This year, LPs will quadruple their outdoor harvests in what Cannalyst Craig “GoBlueCdn” Wiggins called a “harvest tsunami,” but that doesn’t mean they’ll be able to sell what they harvest. In a detailed note, Wiggins warned barriers in the Canadian sector will prevent the volume of outdoor product from flooding the market.

  • Outdoor crops are used largely for extraction into 2.0 products, but existing gluts of oil and flower, and LPs with extractors of their own, mean fewer buyers.
  • Though some producers will offer outdoor flower and prerolls, the lower-THC content of outdoor product will disappoint consumers who generally buy with high THC in mind.
  • In short, the outdoor growers who already have production/distribution deals are the safest.
