Today I wanted to discuss current weed prices in the UK, and ask how much does weed cost in the UK, anyway?
The question “How Much does weed cost in the UK?” is something which keeps cropping up in our comments section, in one form or another.
Before we start, it is important to note that this is not a definitive guide. The price will differ from area to area. It is also likely to rise, so if you’re reading this in 5 years and everything seems cheap – don’t say I didn’t tell you so!
In summary, the prices are high, and they’re only getting higher. When I first began consuming cannabis I was paying £20 for just under an eighth – I’m paying twice that on average now.
Other people pay even more, with US-imported “Cali Weed” selling for over £100/eighth (especially if it’s in a tin).
Some people, of course, pay less, particularly if they are or know a grower, or are a member of a collective, which makes the price of cannabis well under £10 per gram for some! Others can only dream of these prices as they continue to pay higher and higher prices.
This is, of course, a problem of prohibition, and one which I discuss in more detail in the video.
