The Wholesale Cannabis Pricing Guide is a comprehensive analysis of wholesale pricing across the US. In addition to comparing specific markets’ pricing to the national average, this guide takes a deep dive into how pricing impacts sales performance.

2019 Additions

This year, we included the eight states covered in our 2018 guide (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Maryland, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington), plus two that legalized cannabis commerce in late 2018: Michigan and Oklahoma. Over 19,000 unique SKUs across five product categories, or $860M in orders placed through LeafLink, were assessed for the 2019 guide.

We also were able to offer two new analyses: a comparison between 2019 and 2018 pricing, and the retail perspective, allows us to determine average profit margin by category, through a collaboration with Jane Technologies.
