Sour over price hike

Published on February 10, 2019 by oz. staff

A hefty price hike for one of the most popular cannabis products on the market is not going over well.

The Ontario Cannabis Store raised the cost of Tangerine Dream by San Rafael ’71 to $13.55 a gram, up from $10.40.

“Yeah, no way will I buy that again,” said one customer.

“It was OK for the price but it doesn’t get you close to high enough for $13.55. Honestly really stupid of them. They were in the top tier LP’s people kinda liked, specifically for Tangerine Dream. Now it’s less accessible.”

It’s a sentiment shared by others.

Legal stores are competing with mail order marijuana, local hookups and black market dispensaries that are undercutting legal prices by significant amounts. Many say they are paying as little as $5 a gram on the black market.

Tangerine Dream is holding at $10 a gram in BC. (But it may be a good idea to stock up if this is one of your preferences.)

There is speculation that low supply and high demand in Ontario is causing the spike.
