When it comes to growing cannabis, going organic is the best way to ensure that your plants are free of chemical pesticides. To naturally deter pests, you can create a mixture of pressed garlic, cloves, anise, lavender oils, hot pepper juices, and water and spray it on your plants using a mister. If you need a stronger solution, you can turn to an organic pesticide called Spinosad, which uses a fermented bacteria that targets the central nervous system of pests like caterpillars.
When it comes to pricing cannabis oil, there are several factors to consider. First and foremost is the legal status of the product, which determines which markets it can be sold in. Currently, most cannabis production is technically illegal, which distorts price expectations. Additionally, the quality and safety of the product can significantly impact the cost of production. To sell to highly regulated markets like Canada, Europe, and Australia, producers must follow strict standards for safety and quality, which raises production costs.
The quantity of cannabis oil also has a big impact on pricing. While consumers may pay $100 per gram for medical products, dealers and distributors typically buy by the kilogram and pay closer to $20 per gram. Large companies are also buying up entire contracted productions from low-cost producers in South America and elsewhere for as little as $1 to $5 per gram, although this product may not meet the legal and quality criteria required to sell in the most profitable markets.
Ultimately, the price you pay for cannabis oil depends on where and to whom you plan to sell it, as well as the quantity you intend to purchase. When buying larger quantities, you can expect to pay less per gram than if you were buying a smaller amount.
