California now has the largest legal marijuana market, not only in the country but in the world! Is this the reason why California Dispensary Weed Prices are so high? Well, maybe it is. California is about to post a record of $3.1 billion in its cannabis sales this 2019. This is why they now have the solid status of being the largest legal marijuana market compared to other countries in the world.

Cannabis prices lately are outrageous. But everyone knows that good cannabis does not come cheap. If you want high-quality cannabis, then you should pay more for that. But just how much are you willing to spend for high-quality buds? Even though prices of cannabis fluctuate, these seven expensive buds remain to be the most sought-after, yet priciest ever.

Fruity Pebbles

This is a colorful hybrid strain that was released in 2012 by Alien Genetics. The Fruity Pebbles was a cross of Granddaddy Purple, Green Ribbon, and Tahoe Alien. This is a strain that’s indica-dominant hybrid and is known to cause potent mind and body effects. The Fruity Pebbles was loved by many not only because of its delicious and star-burst aroma but also because this strain usually features an almost rainbow color. They were only on the marketfor a limited time, but reportedly, people bought them for as much as $1,000 to $5,000 per pack.

Isla OG Canned Cannabis

This is a Californian cannabis brand that sells for up to $800 per ounce. The Isla OG Canned Cannabis was sold for a single can that contains an eighth of an ounce of the dried flowers for $100. Nobody can really say why this is so expensive. After the buds are trimmed, they’re placed inside the can to cure. So, when you open the top, you will be welcomed by the freshness and crispiness of the herb that was cured just right.


J1 is a very popular top-shelf hybrid but is also known to be very expensive. The prices for this strain vary depending on location, but this is cheaper in some states. In Los Angeles, J1 is believed to cost over $350 per ounce. Is it a cost-effective medicine? Probably not! But this is very expensive because it is crystal-coated, and it produces an upbeat sativa-dominant high. J1 is your kind of strain if you are looking for something that is not overly stimulating. What J1 does is that ithelps you focus better and helps you relax. This is why J1 is considered as the best daytime strain.

Marijuana Dispensary

Loud Dream

This is a hybrid strain and was sold on the black market for as much as $800 per ounce. This is a rare sativa backcross of a famous hybrid between the Blue Dream. It is believed to produce indica predominantly and/or sativa effects. However, this strain can come on fast and very strong. Only a few puffs, and you feel the energy, spunk, and the ‘wake ‘n bake’ kind of feel. The THC levels of the Loud Dream are astronomical and often feature between 26% and 28%. For a high-energy sativa hybrid, this strain produces a very impressive amount of resin.


Before anything else, know that this strain is a fake. This was once thought of as the rarest and the most expensive worldwide. Online advertising promised that this bud could produce over 40% of THC levels. This is why clones from this strain were sold for over $1,000, and the seed for $200. A lot of people raced to have the Oracle. In fact, Tre Werk Shop, a laboratory that is based in California, analyzed the strain and later on found out that this is genetically identical to ACDC, a high CBD strain.


This is the combination of Jack Herer and G-130. This is another potent hybrid that will definitely cost you every penny. XJ-13 is believed to have higher than the average THCV. This is believed to be very helpful to individuals with metabolic disorders such as diabetes. The levels of THCV will vary with each sample. But the strain quickly developed as one of the rarest cannabis flowers that do not give munchies.

Many believe that legalized marijuana is much more expensive than the ones that people get from the black market because of the taxes. Regardless, just think of the benefits that one can get out of this alternative. Many people can attest to its effectiveness, which is why more and more investors are starting their own cannabis-based business.
