45 5.4 Cannabis Key Points The median price of hydroponically grown cannabis was $30 per gram and $450 per ounce, the same as reported in 2010. The median price for a gram of bush cannabis was $15 per gram and $210 per ounce, a reduction from 2010 prices. The majority of participants able to comment rated cannabis availability as easy or very easy. As in 2010, the majority of participants able to comment rated hydro potency as high and bush cannabis potency as medium. 5.4.1 Price Recent cannabis prices are presented in Table 35. In contrast to 2010 when the median price of grams of hydro and bush cannabis were equal at $30, in 2011 the median price of a gram of hydro remained stable at $30 while the median price of a gram of bush cannabis halved to $15, although there were far fewer purchasers of this form of cannabis. The median price of an ounce of hydro also remained stable at $450 while the median price of an ounce of bush cannabis reduced from $300 in 2010 to $210 in 2011, again with few purchasers.
