Oregon marijuana prices in 2019: Where to shop

Oregon marijuana prices

Marijuana prices in Oregon are falling this year. The average for a gram is currently $11, where it’s been all year. But the average for an ounce is down to $211.

And remember, these are average prices. Savvy shoppers can almost always find qualities dispensaries offering great deals on cannabis, especially right now in Oregon.

There’s a heavy surplus of cannabis in the state. In fact, there’s more weed than Oregon’s 4 million residents could ever hope to smoke.

That’s because there are about 2,100 grower licensees in the state and enough weed that it would take around 6.5 years to sell it all in Oregon, according to a 2019 Oregon Liquor Control Commision report. And that’s without any more production.

That excess of cannabis has driven down prices drastically. It’s now possible to find a gram for as low as $3. 😮

Needless to say, it’s a good time for consumers in the state looking for high-quality cannabis at a very affordable price.

Keep in mind that marijuana prices vary by city, season, strain and other variables.

For example, you’ll pay an average of $13 in Portland for an ounce, $10 in Eugene and $11 in Bend.

Finding the best deals

Comparison shopping is crucial if you want to find the best deals on cannabis, the best strains and the best quality dispensaries.

You can potentially save more than $1,000 per year on your favorite cannabis strains — depending on how much you purchase — just by shopping around.

Beware of buying on the black market

According to Paul G., a grower in Oregon, a lot of the cannabis available on the black market can be covered in pesticides and really should not be smoked. That goes for products at some dispensaries as well.

And, “If you aren’t going to buy from a dispensary because of the prohibitive cost of their quality cannabis strains, it is really important to find someone you trust,” he notes.

Get in touch with someone who grows high-quality cannabis without chemicals, he says.
