Market Analysis:

Kush crushed the competition and once again finished as the month’s most submitted strain. After losing the top pot spot in December 2009, Kush submissions have been pouring in, and the strain has yet to be dethroned in 2010. The top-five performers have been fairly consistent thus far; however, Trainwreck made the cut for the first time this year, dislodging Strawberry Cough.

 

The top five submitted strains (with average price) were Kush ($400), Diesel ($408), Purps ($359), Blueberry ($387) and Trainwreck ($351).

 

Index Watch: All indices rebounded from last month’s dip with the exception of Kind (-$26), which finished well below its previous-month and year-to-date averages. 

 

CURRENT US PRICE INDEX: $368 (last month: $342, Year-to-Date: $359)

CURRENT KIND INDEX ($350+ PER OZ): $414 ($440, $432)
CURRENT MIDS INDEX ($150-$349 PER OZ): $296 ($253, $283)

Blue Dream - $400

“Nicely manicured, light green indoor. Very smooth smoke with a great flavor. If I’m correct it’s from Nor Cal. This stuff is some of the nicer indoor bud I have seen in a while.”
