The cannabis industry in Canada has been evolving rapidly since legalization in 2018, and with this evolution comes fluctuating prices and market trends. This article delves into a comprehensive analysis of the average prices of whole flower cannabis products across nine provinces and two territories from January 2021 to June 2023. By examining data obtained from publicly available listings on private and provincial webstores, we aim to provide valuable insights into the pricing dynamics and trends in the Canadian cannabis market.


The provinces included in the analysis are Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Newfoundland, Northwest Territories, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Yukon Territory, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. The data is from publicly available listings displayed online at private and provincial webstores. Prices are in Canadian dollars without sales tax included.

We have calculated the average prices for whole flower cannabis available in each major package size, including 1 gram, 3.5 grams (commonly referred to as an eighth), 7 grams (a quarter), 14 grams (a half-ounce), and 28 grams (an ounce).


Price Averages

Looking at the static averages from January 2021 to June 2023, the average retail price without tax of whole flower cannabis ranged from $10.80 for a 1-gram package up to $133.12 for a 28-gram package.

The average price per gram of whole flower cannabis decreases as the package size increases. Moving from a 1-gram package to a 3.5-gram package, the average price per gram drops from $10.80 to $10.04, representing a decrease of approximately 6.92%. Transitioning to a quarter-ounce or 7-gram package, the average price per gram drops to $7.68, indicating a further decrease of around 23.11% compared to the 3.5-gram package. For a half-ounce or 14-gram package, the average price per gram drops to $6.60, reflecting a decrease of approximately 14.06% compared to the 7-gram package. Finally, when moving to a full ounce or 28-gram package, the average price per gram drops below five dollars to $4.75 per gram, indicating a decrease of around 27.27% compared to the 14-gram package.

In terms of savings from the largest (28g) to the smallest (1g) package size, transitioning from a full ounce or 28-gram package to a 1-gram package offers the highest savings of approximately 56.48%.
