” but that’s not the case with cannabis quantity and price. Usually, the more you buy, the more you’ll save.

Purchasing larger quantities of cannabis will reduce the cost per unit. For example, if you buy an ounce of cannabis, a gram will total at $7-$12, whereas you pay $10-$15 if you choose to buy a gram on its own.

Variety of Strains

Dispensaries offer a wide variety of strains and some strains are of better quality than others.

Furthermore, higher quality strains will cost more due to several factors including:

  • Yield amount (high-quality strains usually have lower yields)

  • Color

  • Trichomes

  • Potency 

  • Cannabinoid and terpene levels

Specialty strains like Loud Dream will cost up to $800 an ounce, but strains like Northern Lights and OG Kush, which are widely available and popular, will retail at around $200-$250. 

Dispensary Prices vs Street Prices

Dispensary prices for weed are higher than what you would find from the street or local dealer because dispensaries have to cover expenses such as employee wages, rent, and utilities.

It costs money to run a storefront, and to make a profit - dispensaries must mark up the prices of their products.

Additionally, licensing, taxation, and regulation rates related to the sale of marijuana are much higher than those of tobacco and alcohol, making legal cannabis much more expensive than illegal cannabis.
