As you probably figured, wax is more expensive. According to an ANIMAL feature published in May, GrowLife Inc. CEO Kyle Tracey said that marijuana in Southern California typically cost between $15 and $20 per gram, compared to a range between $70 and $100 in dabs. What's more, the ANIMAL piece noted that the price of marijuana was higher on the East Coast due to the risk of doing business illegally. Tracey, a New Jersey native, added that wax would soon be making its way East.
