We’ve recently been tracking some interesting pricing changes in pricing for this Oregon Market Report. First, there is a noted decline in bulk distillate pricing that many will attribute to the vape crisis.
This is not the case, as sales on the vape side have rebounded. Instead, the decline in bulk distillate pricing is a result of high-quality dirt-cheap weed on the market last year. A large group of processors and extractors bought up that flower inventory because it was so affordable—down to as low as $250 per pound at that time. However, because the flower wouldn’t keep for long, they extracted for distillates and stockpiled it.
That decision to take advantage of low prices during the market crash created an oversupply of distillate that people want to move out of their storerooms by lowering the overall cost on the market. Meanwhile, the price of flower is rebounding well as the numbers below demonstrate.
