Once the chicago board of trade lists cannabis futures, the last vestiges of the empire will be gone. But yeah, it will be traded in bulk like any commodity; by grade and availability. But there will also be craft sellers that don't sell in bulk. Pricing will be affected by commodity pricing, but it will still be it's own product. You won't get $50/gallon for organic, humanely produced milk when the supermarket sells it for $2/gallon. It's too big a gap. Also, the craft beer experience brought out an interesting strategy in the mega brewers. Astro-turfing. In essence they created marketing labels that looked and sounded like craft beers, but which were in fact brewed by ab and miller. More flavor, sure, but just another brand to the big kids. Same thing will happen with cannabis. You will see craft labelled product from the mega farms that will be hard to distinguish from yours. Only it will sell at a lower price because their costs are lower per unit and their distribution system is better. They have the shelf space, you don't.
