The Cannabis Benchmark analysts commented in its recent report:
The U.S. Spot Index ticked upward this week by just over 2%, despite declines in the volume-weighted average rates of both sun-fueled grow types. Pricing for outdoor-grown product was down only slightly. Despite the fall in rates for greenhouse product being proportionally larger than the increase experienced by indoor flower, the latter wielded the greatest influence on the national composite rate this week.
Indoor flower prices ranged from $999 to $6,500 per pound, with the median price at $2,000. Greenhouse flower prices ranged from $600 to $2,500 per pound, and the median price was $1,320. Outdoor flower prices ranged from $800 to $1,800 per pound; the median price was $1,050.
