ACMPR Cannabis Oils – 1/27/17Market Reports
Cannabinoid content and the price of medical cannabis in Canada vary with licensed producer, location of production, and production method. We track cannabinoid content and pricing data for all available cannabis oils to understand how these prices change over time, and to highlight offerings with the best value.
Publicly available information from licensed producer websites was logged for all available cannabis oils in the ACMPR. The data for this summary was taken January 27th 2017, and only available offerings were included. Potential THC and CBD content were logged from each website and averaged in the cases where ranges were given. In cases where percent values were given, the datum was converted to mg/mL units. Ratios are used for producers that do not show actual medicinal content of oils. Non-compassionate pricing was taken for each offering, and for LPs offering multiple volumes, we’ve shown the price for the largest volume. In cases where the same strains were offered by two different providers, data was logged for each separate instance. Each instance was counted for offerings of the same cannabis oil available in two different forms or concentrations (oil and capsules).

THC and CBD content and non-compassionate price were logged for each selection and, in the cases where ranges of cannabinoids were given, midpoint averages were used.
