2013 Top 5 Marijuana Strains: What Will An Ounce Of Good Pot Cost You?



The ebb and flow of marijuana prices throughout the United States is in a constant state of flux. In one state, such as California, with production at an all-time high and collectives being reduced in numbers, there is a perfect storm in market conditions for a downturn in the overall price. While in other states, scarcity – via law of supply and demand – forced prices slightly higher.

According to a recent high times market analysis, all three grades (Chronic, Mid’s and Schwag) took a slight hit in the first six months of 2013. As summer fires up, weed prices across the United States have fallen approximately $10 an ounce from the start of the year. With an average price of $380 an ounce… good pot – may be your cheapest bet for attaining mental tranquility, as Mother Nature cranks up heat across the nation.

Average prices for the top five selling strains:

About Author

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.
