Nova Scotia Cannabis Consumer Report5 min read

I lived in Nova Scotia for a few years, in Halifax. I’d buy a half of mids for about $100 from my genetics lab partner who lived near Coburg, and grab some cigars from the small tobacconist adjacent to Sobey’s on Queen and Fenwick St. I lived in the seemingly dilapidated Fenwick Tower at the time, and I’d hang as far as I could out the 25th floor window in hopes my roommate wouldn’t smell the smoke.

Halifax is easy to love. I have fond memories of running in Point Pleasant Park, Lebanese wraps at Tarboosh, Sushi at Minato and 3 for $5 draft beer at the Split Crow. The city and more still, the outlying landscape of Nova Scotia has much character, and I’m really looking forward to seeing it represented in Canada’s Cannabis market.


This report summarizes one month of listings from the mynslc 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

Now we’ll look 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. 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’s 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.

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. Nova Scotia is the only province that groups all THC dominant dried cannabis offerings into graduated range set, 5-10%, 10-15%, 15-20% and 20%+ THC. We’re looking at only those with contents listed as over 20% THC. We mind price here too, relative information is shown by colour. Hover/tap for detailed information.
