Every time I look around at different companies selling CBD Flower, I ask why is it so expensive?
I believe almost all CBD products are significantly overpriced but let's take a closer look at flower. Hemp flower is a lot like cannabis except in one critical way. The THC has been bred out of the plant to only trace amounts. This makes hemp flower federally legal while cannabis remains illegal in the vast majority of the world.
Most stores sell grams of hemp flower for $7+ a gram and the price lowers to around $4 a gram if you buy in large quantities. This is an insane price. To understand how insane this price is, let's talk about truffles.
You can buy Italian White Truffles at $100 an ounce or $3.75 a gram. Truffles only grow in specific regions of the world and in very specific circumstances. Most truffles only grow under the roots of hardwood trees that are at least 15 years old. You cannot just start a truffle farm.
You can though start a hemp farm. Hemp loves to grow. It's really hard to mess it up. People worry about things like mold and pollen but that's BS. People growing tomatoes have the same problems but you don't have to buy tomatoes at $2500 a pound.
