With all the farms being abated and the “Fed’s” really cracking down heavy right now, licenses expiring and not being renewed, pricing will continue to rise sharply. It’s not about “waiting until the next outdoor harvest” these days. There’s good quality product available. It’s just really hard to get locked in with the farms.
There’s only 9 permanent license holders in the “Emerald Triangle” right now. We work with one of the largest ones up there. July 1, more farms will be shut down with some new laws our Governor has put in place with regard to license renewals. (Or not renewing really).
There are some farms coming on board in San Diego County, but I’m sure most of that product will not be as good as Northern Cal product and will be locked up by contracts from large labs. If labs wait, they will not have any product to keep their machines going. We’re seeing it already happening.
