The U.S. Spot Index ticked upward this week, by 1.1%, to settle at $1,157 per pound, which was also the monthly average price for January. This month marks the second consecutive one in which the national monthly mean has risen, after slipping to its annual low for 2018 in November. Still, January 2019’s monthly rate is down by almost 14% compared to a year ago, when the U.S. Spot averaged $1,343 per pound in the same month in 2018. California and Alaska were the only two state markets covered by our reporting to see declines in their Spot Indices this week, while that of Nevada was flat compared to last week.

The national volume-weighted price for flower to be sold in adult-use markets rose this week. Rising rates in Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and Massachusetts outweighed decreases in that sector of the market in California, as well as in Alaska. Decreasing wholesale rates in the medical section of California’s market were almost wholly responsible for the dip in the national price for product designated for registered patients recorded this week.
