Market Analysis:

We have a tie! Kush and Purps finished with the same number of submissions in August, resulting in the first-ever tie for the top pot spot. While unprecedented, it’s appropriate that the two most popular strains of the year thus far should share this honor. The top 5 submitted strains of the month (with average price) were: Kush ($403) and Purps ($408), Diesel ($415), Train Wreck ($383) and Haze ($367).

Index Watch: Are pot prices beginning to reflect the rotten economy? It certainly appears that way. All indices, with the exception of Mids, were down from both their previous month and year-to-date averages.

CURRENT US PRICE INDEX: $345 (last month: $381, Year-to-Date: $373)
CURRENT KIND INDEX ($350+ PER OZ): $428 ($434, $446)

CURRENT MIDS INDEX ($150-$349 PER OZ): $262 ($258, $267)
CURRENT SCHWAG INDEX ($1-$149 PER OZ): $85 ($92, $90)

QUOTES:
 
Candy - $280
Sacramento, CALIFORNIA

“The name says it all. A Blueberry x Haze #2 x California Orange Bud cross. So crystal-coated, the organic buds appear as if they were dipped in powdered sugar and taste like it, too. Soaring sativa high with hints of citrus and berries in these fluffy, bright green nugs. NorCal only strain, so good luck finding it anywhere else.”

 
Afghan Goo - $400
Atlanta, GEORGIA

“Best bang for the buck. Super fragrant and sticky when broken up with a great head high.”

 
White Widow - $750
Baltimore, MARYLAND

“I didn’t get ripped off. I swear this was worth every fucking penny. Veteran toker since the 70s. Dankest. buds. ever.”

 
Sour Diesel - $500
Bowie, MARYLAND

“Ah, that Sour Diesel. It is one of my all-time favorites. It has such a unique potent smell and taste that's just screaming ‘I'm an elite strain, smoke me and you will be stoned!’ One of the best highs I've encountered in my days of connoisseurship.

 
Bubblegum - $550
Lakewood, OHIO

“This is some killer stuff. Pungent aroma leads to a surprisingly smooth toke. The high is very cerebral with a narcotic body buzz.”
