The Price Is HIGH

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, January, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
the-price-of-weed-is-too-highIf you think that you're high, just wait until you hear about the prices that are coming with the legal weed in Colorado. Smoking without worrying about cops busting down your door is dope, don't get me wrong. But how keen are you on paying $100 for an eighth of weed that used to cost you $50 from your friend across town. Are the prices high enough to turn some stoners away from legal bud and back to street dealers? It's possible with a slight sacrifice.
 
People showed up to wait for legal bud on the 1st of this month got a real shock when they reached the registers to pay for their pack of legal pot. The 25% tax is a lot more intimidating when you're looking at your tab on the computer display. And what if you're that asshole that didn't happen to bring enough money? Now you're just holding up the line and everyone behind is you is cranky and sober. Rachel Gillette, the executive director at NORML, witnessed top shelf cannabis being sold to recreational users at a whopping $400 an ounce, a price tag you rarely see with the exception of the far north states, where growing marijuana is difficult indoors and the outdoor conditions are too unpredictable. Forget about the fact that this $400 price didn't include the 25% marijuana tax or the state issued tax that is also applied. Talk about breaking the bank. Medical prices will remain at their normal price, which is around $20 an ounce plus tax, a staggering drop from the recreational price. Medical cannabis users will also avoid the 25% tax, which will only apply to recreational users in the state and tourists.
 
The prices are all over the place, with some dispensaries selling an eighth at $25 one day and $70 the next. Hopefully, these amounts will stabilize quickly, giving recreational users a better idea at what they'll be paying if they want to smoke. It may take a bit but even the tax may decrease, once state lawmakers figure out that legalizing cannabis can only be a good thing for their local economies.
 
Last year, Colorado State released a report saying that the estimated level price of an ounce at retail will end up being somewhere around $185 an ounce before taxes. That seems like an alright price, definitely as compared to the insane $400 an ounce price that currently seems to be the norm. If the prices don't fall, then it's estimated that a lot of stoners will fall back to the black market and street dealers, in order to keep some of their hard earned money in their pockets.

Strain Review; Mango Kush

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, January, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
mang-kush-strain-review
Kush is always a favorite among stoners, especially the fruitiest ones. They're easy to smoke, taste good, and look awesome too. Mango kush absolutely falls in to the category. The buds are lightish green, almost a yellow color and are covered in the sparkling beauty of trichomes. With simply just it's looks, Mango Kush can impress even the snobbiest smoker in to giving it a try... And usually, everyone approves!
 
If the sight of this dank strain isn't enough to get you to try it out, perhaps the smell will be enough. With an underlying skunk smell, the bud mostly smells like a bottle of mango puree; just like the fruit it's named for. The taste is the same, almost identical to the fruit. Taking a hit of Mango Kush is almost as good as taking a bite out of a fresh squeezed mango. One hit is enough to get you high, as the strain is highly potent. And as a Hybrid (dominant indica), it's sure to leave you stuck to the couch if you're not careful!
 
The effect of MK is instant, making it perfect for patients trying to sleep or those that need some serious pain relief right away. Perfect for people who get migraines often or those with chronic afflictions, Mango Kush should be kept close at hand instead of that bottle of Ibuprofen. The effects will also last a long time, with some stoners reporting that their high lasted for up to four hours. If you need a long lasting, well working strain to cure that chronic pain, Mango Kush is what you've been looking for!

Colorado Shops Are Running Out Of Legal Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Wed, January, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
colorado-running-out-of-legal-weed
What happens when you only have a little over 20 places to buy legal marijuana in Colorado, but have everyone and their grandma traveling there to buy legal marijuana? It doesn’t take an Economics major to figure out that supply won’t be able to keep up with demand, especially with a seed-to-sale model like Colorado’s. Multiple media reports are suggesting that Colorado marijuana stores are running low on supply, and in one Case (The Clinic) they actually ran out for a day.
 
Colorado has a very tightly regulated recreational marijuana model which makes it impossible to get non-regulated marijuana into stores. I remember a handful of years ago when Colorado didn’t have the 70% grow rule for medical marijuana dispensaries, and dispensaries were running out of supply and supplemented it with marijuana from wherever they could get it. A lot of my friends from Oregon were running a lot of pounds to Colorado during those times. But those days are gone.
 
Now that demand is clearly outweighing supply, Colorado marijuana stores are rationing their supplies and/or raising prices. The price raising has drawn some criticism, but mainly from veterans inside of Colorado and on the West Coast where marijuana prices are very cheap. I haven’t heard anyone buying legal marijuana in Colorado that is from a non-marijuana friendly state complain about prices. To quote my cousin from Idaho, “I’d LOVE to pay those prices for that quality of marijuana. It’s a far better deal than we have here in Idaho!”
 
The shortage of legal marijuana and high prices will be short-lived. More marijuana is being grown to meet the demand, and as more stores open up, the prices will come down with competition. Well, at least in theory. When all 136 stores are open, if people are still coming out in the numbers they have been so far, it might surprise people just how much marijuana people can smoke and/or eat in the form of edibles. Hopefully it will lead to even more retail licenses being issued so that the consumer can get the same price or better at a retail establishment than they can on the black market.
