In the last six months, consistency has plagued LPs as we see THC percentage dropping. With Raider Kush, the THC has dropped almost 10%. Unfortunately, we did not have the opportunity to try their high test batch. Based on what we have, Raider Kush is what you would expect from a normal Indica. This strain from RIFF will provide stress relief and relaxes your body. At below $10 a gram, this is a price point that is competitive with the grey market.
Cost: $33.45 for 3.5 grams
It appears growing cannabis is a challenging endeavour. The lowering of THC yields have affected the top growers like Broken Coast and Whistler Medical. It probably is not fun growing cannabis under a public umbrella. It is hard to imagine there is no pressure on Broken Coast or Whistler Medical growers. A public company means the need to perform and continuing growth with profitability. It appears the THC yield problem seems to be plaguing public LPs. Is this extreme lower THC yield the result of pressure to perform for RIFF and Aphria? What’s going on?
On an investment note, Christmas is here. The recent quarterly results from Canopy and Aurora have sank the industry sentiments. What are they thinking? If you grow they will buy? Do you know what cannabis consumers want? It is not edibles. It is not low grade bush weed. LPs and investors in the public market talk about capacity, production cost as recipes to a profitable future. These are the wrong metrics for selecting winners in the cannabis space.
We believe the winner is the grower with the BEST cannabis. Nothing more nothing less. If you don’t use cannabis, than you have no idea what we are talking about and should not be in the cannabis industry. We dedicate ourselves to this view because we believe a successful business is built on strong products or services. We evaluate the product first before the financial metrics. You, the daily user, is in the best position to pick the winners by product offering. Any financial problem that may exist is fixable. Not able to grow the herb is a problem that is not easily fixable. It is not easy growing the best herb. You know the herb you know the winners. So easy.
While Raider Kush is not the best herb of it’s type, this is another decent product from Aphria. Ya doing good, Aphria.
