How much does Medical Marijuana Cost?
One question that comes up often when talking to medical patients all over the state is “How much should marijuana really cost me?” It’s an interesting question that depends on a lot of different factors. Here are just few:
A). Is it INDICA? Obviously, Indicas are great for relaxation, stress relief, and for an overall sense of calmness.Medical Marijuana indicas are also very effective for overall body pain relief, and often used in the treatment of insomnia. Indica is a evening choice of many smokers as an all - night sleep aid. A few pure indica strains are very potent in THC, and will cause the "couchlock" effect, enabling the smoker to simply sit still and enjoy the experience of the smoke.Some Indicas are $10-$20 higher then sativas.
B). or is it a SATIVA? The effects of a sativa marijuana are mostly cerebral. They give a feeling of optimism and well being, as well as providing a good measure of pain relief for certain symptoms. A few pure sativas are also very high in THC content. They are known to have a quite spacey, or hallucinogenic, effect. Sativas are a good choice for daytime smoking.
C). We hope your going to your local Dispensary? Some dispensaries can charge from $10-$20 for the same strand,depending on how the grower maintained his crops, the chemicals used (check my website for marijuana testing) the best "mainted" medication will always be around $15-$20 a gram aka TOP SHELF and the well not top shelf can be $10-$15 you have to pay careful attention how it was "RAISED" AND if the dispensary takes DEBIT/CREDIT.Making the same strand of medication other places that take cash, $15 while the place that takes debit/credit charge $20. SOME DO CHARGE TAX...check your local dispensary
All these factors combine to create a fair market price for your area. California, I consider $40-$50 for an eighth (3.5 grams) or $200– $300 for an ounce (28 grams) to be an average price for some TOP NOTCH medication (no seeds, no unnecessary stems, well manicured, good smell, etc). But that’s CALIFORNIA where ONLY the best marijuana is grown (and a lot of it too!).
