Why California’s Legal Weed May Cost More
Despite the many stories about the recent drop in weed prices, some in the industry fear that cultivation, production and retail regulations could drive up weed prices in California—just when consumers can finally buy it legally.
Jonathan Rubin of New Leaf Data Services thinks prices will go up because of compliance costs and testing.
“I can almost guarantee bottlenecks in testing and permits,” Rubin told LA Weekly.
No doubt California is going to stick to the letter of the law.
California pot czar Lori Ajax, who called the state’s entire regulatory scheme a work in progress, said it may take months for enough testing labs to be properly screened and licensed to handle the supply of weed expected to be sold starting in January.

75 Percent of Indoor Pot Plants Come From California
It has been reported that California grows more weed than it knows what to do with. Now, we’re realizing that the wild, wondrous and illegal weed that once bloomed in the California’s many national forests and other outdoor locations is being cultivated indoors under LED lights with all sorts of other technologies.
And, they’re getting busted like crazy.
Federal statistics showed that in 2016, authorities seized 313,000 plants from indoor operations in California, which made up 75 percent of all indoor plants nabbed nationwide, according to the DEA.
So, not only is California growing more weed than it can use, it’s growing most of the rest of the country’s illegal weed. Maybe we already knew that, too.
Although the total accounts for only eight percent of all seizures in California, it’s the highest total in at least the past eight years.
Juicy Fruit (Hybrid)
Juicy Fruit is a sweet smelling strain of Thai origin that is usually bright green in color with lots of purple and orange hairs embedded into the bud. Juicy Fruit smells most strongly of fruit punch and lemons, and when the bud is ground up it releases a very strong skunky smell. The taste of Juicy Fruit is surprisingly less fruity than one might expect, leaning more towards creamy flavors like pina colada and vanilla. The high produced by this strain has a lot to do with its popularity. The most immediate effect of Juicy Fruit is a floating feeling that is a little psychedelic. This is a good strain to share with friends because it makes one feel very uplifted, giggly, and chatty. Juicy Fruit has a clean come down with no lingering after effects and would be a good choice for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, mild pain relief and those in need of a creative boost.
