Alberta Cannabis Consumer ReporT5 min read

This report summarizes one month of dried cannabis product listings from the albertacannabis.org online store.

First we lump the historical data together to look at benchmark averages for the store. Then we look at individual listings with respect to those benchmarks. Finally, we’ll sort the listings by a few views based on price and content.

There is no actual price information shown here. Every dollar value is a calculated average, all competitive analysis is shown relative to the average. This won’t find quality cannabis, it’s market information relevant to consumers trying to find quality cannabis.

Market Averages

Here we look at multiple views of the historical average price per gram of dried cannabis for the store. We break it down by dominant cannabinoid, package size and time. The listing range average for cannabinoid content has been used to show price for each listings in the context of 100mg of THC or CBD, which I refer to in this report as active content price or just active price.

Listing Price Variances

Expensiveness is a relative measure. In order to say how expensive something is, we need a figure to compare it to. This can be the minimum amount you can pay for that something, or more commonly, the average asking price of a large pool comparable products. We’ll look at both here, from multiple perspectives. For instance, when determining the value of a 3.5 gram package of a particular cultivar, you’re comparing the observable quality with respect to the general market average price for a gram of cannabis, but also to the average price from a 3.5 gram package from the store and perhaps, the the average price for that particular cultivar, market wide. The view below provides all that information, for every listing of dried cannabis in the store.

Looking at each dried cannabis product that I logged as in stock this month, this view checks each listing against two benchmarks; the store average price per gram for package size (shown numerically) and the market average for that cultivar (shown by colour). Hover/tap each line item for specific readout for that data point. Filter the data by package size using the slider at the top.

Price

Low Cost Listings

This view looks at low cost listings in the store for this month. We look from the minimum price, to a significant deviation under the average of the store for this month. The limit for the dataset has been quantified below the package size filter. Listings are shown ascending from the lowest price. Each cell is coloured according to the listing price relative to the benchmark average for the package size from the store. Hover/tap for listing specific information relative to the store and market.

Low Active Price Listings

Now we look at price as a function of cannabinoid content and look at just the lowest price listings. The limit for this view is shown at the top. Listings are shown ascending from the lowest price. Cells are coloured according to the listing’s active content price relative to the market. Hover/tap each cell for detailed information.

Cannabinoid Content

High CBD Content

This view restricts the listings by the minimum of the listed CBD range. The minimum CBD content appears on the list is shown at the top of the chart and listings are shown in descending order from the highest range average CBD content. Relative price information is also shown in this view, denoted by colour. Hover/tap for detailed information.

High THC Content

Next we look at High THC offerings. The restriction on the minimum end of the range is shown above the chart, listings are shown in descending order from the highest range average for THC. We mind price here too, relative information is shown by colour. Hover/tap for detailed information.
