Lol, in a few years time you will look back those prices fondly as the good old days as you are offered $150 per kilo for organic, hand manicured, long cured AAA grade bud.
Just wait until specialized mechanization of cannabis cultivation takes over..one thing is for sure is that commercial indoor growing will largely disappear and kilos of bud grown by a multi-national company will be made into cigarettes and 98% of smokers will smoke that corporate crap.
but all is not lost, the big corporations will try to grab the bulk of the market while "Mom and Pop" growers should specialize in niche products like a Thai that takes 20 weeks to finish in a greenhouse or produce very pure dry sift or grow a special medical cannabis cultivar or produce seeds or sell clones or sell plants in pots that are 3 weeks from harvest? or turn your harvest into Malawi cobs or 100 other niches...adapt, specialize and thrive by having what hardly no one else is selling.
I think the small grower should focus on growing the most beautiful flowers, gently handled all the way until it is all jarred up. The concentrate market is going to be very flooded.
It appears so many growers and brokers are bouncing the flowers on screens before reselling, they won't last long.
Beautiful flowers, in glass jars.
I think if one could afford it, preserving solventless (preferably) and storing it for years as an investment. Put away the best rosin or dry sift you have made for 10 years and sell it then.
I make so little rosin I do not get to see it age past the 1 month mark so far haha
