Colorado cannabis wholesale flower prices plummet to all-time low

Did you miss the webinar “Women Leaders in Cannabis: Shattering the Grass Ceiling?” Head to MJBiz YouTube to watch it now!

The wholesale price of cannabis flower in Colorado dropped to an all-time low, reflecting a market saturated with supply and squeezing cultivator margins.

The price per pound was $709 as of July 1, down 46% from $1,309 a year ago and nearly 60% from $1,721 in January 2021, according to Colorado Department of Revenue data.

Previously, the low was $759 a pound in October 2018.

The data is published quarterly, so there are fluctuations within a given quarter.

But the figures indicate the degree of price depression in the market.

That also is reflected in the fact that marijuana sales in dollar amount have declined for 12 months in a row in Colorado, Denver alt-weekly Westword recently reported.
