Qwest wants to be known for “Ultra Premium” products. Arguably, we believe they have one of the best tasting products on the market. Combining visual appeal, scent, taste and “high” effects, Qwest is one of the the best and most expensive.
Is it worth the price? It is hard to justify the price. FIGR may not taste as refined but FIGR hits even harder and considerably cheaper to Qwest. For the price conscious, RIFF’s DT81 is very competitive on the effects side. But, if you are a fan of Cannabis, Qwest delivers a unique product and experience albeit at a ridiculous cost. MAC 1 is an elitist strain ….
Cost: $66.95 for 3.5 grams
MAC 1 has a reputation on the Internet and we are glad we tried it. For those of you who would not ever try this, DT81 will make sure nothing is missed for an equivalent effect experience. DT81, however, is not tasty as MAC 1 by Qwest but it cost half as much. Both provide a very satisfying experience. But, MAC 1 is a more unique strain, which is invaluable to expanding our strain horizon at a painful cost.
On an investment note, we respect cultivars striving to be the best as a reflection of their connection to the herb. Cannabis, however, should not cost $535 an ounce. Most people would pass on even trying as a matter of principle. It is hard to see a business surviving on selling at these prices given cannabis prices are falling as fast as their growers’ plunging stock prices. We believe long term sustainable pricing is around $300 to $400 an ounce for the highest quality as benched marked by Broken Coast and Whistler Medical Marijuana Corp..
