Consuming cannabis-based products comes in a wide variety of options. Many cannabis users choose to consume their weed via edibles or through various forms of concentrate such as hash, oil and shatter.
Concentrates: The average price per gram for Shatter goes for anywhere between $30 – $50 Canadian dollars, with prices getting lower when you buy more of the product in bulk. You may be saying to yourself, how is this considered cheap? Well, concentrates pack a lot more THC per gram then your average gram of flower. For example, the shatter you find at Haute Health averages anywhere between 40%-80% THC per gram, opposed to the flower which at its highest is around 20%-25% THC. So you might pay more for per gram for shatter but you get a lot more bang for your buck in THC percentage.
You get the most bang for your buck when you purchase shatter through Haute Health, our shatter is the lowest price in Canada starting at just $15 a gram.
Edibles: Similar to concentrates, edibles can pack a lot of punch in a small amount, but unlike concentrates, edibles can be very cost effective. The most cost effective way to consume edibles is if you make them yourself at home. For example, Haute sells what is known as Shake, which consists of small pieces of cannabis flower that break off of our larger buds, generally as the result of regular handling. Shake is commonly used when making edibles at home, especially with prices like Haute where you can get 28 grams (1 ounce) of shake for only $28. You can buy a batch of cookies mix, cake mix or brownie mix at your local grocery store for a few dollars, add the shake and BAM! You have enough edibles to last you weeks, with a very very low cost. Other options for edibles can be just as cost effective, you can find a pack of your favorite candy infused with 20% THC per candy, with 6 in a pack for as low as $15.
Flower: Cannabis flower prices offer the widest range of price when it comes to buying THC products. Using your provincial licensed producers tends to offer decent variety but with inflated prices. The average cost of a gram of cannabis through the provincial legal dispensaries is between $6-$14. Comparing that to an online dispensary like Haute, where you can buy a gram of cannabis for as low as $3.
Depending on how experienced you are of a smoker, cost effective purchasing is selective. If you are a heavy cannabis consumer options like concentrates and edibles are probably the best choice due to the relatively affordable prices for the high amounts of THC you get. If you only consume flower your best choice is to buy through sites like Haute Health where they can offer you the lowest prices in the country. When smoking flower your costs become inflated with the purchase of lets say rolling papers, bongs or pipes, but these offer more bang for your buck because they provide you with a stronger high and are the types of products that last for years.
