-

Kush’s reign as the market’s top strain continued in May. Kush has now been the month’s most submitted strain for 15 of the last 17 months. Purps edged out Diesel to take second place in May – its highest finish since September 2011 when it also bested Diesel. Cheese made the top five for the second straight month. However, it traded places with Haze and finished $69 below its previous month’s average. The top five strains (with average price) were: Kush ($374), Purps ($383), Diesel ($375), Haze ($396), and Cheese ($295).

The Original Cash Crop: bushy, tasty, frosty!

Index Watch: While the Mids Index held steady – and finished close to its year-to-date average – the US Price and Kind indices both experienced drops in May (-$12 and -$19 respectively). However, both indices finished the month very close to their year-to-date averages.

CURRENT US PRICE INDEX: $325 (last month: $337, Year-to-Date: $327)

CURRENT SCHWAG INDEX ($1-$149 PER OZ): $95 ($104, $101)

“Not my favorite phenotype but great all the same – organic bud with piney/hashy overtones. Indica all the way.”

Like a Gunshot blast!

“One joint in your back pocket will stink up an entire club! Good stuff!”

“Harsh smoking and not very potent but it is great for cooking…”
