The 2018 year begin in Oregon with some concerning news, and it had to do with the large amount of cannabis flower in the Metrc system.
There were people, like yours truly, that predicted this! The amount of licensed cultivation facilities in Oregon is WAY TO MANY! The outdoor & light dep community produced so much cannabis flower that the entire OLCC program is overwhelmed. Growers needing to sale, wholesalers needing to liquidate, and retailers buying at great prices. And lots of flower still on the shelves.
Each day indoor growers are taking down harvests, curing, and moving to retailers too. So, how does this play out? The "word" is that the Governor's office is going to cap license numbers to stop the beating the industry is taking from TOO MUCH product!
