mexican brick weed prices

U.S.-grown cannabis cuts into price for Mexican ‘brick weed’

Made-in-America marijuana is on a roll.

More than half the states have now voted to permit pot for recreational or medical use, most recently Oregon, Alaska and the District of Columbia.

As a result, Americans appear to be buying more domestic marijuana, which in turn is undercutting growers and cartels in Mexico, reports John Burnett of NPR, National Public Radio.

“Two or three years ago, a kilogram [2.2 pounds] of marijuana was worth $60 to $90,” says Nabor, a 24-year-old pot grower in the northwestern Mexican state of Sinaloa. “But now they’re paying us $30 to $40 a kilo. It’s a big difference. If the U.S. continues to legalize pot, they’ll run us into the ground.”

A veteran cannabis reporter at High Times confirms the trend.

“American pot smokers prefer American domestically grown marijuana to Mexican grown marijuana. We’ve seen a ton of evidence of this in the last decade or so,” says Daniel Vinkovetsky, who writes under the pen name Danny Danko. He is senior cultivation editor at High Times and author of The Official High Times Field Guide to Marijuana Strains.

U.S. domestic marijuana, some of it cultivated in high-tech greenhouses, is three or four times more expensive than Mexican marijuana. Vinkovetsky says prices for Mexican weed continue to slide because it’s so much weaker.

He says American cannabis typically has 10 to 20 percent THC — the ingredient that makes a person high — whereas the THC content of so-called Mexican “brick weed” is typically 3 to 8 percent.

i don’t often see mexican brick weed, but i don’t see why someone would wish you luck on finding 10 pounds of anything. i don’t even move tree anymore but know for a fact i could make a few phone calls and procure a large quantity of decent quality commercial weed (not even compressed), assuming i have cash of-course. maybe, “good luck finding a 10 pound front”.

if you got cash you will find the connects. just get back into the game a little bit i suppose.

No mex brick is still around. 400 a lb in my area. though hybridizing with indicas and getting dense uncompressed bud is quite common now days, most of the true bricks are coming out of Columbia imo

Its sad really. I miss the good brick, its an art that was developed overtime to allow stringy sativas to cure wonderfully and allow you to smoke the strings of calyxes with ease.. I only grow land races, many do not appreciate the art and tradition in bricking. It wasn’t developed by cartels for smuggling. Quality brick tastes delicious and is very potent.. sadly most of the country never sees the good stuff as it doesn’t leave the border states and the true dank rarely leaves Mexico
