Falling prices in California, Oregon, and Nevada have been primarily responsible for the downturn in the U.S. Spot Index so far this year, outweighing gradual gains in the more mature licensed adult-use markets of Colorado and Washington State. With upward momentum in the latter appearing to level off in recent weeks, further downward pressure on the national average could come from the Evergreen State in the near future.

The national volume-weighted price for flower to be sold in adult-use markets this week continued the downward slide that commenced in  late February on decreases in California, Washington State, Nevada, and Alaska. Upticks in the medical markets of Arizona, Michigan, Illinois, and Maine – as well as a few other smaller markets – drove up the national price for product designated for registered patients recorded this week.
