Weed in Canada has ZERO value

Everyone can’t grow good bud nor will they try once the Government figure regulation out imo the weed will suck!
I think it will be like everything else you will still be able to pay a premium price for very good bud. Doesn't really matter to me either way because I have the skill set to grow great stuff for myself. I think the shift will happen when there is no longer a black market in the United States. I'm a hundred percent convinced the black market is holding up these larger legal cannabis companies that we all know are shipping their s*** into the illegal States whether they want to admit it or not. Once there is no demand whatsoever for that it will go downhill because the profit margins won't be there

At some point in Canada there will be the MJ equivalent to craft beers from small hobby farmers. Humans like niche and limited edition in the names.

The LPs are too big but it continues to get reduced. But as a necessary evil, we as legal growers need them so the tides never reverse.

Local special here of 5 gram assorted shatter for $100.
Not bad for only buying 5 grams. Slabs here are $10 a gram easy all day. Some guy even offered the $5 a gram to me a month ago. Overloaded he said.

if slabs are 10 a gram 10x5g=50 for 5! & you’re saying 5 grams for a hundred? hmm… please make what you stated make sense maybe i’m missing something here?

Sure...what I'm saying is there is a local delivery service near me that is retailing 5 grams of assorted shatter for $100. So $20 per gram.
But if you know someone in the right loop you can buy slabs of shatter for only $10 per gram. So a discount for quantity.
Hope that was better.

I bought Canadian bud a few weeks back in the U.K.

First time I’ve known anyone to import from Canada. Guy gets Cali shipped over every other week.

Of course it will! Good bud is where you find it dispensary weed is shitty for the most part. I recently went to Vegas their dispensary is dog shit! I went to multiple & said fuck it & went to Cali which was decent! i’ve gotten street weed in early 2000s that’s better than everything floating around now!
Is Vegas weed shit? I was hoping it would be as good as Cali. It’s easy to visit Vegas for a few days.

The last lot of Oreoz I tried from Cali was great (2 weeks ago). Bitcoin dropping seems to be slowing U.K. imports.

While in a different sector;
I've had a little experience with small businesses. And seeing them building into power houses (growing from a base of hundreds ..to millions of clients/end users).
imho, many do seem to over stretch their business way too early. Mostly through hubris and wide eyed entrepreneurism (this has even caused establish companies to fall). The trick, does seem to be; 'build a rock solid base'.
A base you could live on if need be ..without the need to build it up more.
Once that is done, the sky is the limit! ..just work each rung of the ladder one at a time :)

imho - The 'little guy' could still run a small business and focus on top tier genetics/phenos and growing, creating a good niche market.
Top quality, selection (and continually looking for new ones to cycle in once in a while). Plus, a strong focus on customer needs.
Really, you just need a specific number of clients, a quality product, service and business plan and pricing (probably, based on number of clients).
If you can build up a product range like this and 'cycle' them (to keep interest, fun and curiosity high). Plus, maybe adding a few of your own 'bells and whistles' (specials etc). Then, you should be able to create a nice little cottage industry :)

Once you have that little cottage industry ticking over nicely. It can act as a fallback/safety net, if you decide to attempt an expansion in a particular business direction.


P.s:
I'm available for hiring ..from time to time ;-)

That might be so in any normal business not regulated like weed is in Canada. For the money it takes to build out a legal dispensary in BC I'd rather find a good spot and start a sushi or donaire restaurant and have $200K still in my pocket. Also you don't just get to go to the supplier and touch, smell and sample the product.

True, the laws there do seem 'confining'.
Talking of other industries; maybe, look into getting an App developed? :)
That helps clients find the best dispensary for their needs (based on search criteria the User selects.
You could charge the end user, the dispensaries ..and even look to exploit other advertising revenue.
Although, I figure the market for this App idea is long oversaturated ..there usually is a niche that can be found ;)

Salutations,

From one of the sacrificed no-mans lands. Forget reason anyway, words have become meaningless: it's just pure vile politics.

Good day, have fun!! :peace:

The system is rigged in favour of large LP's. Even small scale build out is in the millions and no license until its built. You cant sell your product directly, only to large LP...its completely fuct. IMO you have to be fuckin crazy (or a politician) to get into legal weed atm...

Go buy a ACMPR exemption while you still can!

What is everyone's opinion on the "free market" over the next 5-10 years?

Is this the bottom as far as pricing goes? Do you think prices will stabilize to what they were prepandemic?

Where I live you can get mids for $79cad an oz black market.
At the legal store my friend told me you can get a oz for $79cad but when he showed it to me it was super stemy,popcorn buds with immature seeds and shake,looked like trim and hash materials

Edit- and the black market would give a deal for bulk lol

That's cheap it's not even that in bc, maybe $100 the lowest I've seen but shatter is it cheap now.

Supposedly the orders are to be open next week to the US so will see and watch.

I decided to try to get my class 3 license as back up if nothing changes as got a customer that can get me into a city job at $30/hr

Very interesting discussion. IMO there shouldn't be a black market for weed. People grow veg at home but rarely sell it because mass production makes so much more sense. Same thing with any plant based product.

I don't understand why dispensary weed is so poor quality right now. I assume too many people with no idea what they are doing are producing it. Ultimately, it'll improve to the point where home growing doesn't provide a better or cheaper option, only a fun hobby. Mature "legal" markets like Holland surely prove this. Coffeeshop weed is great and has been for decades. People still grow their own, but really don't need to.
