ACMPR cannabis oil price scan, Mar 19, 2017

A pricing overview for cannabis oils currently available from licensed producers

Cannabinoid content and the price of medical cannabis in Canada vary with licensed producer, location of production, and production method. We track cannabinoid content and pricing data for all available cannabis oils to understand how these prices change over time, and to highlight offerings with the best value.

Publicly available information from licensed producer websites was logged March 19th 2017 for all available cannabis oils in the ACMPR. Potential THC and CBD content was logged from each producer website. In cases where percent values were given, the datum was converted to mg/mL units. Cannabinoid ratios with dried cannabis are used for producers that do not show actual medicinal content of oils. Non-compassionate pricing was taken for each offering, and for LPs offering multiple volumes, we’ve shown the price for the largest volume. Each instance was counted for offerings of the same cannabis oil in different concentrations. Cannabis oils available in two separate forms (oil and capsules) were counted once.

The number of cannabis oils available to ACMPR patients increased to 62 this month. In total, 15 producers produce oils for their patients, and 14 of these producers had oils available at the time of this scan. All producers with oils available had at least one THC oil in their store. Of the 15 producers, 7 had at least one cannabis oil with significant amounts of CBD (and negligible amounts of THC) available. Eleven of 15 producers had at least one 1:1 offering available with comparable amounts of THC and CBD.

Most producers have at least 2 selections of cannabis oils containing significant amounts of THC available. These THC offerings had an average of 23.14 mg/mL of THC. Thirteen percent of the offerings (8 selections) had significant amounts of CBD compared to amounts of THC. These CBD offerings had an average of 19.36 mg of CBD per mL of oil. The remaining 12 (19%) offerings had even or comparable amounts of THC and CBD (1:1 cannabis oils).

The average price for 10mg of THC was $1.01, down from $1.02 last month. Aphria’s Champlain Indica is the lowest price for THC, at $0.61 per 10mg THC.

The average cost for 10mg CBD was $1.49, down from $1.61 last month. For the fourth month in a row, Canntrust’s CBD offering maintains the market minimum price ($0.90 per 10mg). Aphria also had CBD oils priced below $1.00 per 10mg of CBD.

For 10mg of either tetrahydrocannabinol or cannabidiol (THC or CBD) from 1:1 strains the price was $1.23, up from $1.14 when this summary was performed on the 28th of February 2017. The minimum price for THC/CBD cannabinoids from a 1:1 cannabis oil was $0.67, from Aphria’s Capilano Hybrid Oil. Tweed and Canntrust also have selections of oil with prices below the $1.00 mark for 10mg of THC/CBD.

    Hello Brad, Why then are the oils so expensive on the USA retail shops...I want wholesale with the quality for patients who need medical care?

    I was dumbfounded when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. I couldn’t believe that at age 44, after lifelong vigilance about my health and steadfastly showing up for regular mammograms and sonograms, I not only had cancer, but it had metastasized throughout my bones. I had bought into the battle cry for early detection and tried to practice it. How could this be?
    Pain in my hand, neck and back, not a lump in my breast, got me to the hospital for an MRI. By the time my cancer was detected, the horse was out of the barn and surgery to remove it was no longer an option. Not wanting to travel, I was lucky to be able to take treatment at a clinic on Long Island near my home. Being ER and PR positive, at their direction had my ovaries removed to reduce the estrogen in my body. I began an aromatase inhibitor to slow the progression of the disease and medication to reduce or delay bone damage from the cancer.

    It’s been a rough road and along the way I have tried to expand my options by exploring ways to supplement my traditional medical treatments, because i have been told about cannabis oil and how it has saved many lives. i ordered the oil via email:timothyquill@yahoo.com and it was delivered over to me and i can tell the world that i am now a cancer survivor
