In January 2018, we performed a review of compassion pricing programs from the Licensed Producers in Canada’s ACMPR.
We found that 16 of the 25 producers actively selling cannabis had compassion programs in place. Most programs require patients to meet an income prerequisite and provide a discount on all dried cannabis, or in some cases, a limited selection of products. Most producer’s compassion programs also include oils and other products, but we are only talking about dried cannabis for this visualization. Other stipulations exist and each producer’s program varies slightly, so it’s best to confirm all details by phoning your producer.
In the visualization below, we’ve taken the compassion price discounts for each producer (shown right) and applied them to each producer’s average price for one gram of dried cannabis (shown left, data taken Feb 15 2018). The average price for each producer is denoted by the entire bar, with the average discount shown in blue and the average compassion price shown in grey. Producers without compassion pricing programs are also shown for comparison, entirely in grey.
Keep in mind, we’re using average prices for this exercise, the actual discount will vary with the price of the dried cannabis variety. On average, producer compassion discounts on dried cannabis ranges from $0.92 per gram, up to $3.04 per gram. Looking at each listing separately, compassion discounts vary from $0.58 to $4.38 per gram. The average discount for one gram of dried cannabis from a Licensed Producer compassion price program is $2.04 (Feb 15 2018 current).

Below, we’ve shown a visualization of cannabinoid content for all the dried cannabis listed from Licensed Producers today (November 29th 2017). We found 264 listings of dried cannabis from 25 licensed producers. These numbers are up from the 147 listings and 19 licensed producers we found when we took this data November 2016.
Much of the cannabis available today has high THC content and low CBD content, you can see them all crowded along the x-axis on the visualization below. More than three quarters of the varieties available (78% or 205 listed varieties) have high THC contents, the average THC content of this group is 16.66%
Less than a fifth of the total listings are for 1:1 varieties of dried cannabis, those with comparable THC and CBD contents. There are 44 of these listings in total or 17% of total listings.
High CBD varieties make up 6% of total listings (15 listings). These are varieties with very little THC compared to their CBD content. The average CBD content of this group is 13.86%.
