Oregon Market Report August 2019: Cash on Demand for Flower

It’s a seller’s market in Oregon, and some buyers are paying cash on demand instead of adding funds to an account and paying when the product sells buyers are paying for product upon delivery.

 

It’s almost time for outdoor crops to harvest soon and growers are looking to sell before the influx of flower hits Wholesale. We believe this is the next level of Oregon’s market change and indicates a trend of pre-ordering flower before harvest to ensure quality products make it to dispensary shelves. 

 

While outdoor, greenhouse and light dep harvests will be hitting the market over the next 2 months, and prices will certainly shift downward as a result, we don’t anticipate prices hitting the all time lows the Oregon market was seeing in January. By all indicators, cultivators have less harvest stock hitting the market this season than we saw last fall.

 

The Oregon market is thriving and, with that bounty, it’s also evolving. Each month our team uncovers new trends that we report directly to you. August was a very busy month, beginning the next phase of a flourishing market. If you need supply in the next few weeks or have product you want buyers to know about, email us to make deals happen!
